The OKI Model MC573DN Multifunction Printer may be a printer designed mostly for text output, but it still has serviceable graphic printing speeds as well. It\u2019s one of the reasons we consider it a best laser printer. Just be aware that, if you want Wi-Fi, you\u2019ll be paying $75.00 extra for it.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - OKI MC573dn\r\nThe OKI MC573DN is a good All-In-One Printer that sports an impressive print speed and high-quality text printouts. The running costs for black and white pages are on-par with the lowest-cost printers in its class, and monochrome photos are good for casual use in or around the office and at home.\r\n\r\nSpeed\r\nThe Print Speed on the OKI MC573DN is impressive. Rated at 30ppm, it can churn out text pages at a rate of 31.4ppm under optimal conditions. Adding in graphics via Excel and PowerPoint documents, print speed averages 14.2ppm which is still pretty fast compared to the competition. If you would like something just a smidge faster, consider the Brother MFC-L2750DW.\r\nPrint Quality\r\nText quality should be fine for most business applications, but be weary of those requiring very small fonts. Graphics are good enough for PowerPoint handouts, but some backgrounds can come out a bit pale. Photo printing is monochrome but not necessarily good enough for marketing materials. If you\u2019d prefer color photos instead, consider the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw.\r\nEfficiency\r\nThe running costs, based on OKI\u2019s price and yields for their toners and drums, is around 2.5 cents per black page and 14.8 cents per color page. The black page running costs is comparably low and is about on par with the Canon imageClass MF424dw. Unfortunately, there is no word on whether there\u2019s an ink subscription program you can join to lower this cost. And considering this is an entry-level printer, there probably isn\u2019t.\r\nAdvanced Features\r\nUSB and Ethernet come loaded as a connectivity option for the OKI MC573DN, but you must purchase a $75.00 Wi-Fi adapter if you wish to connect via your wireless network. However, the printer does come ready with Google Cloud Print 2.0 and Apple AirPrint, so at least you\u2019ll have those options if you\u2019re looking to print, or mostly print, from your phone or tablet.\r\nValue\r\nThe OKI MC573DN provides free download links to Sendys Explorer Lite, a document management program that lets you capture documents, convert them to various formats, and distribute them to email, network folders, and other destinations. It also supports duplex printing so the already massive 350 sheet paper tray can now seem like a whopping 700 sheet tray.\r\nOKI MC573DN Wrap Up\r\nThe OKI MC573DN makes for a great entry level printer for light around the home or office use. And as long as you\u2019re not printing too many color pages running costs should remain stable and on the low end. Although it doesn\u2019t come with Wi-Fi, it does have other useful mobile connectivity features and expansive document managing software.
