The Okidata MB461 multifunction laser printer is quite robust for a small-office device, with speeds of up to 33 pages per minute and excellent scanning and copying functionality. Running costs are fairly affordable, thanks to large-capacity Oki MB461 printer toner, and multiple models offer a bit of flexibility in features.
The base model is referred to as the MB461 MFP, to denote its classification as a multi-function printer. It comes with an ethernet port for sharing on a wired network, and a USB 2.0 port is included for those who wish to use it for personal use. The design of the machine is compact, but may be a little large for desktop use, measuring 17.9x16.8x16.7 inches.
While the unit includes scanning, copying, and printing functions, it lacks traditional faxing. Instead, the software includes the ability to send faxes over the internet, which is a decent compromise, especially as many offices are doing away with faxing altogether. One of the model's best features is its large, 50-sheet reversing automatic document feeder, which can scan or copy a stack of paper in a short amount of time, and it can even handle two-sided sheets, though this does slow down scanning time somewhat.
Unlike the small and expensive toners of the MB451 model, Okidata MB461 toner cartridges are not only more affordable, but offer higher page yields. Each Oki MB461 toner cartridge can provide up to 4,000 pages, which translates to a low cost per page, and also means replacing the Okidata MB461 toner less frequently.
For a small office on a budget, the Oki MB461 combines a low purchase price with low operating costs, without sacrificing important features. Users who need faxing will need to look elsewhere, but its LAN faxing feature is a good compromise for occasional use.
