BUILD AND DESIGN
The MC360 has an unusual shape because of an oversized output tray, a feature I actually prefer because I hate it when my prints end up on the floor.  Its dimensions are approximately 20 x 18 x 21 inches; fairly compact for an office printer.  The casing is done in shades of gray with a small OKI Printing Solutions logo in red on the front of the MC360.

Working top down, we’ll start at the 50-sheets ADF.  With adjustable paper clasps, users can copy, scan, or fax large documents of all sizes, up to an 8.5-inch width.

The flatbed scanner is located below the 50-sheet ADF for obvious reasons and offers a scan resolution of 600 dpi in both color and black.  The MC360 does feature a variety of scan-to options including: e-mail, USB flash drive, PC, and Network PC.

The control panel for the MC360 is fairly simple; it consists of a small (about 2.5 inches wide) backlit display, a directional key pad, stop and start buttons, and a numerical key pad.

To the left of the control panel, the MC360 has a USB port for scanning and saving directly to a USB flash drive.

Beneath the large output tray is a small button that allows access to the inside of the MC360 and the four toner cartridges inside.  In order to open this fully, users will need to flip open the top half of the machine. The front side of the MC360 also flips open to allow users access to the paper path.

On the front of the MC360, there is a one-sheet multipurpose tray for printing.  The multipurpose tray allows for banner printing up to 8.5 x 47 inches.

The 250-sheet main tray is located on the bottom of the MC360 and is compatible with media up to 8.5 x 14 inches.  The main tray can handle paper weight up to 32 lbs.

You’ll find the connections on the back of the printer.  The MC360 can be set up via a network (10/100 Base-T Ethernet) or high speed USB v2.0.  Since the MC360 also offers fax capability, you’ll find the fax port here as well.
