Oki C650: 'world's smallest high performance A4 colour printer'


Printer vendor Oki says its new C650 printer is "is smaller than any colour LED and laser printer with listed print speeds of more than 25ppm."

Designed for situations that require a workgroup printer that fits into a small space, the C650 uses Oki's LED technology to 35 pages per minute.

One space-saving feature is that access is only required to the front of the printer, and just 2cm clearance is needed around the sides.

Media sizes from B8 up to sheets that are 1.32m long are accommodated, with weights from 60gsm to 256gsm.

Paper capacity is 250 sheets in the main tray plus 100 sheets in the multi-purpose tray, with optional second, third and fourth trays holding 530 sheets each. Duplex printing is supported.

USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are standard, with Wi-Fi (802.11n) as an option.

Like other Oki printers, the 1200dpi C650 uses separate toner cartridges (nominally 6,000 pages from the colour cartridges and 7000 for black) and a long-life (50,000 page) drum. Note that the starter cartridges are food for around 3,000 pages.

The company says it makes extensive use of metal rather than plastic parts for durability.

The recommended average duty cycle is 8,000 pages a month, with a maximum of 100,000.

"Space is an important consideration for so many businesses when it comes to choosing the right printer," says Oki Data Australia managing director Tony Grima.

"Typically, buying a compact printer means having to compromise on performance, productivity, quality or cost-efficiency. The C650 turns this on its head, providing exceptional print quality, superior speed and reliability while delivering true ROI.

"This small yet powerful and robust printer will finally tick all the boxes for so many businesses including pharmacies and retail environments where space is a premium."

Just how small a space is needed for the C650? 490x435x654mm. The printer itself measures 290x435x430mm.

The $1066 Oki C650 comes with a three-year warranty.
