OKI Data B700 series – Monochrome Laser Printers for demanding workgroups

By Databazaar Blog

OKI Data B700

The OKI Data B700 series of monochrome laser printers include network ready printers with optional/standard duplexing. These printers feature print speeds of 42 ppm (B710n/dn), 47 ppm (B720n/dn) and 52 ppm (B730n/dn), standard 700-sheet paper capacity that can be enhanced to up to 1,800 sheets and 128 MB RAM. You can enhance the standard 128 MB RAM to up to 640 MB to improve the processing capacity for large print jobs.

Paper consumption can be reduced using the duplexing feature. Duplexing is optional in the B710n, B720n and B730n models and available as a standard feature in the B710dn, B720dn and B730dn models. Standard interfaces include IEEE Bi-directional parallel, RS-232C Serial, High-speed USB 2.0 and RJ45 Ethernet print server; the 1 GB Ethernet print server is optional. OKI has recently introduced the Wi-Fi option for the B700 series.

The optional 40 GB hard disk and 512 MB Compact Flash Kit not only allow file storage, but also enable useful features like Proof & Print, Secure Print and Delayed Print.

Your organization’s security concerns are adequately addressed by the standard security features that are built into the B700 series. In addition to security protocols like 802.1x Authentication, SNMP v3 and IP Security, OKI has also implemented storage device security. A 6-digit PIN is required for accessing jobs stored on the hard disk or flash memory. The Auto Delete and Secure Erase features delete jobs stored on the hard disk or flash memory.

The B700 series include energy and cost saving features like Toner Save Mode, Duplex Printing, long lasting toner cartridges, and low power consumption in regular operation – especially in the Standby mode.

By Databazaar Blog

Samsung_ML-2165W

Samsung’s ML-2165W wireless monochrome laser printer is compact, quick and cost efficient. It’s suitable for everyday, offering no-frills printing at home as well as in the office. At print speeds of 21 ppm (Letter) and resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi the output is sharp and professional.

The first printout comes up within 8.5 seconds of powering on the printer, so you don’t have to wait around for your prints.

The standard 150-sheet input paper capacity is sufficient to handle the printing volumes of typical home offices and small businesses, school projects and assignments. The toner cartridge is good for up to 1,500 pages of sharp black text and graphics.

With the One-Touch WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button, you can easily set up, connect and share this printer without running cables. The one-touch wireless setup configures itself automatically to your wireless network. It also has the Hi-Speed USB connectivity option in case you need it. The LED displays toner/status.

Ricoh Aficio MP W5100en and MP W7140en – Wide Format MFPs for High-Volume and High-Productivity in AEC environments

By Databazaar Blog

Ricoh Aficio MP W5100en-MP W7140en

The Ricoh Aficio MP W5100en and MP W7140en wide format MFPs have been designed to handle the needs of the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) community. Capturing, storing and sharing large documents such as schematics and building plans—it’s all managed in a smooth and easy workflow.

The 8.5” color panel allows you to preview thumbnails of your documents before printing as well as enlarge your files. This enables you to fix problems with page setting and margins thereby reducing paper and toner wastage. The clam-shell design and front loading toner and paper makes for easy replacement of consumables and clearing up paper jams.

The Copy function includes features such as rotation, magnification/reduction, margin adjustment, image overlays and storing documents on the document server. High productivity is assured with the D-size Print/Copy speeds of 14 ppm (W7140en) and 10 ppm (W5100en), and Scan speeds of 1.75 ips–13 ips combined with the Scan-To options.

The versatile color Scan function enables you to easily scan wide format documents, construction drawings, on-site notes and markups and easily distribute them using a wide range of Scan-to options. Scanned documents can be stored on the 320 GB HDD and accessed via the control panel. You can also save your documents onto a USB drive or SD card. Additionally scanned documents can be previewed fully or sectionally as well as edited. The Scan-To options include Email, Folder, Network TWAIN, NCP, FTP, SMB, Document Server and USB/SD.

The WebImageMonitor enables remote management. With this you can remotely view the documents stored on the MFP’s hard disk, check job details, cancel jobs as well as manage security features to protect your documents. Built-in security features like Lock Print and Hold Print will delete the print files stored on the hard disk on completion of the print job. The Stored Print option retains print files on the hard disk even after completion of the print job.

The Locked Print feature will keep your document pending till you physically walk to the printer and input your password. This way you can ensure that your confidential documents don’t get picked up by other users. You can use the Hold Print feature to temporarily hold print jobs in the printer and print them later from your PC or the printer’s control panel.

The standard Java VM card that comes along with the MFPs allows for integration of productivity boosting and feature enhancing applications from Ricoh as well as third party vendors.

Summary

The Ricoh Aficio MP W5100en and MP W7140en MFPs Wide Format MFPs have been designed for the architecture, engineering and construction community.

Toshiba_eSTUDIO

The Toshiba eSTUDIO 556/656/756/856 MFPs, with monthly duty cycles of 460k/515k/540k/600k pages, have been designed to handle the workloads of large business workgroups. They deliver secure B&W Print, Copy, Fax and Color Scan functionality along with e-Filing and document finishing options.

With print/copy speeds ranging between 55 to 85 ppm, scan speeds of 77 spm (Color) and 80 spm (B&W), these MFPs can not only handle heavy duty but they are also very fast. The standard paper cassettes can handle sheets ranging from Statement-R to Ledger size while the bypass tray can handle Statement-R to 11” x 17” sheets. The optional LCF (Large Capacity Feeder) can handle only Letter size paper. The standard input paper capacity can be enhanced to up to 7,500 sheets with the optional 4,000-sheet LCF. All the paper input channels can handle stock up to 110 lbs. The high-volume input paper capacity and high speeds are complemented by the 73,900-page toner yield to ensure high productivity.

In addition to TIFF, PDF, JPEG and XPS, the Scan function can handle MS-Word, MS-Excel and searchable PDF formats with the advanced scanning option. The 9” full color touch screen panel is intuitive and easy to use. You can walk right up to the printer and use the conveniently located front USB port to print from or scan to your USB drive. Connectivity features include standard Ethernet as well as wireless.

Using the e-Filing function that is integrated into the MFP, you can securely store and print documents on demand. The e-Filing functionality can be operated either via the touch screen control panel or from the client PC. It consists of 1 public box and up to 200 private user boxes that can handle 100 folders/box, 400 documents/folder and 1000 pages/document.

Toshiba has incorporated security features like Self Encrypting Drive technology, Automatic Drive Invalidation, HDD Overwrite (which meets Department of Defense’s standards), data encryption and support for LDAP, SMTP and Windows Server Domain authentication.

These MFPs include Toshiba’s e-BRIDGE™ technology that enables seamless integration with third-party solutions. Not only fast and capable of heavy duty and high performance, they are also eco-friendly. They are RoHS compliant, are part of Toshiba’s free toner recycling program and in the Super Sleep Mode, they only consume 1 watt of power.
