broken after printing less than 50 times

Summary: Bought this printer due to its reasonable price point and reviews. Set up the printer OK but had an issue where postscript wasn't printing properly. Called company and walked through a setup that seemed to fix the problem. I print very very rarely (probably less than 100 sheets this past year!) but for some reason the toner is already almost gone and now the paper jams constantly. I can't even print anymore without the paper jamming now.
Summary: The Good: It still works. We use it only for color printing. The Bad: Its a toner HOG! we don't get even 1/2 of the stated life of the toner cartridges. The Ugly: The price of the toner. A set costs as much as the printer. We are looking for another printer soon. This printer is the most expensive maintenance issue in our office.
Summary: It's an ok printer, but nothing stellar. For the price it is good quality and the prints look great. The ink is pretty expensive and I am not super impressed with the admin software. The printer curls the paper up pretty well on a double sided print and card stock looks like a scroll when I get done with it. We had a solid ink printer and I think it was cheaper per print although I don't think the images looked as crisp.
Summary: I have had an old Konica Minolta 2300 laser printer that is 10 years old that finally wore out. I bought the 4750DN to replace it. It has met all my expectations. Time to print the first page is very reasonable. The duplexing operation works great - I have never had duplexing before and I think it is a great way to not waste paper. Print quality is high.
Summary: In 20 years of IT work, I have rarely come across a printer with more problems. And believe me, I've handled some whoppers. First, the toner supposedly lasts for several bajillion pages (creative exaggeration deliberate), however my users churned through toner so fast I wound up keeping at least 3 of each color on hand within the first two months. Big. Mistake. After 3 months, one of them began to chew paper at the fuser.
Summary: I simply cannot imagine a product that retails for $800 is this bad. I've really tried to like this printer, but my old $250 Epson Perfection inkjet could run circles around this Konica. Admittedly, I have high expectations for print quality and color, so after my first testing when the colors looked terrible, I told myself "it's not a high end printer.
Summary: This printer replaced the Brother Laser printer we had in our office; used as a network printer shared with 3 employees. From day one there were issues getting the printer to properly work using a wireless print server connected to our office router. All computers accessing this printer are PC's running Windows7 (64bit). Once we were all connected and printing was possible, there were issues with extreme latency trying to print any files that were > 1 Meg.
