After working with a group of professionals recently who swore that laser-class output is superior to that of an inkjet printer, I’m reminded how uninformed much of the printer-buying public is about the current state of printer technology. The truth is that when it comes to overall vibrancy, brightness, and detail, most laser-class machines can’t come close to a good inkjet printer’s output.

Yet another myth that needs busting every now and then is that laser-class machines are faster and cheaper to use than inkjet models.

At one time that was true, but it hasn’t been so for some time—especially when it comes to entry-level and midrange laser-class machines. There are laser-class machines out there, however, such as the topic of this review, OKI Data’s $749 MSRP MC562w Color MFP, that do often match and sometimes out-perform high-volume inkjet models. For those times when, for one reason or another, the output must be laser-class, the MC562w will get the job done.
