A small office that needs a space-saving device for document production will find the Oki MC562dnw very useful. The Oki MC562dnw A4 multifunction wireless colour printer ensures lower ownership costs without compromising output sharpness and quality. The good combination of features help streamline productivity while making the device versatile for a growing workgroup. However, this model tends to be slow. The Oki MC562dnw colour laser printer also lacks crucial features that could compromise its overall efficiency for the expanding office.
The Oki MC562dnw printer resembles most of its all-in-one siblings because of its universal design, but it stands out because of Super G3 capability on the fax machine and a more flexible duplexer. Powered by a 533MHz processor, the device runs on 256MB of RAM expandable up to 768MB, and the standard interfaces are two USB 2.0 ports and a 10/100 TX Ethernet hub. The MC562dnw colour multifunction printer weighs 29Kg and measures 509mm deep, 427mm wide, and 44mm tall. The operator panel is slightly busy with one-touch keys and function buttons, an alphanumeric keypad, and a full QWERTY keypad. The machine's status is viewable on the blue backlit LCD display.
Print speeds in monochrome are fast, at up to 30ppm without compromising the sharpness and clarity of text, graphics, and barcodes. More types of media are supported. The Oki MC562dnw A4 LED laser printer has a range of user-friendly software tools for easy management, usage control, and reduced user intervention. Wireless networking can be configured for faster document processing from wireless devices. The 33.6Kbps fax of the Oki MC562dnw wireless multifunction printer supports Super G3 message transmissions. A 4GB or a 16GB SDHC memory card can further increase the memory capacity of the printer. For cheaper output costs users can opt for high capacity Oki MC562dnw toner cartridges.
Sluggish warm-up times and colour print speeds can affect productivity. Additional RAM and paper capacity for the MC562dnw colour MFP can be expensive to purchase. Though aimed at medium-sized workgroups, the Oki MC-562dnw MFP has an outdated processor that may be insufficient when more than ten users are already connected to it. Operating noise can be problematic for quiet offices.
