The product is as expected.

Charles Bronner, Amazon
30 May 2014
  • 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.

Constant Paper Jams

Joel G., Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: We had a Lexmark x543 for many years and it worked great until it started acting funny after a recent move. Unfortunately for us, toner started to leak on the edges of all printed pages. Instead of trying to repair the old printer, we decided to buy the Konica Minolta since it was cheap and we wanted a 5-in-1 to replace the Lexmark. Big mistake. My wife is currently going back to school and is constantly printing things out for class.

Problems with the Minolta Magicolor 1690MF multifunction s/w

Roger King, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • 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. Actually, the Minolta FAX software is not compatible with my iMac. Maybe the s/w needs to be updated.

Cheap, good imaging

Adorama
18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The machine is useless for (my) business since, when remoting in to my work server through Citrix it makes the machine crash. Why, you ask? Because Citrix is not supported by Konica Minolta. So if I want to print something from work I need to email it to myself, and print from home.<br />Nor can you print from an iPhone or iPad since there are no apps available for doing so.
  • Pros: Sharp Detail

Counter intuitive Multi Malfunction Printer

JJ, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • 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. It seemed like the best bang for the buck, given that its a multifunction color laser printer and on average it was a 4 star product at the time.

Prints well

Chinell Blount, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • 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. They can take over your computer and make installs, or to fix issues. It prints beautifully. The ink last for awhile. Its been one year, and I'm still on the same carriages.

Information on top front of printer

Wanda, Adorama
27 September 2013
  • Excerpt: For the most part, I am very pleased with my Konica Minolta. However, the little screen on the top front of the printer is hard to read because it is too dark. I have to strain to read it or use a flashlight. I would suggest that you put a little light on this screen. When I began to get a message on my monitor that I was using a non-Konica Minolta toner cartridge and that your warranty does not cover any troubles caused by a used toner cartridge or non-Konica Minolta...
  • Pros: Accurate Colors, Efficient, Sharp Detail, Slow Warmup Fast Print

Only for casual users says this IT Pro

David L. Scarpitti "Davi20110", Amazon
10 September 2013
  • 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... Printing: + The printer works fin if not a bit slow - The printer has more noise than most other printers, even in sleep mode. + The image printed is acceptable - The printer can not handle large print jobs. It very hot and then the page start jamming.
