Compact and cheap

  • Summary: I bought this printer because I do not print often and I was sick of my inkjet drying up. I tried to print pictures with this printer, but gave up trying to color match my monitor to the output. I would not recommend this for images, but good for those of us who print intermittently. I'm going on almost 2 years with the original cartridges.

This is an exceptional printer.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace my old Magicolor 2300w. There were some issues setting it up. Apparently, the toner carousel was bumped around enough in shipping that it could not rotate during calibration and failed initialization. I needed to remove the imaging cartridge and (against vendor warnings in the manual) carefully rotate the carousel from the inside, avoiding the toner rollers during the process.

Not Great

April Kellywright, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I can print from Photoshop CS without issue most of the time and the resulting image and color are quite nice - WHEN it works. Otherwise, it was problems from the get-go. First, the driver install flaked out and no amount of workarounds made it install fully. It's slow, I knew this going in from other reviews, but it's painfully bad. It is also quite loud, especially on start up; it literally makes loud clanking noises.

Not like our old Konica

Vicki Neiman, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: We ordered this to replace a Konica that we had used and wore it out--it lasted for many years. So we ordered this one thinking we'd be getting the same quality...not happening. We're very disappointed that it works at random and has great difficulties being used in our home network. I can rarely get it to print from my computer and have to send the docs to my husband's computer which is directly connected to the printer. When it does work, it is good--not great.

Really disappointed

Sheryl McDaniel "educator", Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I searched and compared and pondered over the decision to purchase the magicolor 1650EN and at first I was elated. It had all the features I wanted in a compact size and, especially important to me printing out greeting cards for my business, was rated as the budget machine with the best graphics output. The print quality was impressive but I could not get the thing to run reliably and print on the 80 pound stock I was using.

Most regretted computer purchase *ever*

ww2steel, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: (Have owned this product for about 2 years. Used to be a laser printer tech.) It prints okay in B&W on letter paper. Get outside of that, you're likely to have trouble. Very noisy (you almost have to yell over it). No internal tray (folds out of front, feels cheap). Tiny tray (legal paper just hangs out). VERY SLOW (compounds with noisy, if you want to print a large color document with photos, you are going to hear this thing going like a vacuum for the next 30 mins).

  • Summary: The Konica-Minolta Magicolor laser printer has the sharpest and finest colors and is definitely the best. I am completely satisfied with its quality.

Defective but resolved and working great

Gary Varnell, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I am updating this review because I contacted Konica Minolta and they replaced the fuser unit no questions asked. The fact that konica minolta stood behind their product makes me much happier regarding this purchase. Factory defects happen, getting them resolved can be impossible, but not if you buy konica minolta. I have had konica minolta magicolor 2430dl for 5 years and it has been a great printer. The 1650EN however is the worst printer I have ever owned.

Not even three months old and not working properly

Gayle Varnell, Amazon
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer in June and am noticing that the ink is smearing. I took the roller bar ( I think that is what it is) out and see that there is what appears to be cellophane in there causing the pages to smear in the middle. Tried to get it out with tweezers, but it really looks like it is part of the roller so afraid to do anything more. Now I tried to send it back but it is past the deadline according to Amazon. Surely it is still under some kind of warranty.
