The desktop-friendly Okidata C310dn color laser class printer uses LED technology instead of a laser for fewer moving parts, but still offers similar performance, at speeds of up to 24 pages per minute. It also offers network sharing, but it is a bit bulkier in size than some competitors, and the cost of Oki C310dn printer toner might be a bit much for small offices to handle.
The unit measures 9.5 inches tall, with a footprint of 16.1x19.8 inches, so it is a little on a bulky side for a "desktop" printer, though its weight of 46.3 pounds is manageable. The control panel on the top of the device consists of only a two-line backlit LCD, directional menu buttons, and On Line and Cancel buttons, with a Ready light and Attention light. Users do get an indication on the screen of the level of Okidata C310dn toner remaining. This simple design works fairly well for a dedicated printer, as most of the options are set in the driver software on a PC.
As the model name implies, the C310dn includes both automatic duplexing for two-sided prints, and a network port for sharing among multiple users, which is an upgrade from the C310 base model. The standard input paper capacity is 350 sheets, with upgradability to a maximum of 880 sheets, and the unit is compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms.
Costly replacement toners are often the main downside of desktop color laser models, and Okidata C310dn toner cartridges are fairly expensive to replace. Even with a 3,000-page yield for each color supply, and 3,500 pages for black, users might want to consider remanufactured Oki C310dn toner cartridges as a cost-saving alternative to the pricey OEM versions.
Overall, the Oki C310dn offers pretty impressive speeds and solid output quality, but its design is a little bulky and it doesn't offer many advanced features beyond its duplexing and networking. For a small office that can handle the cost of supplies, it could be a good choice for basic color printing.
