OKI MC 573 Review: Business Partner for the Small Office

Easy reload

The design of the machine means all the stuff you need is in convenient reach.

Tray, ports, interface – no fumbling needed. Connect and go in minutes Don’t worry about downloading any software – it’s already all there. Just scan for device and print.

Simple interface

No confusing buttons, does things as said on the tin. Copy? There’s a button for that. Scan? There’s a button for that. Fax? You already know the answer.

No Rocket Science

The installation is easy and quick – it takes minutes, if that. There’s no need for any extra installation – connect you LAN and go. Your devices on the same connection will automatically detect it. The interface is easy enough to use – copy, scan, fax and print – you don’t need to figure out any rocket science to use this multifunction printer. It’s a small enough machine that can fit on any regular sized table.

No Jam, No Smudge

Print the AGM report, print an IKEA catalog – the printer will still be running smoothly. No worries. Sure, it’s not the fastest printer, but it does a decent job, printing a 130- page document taking less than 10 minutes. The colors are quite crisp, and does daily documents quite well. It’s not going to look like our magazine you’re holding, but it will look professional enough for a business report. There are also no issues about ink smudges found in many rollers.

Color clarity

Scanning and copying documents is quick, easy and clear. The operations are simple, no need to set 101 different settings just to copy or scan. It’s all immediately obvious on the MFP’s interface. The copy and scan quality is clear, with no fuzzy edges, all the details are clearly reflected on the copies or scans. With the copies, it’s nearly indistinguishable to which is the original. You’ll have to squint really hard.
