The MC873dn from OKI Data Americas Earns Editor’s Choice Award from Better Buys

Mount Laurel, NJ (June 12, 2015) – OKI Data Americas announces that its new MC873dn earned the Better Buys Editor’s Choice Awardfor Summer 2015 in the color multifunction printer category. The MC873dnis an excellent choice for small workgroups and was recognized by Better Buys for several valuable attributes, including eligibility for a new, industry-leading five year warranty2  plan called COREFIDO plus scalable configurations and robust scanning features. The MC873dn also received accolades for its low cost-per-page. 

Better Buys praised COREFIDO – the free 5-year extended warranty and recycling program2 from OKI Data for which the MC873dn is eligible – highlighting its cost benefits for the end-user in addition to the recycling initiative. Another commended feature of the MC873dn was the new redesigned seven inch operator touch panel featuring better ergonomics, a job macro feature and diagnostic help.

Another factor contributing to Better Buys’ Editor’s Choice designation for the MC873dn is the device’s scalable configurations – offering the features of a copier but at a fraction of the price.

The MC873dn offers strong scanning features including various scan-to functions and a few new scanning features – the addition of PDF/A format, ABBYY FineReader 12 Sprint and SENDYS Explorer LITE – providing optional connectors to the cloud.

Melissa Pardo Bunte, Editor of Better Buys noted, “Better Buys calculated the cost-per-page as 1.5 cents in black and 9.8 cents in color. This is impressive for this level of the market.”
