Worked fine for a while.

Richard Enriquez, Amazon
5 June 2015
  • Summary: I ordered 3 of these machines, and for the most part they were fine for the first 3 years. That is when we started having problems. After trying to restart one of the machines after it froze and the power was turned off and back on, would not no longer power the unit.

Great machine except Mac driver update is slow

Stuart Leitch, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: This printer works great for me. 4 stars instead of 5 because the company is very slow releasing a driver for Mac OS 10.9. A tip: if you can't stop a print order the usual way with the reset button, turn the printer off and • unplug it for about half a minute. That clear the memory.

Good Printer

Kris R., Newegg
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I would buy it again.
  • Pros: This is a great MFP. I work in IT and have used numerous MFPs in business over the last 10 years. For my home/office/family this has been a great one. Even my four kids use it often for homework, scanning, copying, printing. I like the Mac, and PC drivers included. Wished there was a Linux driver...
  • Cons: As with most printers it comes with toner cartridges that only have a limited capacity. We are conservative with our printing and the black lasted about 6 months, and the color even lasted longer. The replacement ones can be found for a discount online.

Hardly the worst printer I've dealt with...

Dane Powell, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: The only problems I've had with this printer are ones that I (probably) caused by using refurbished / 3rd-party supplies. It worked great until I tried to save money by using remanufactured imaging units and 3rd-party toner, and then the print quality went down and it started throwing errors like...

Complete Piece of Garbage

Brandon S Gamm, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: If all you're doing is printing copies, this printer might not give you any trouble. But if you like getting up every 5 minutes to resume a job because some inscrutable error has to be cleared by pressing a random button then this printer might be for you.

Great MFP

Kris R., Newegg
11 September 2012
  • Summary: I just put it on my LAN and gave it a static IP. Popped the disk in the computer and installed the driver software, told it the IP of the printer and done. Scanner software was just as easy as the printer driver installation.
  • Pros: Great MFP. Good quality printing. Very simple installation. Runs great on MAC, WIN7, and WIN XP. Scans easily over the network from the flatbed or through the feeder. Nice laser color. Even on the economy setting the text from docs and pdfs looks great. Easily setup presets in the printer propert...
  • Cons: Only CON is that it about killed me hauling it down the stairs into my basement office...its about 120lbs.

Hard Worker

Alan O., Amazon
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Am adding to this review 2 years later: Still like the Konica machine - we buy the extra large capacity toner 3 or 4 cartridge packs, likewise with the imaging units (there are four of them) and have to swap out the toner reservoir occasionally.
