The Okidata 8w is a laser printer that is short on frills and advanced features, but also very affordable. It won't win speed races, with a print speed of only 8 pages per minute, but it offers reliable performance and good print quality at a price that is more in line with an inkjet. The cost of printer toner is very affordable as well, thanks to the low price of Okidata 8w toner. Multiple models are available. The 8iM includes networking options, the 8p and 8Plus include extra paper capacity, the 8w includes wireless support, and the 8z includes nearly all of the previous features.
The 8w actually uses LED technology, very similar to a laser, to produce its output. The result is a model with 600 dpi resolution that produces sharp prints, even given its low price. The compact design of the unit is also an advantage, particularly for home users and those with limited desk space. The 100-sheet paper capacity might be small for some buyers, but it helps the compactness of the machine.
When it comes to toners, buyers will find the Okidata 8w toner cartridges are also affordable. OkiPage 8w toner cartridges also have a large page yield of 1,500, which means users won't have to replace them too often. The low cost and capacity of OkiPage 8w toner combine to give it a very low cost per page.
Compared to competing models, the 8w's main advantages are its low price and compact size. Busy office users will likely choose a more robust model, but the 8w is well-suited for home users or small office users who need basic functionality and don't have a large budget.
Overall, the 8w is a very impressive and affordable machine that produces solid output. The cost savings provided by Okidata 8w toner is a nice bonus.
