Good inkjet alternative
28 June 2013
Summary: I got this printer because I was tried of paying a fortune for inkjet cartridges only to have them dry out before they were completely used. Setup was easy and painless. I have the printer setup to sit on my network, all I had to do was let windows find the network printer and install the drivers. Unlike other printers there was no 100 MB download from the manufacturer involved.
Summary: I've only printed about 10 pages so far, but it's worked well. I'm using it with a MacPro w/OSX 10.8.2 and it seems to be quite compatible. I couldn't get it to work with an Ethernet connection, but the cables I tried were old. Perhaps I needed to wait longer for my computer to recognize it, but I was more interested in getting it working since I'd been without a printer for 2 weeks.
Summary: I finally made the switch to a laser printer and I have no regrets. This may not be suitable for printing high quality photos but it works great as a text and grapics printer which is why I bought it.
Summary: Nice printing. Squares up better than office depot printing services- always receive rotated printouts from them. Tried some thin envelopes, but it had a crushing effect on them - rollers creased each of them a bit; otherwise great document quality. Best deal i found was w/ Amazon along with the purchase of extra toner. Even checked toner against seller's own site.
Summary: This is not the first Konica Minolta Magicolor I have purchased and it is not the only brand of printer I have bought...it is simply the best printer I have come in contact with, both in my home office and in my industry of visual communications and major events assisting. Konica is always compatible with both Mac and PC, which is extremely helpful for people who work on both. Right out-of-the-box plug and print, perfect!
Great home office printer for the mixed operating system home.

Summary: We run several different operating systems in my house, and getting a printer which can support all of them is a challenge sometimes. This printer fit right in without any trouble. I had the printer unboxed, on the network, and printing from my Linux machine within half an hour, including time to deal with a broken software issue on the Linux machine.
Summary: I got this color laser printer to replace a Samsung CLP-315W which was junk (I reviewed it too). The 1650EN is connected via ethernet to a network of Macintosh computers. It has a nice small footprint. It is very quiet in sleep mode, mostly quiet between printing and sleep mode, and somewhat noisy when printing but don't chalk that up as a complaint. The print output is fantastic.
