Pros Fast Printer, with High quality color
Cons Okidata supplies tend to be expensive but worth it.
Summary I have had my printer for 1 year now and love it. Performance has been great in regards to color, speed, and durability. Okidata supplies can tend to be expensive but I found a great place for this at www.concordsupplies.com for C5100 / C5150 / C5200 / C5300.
Pros Print Quality
Cons A Little slow to start
Summary I bought a refurb (5100N) despite what another writer said. And sure enough it had a problem. One of the drums were nicked. Oki overnighted new drums and gave me a whole set of new toner. That almost equals the cost of what I paid, in savings down the road. The printer prints great! Although it is somewhat slow on the warmup/first page out, especially color graphics. But do not hesitate to buy this one. As Tony say's, "It's Greeeeaaat!!!"
Pros System very easy to set-up, crisp and clear print quality.
Cons Already had to return original unit for replacement; be aware all factory replacements are "refurbs", not new; it was sent overnight though. Black toner cartridge already needed replacing at less than 500 copies.
Pros Works great for brochures and nice letters...
Cons It gets so hot that it seals my envelopes closed, and all 4 toner cartridges ran out on the same day! That's a $500 trip to the office store
Pros Output is good on all types of paper and has an excellent glossy quality to the finish. Much more compact than the HPs and other color lasers I've seen.
Cons Printer is networked with DHCP and pc driver sometimes has to be refreshed to find the printer again. Original toner cartridges are lower capacity and do wear out fairly fast.
