OKI C531dn

 

The OKI C531dn offers fast speed, ample paper handling, and a low running cost.

Speed and paper handling designed for heavy-duty printing in a small office or workgroup. Duplexer (for two-sided printing).

Although text and graphics quality is typical for a color laser-class printer, photo quality is well below par.

If you need better output quality than the OKI C531dn delivers, you should take a look at the Dell 2150cdn. However, if what you need is a workhorse printer, both the OKI C331dn and OKI C531dn deliver faster speed and better paper handling, which can...

OKI C531dn Review and Ratings

 

This low-profile laser-class color printer is relatively fast and has good print quality. The purchase price is quite reasonable, but you'll pay more for the consumables than with some competing models.

Good print quality ; Relatively speedy ; Low profile ; Built-in duplexer ; Settings and options related to security, user tracking, and cost control

Higher than average per-page costs ; No Wi-Fi connectivity

The OKI Data C531dn offers very good print speeds and better-than-average print quality, especially with photos and business graphics (assuming you pay attention to the print-quality settings). The duplex feature is a real asset at this price point,...

OKI Data C531dn Review

 

The OKI C531dn has average print speeds and resolution for a laser printer. It has a standard toner cartridge with a high toner yield, reducing the cost of toner replacement. Overall, this printer cuts down on costs but lacks the speed and resolution...

The standard toner cartridge boasts a high toner yield.

This is a heavy printer with average printing speeds.

This laser printer reduces printing costs but produces average print speeds and print resolution.

OKI C531dn

 

The OKI C531dn delivers a balance of speed, paper handling and output quality suitable for a heavy-duty color workhorse printer by small to medium-size office standards.

OKI rates the C531dn at 31 pages per minute (ppm) for monochrome and 27 ppm for color, which should be close to the speeds you’ll see when you print text pages or other material that doesn’t need significant processing time. On our business...
