Expert review by : M. David Stone (



The OKI MB471 delivers heavy-duty print, scan, copy, and fax capability for a micro or small office at a notably low running cost given the initial price.

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

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

OKI MB471w Review: Competitive Class Addition

Quality prints ; Affordable ; Good blend of features

Less intuitive menus ; Lack of mobile print offerings

Easy to use

The printer drum went out after 5 months of normal use and it costs around $165 plus to replace. Oki said their warranty covers the printer but not the drum. I do not plan on doing business with this company anytime soon
