Oki C5750

The C5750 is part of Oki's refreshed A4 digital LED colour page printer line-up and is aimed at businesses with an occasional need for colour printing but who usually print in mono. Able to handle paper of up to 203gsm and print banners of up to 1.2m long, the C5750 comes with free utilities such as Template Manager 2006 to help businesses create a range of professional-looking documents in-house and reduce their dependence on expensive outsourcing. Businesses can also keep an eye on costs by using the included software to monitor and track resources used in the office. Print Control keeps a record of colour page usage, while PrintSuperVision allows the management of consumables usage via remote monitoring of networked printers. With a mono speed of 32 pages per minute (ppm) and 26ppm colour, Oki claims the C5750 is an efficient printer and has a high toner and paper capacity, which means less user intervention and lower running costs.
