The Okidata OkiOffice 84 is a robust multifunction laser printer that can also fax, copy, and scan. Its monochrome-only design prohibits color printing, and many of its functions are basic, but it has a fairly fast printing speed of up to 8 pages per minute, and the low printer toner costs make it a good value, thanks to inexpensive Okidata 84 toner.
The 84 has a fairly compact design that will probably appeal to home users or small office users with limited working space. It measures 7.5 inches by 12.4 inches by 15.1 inches and it is not particularly heavy, making it easy enough to move without help. Printing and faxing seem to be the main focus, with a sharp 600 dpi printing resolution providing excellent print quality. Faxing is limited to 300 dpi, which still delivers very readable output, but the main drawback is the limitation of the 14.4 Kbps transmission rate, which is slower than many competing models.
The 84 really shines when it comes time to replace toners, as OkiOffice 84 toner cartridges are very affordable. Despite the small design of the unit, Okidata 84 toner cartridges have a fairly large capacity of 1,500 sheets, so they don't have to be replaced often. Using compatible OkiOffice 84 toner is another way to lower costs even more.
Compared to other similar models, the 84's main advantage is in its compact design and simplicity. Though its speeds are not fast, the output quality is very sharp, and the low cost of Okidata 84 toner makes it more economical than much of its competition.
Overall, the Okidata 84 is a solid choice for the home or small office user with fairly basic needs. It can handle the major tasks that an individual or small office would need, though some of its limitation might lead some buyers to an upgraded model.
