Pass this one up!

Summary: While the low price for a color laser printer may draw you in, steer clear of this one! I have spent countless reams of paper thanks to this printer getting an error close to the end of the print and all data that should have been spooled was lost...so it's back to square one.
Summary: Printer is extremely noisy. Like other oldies, it needs to warm up for a while before printing. During the warm up process, the printer clicks, clicks, ticks, ticks, and makes lound noise that could wake up your whole family during the night.
I do not recommend it...unless you like punishment.

Summary: I purchased my Konica-Minolta 2400W laser printer new. I am sorry that I ever purchased this printer. I have wasted my valuable time as well as hundreds of dollars (for new Konica-Minolta toner cartridges) trying to get this printer to function properly.
After 40 different printer types, this is the worst

Summary: The Minolta printers are on my never buy again list. Poor drivers, even poorer tech support. The cartridges cannot be refilled, there is a chip that turns off the entire system if it believes the number of pages printed are enough. Example. I purchased anothe new black cartridge.

Summary: This line of printers has been discontinued. The ink and drum cartridges are difficult to replace, and the printer has problems knowing when they have been replaced. All this can be overcome using menu commands, that take a while to figure out.
Summary: I set the printer up in my home office two years ago and have used this printer extensively. I HATE IT. Yes, it prints out pages rapidly and has been a "workhorse," I suppose, but not a well-behaved one - and certainly not an inexpensive one.
Summary: I have had this printer a few years. I wanted it for printing many pages at a time, as well as printing photos. It prints fast, once it actually starts printing (it takes a long time and a lot of noise to start). The print cartridges are expensive and don't seem to last very long.
Summary: After casual use of this printer for about two years it frequently fails to load paper. I found on internet that other people have the same issue. Another problem, the driver for this printer has some issues.
Summary: Very good picture quality for a color laser unit but mechanically very cheap. First page printout is slow but speeds up for multiple copies. I bought 2 to use in my home office and both failed mechanically within 6 months. I would not consider Konica Minolta again due to the cheap quality.
