OKI CX3535/CX4545 MFP Series – viable solution for a multifunctional business environment

By Databazaar Blog

OKI CX3535_CX4545 MFP Series

A departure from the traditional MFPs, OKI DATA introduces the new CX3535/CX4545 MFP series that are designed to cater to the various print/scan/copy needs of a working environment. This series also has the option of sending high-speed fax. Additionally, they are ENERGY STAR compliant. The print and copy speed and output timings are very fast: CX4545 offers 45 copies per minute while the CX3535 offers 35 copies per minute. They not only provide a quick output but also one that is high in quality.

With duplex print and copy capability, these MFPs can handle heavier paper stock and banner paper up to 47 inches in length. There are a variety of data input options to choose from and the large LCD display and QWERTY keyboard allow easy entry of web addresses or e-mail access. Compatible with a variety of operating systems—Windows, Mac, Linux and UNIX—these MFPs can also store various print/scan/copy templates in the 80 GB hard disk drive accompanying them. A host of other business applications such as Google Docs can also be accessed through optional connectors.

What's more, one can save the time spent in outsourcing the processed documents to copy shops with the optional kit available that includes options for stapling, arranging the documents etc. With the facility of saving data on the hard disk drive, it is but natural for users to be worried about data security. The AES Encryption helps in preventing any outsider from accessing the data stored inside the hard disk since it is erased by the optional Data Overwrite Enabler.

Summary

The OKI DATA CX3535/CX4545 MFP Series includes multifunction devices with productivity-enhancing features. The OKI open-platform software simplifies adding external applications.

Dell C1660w Color Printer – affordable LED color printing, wirelessly

By Databazaar Blog

Dell_C1660w

The economically priced Dell C1660w Color Printer is built with LED technology. This compact printer can be easily connected on your wireless network. It also supports high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity so you can connect it to your computer using the USB cable that’s provided in the package. You can print from Android mobile devices to this printer; support for iOS is expected to be available in January 2013.

The 150-sheet input capacity and 100-sheet output tray are sufficient for personal printing, homework assignments and even for the printing requirements of small businesses. The drum and fuser unit have been designed to last the life time of the printer thereby ensuring low maintenance. You just need to replace the toner cartridges and stock up on paper. The toner cartridges that ship with the printer have a 500 page capacity (Black as well as C/M/Y). The standard replacement toner cartridges have yields of 1,250 pages (Black) and 1,000 pages (C/M/Y).

Print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi and you can get pretty decent print speeds of around 12 ppm mono and up to 10 ppm color when you print on letter/A4 paper. The printer’s standby and power saver modes keep energy consumption down when you aren’t printing. While you don’t get duplex printing, a port for a USB drive or an auto document feeder, the C1660w offers reliable color printing at a very affordable cost.

Summary

The Dell C1660w Color Printer is ideal for personal use, in homes and small businesses.

Canon_imageCLASS_D1370

Canon’s imageCLASS D1370, D1350 and D1320 monochrome Multifunction Copiers (MFCs) offer speed, high-volume paper handling capacity and increased productivity for mid-volume office environments. Add to this the duplexing feature for print, copy, scan and fax and you also get great savings on paper consumption.

The standard paper input consists of a 500-sheet cassette tray, a 50-sheet multipurpose tray and a 50-sheet Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF). You can enhance the paper capacity by using the optional 500-sheet cassette. The DADF not only reduces your paper consumption, it also simplifies the task of copying/faxing/scanning a set of two sided documents. It’s as simple as loading the documents in the DADF and then pressing a button. With print/copy speeds of 35 ppm (single-sided) and 17 ppm (double-sided) you don’t have to wait around for your output.

The scanner is compatible with TWAIN and WIA and you have a choice of output file formats that include High-Compression PDF, Searchable PDF, PDF, JPEG, TIFF, BMP and PNG. You can scan direct to e-mail, SMB, PC, USB or network. The conveniently located USB port allows you to directly print from or scan to your USB drive.

The fax function has a 512-sheet memory capacity and includes features like speed dialing, group dialing, auto redial, auto fax reduction and more. You can use PC Fax for sending faxes and the fax forwarding feature to forward to fax, e-mail or SMB. The lower end D1320 and D1350 models don’t include scan to E-mail and scan to SMB. The D1320 doesn’t include Fax.

Canon imageRUNNER LBP5280 and LBP3480 Desktop Laser Beam Printers – robust printers for SMBs and Enterprise Workgroups

By Databazaar Blog

Canon_imageRUNNER_LBP5280_LBP3480

The imageRUNNER LBP5280 and LBP3480 are Canon’s latest additions to their imageRUNNER line of printers. These desktop models have been designed to meet the printing needs of small and medium sized businesses and enterprise workgroups. The LBP5280 is a color printer while the LBP3480 prints only B&W.

Both models incorporate the RAPID Fusing System which provides exceptional image quality and needs almost zero warm-up time, besides consuming less heat and energy. Fast processing of complex print jobs is boosted by the scalable 768 MB RAM. The LBP5280 is capable of print speeds of up to 21 ppm (Letter) in both B&W and Color. The LBP3480 is faster with speeds of up to 35 ppm (Letter). Standard Automatic Trayless Duplexing is part and parcel of both models, so you can print on both sides of the paper and reduce paper consumption.

Though the standard print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi, you can get crisp sharp text and image output that is equivalent to 2400 x 600 dpi. The 5-line scrolling LCD and user-friendly control panel enables quick and easy navigation and lets you view toner and paper levels as well as status at a glance.

You can connect USB memory devices and USB cards to the two USB ports that are located at the front and back of the printer to facilitate USB-direct printing. With this feature you can directly print PDF, JPEG, TIFF and XPS file formats without using a PC. The Secure Print, Mail Box Print and Email Print features are available with the use of the optional SD card.

The front loading design for paper, toner, fuser and drum makes these printers compact and easy to maintain. You can integrate these printers on the network with imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFP systems and set up workflows to route print jobs and inbound faxes to your LBP printers thereby reducing the number of fax lines.

The LBP5280 and LBP3480 printers can be easily managed using Canon’s scalable imageWARE EMC utility that facilitates centralized management of printers and multifunction devices from Canon as well as other vendors.
