Brief review of the OKI C531dn
This printer is considered to be ideal for a small to medium-sized business whose requirements include speedy colour prints. There is a good array of features including the latest LED technology and will compliment any busy office. The OKI C531dn also offers duplex printing (double-sided). Additional features include the ability to print envelopes and will hold 100 A4 paper in its multi-purpose paper tray. The flexibility in offering high capacity cartridges makes this OKI a popular buy with small to medium-sized businesses across the country, especially with the added value of using compatible OKI C531dn toner. The design offers easy user control on its angled screen and while it more resembles a box in appearance it produces the goods consistently. Unfortunately some people may find the 60 second warm up time from idle a little too long and it can sound a little on the noisy side but all in all it is a widely popular printer and will fit easily into any office or workspace.
