OKI C7000 series

All three models provide a true print resolution of 600x1200dpi via a print engine capable of speeds up to 12 pages per minute in full colour and 20 pages per minute in monochrome.

Apart from the 2MB of flash memory, standard memory is 64MB (upgradeable to a massive 1024MB). Standard paper handling is for 630 sheets, which can be expanded to 1690 sheets with optional second and third 530-sheet paper trays. Image processing is handled by a 64-bit 400MHz PowerPC 750 processor with a dedicated accelerator for RIP processing, colour management and data compression. This is complemented by the use of one-pass technology to apply the image to the page. Previously, multi-pass printing was used, which inhibited performance as well as restricting the weight of the paper which could be used.

C7000 series printers can handle paper weights from 60 to 200gsm and can be configured with a duplex unit, which is standard on the C7200dn. The printer itself has a life of 600,000 pages or five years with a recommended maximum usage of 50,000 pages per month, while the toner cartridges each have a capacity of 10,000 pages of A4 coverage. The toner used is not of the standard variety, as OKI has found a way to remove the oil in the toner and replace it with wax, resulting in a transparent quality which should enhance overhead transparency printouts.

This printer can also be optioned up to improve its functionality and performance with enhancements such as the above-mentioned duplex unit, RAM upgrades, extra paper trays or an internal hard drive to be used for storing forms, letterheads, logos, etc., which can be downloaded directly to the printer from the network. Definitely worth considering for the network or standalone environment with heavy colour needs.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
