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.
Summary: I have been using this printer for a few months now, and the print quality is very nice. My only complaint with the machine is that if you try to put more than 4 or 5 pieces of paper in the document feeder at once, the first couple of pages feed crooked.
Summary: I managed to install the printer fine. But not without some trouble because of the poor documentation. The quick installation guides that came with the product was not very useful, because it has a few pictures and very little words to explain.
Excerpt: Even though this is an office model, we bought it for our home because we wanted the three functions and because we have had several printers in the past that did not last long. My son and I will also be printing, etc. for our jobs.
Pros: Durable Construction, Good print quality, Reliable
Cons: Hard to scan or copy book, Large Footprint, Not wireless
Summary: First off, I have to say that the color printing on this is fantastic for the cost. If you plan on using it primarily as a printer and need only occasional copy/fax/scanning, this is a good place to look. If you intend to use the feeder often, skip this and look elsewhere.
Summary: I was excited to receive my magicolor 1690MF and had no problem setting it up. I followed the instructions and it went flawlessly. My previous printer was a Dell 1320c which I loved but after 5 years of hard use, it died.
Cheap color laser prints + expensive toner = you get what you pay for

Summary: I've had this printer for several months and would overall rate it as mediocre, but the base machine now sells for ~$250 online so you get what you pay for. Compared to prior Brother lasers, the KM is very noisy, slow, counter-intuitive to set up, crippled in a Mac OS 10.6 environment, and has...
Summary: Overall I'm pleased with this product. However be aware of a few things. When it is not in sleep mode it is pretty noisy. The software could be a lot better. Things take 5 button pushes when they should really have been doable in 2 or 3.
Summary: Bin im großen und ganzen noch zufrieden mit dem Farbdrucker, aber er hat m.E. auch einige nicht akzeptable Mankos: - Scans werden m.E. grottenschlecht - warum nur so geringe Auflösung? - Drucke auf Folie werden schlecht, die Farben sind wenig transparent, wirken dunkel und alles ist kaum erkennbar.
Summary: Es gibt keine Scanner treiber für OS X 10.7 Lion. Im Werbungsmaterial steht es aber anders. Das sorgt für Ärger. Generel ein guter Drucker- mit AirPort funktioniert mit Mac und Windows Geräten (unter 10.6).
