Oki C332dn Drivers Download. The color LED printer Oki C332dn is designed for desktop use. In the test he turns out to be loud in the company. Otherwise there is little to complain about. The Oki is known for color printers that handle paper flexibly. The same applies to the C332dn: The color laser printer, which uses LED lines for exposure, can process paper in formats from A6 to banners with a length of 1.32 meters. Because of this, and thanks to a comprehensive tool package, it can also be used in the creative field, where it comes to color accuracy.
Oki C332dn Review
With the color LED printer Oki C332dn, the manufacturer has succeeded in producing a good output device at a very reasonable price. It delivers high-quality prints, handles printing materials flexibly, and consumes little energy when in hibernation. Although the page costs are not particularly favorable for color printing, the many possibilities for saving the same but partly compensate for the disadvantage. Since the operating noise is quite high when printing, you should not place the printer next to you on the desk.
Amenities - LAN on board, WiFi as an option
That the Oki C332dn is intended for creative use, also show the printer emulations PCL 6 and PS 3. They can be loaded simultaneously with the driver installation on the computer and use it. There are plenty of GB memory, which are additionally supported internally by a 3 GB eMMC flash memory. On the memory equipment can be changed in retrospect, however nothing more.
In contrast, the paper supply is expandable with an optional 530-sheet cassette. However, you only need the additional equipment if you are not satisfied with the 250-sheet cassette and the multi-purpose tray for another 100 sheets that the device comes with at the factory. To save paper, the Oki C332dn features an automatic duplex unit. Duplex printing is factory-set in the drivers. If you want to print on one side, you must deactivate the function intentionally. This also applies to the Toner Save mode, which is turned on in the default settings of the drivers. It offers four modes: low, medium, high and off. To do this, you can exclude text passages in documents by ticking the "Do not save 100% black toner" option - convenient.
Price trend to product More offers in price comparison
The interface of the Oki C332dn is limited to USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet. For office use, the LAN port is in most cases the crucial interface. If you want to wirelessly control the device via WLAN, you must purchase an optional adapter for a good 46 Euros (RRP). Whether over the wire or wireless, the Oki C332dn is also available for mobile devices. For this purpose, the color printer Apple Airprint, Google Cloud Print and can be controlled via the Oki App.
Loudness and consumption of the Oki C332dn
If you want to put the color LED printer Oki C332dn next to you on the desk, you have to deal with a fairly high operating noise. If he stands alternatively in the corridor or in a separate room, the working noise does not bother you. At the same time, the printer quickly goes into sleep mode, where power consumption drops to 0.6 watts in multiple stages - that's low. The status can also be initiated via the button on the device. However, the Oki C332dn can not be completely disconnected from the power supply via the switch. Actually off, the value in the test does not drop below 0.2 watts.
All consumables such as toner, imaging unit, conveyor belt or fuser unit are installed separately in the Oki C332dn. When calculating the page prices, they are included proportionately in the page price. On the basis of XL toners, 2.6 cents result for the black-and-white and 14.8 cents for the colored sheet. In the case of the monochrome side, the price is okay, the ink sheet is rather salted.
Speed - brisk worker
The Oki C332dn's print engine is designed for 30 black-and-white and 26 color pages per minute. This is fast for the device class. In the test, the color printer confirmed that he completed the tasks quickly, which is also due to the lush memory. Twenty pages of text are done in 51 seconds. Printed on both sides they last 1:30 minutes - again fast. Even in color mode, we do not wait too long for the finished pages to be in the output. Especially fast is the full-color PDF document with 33 seconds. For this, other - even far more expensive - printers take much longer.
Print quality - rich colors and sharp text
The Oki C332dn always puts the toner on the paper glossy. Colors are consistently full and slightly dark. You can compensate for this by changing the driver, because the PS emulation produces slightly brighter colors. The letter margins of texts are very sharp, even if you print very small letters. Colored surfaces are homogeneous, monochrome a shade coarser. However, that is criticism at a very high level. Thanks to the flexible handling of different media, it is also possible to print on high-order films, which is absolutely desirable in this case. On paper, you can often use the Toner Saver mode without significantly losing output quality.
