When you spend $500 or $600 on a multifunction color laser-class printer (I say “laser-class” because some models use LEDs in place of lasers, which are cheaper to manufacture) with a high monthly duty cycle, you expect to use it, right? The reason for buying such a high-volume machine is, among other things, to take advantage of its higher-end features, such as high print speed, high capacity, high print quality, and a low cost per page (CPP).
For a number of reasons, small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs) often choose midlevel multifunction laser-class printers, like the topic of this review, OKI Data’s $549-list MC362w. Overall, the MC362w is a nice printer. It delivers good print quality at competitive speeds, but compared to some other high-volume models, such as HP’s Officejet Pro X576dw Multifunction Printer, Epson’s Workforce Pro WF-4630 All-in-One Printer, and some other high-volume inkjets, it comes up wanting’especially in terms of print quality and CPP.
