While the Okidata C510dn certainly sits in the color laser printer category, it actually uses LED technology to produce images, instead of a laser. This can increase reliability, but still gives it comparable quality and speeds of up to 30 pages per minute for color and 26 pages per minute for black. As an upgrade from the C510 base model, it also includes networking and duplexing features.
The C510dn is not only fast at its top speed, but it responds quickly as well, with a first page out time of 8 seconds. Cost-saving features include the duplex feature, which can reduce paper costs by up to 50%, and the ECO mode that reduces the amount of Oki C510dn printer toner per page, as well as energy consumption.
The unit has a straightforward design, with a basic control panel that gets the job done without unnecessary buttons and added confusion. The main tray holds up to 250 sheets, with a multipurpose tray that can hold 100 sheets. An optional tray can be added with a capacity of 530 sheets, that brings the total up to 880 sheets.
Users have the option of connecting the device directly to a Mac or PC via USB. The ethernet port is likely to be the better option, enabling easy sharing, and the device is generally designed for up to 10 shared users in a small office environment.
Replacement toners could get expensive with any king of high-volume printing, as the Okidata C510dn toner cartridges are pricey. Each of the color Oki C510dn toner cartridges provide up to 3,000 pages, while the black supply can provide up to 3,500 pages.
The C510dn is an impressive desktop printer that is easy to share among a small office. It is simple to set up and to use, but the cost of Okidata C510dn toner could put a serious dent in a small office budget.
