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.
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.
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.
Summary: You wont go wrong with this unit, its well built, easy to setup for network and has great output.
Pros: Incredible product, I bought somewhere else for more $$$. But worth every penny. The output on this machine is as near photo quality (on high quality paper) as you will find anywhere. Easy to setup via the built in pagescope webpage from your computer. I use mine to scan to email as a PDF and I a...
Cons: Plan to order a set of toners for this unit as it only comes with starter toners....All types of devices in this SOHO category are this way, so dont think for a second that its Konica Minolta is the only company who does this. A little slow to warm up to get first print out, but knowing what the ...
Summary: When you first start it up there may be a long initialization. I did not see this specifically referenced in the documentation but it seemed like it had a boot error or something for quite a while and then when I came back later on it was up and running.
Pros: As advertised it makes beautiful two sided color prints from your computer or its built-in copy, fax, or scanner. It's very quick and quiet when not in use. Excellent power save features. I prefer to print at home than at work. For the price I do not beleive there is a better machine on the marke...
Cons: The toner cartridges that come with the printer are "starter" cartridges and are only rated for about 3000 pages. Expect the starter cartridges to not last as long as the toner you will eventually buy.
Excerpt: пользуемся 3 года. учитывая потребность в большом объеме печати и копирования, аппарату просто цены нет. повозились с функциями где-то месяц, потом - все предельно понятно. делает все сам, главное правильно задачу поставить.
Pros: всё в одном и это всё работает!!! и качественно
Cons: по началу была проблема с расходниками, даже оригиналы только на заказ, не говоря уже о заправке - ее в принципе нет в городе для таких устройств. потом привыкли вовремя заказывать, да и самим заправить картридж оказалось пятиминутное дело.
Excerpt: Брал для дома, чтобы решить навсегда все проблемы с офиссной техникой.
Pros: Хорошее качество печати.
Cons: О заявленных 24 стр в минуту и речи нет. Максимум 5 - 6. По фото, я имею ввиду. А они меряют по машинописному тексту, с выделенным цветом текстом. Очень неудобный интерфейс. Я так и неразобрался, как сканировать отпечатки сразу в Эл. почту. Может у него нет такой возможности, только у С20? Обидно...
