The Okidata C3600 is a color laser printer designed for the small to medium office environment. It has fast speeds and good print quality, but is larger than competing products and has fewer features for the price. An upgraded model that offers more value is the Oki C5500 toner printer.
The OKI C3600 is not really a bulky printer but it is bigger and heavier than many competing printers. This may not be much of a concern for some buyers, but for a small office, every inch can count. The printer measures 11.4 inches by 14.7 inches by 18.8 inches and weighs around 46 pounds. The printer connects via USB, and in the case of its "n" model, includes a built-in ethernet port for sharing across a network of computers.
Okidata C3600 toner capacities are 1,500 pages for black and 1,000 pages for each color cartridge. High-yield versions for the Okidata C3600 toner cartridges are available at 2,500 pages for black and 2,000 pages for each color, offering a much more economical option. Print speed is quite good, at 15 pages per minute for black prints, and 12 pages per minute for color prints. Text quality is excellent, with sharp and defined characters all the way down to the smallest font sizes. Graphics quality is generally good, and color accuracy and blending are impressive.
One aspect in which the OKI C3600 excels above its competition is processing power. It includes a 400 MHz processor and 128 MB of memory, which allows it to process larger print jobs than other laser printers in its class. The memory can also be expanded to a maximum of 640 MB, but most small offices will never need to upgrade it.
Overall, the Okidata C3600 is a very solid color printer. It has good speed and excellent quality. Its larger size and weight than competing products may be an issue for smaller spaces, and expensive toner cartridges will add to its operating costs.
