Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Review When we reviewed Oki's C7200N colour network printer in April it excelled in our tests, striking the ideal balance between print quality, speed and low running costs. But while the C7200N is aimed at small workgroups, the C9200 is Oki's high-end network printer, with a high price to match.

Oki C9200With 128MB of RAM as standard and A3 printing, the Oki is well equipped to cope with the most demanding office environments. Like other Oki network printers, it also uses an efficient printing method called single-pass technology, which generates greater print speeds than standard carousel-based printers.

At 600x600dpi (dots per inch), the Oki managed to output 21ppm (pages per minute) in monochrome and 17ppm in colour – impressive figures that barely drop when you bump up the resolution. Print quality was crisp and bright, but colour presentations were slightly faded in comparison with some of its rivals. The maximum resolution of 600x1200dpi also looks distinctly ordinary when you consider that the Xerox Phaser 750P offers true 1200dpi for half the price. But what you're paying for here is speed and efficiency. The hefty price tag is also offset by cheap running costs: one colour page costs 1.13p and a mono page costs 0.49p.

However, despite being aimed at a corporate network this model doesn't come with a network card as standard. To get one of these you have to opt for the C9200N or the DN, which also comes with a duplex unit.

At £4399, the C9200 is squarely aimed at the high-end business user. Print quality is impressive, if not outstanding, and some of the specifications are unremarkable. But this is a very fast printer able to cope with heavy workloads. ®
