Great Plan - Poor Execution
This review is from: MB451w MFP 120V
Pros: This machine has plenty of features, and was on sale for 129.95 when I purchased it. It was a great deal for the price. The print quality is good and the machine seems to work very well and doesn't have problems with jams.
Cons: The setup process is HORRIBLE for basic users. I'm a techie with plenty of experience building PC's and setting up small networks. It took hours to get this machine set up properly and I had to scour the internet for proper documentation. The on-command fax reception feature only seems to work about 50% of the time. The rest of the time the machine thinks you want to send a fax instead of receive one. Also, the printer has a duty cycle of 50,000 pages per month but they designed it with a toner cartridge that's only good for 1500 pages. It's a decent machine, but there are way better products in the same price range. I've had good luck with Oki products in the past, but I don't think I'll be purchasing anything from them in the future.
Other Thoughts: If you're an IT professional that needs a multi-function machine without a lot of toner capacity, this might be a decent product. For an amateur use, the setup process is a nightmare, and for a professional that does a lot of printing, having to constantly replace toner cartridges is both annoying and expensive in comparison to other units. The $99 Brother printer I bought this to replace had toner cartridges available for 10K page capacity. This one only has 1500 page cartridges.
