The Okidata C9800 is a color laser printer for high-volume office environments. Its massive paper capacity and lightning fast speeds allow it to keep up with even the most demanding users. Its size and upfront cost may be an issue for some buyers.
If there is any doubt that the OKI C9800 is built for high-volume environments, one look at its specifications will clarify the issue. The printer comes with a 1 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM installed as standard. This ensures that the printer is capable of doing even the most intensive processing without the need for a host computer. The printer also comes with a 20 GB hard drive for storing and caching print jobs. Its monthly duty cycle is 150,000 pages, so it can handle an extremely high volume of printing per month. For lower volume office printing, look toward the Okidata C5200 toner printer.
The printer comes standard with a 760-sheet input paper capacity, with 530 sheets in its universal tray, and another 230 sheets in a multipurpose tray. The C9800 is very expandable as well, as users can add a number of different expansion trays for a total of 2,880 sheets of input. Its various trays can support a wide variety of media types and weights, and sizes as large as tabloid extra, which is 12 x 18 inches.
The real downside of the Okidata C9800 may be its expensive upfront price, which places it out of range of all but the largest offices with the budget to afford it. It is worth noting that operating costs are low, however, especially using third-party compatible printer toner, rather than the more expensive Okidata C9800 toner cartridges. Each Okidata C9800 toner cartridge has a capacity of 15,000 pages, great for high-volume environment. Print speed is an extremely fast 40 pages per minute in monochrome, and 36 pages per minute in color. This makes it one of the fastest color printers on the market. Its quality is top notch as well, as the printer uses a 1200 dpi printing engine.
Overall, the Okidata C9800 is an excellent printer with massive paper capacity, fast speeds, and excellent expandability. High-volume offices will find a lot to like about it, but low-volume users should look at the LaserJet CP1215 toner printer.
