Summary: I need a color laser printed for a quite limited, but critical part of my business. This one is available at a decent price, gives very good results. It is however, balky and prone to errors and paper jams. It prints quickly, but is very slow to prepare to print. When I need to replace it, it will be with a different brand.

Summary: Pros: 1) Affordable. 2) Prints in full color. 3) Fair print quality. Cons: 1) Have to install printer drivers separately. 2) Sucks SO MUCH power each time I initially print that my UPS (battery backup) beeps! :-( 3) Prints WAY TOO SLOW, I am gracious with 3*s because I clearly read other review that told me this before ordering. But, when they said "slow" I had NO IDEA, REALLY, REALLY SLOW!
Summary: We bought this to replace our HP 1525 as a label printer mostly, so we were looking for something that could handle graphic-intensive files and deliver a good output. The actual printing is very nice, it handles minute details very well. The time it took to print is...I can't even believe it. It took 45 minutes to handle 24 files, 1 page per file. It was like having a dot matrix printer again! If you're looking for a high quality printer at a low cost, then this is it.
Excerpt: I had a Konica - Minolta printer that lasted 7+ years and finally died. This was a pelacement printer. Connecting to it as a network printer was hard and took over an hour. It also draws a lot of juice on start-up and would shut down my computer. I now have it on its own circuit..
Excerpt: The color is sharp on this Laser particularly on 28# paper. However, I replaced a nine year old Tektronix Phaser 750PS that was showing its age. I needed to put out 200 mailing this month and I find out that the 1650EN does not support standard Comm. #10 envelopes! It has a paper guide that forms around the envelope but will not print. It only supports DL and smaller CL ISO standards. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING??
