Expert review by:



Contrary to what you might expect from its name, the OKI MB491+LP ($549 direct), a monochrome multifunction printer (MFP), isn't simply the OKI MB491 with a little something extra tacked on. It actually claims a faster speed, at 47 pages per minute...

Prints, copies, scans, faxes. 50-page duplexing (two-sided) automatic document feeder. Duplex printing. Legal-size flatbed

Although fast enough so speed isn't an issue, it's a little slow for the price and rated engine speed

With its duplexing automatic document feeder and legal-size flatbed, the OKI MB491+LP delivers far more scan and copy capability than most small office MFPs.

The top-of-the-line model in the OKI MB401 series, the OKI MB491 monochrome laser MFP delivers relatively heavy-duty print, scan, copy, and fax capability for a small office.

Prints, scans, copies, faxes. 50-page automatic document feeder. Duplex (two-sided) printing

Although not slow enough for speed to be an issue, it's a little slow for the price and rated engine speed
