The MB471w high performance all-in-one printer delivers low running costs together with many time and energy saving features. A fast 35ppm mono printer it offers 1200dpi print quality, flexible media handling and automatic duplex printing as standard. Copying, faxing or scanning single or double sided documents is quick and easy thanks to the MB471w’s Reversing Automatic Document Feeder (RADF). And with a graphic display, intuitive menu system and dedicated function buttons it’s easy for everyone in the office to use. You even get a QWERTY keyboard to simplify data and email address entry. For added convenience, the MB471w offers the flexibility of a wireless interface allowing your multifunction printer to be placed anywhere in the office.
To help control costs, the MB471w come with duplex (2-sided) printing/copying standard, so you can save paper and energy. And, for ongoing savings, their 2-piece consumable configuration lets you replace just a toner cartridge when you need to, instead of the toner cartridge and the image drum.
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: The printer drum went out after 5 months of normal use and it costs around $165 plus to replace. Oki said their warranty covers the printer but not the drum. I do not plan on doing business with this company anytime soon.

Nice Printer - Not Perfect
Pros: Prints very quick and crisp on both sides
Cons: This printer is not easy to configure. The web gui is overwhelming. Wireless and Wifi are not simple to configure. Lack of Linux and Unix drivers/support. OKI tools are relativity useless, unless you are inputting hundreds of phone/email addresses into the device.
Other Thoughts: So yeah, its hard to set up, overkill for a home network, loud, smells, lacks good documentation and Linux support, and takes a significant amount of time to warmup.

Excellent Printer / FAX / Scanner
Pros: OKI appears to use the same excellent automatic document feeder and control panel for a large number of their multi-function printers and they have worked out all the bugs in the process. It works amazingly well, even with slightly wrinkled source pages. The printer output is also excellent, as you might expect for 1200 dpi. Despite the high resolution it is also very fast, as is the scanner section. I am impressed. Setup was surprisingly easy on our wired network. The machine sniffed out our gateway, and DNS IP values perfectly, requiring only that the permanent IP address for the printer itself be entered. Actually, it did assign itself an address from our DHCP server, but we wanted a predictable, static value. It even came with the clock set correctly. The alphabetic keyboard is great for assigning the FAX identity and for entering URL's of any PC's on the network that you want the machine to recognize. At this price point, I am totally amazed. The 10,000 copy toner cartridge we purchased for use after the one that came installed in the machine is even reasonably priced. We will definitely be buying more OKI printers in the future.
Cons: If you are not computer savvy, the wealth of options that can be set may be a bit overwhelming. There are two manuals to cover all the features, but although they are exhaustive, some separate step by step instructions and some suggestions about when various options are useful would be helpful. Considering what this machine can do, that is not much of a complaint.
Other Thoughts: Even my wife, who is almost a Luddite, is pleased with this machine.
