C300 and C500 Series set new standards of performance and value


Egham, Surrey, UK, May 2010: The original and best just got better – OKI Printing Solutions ‘raises the bar’ with new A4 Colour Desktop Printers for SMB market. C300 and C500 Series set new standards of performance and value – delivering fast, affordable in-house print quality - attractive contemporary design


From the company that revolutionised the printer market back in 2002 by bringing desktop colour printing within affordable reach of small businesses for the first time, OKI Printing Solutions is set to reinforce its market leadership of this important and demanding sector with the launch of the C300 and C500 Series printers. “OKI created a whole new market with the earlier C3000 and C5000 Series printers,” says Elia Giovanni, European product marketing manager, “reflecting our long-established understanding of the challenges facing SMB businesses.

“Building on this unrivalled experience, the new A4 desktop printers have once again raised the bar, by responding to the particular needs of this market for high-quality performance, reliability and maintenance costs. And all of this is provided within a contemporary low profile, ergonomic design.”

More performance, more value

These new colour printers are based on OKI’s single-pass digital LED technology and advanced print engine architecture. They offer powerful performance, with print speeds up to 26ppm (colour) and 30ppm (mono), faster time to first colour page (up to 9 seconds for the C300 Series and up to 8 seconds for the C500 Series) and duplex printing as standard on all models. “The new printers are ideally-designed for those individuals or small teams looking for fast print output on mono and colour laser documents with a professional finish, but who are currently using costly, inflexible print shops or are restricted to mono printing in-house due to budget constraints or perceptions of cost,” says Giovanni.

“At the same time, they provide the perfect answer for small businesses who appreciate the value of colour and are looking to upgrade from their first generation colour laser device which no longer meets their business needs.”

Enhanced reliability and environmental performance

Especially for smaller businesses, the lack of a secondary device places an increased emphasis on reliability and here again the new C300 and C500 Series printers are fully up to the task, with a number of features designed to ensure robust performance:

OKI has a 20–year heritage and unrivalled expertise in digital LED technology, with fewer moving parts and less wear ensuring maximum uptime.

  • A separate single image drum unit and print cartridges are easy to replace, delivering better drum life.
  • OKI are so confident in their products that they provide a unique three-year warranty on the C300 and C500 Series models, giving SMBs increased confidence and peace of mind.

The C300 and C500 Series also offer major benefits to those SMBs looking to improve their environmental performance. The intelligent ECO mode functionality automatically speeds up small jobs and reduces power consumption. The C530dn also offers unparalleled low power consumption of just 1.1W when in Deep Sleep mode.

“The C300 and C500 Series offer ultra-reliable printing with minimum user intervention, enabling SMBs to focus on their core business,” confirms Giovanni. “By bringing more colour printing in-house they can significantly reduce their overall printing costs, at the same time creating professional-quality documents which make a strong visual impact.”
