Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650EN Color Laser Printer
4 February 2015
Summary: Hate leaving a one star because I've had 6 other printers from this manufacturer over the years and all were great. This one worked for about an hour, then it died. Was making funny noises, as if the toner gears weres sticking.
Summary: the toner cartridges are so cheap that the little handle snapped off as I tried to change the yellow one. Handle then fell inside the unit, and "service required" displayed on the LCD screen. I'm going to cut my losses and sell this thing on Ebay, as-is. Cheap quality.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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).
