Summary: To be fair, the scanner works really well and it produces a copy or two in the time it takes me to prepare lunch. But, when I press 'print this thing goes through about 30 seconds of internal undulations so loud, so prolonged that it wakes up my dog.
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.
Problems with the Minolta Magicolor 1690MF multifunction s/w

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'.
Konica Minolta 1690mf Scanner Drivers for iOS 10.x do not function with Apple Maverick OS

Summary: Love my 1690mf, worked great with duplexer and 500 sheet paper tray on a PC...HATE it now that i have switched to an iMac with Maverick OS - 1690mf does not support the scanner - won't work with iOS 10.2 Contacted both Apple and Konica-Monilta still not able to scan!
Summary: I've had the 1690MF for over 4 years now. I've suffered with excess noise (strange squeaks, loud fan), inconsistent print quality, blotches on color or BW prints -- and worse yet -- scanner drivers that don't work for MacOS. The user interface is clunky at best.
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.
