The Okidata C9300 printer is a colored and black-and-white printer which uses laser technology. Within it are applications that enable you to achieve accurate color reproductions of printing activities. Additionally, expansion of certain features ensures that productivity requirements are met promptly. Available connectivity options simplify attachment to a computer or even a network with an optional server card.
Within its enclosure is a 450 MHz PowerPC processor. Such makes it possible for the machine to churn out 37 black-and-white pages a minute. That's 30 pages a minute for colored tasks. The first page takes only 10-11.5 seconds to be out, depending on the media size. A printing resolution of up to 1200 dpi x 600 dpi (dots per inch) ensures razor-sharp text and well-detailed images each time.
Upon purchase, there's a 128-MB RAM that comes with the machine. But it may be upgraded to a maximum of 1-GB RAM. This is possible as there are DIMM slots available for expansion. With such, you can have sufficient storage for large file sizes, without slowing down the performance of the printer. There are numerous memory sizes which can be installed, including 64-MB, 128-MB, 256-MB and 512-MB RAM.
There's a total of 650-sheet input media capacity thanks to the media feeders available. There's a 550-sheet capacity universal tray and a 100-sheet capacity multipurpose tray. But you can increase the handling capacity to as much as 2850 media sheets by installing additional trays (sold separately). An optional duplex unit may also be installed, for double-sided printing minus the unnecessary user interaction.
An assortment of media kinds and dimensions can be handled by the c9300. Compatible types are ordinary paper, card stocks, transparencies, labels, envelopes and others designed for laser printer applications. Compatible dimensions are just as extensive, including standard, folio, letter, legal, executive, tabloid extra, banner and custom. Up to a max of 12.9" x 47.2" media size can be handled by the machine.
Hooking it up to a computer is simple as there are a couple of interfaces around. They are bi-directional IEEE-1284 and USB ports. For network use, simply purchase and install an OkiLAN 10/100 Base-T 6200e+ internal print server card. This printer is compatible to work with various operating systems. The cartridges and toner drum are separate units so they can be individually replaced, thus allowing you to keep operation costs down.
Some useful software come pre-installed with the machine for enhancing certain printing tasks. For instance, the MonacoEZmatch utility makes sure that you end up with printouts matching exactly the colors you see on your computer monitor. Then there's the Job Accounting utility which enables you to track printing activities per department or computer, like ink consumption, media usage, etc.
