  • 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.

Try getting replacement Cartridges

Gift Card, 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.

  • 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.

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.

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

MPRUETT, 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.

Works ok, good value for the money

  • 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
