OKI MC561

 

The OKI MC561 is a fast, heavy-duty color MFP to anchor a busy small or medium-sized workgroup.

Fast. Standard 350-sheet capacity standard, with 830-sheet maximum. Duplexing ADF. Ethernet connection. QWERTY keypad.

Slightly subpar photos and graphics. Monochrome text-only display.

Convoluted network scanning setup ; Superior text output ; Very fast

Mediocre graphics and scan quality

OKI MC561dn review

The Oki MC561 has much to recommend it - starting with speed, but with price and paper handling following close behind. Graphics quality is undistinguished but probably acceptable for mainstream business use. We'd like it better if it were easier to...

Feature packed and compact, but poor build quality overall

 

I have used this printer for over 12 months, during which I have spent nearly $1000 in supplies. I am a small business and in that year, I have done 3500 prints. I find that this printer is feature-packed, but the quality in comparison to my previous...
