Good size for home office

Adorama
10 July 2013
  • Excerpt: In home use, low volume. The size is very good for an in home office. The print quality is good. Obviously, the toner cartridges are expensive , but that was expected. For a home office that has low volume, it's much better than an inkjet since the toner doesn't dry up.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use

Try getting replacement Cartridges

Gift Card "t j", Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: It's a good printer out of the box. Prints nicely with good colors, However, try to get real replacement cartridges for it. I guess Konica Minolta is not making them anymore because it's hard to find real ones. The aftermarket/refurbished ones are rated so low I wouldn't risk it.

Nice Price, Bad Deal

To God be the Glory, Adorama
17 April 2012
  • Excerpt: All in all we had a time with this printer. We had to call the warrenty right away and get a new one. As we could not return it to Adorama without paying as much as we paid for the item to do it. It was shipped broke. It took a week or so before we could even use it, however, it has proven a great machine for the price and we are glad for that.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Low toner consumption, Reliable, Sharp tones & colors
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Unreliable

The good and the bad

John F. Finch, Amazon
5 October 2011
  • Summary: Great price. I have bought two for under $100. They come with what is called starter cartdriges that won't last very long. The OEM replacement cartdriges of high quality will cost close to $400. Therefore you would be better of just buying a new printer rather than buying cartdriges, unless you went to cartdriges that were less than OEM in quality.

Great until it ran out of toner

E. A Lerner, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: There is very little toner in the machine. When it ran out it was difficult (and expensive) to replace. The second time I tried to replace toner, the cartridge would not come out. After a bit of wiggling the machine got jammed - so much that it had to be thrown out.

Good printing, but a few screwy problems

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: I recently got a Magicolor 1600W, and set it up. Screwy problem #1: The instructions are essentially hieroglyphics. There are no words, just pictograms that aren't always as clear as one might prefer. Eventually I got it unpacked and installed, and got the drivers installed. Once installed, the print quality is great, and it prints pretty fast. Not as fast as the big lasers at work, but a lot faster than any inkjet I've ever owned.

Works ok, good value for the money

redwing068, J&R
22 June 2010
  • Excerpt: Everything seems to work fine except when printing a photo from Windows Picture and Fax Viewer. It sends the printer into an error mode and won't print. I have had to print from Paint but have not tried any other programs. I think I have the latest driver. Firmware upgrade maybe?
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Sharp tones & colors
  • Cons: Slow Print Time

Printer Label state's - MANUFACTURED 2010 , checked with Konica Minolta & indeed this is a 2+ yr old Printer. It is (as stated on box, but not on Amazon Product Information, by Seller - Not compatible with Windows 7, therefore updated driver's required to have it working. Seller should have better information on product description.

Pas trop mal sauf les cartouches

fracaz, Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Bonne qualité d'impression, rapide. Par contre il semblerait que les cartouches de toner fournies ne durent pas longtemps ( environ 250 impressions au lieu de 1500 prévues ). Donc il va falloir payer le prix fort pour remettre du toner ( 200 euros minimum sur Ebay mais pour 2500 impressions environ ). Autre problème vu récemment : sur certains fichiers très lourds, l'impression ne démarre pas ou bien démarre très lentement.
