OKI MC873dn

 

The OKI MC873dn is a capable color laser-class MFP designed to print, copy, scan, and fax at up to tabloid size.

Can handle massive print jobs. Prints, copies, scans, and faxes at up to tabloid size. 100-sheet reversing ADF. Built-in hard drive. 7-inch color touch screen. 5-year warranty

Subpar output quality across the board. Limited paper capacity for an MFP at its price. Other solutions may be more cost-effective

The OKI MC873dn ($3,999) is a rarity among color laser multifunction printers (MFPs) in that it can print (as well as copy, scan, and fax) at up to tabloid (11-by-17-inch) size, an ability that accounts for the printer's hefty price and humongous size....

Could use more finishing options, wireless is only optional.

OKI Printers – A3, MC873 - first looks

 

A3, A4, A5, A6 and 1.3m banners, 256gsm card capable, 7” easy to use screen, OKI quality and a reasonable price. Bang for buck – makes this a workgroup laser that is a leader in its class.

Brilliant

 

Best thing we have ever done was buy this printer, it makes life some much easier in the hub we can now do everything with just the one printer instead of having 3-4 printers which kept breaking down and being temperamental.
