Summary: We got good use out of this printer for a few years, and the print quality was quite good. Our only complaint at the time was that Konica-Minolta's printer status software installed on our PC was flaky and was constantly popping up and giving useless notifications about communications errors, etc.
Summary: Konica Minolta does not suppport there printers drivers when new operating systems come out. Why. It would take a tech guy a few hours or less to create a new driver. I have a perfectly low usage Magicolor 2300w and Windows 7 64 bits and Konica will not support Windows 7.
Summary: I was responsible for trouble shooting one of these for about five years. I wanted to forget the trouble shooting and just shoot it. As long as the cartridges were replaced before they were empty things were mostly ok, the software was annoying and lacked most advanced settings I am used to, but if...
Summary: Finaly found a print server that works with the Minolta Magicolour 2300W. Although not on the published compatability list I took a chance and bought the EDIMAX GDI Print Server Model PS-1216U. This print server is available for aprox $30.00 US.. + shipping...
Summary: I'm very dissatisfied with this color laser printer. I bought it new for over $900 with a three year warrenty. It did work well for two years with only occasional jams. The colors where great and the speed was impressive.
Summary: Great printer. Quirky in the way the priner software is requried to change toner cartridges. Only drawbacks are its weight (solid construction) and power-up - will trigger some UPSes and kill set-top boxes.
Summary: It is bit late to write a review of this crappy printer. Like other reviewers i have had the "send the print three times" problem, i have also had to change toner and the drum units twice in its lifetime. Its total prints so far in its entire 2.5 years we have owned this is 12,000 copies.
Here's how to reset the toner cartridges to fully use them up.

Summary: The 2300 Konica Minolta printer has performed well for me. My only real issue with it is the silly cutoff page print counter which seems to require changing cartridges. But the simple way around this is to reset the silver flag on the cartridge end.
Summary: My experience has been absolutely identical to 'Upset User'. I too bought the printer 1 and ½ years ago and it worked perfectly until a couple of months ago when it began to require 3 print requests before anything would appear...and even then after a considerable wait!
Summary: Alright, I use this printer at our school. Don't print much, just flyers and envelopes mostly. We have owned it for 2 years. Luckily the printer went bad before the warranty ran out and the company replaced the whole printer.
