Oki Printing Solutions C5500n LED Printer (24 PPM, 1200x600 DPI, Color, 64MB, PC/Mac)

 

The Oki Printing Solutions C5500n shares the distinctive design of the company's networked color printers, but this particular model combines good paper handling, fast performance, and economical running costs, at a reasonable price of $595 (as of...

Fast printing ; Good paper handling

Poor grayscale printing

This midpriced GDI-based printer offers dual paper trays and fast print speeds, especially for graphics.

Oki C5500n review

 

The Oki C5500n is a network-ready, color laser printer that's geared for small work groups and home users with high volume-printing needs. Its $630 price is a bit steep, especially considering it doesn't have a built-in duplexer or an automatic...

Quick at all printing tasks; overall excellent print quality; handles legal-size paper; networkable; two standard input options; straight paper pass through; generous support options.

No ADF or built-in duplexer (duplexer optional); expensive for a single-function color laser printer; some color-handling problems in graphics.

The Oki C5500n is an excellent networked color laser printer, but it's pricey. For just a little more, you can get a color laser multifunction.

Oki Printing Solutions C5500n

 

Fast printing and high paper capacity make the C5500n a good choice for a busy small office.

Fast speed. Better-than-average paper capacity. Ethernet connection. Optional duplexer.

Its shiny toner reflects light and makes text hard to read at some angles in certain lighting conditions.

Oki Data C5500n Network-Ready Color Laser Printer Review and Prices

 

The Oki Data C5500n may not wow you with its print quality, particularly on photos and other images, but it's a good workhorse for a home office or small business. This color laser printer is also a smart choice if speed is more important than...

Fast output, reasonably good quality output of text and line art, expandable paper capacity and memory, optional duplexer, can print banners up to nearly 4 feet long

Output quality of photos and other graphics is only average

BEST PRINTER EVER !!!

 

Would be nice if there was an easier way to figure out the censor readings & trouble codes.

BEST PRINT QUALITY I've ever seen from ANY laser printer ; I owned a magazine for several years & we used c5200 & c5500 machines exclusively. Even the BIG Pro. printers could not compete in quality of color prints

Censer notifications can be hard to translate or figure out

Good Printer

 

Would be nice if it had wireless connectivity.

We've had this printer for about a year and it does good quality and vivid prints in both color and black

The paper loading mechanism failed after a year. We were not sure if it was a sensor issue but it kept reporting that the front cover was open and prevented the paper from feeding properly which in turn will end up as a paper jam

Great buisness class printer

 

We use 2-Oki Laser printers c5200 and c5500 and 1-High end HP Laser printer for our office. We use all of them frequently with each averaging around 1000 to 2000 pages per month sometimes more. The Oki printers are preferered by my staff for speed and...

Better than Ink Jets

 

Has a built in network card so you have to install a new printer port on your computer using the IP address of the printer. I have never emptied an ink jet cartridge when I used to use them; they usually dried up before I could use all the ink; this...

I have been using this printer for over a year and have not had any issues with it. The printing is clear and the colors are accurate. Don't let toner prices sway you away from this printer, if you compare the copy cost with ink jets you will find that...

The toner cartridges that come with the printer are less than half full so they will not last very long. Mine lasted about 10 months and I expect the new high capacity ones to last well over two years, maybe three
