Pros: Not very bright, but it's a party light, so you don't want something harsh that blinds people or causes glare. The closest comparison is to the bulbs that come with refrigerators, at least those that don't have led backlighting everywhere, but blue, red or green.
I have one inside my front door, as it's just bright enough to let you see what you're doing, but not be a spotlight letting everyone know you're there. I don't expect to change it for a few years, which is great, and it doesn't have that buzz most CFL bulbs have.
Cons: Only 3 colors? It is a bit pricey for a colored bulb, LED or not. $5 would be a more appropriate price, though assuming it lasts as long as it should, worth the $11 I paid.
Other Thoughts: The other two reviewers were clearly looking for something that wasn't mood lighting, which this clearly is. They should have just bought a white LED or CFL bulb. Not sure why they bought this, but that's their mistake.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OKIDATA B431dn Plain Paper Print Up to 40 ppm Mono LED Network Printer (91659903)
Pros: Quiet, Fast, easy setup, durable, duplexes, and very good consumables.
Cons: Ethernet isn't gigabit, stock RAM is a bit low, accessories from Oki are outrageously priced.
Prints with large areas of gray or black exhibit some banding, but it's not terrible, and doesn't detract from the overall print quality.
Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd B431dn, and this one I got for the amazing price of $154.98, basically half price. This one I setup for my mother, took maybe 5 minutes to get it un-boxed, plugged in and setup on the network.
I added N82E16820239355 which is a 256MB DIMM that is compatible with this printer, bringing the RAM to 320MB, enough to handle pretty much any document you have. At $15, it was a no brainer when the Okidata version of that DIMM is $280, nearly twice what I paid for the printer.
I've been using Okidata printers for nearly 30 years (I feel so OLD...) and have rarely been let down by them I do wish their 2nd paper trays and other accessories were not so wildly expensive though.
This review is from: Kingston 256MB DRAM Memory Module
Pros: Works fine in the Okidata B431dn printer, brought the RAM total up to 320MB. Inexpensive
Cons: I didn't find this sooner.
Other Thoughts: Based on the specs, I took a gamble and picked this up to see if it would work in an Okidata B431dn.
Best case I max the RAM on the printer for 1/18th the cost of the Okidata RAM module.
(Yeah, they want $279.99 for the module. Much more than I paid for the printers.)
Worst case it doesn't work and I put it on Craigslist or yaBe. (OK there was a small chance it would have fried the printer, but that was highly unlikely.)
Brought it home today and popped it in and it works perfectly.
Definitely helps with complex documents - PDFs' tiffs, etc. spool and print noticeably faster.
Since I have two B431dn's I'm buying a 2nd module right now for that one.
