Oki B2500 review

 

The Oki B2520 MPF looks like a compelling package at first glance, offering up all the features you'd associate with a multifunction laser printer--print, copy, scan, and fax--plus a couple unexpected extras at a low price. Don't be lured by its song,...

Low price; mailbox option is great for a multiuser environment; front-mounted USB port lets you print from or scan/fax to a USB thumbdrive; good color scan quality; manual feed slot; full QWERTY keyboard lets you input e-mail addresses easily.

Slow task speeds; poor grayscale scan quality; middling graphics print quality; not network-ready; control panel is hard to decipher and not intuitive; text LCD isn't backlit, making it hard to read in low light; per-page costs are high.

The Oki B2520 MFP is a low-cost multifunction that ultimately fails for a variety of reasons, from its poorly implemented control panel to slow, low-quality output. There are better laser multifunctions that won't leave you scratching your head in...
