For bringing fast and efficient color A3 printing to medium or large offices, buyers should consider the Okidata C9850 multifunction color laser printer. It can handle color at up to 36 pages per minute, or monochrome at up to 40 pages per minute, but high costs for Oki C9850 printer toner could be an issue unless buyers seek third-party alternatives.
Most buyers looking for color are also looking for quality, and the 1200 dpi printing engine produces very sharp and detailed color documents, as well as impressive text and graphics. It includes the EFI Fiery 8e Controller to speed up the color workflow and make the best use of Okidata C9850 toner. It also includes networking via ethernet port, as well as a USB 2.0 port if users need a direct connection.
The standard input paper capacity is 530 sheets, but it can be upgraded to hold as many as 2,120 sheets. Duplex printing is supported for fast two-sided prints, and duplex scanning is supported via the 100-sheet automatic document feeder, which can scan two-sided documents in a single pass, shortening the scanning time.
Purchasing replacement toners can be very painful to the budget when using OEM Oki C9850 toner cartridges, even with their large capacities. Instead, users should consider using remanufactured Okidata C9850 toner cartridges, which provide the same page yield at less than 1/5th of the price. Taking advantage of these inexpensive supplies can actually make the C9850 one of the most cost-effective color printing solutions in its class.
Overall, the Oki C9850 is somewhat of a mixed bag. Its output speed and color printing quality are very impressive, but its upfront cost and supply costs are quite high. Buyers who are seeking a flexible multifunction with sharp and accurate color output should give it a look, but beware its high cost per page for OEM supplies.
