Even wasted more money buying the official ones
8 December 2014
Summary: Broke within 1 year when I bought third party toner cartridges. Even wasted more money buying the official ones...too late, damage was already done. Software was cumbersome to install, toner too few pages and too expensive for OEM's.
Summary: The new 1690 MF is cheaper to buy than buying new cartridges, fuser and imaging cartridge. The document feeder is almost worthless, since it jambs easily, and takes very few pages. The color printing is great.
Summary: I have owned 2 of these. The first one I screwed up while cleaning it with an Air Hose to blow the dust out of the inside of the unit The second one is going strong and is very dependable. It produces very high quality copies. Scans very well with appropriate prompts and is a very good FAX machine.

Summary: The print outs are very good. While the literature for the printer indicates that it is Mac compatibleI have been unable to get the FAX software installed (I'm running and iMac with OSX installed). I get a message that my iMac is not compatible with the Minolta s/w.
Thank God I broke the beast during the extended warranty!

Summary: The 2nd sheet of paper I fed from the paper tray on this animal jammed. I resorted to tricky hand feeding. The unlit display kept telling me it was out of paper unless I had the tray completely full of paper. I bought Hammermill 20 lb. The one they advertise as 'jam free'.
Summary: The printer works great....the issue is installing the software is so difficult. ..would not recognize it on my laptop or desktop with windows ....finally after 5 times of installing then removing and reinstalling it worked...until I had to reset my modem then it wouldn't work.
Summary: Lets just say I'm disappointed in myself. Anytime I make purchase on anything substantial or computer related I do a fair share of research before I make a purchase and this is probably the only product I've ever purchased where I failed. I purchased this printer almost 3 years ago.
Summary: This machine was one that I had never heard of, but the price was right for a laser color printer. I tried it, and had to call customer service for wireless printing and scanning help. The customer service is really great for this company.
Summary: As this deveice is mult-function I will rate each as I see it. I am not your regular user as I have been an IR Pro fr over 20 years and have been certified to repair printers and other IT devices. Here we go...
