The Oki C110 is a simple, economical colour laser printer.
For anyone seeking quick clear text, the simple mono laser has had a lot give you recently. Nevertheless let's say, whilst most of your requirements may just centre around words, every now you are feeling the need to successfully print completely in colour? Colour lasers are likely to be somewhat pricey, whilst getting an inkjet as well as a new mono laser could definitely require a quite substantial desk.
Oki isn't a business recognized for its affordable pricing approach, however here, it created an incredibly economical laser in the C110 which concentrates upon strong text capabilities, but could likewise handle several colour prints when the need arises.
A clear euphemism for the C110, pertaining to it as a user friendly no-frills printer that is.With todays varying and rather current printers, its old fashioned, outdated and rough finishing is nothing comparable to the sleek curves and smooth lines of the current printers in the market. At first, we were positive that the output tray of the Oki C110 appeared to be either inverted or perhaps back to front, while the input tray seem merely half finished. On the other hand, they do the job very well.
The C110's input tray can easily handle as much as two hundred sheets, which isn't bad for a low priced laser - and even puts some inkjets to disgrace. One thing I noticed with this printer is its habit of not always fully propelling the printed sheets to the output tray.
Paper Jams have never been an issue, despite some clear reservations. More of a problem has been the Oki C110's propensity to set Letter as default paper size - if this had not been checked and adjusted, A4 print jobs was going forward at the beginning, only for the printer to start flailing just after the second sheet.
The moment we were aware about this, the Oki C110 worked reliably - however it's not the quietest of printers, it makes a very bothersome siren effect while in operation.
The Oki C110's toner cartridges are available in one capacity 2,500-page black toner cartridge and a high yield 2,500-page for each of the three colours.
The Oki C110 model only comes with a USB 2., even though an improved model, the Oki C130n, priced at around £60 more, offers Ethernet support, duplex features (for automatically printing to each sides of the paper), as well as the choice of stepping up the paper input from 200 to 700 sheets.
Oki seems to have put in lots of time making sure the Oki C110's text abilities are up to scratch.
If you're in need of a text printer, then the Oki C110 is definitely a bang for your buck. It isn't so impressive as a colour model, however the palette appeared fairly realistic - if only a bit light in some places - this would compare well with many printers. Printing at 2.5 pages per minute, is really sluggish for a laser, but again few inkjets could match this type of results in their highest quality mode.
The Oki C110s running costs aren't really low, but at 2-2.5p for a page of mono (close to 1p more for colour) still makes this a fairly inexpensive printer to operate - compared to the typical inkjet in particular.
