Okidata C7500n Review
Okidata's C7500n is a network-ready LED printer offering full color document printing at industry standard speeds, making the model attractive for the small office needing color but wanting a smaller model still capable of meeting industrial office needs.
The printer measures 16.9" by 16.9" by 24.4" and weighs 104.7 lbs, making it small enough in size to fit on a desk but likely too heavy to do so safely alongside other equipment. It will likely require its own desk or table or could be placed on a credenza built for printers to ensure safe storage and easy access.
The C7500N prints pages at a maximum speed of 24 pages per minute in black and white and up to 20 pages per minute in color, which is about standard across most laser printing models.
The printer produces documents in both color and black and white at a maximum resolution of 1200 by 1200 dpi. It has a curved media path and supports printing to a maximum media size of 8.5" by 47.2". Standard supported media sizes include Letter A, Legal, Executive, A4, A5, B5, and A6, and supported envelope sizes are International DL, Com-10, International C5, International B5, and Monarch. It supports printing to envelopes, transparencies, labels, plain paper, banners, and card stock. The printer has a total media capacity of 630 sheets split between two autoloading media feeders at 100 sheets and 530 sheets each.
A plug-in module to add a print server to the printer is available. It connects only via a wired connection, either through Ethernet or Fast Ethernet (essentially requiring Cat-5 or better cable regardless if your intention is to network the printer). If not, the printer includes an IEEE-1284 port, a USB port, and an RJ-45 10/100base-T/TX ethernet port.
The printer includes one internal expansion bay for connectivity and two internal expansion bays for memory. The printer has a standard capacity of 128 MB of RAM, which can be expanded to 1 GB if desired.
The printer supports PostScript standard and also includes emulation for PCL 5C, PostScript 3, and EPSON FX printer languages if needed for specific applications. The printer includes 136 PostScript fonts and 80 PCL fonts.
The printer is powered by a PowerPC 750 with a clock speed of 450 MHz, the same processor used in many Power Mac G3s in 1999 and 2000. The printer also includes 4 MB of flash memory to speed up jobs.
Though 20 pages per minute is still in many ways a standard across the industry, many newer printers are available with much faster printing speeds in both black and color, making possible outputs as great as 50-60 pages per minute if desired or necessary. Environments with heavier paper throughputs may want to seriously consider a newer model over this one for this reason.
The printer is listed as having a maximum media capacity of 1690 sheets, though what optional trays are needed to achieve this is not thoroughly documented and given that this printer has been out of manufacture for some time it may be difficult to acquire these items.
Duplex printing is only available with an optional accessory, which will add costs and possibly be difficult to come by.
The printer is not listed in its original documentation as being compatible with Mac OS X or newer versions of Windows (Vista and 7), though newer drivers can be found online in order to ensure compatibility. The printer does, however, list support for many versions of the Linux kernel and almost every older version of Windows, as well as Mac OS 8.6 and newer, making the printer a potentially good choice if you have several older systems on your network for various reasons.
