OKI’s $3575 colour laser printer is perfect for the SME market and would suit businesses who need high-quality, large-volume colour printouts. It features 10/100 network connectivity with an internal Web server, yet can be connected to a stand-alone PC via parallel or USB interfaces.
Its performance is very good and in our tests we found it was able to pump out 10 pages per minute in normal quality mode. Our test document was a 92-page reviewers guide (Word document) with many graphics and tables in addition to text.
The C5300 weighs 25kg and features four easy-to-install individual toner cartridges, which have a stated service life of 5000 A4 pages (at 5 per cent density), along with a separate drum unit, which is said to have a life of around 22,000 pages. Costs are $218.90 for the cyan, magenta and yellow toners, $93.50 for the black toner and $258 for the drum unit. For support, a standard one-year return to base warranty is provided.
Paper handling is by way of a standard 300-sheet input tray and the exit tray will accommodate 250 sheets. Options for duplexing and higher capacity paper trays are offered.
The unit’s standard measurements are 40x55x34cm (WxDxH).
