Built for low-volume monochrome laser printing, the Oki B401 A4 printer delivers crisp prints and sharp black and white graphics and images. It offers fast print rates and is a reliable choice for workgroups looking for a high-performance printer to do their day-to-day print requirements. The Oki B401 monochrome laser printer is not built for network sharing, though its DN version offers easy network installation. The Oki B-401 can print at high resolution rates of up to 2400x600 dpi but is only limited to black and white printing.
The Oki B401 is very compact, measuring only about 24.5x38.7x26.4 inches. It is designed for heavy-duty use, with a maximum duty cycle of up to 30,000 impressions per month, though it is only recommended for 750 to 2,000 pages per month use. It has a large 64MB internal memory, and it can be connected via its USB and parallel interfaces. The Oki B401 has a simple control panel, which sits on top of the unit.
Print speed is a premier advantage for the Oki B401 A4 mono desktop printer. It can produce as many as 29 pages per minute, even when using high-resolution print modes. The Oki B401 mono laser printer has versatile connectivity, though an upgrade is required if you want to have network connectivity. The B401 printer has duplex printing as standard feature and it is very affordable to run thanks to the high capacity black Oki B401 laser toner.
However, the Oki B401 can only do black and white printing. Although the B401 offers an impressive maximum monthly duty cycle of 30,000 prints, it is recommended to only print 2,000 pages per month to preserve its lifespan. Consequently, the Oki B401 could be out of its depth in larger offices.
