Wear ear plugs

Chad the Tool Guy, Amazon
9 January 2015
  • 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.

Even wasted more money buying the official ones

Sgreg, Amazon
9 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.

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

  • 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.

Excellent home office MF Printer

S C M, Amazon
12 May 2014
  • 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.

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.

Thank God I broke the beast during the extended warranty!

slo flight, Amazon
14 April 2014
  • 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'.

4 yrs later, I wish I bought a Brother

VINCENT S. KLUTH, Amazon
13 March 2014
  • 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.
