  • The LED-based OKI MB492 can be an excellent fit as a heavy-duty monochrome multifunction printer for a micro or small office or as a medium-duty MFP for a midsize office.


  • If for one reason or another you’re locked into laser-class output, OKI’s MB492 Multifunction Printer is a winner on several fronts, especially where it counts.


  • This fast and inexpensive-to-use multifunction mono printer is well-equipped for high-volume print loads, though its lack of Wi-Fi connectivity might be a deal-breaker for some would-be buyers.


  • The LED-based OKI MC770+ Wireless is a good choice as a color MFP for a busy office, with a large paper capacity and solid speed and output quality.


  • In the same category as monochrome laser printers, the LED-based OKI B412dn delivers speed, paper handling, and running cost suitable for a small office or workgroup with heavy-duty print needs.


  • Inexpensive to buy and use, this compact LED printer churns out good-looking prints quickly and cheaply—exactly what an entry-level model of its class should do.


  • OKI has done something with it latest round of laser-class mono machines that eventually all laser printer makers will have to do—lower the cost of using their printers. Printer buyers are not stupid, after all—especially not if they read this column. Frankly, though, if mono laser-equivalent output is what you need, unless this OKI just isn’t high-volume enough for you (in that case, the OKI Data makes others that probably are), I can’t think of a reason not to buy this printer.


  • The LED-based OKI MB472w can serve nicely as a heavy-duty monochrome multifunction printer for a micro or small office or as a medium-duty MFP in a midsize office.


  • A mono MFP built to last, the MB472w delivers a hefty duty cycle, a low per-page cost, and a choice of long-lasting toner cartridges. Only a somewhat retro design in places keeps it from workhorse-laser stardom.


  • The LED-based OKI B512dn, which falls in the same category as monochrome laser printers, delivers a low running cost plus paper handling suitable for moderate use in a midsize office.


  • A very low cost per page and excellent monochrome output set this LED printer above most high-volume models for heavy document printing.


  • Frankly, if you have to buy a laser, it doesn’t get much better than this. As I’ve said over and over about high-volume printers, it’s not the cost of the machine that matters, it’s the operating costs, and the B512dn has one of best CPPs I’ve seen in a laser-class machine in this price range. Good job, OKI.
