OKI says its B411dn offers ‘fast, affordable mono printing for every small business'.
The printer packs a 330MHz processor and ships with 64MB of memory as standard. And like the Canon and Xerox contenders in this round-up the OKI can be upgraded with up to 320MB of memory for when an organisation's print loads increase. If you're concerned about expandability then the OKI ticks all the right boxes.
On the interface front as well the OKI is fully-featured as it offers parallel, USB and Ethernet connectivity, so regardless of your offices' setup you'll be able to get busy printing in no time.
The B411dn's print engine is rated at 33ppm and offers a 2400 x 600dpi maximum print resolution. Starting with our 20-page text document the printer immediately established its performance credentials thanks to its speed of 28.5ppm - the fastest in this test. The OKI also managed to produce the first page in eight seconds, the second quickest time here. Moving on to the text and graphics PDF the OKI blew us away once again, managing a print speed of 22.5ppm - the fastest performance by far.
Considering the printer's performance, interface options and the fact that it, like the Canon and Xerox models, also offers an automatic duplexer, it's incredibly well priced at a cost of US $360.
