Wow, this printer is great despite the stupid setup!

Summary: I have never seen such a unintuitive setup. I have purchased Brother printers for years--been very happy with them. But I needed an inexpensive multi-function color laser printer. Took a gamble with the 1690MF. The setup sucks, but wow, after that great. FAST COLOR. I have no idea why they say 5 pages a minute, it kicks off a full color page in seconds. I set at 600x600 to save toner and the print quality is fantastic.
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.
Summary: Before I bought this printer, I did my research. Sure, the low price was definitely a factor in my ultimate decision to purchase this printer. Some of the reviews were less than glowing, one citing fan noise, another pointing out how difficult the network setup turned out and the poor software interface that Konica had. NOT! A five year old could have installed this printer in less than an hour. It was the simplest, easiest setup EVER. Drivers disks in the box,.
Summary: After years of bringing cross-stitch patterns for my wife to the UPS store for them to color copy. we finally bought this color copier. Have had for 6 months and fabulous value. Scan images and send to your hard drive via USB. And being able to FAX. The only thing I would have liked in addition is optical scanning to a text document format. That is just software. Regardless we love this machine!
