Update 3/20/13
OCR optical character recognition is done using Omnipage16 by Nuance (see more below). It works very well but it has an annoying quirk. Omnipage16 will CRASH if the printer is not ready (set to Scan/Remote PC/Twain) before you tell it to scan a page. In this case, you MUST ctrl/alt/delete, start Task Manager, and close Omnipage16 from the Application tab. Then switch to the Processes tab and End the 2 Twain processes you will find on the list. Finally restart Omnipage16.

I purchased this from a major office supply company whose name starts with "S". I will update this review if my opinion changes.

My old all-in-one is an HP Officejet Pro 7580. It worked great for 16 months until the genuine HP ink began to leak. Replacing the ink did no good. It was costing a fortune to keep buying HP ink so I began using generics, but generics are NOT at all water resistant. The ink jets have slowly gotten clogged over time until the color does not work anymore and even B&W is iffy. I am feed up with ink jets! You cannot beat the per page cost of lasers, but what to buy?

Spec Comparison:
I compared the following similarly priced monochrome laser all-in-one printers: Brother MFC7860, Cannon imageCLASS MF4880, Cannon imageCLASS MF4890, Samsung SCX-4729FW, and Okidata MB451w. All scan in color. All have auto duplex print, but ONLY Okidata and the Canon 4890 have duplex (double sided) copy and scan. Okidata has a Duty Cycle (a measure of durability) of 50,000 pages per month while all the others are rated about 10,000 pages. The Okidata is not flimsy and weighs 44 lbs while the others weigh about 22-25 lbs.

The first reviewer did such a comprehensive review that there's little more for me to say. The print quality is excellent! I haven't tried to hook it up to the network yet. I'm using a usb to my desktop which does not have wifi.

To me, the setup was confusingly simple or should I say specious? I kept looking for a quick start booklet, but there was only a small print set of pictures. I finally found the dvd inside. It has the manual and quick start guide. Both of those are okay to follow. I had tried to install before reading thinking that the dvd would have detailed instructions but it did not. Everything is in the pdf's. There's a procedure to follow to connect the usb (not provided) and power cables. That has to be done before the drivers are installed. There's nothing on the dvd to tell you to install them. There are little "i" icons next to the items in a list starting with software. You have to click the icons before stuff is saved from the dvd to your PC. I stumbled around a little thinking, "There must be more to it than this?", but copying and printing from the pc worked okay. I'm not used to installations being so easy.I didn't contact Oki support at all.

This is like an office copy machine in size and it's really heavy. It has a big footprint snd don't even think about putting it on a shelf. I would say that it's built pretty solid even if it is plastic. Isn't everything? It's here; It's setup; It works. I bought for reliability and that's what I hope I get. I'm damned tired of buing ink. I really don't need color since we have other printers for that. I'm glad a friend convinced me that a laser is a lot cheaper than ink jets in the long run.

Easy to use, easy to connect. Not real pleased with the "picture" install guide vs. a real manual, but you get it all on a CD.

People, this is an excellent all in one machine. It's well built (and heavy!!!), and comes with a bunch of software.

So far, so good with the Oki Data MB451 MFP. Arrived quickly, in perfect condition. Great price as well. I considered other MFP/AIO units with similar features, but was going to cost at minimum another $60, shipping included. Took a chance on this one based on price of course, but also features, decent reviews, plus supposedly good customer service. Customer Service I would have to see for myself as I'm someone who is hard to impress in that department.

It has only been a few days since it has been set up to the point where I can give at least an initial review. But I have to say I'm very happy so far.

Setup was a BREEZE, despite what all the reviews seem to say. I may not have the most complicated set up environment nor have set up every possible function, but getting it connected wirelessly couldn't have been any easier. No, I'm not in IT nor have a CS degree. Perhaps other functions will give me trouble but for it's main job for the majority of people this is targeted to, it gets the thumbs up.

PRO TIP #1: I just used the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) PIN method, adding the MB451 to the router with the PIN the unit provided me and boom, set up is done. A test print was completed immediately after. This was a pleasant surprise. Installed a Mac driver, just in case, but not sure if I even really needed it.

With initial set up and printing already working, I decided to set up something more complex. I always wanted network scanning capability so I followed the manual instructions to set up that function. The manual instructions got me to the point of being able to scan something to a shared folder on my Macbook. Not bad, but wait, there's a problem. It doesn't let me view the file because of some permission issue.
