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. I have called Konika Minolta for cleaning assistance and questions with Toner Refills. I have learned the proper way to clean the machine.
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.
Summary: The first one had some problems, mostly due to my own incompetent attempts to repair it, but it lasted three years and produced excellent color laser prints and copies at modest cost. I decided to buy another one but to read the instructions this time before trying to take it apart. The main drawback of the product is the poor user interface, where you have to learn what the very abbreviated instructions mean on the very minimal display.
Summary: I am very happy with my Konica Minolta Magicolor 1690MF Multifunction Color Laser Printer ! It is EVERYTHING it said it was supposed to be. When I got it, it had a paper jam that I didn't figure out, called Customer Service and they guessed the problem right away and walked me through the procedure. Then two days later I couldn't get it to print at all. The Customer Service Rep was wonderful to work with.
Excerpt: It was fairly simple to set up and the print quality is excellent. I was planning to give it 4 out of 5 stars because it is a tad noisy (humming sound) when in idle, but I checked the settings and found that I could set it to go into idle after only 30 seconds, as opposed to the system default of 15 minutes. To change this setting, us the "Select" button to select Utility > Machine Setting > Energy Save Mode.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Sharp tones & colors
