20 lb paper and nothing else

Summary: Decent color. Noisy, slow, and will NOT accept anything heavier than 20 lb paper. If that's all you use then it is an ok printer. Great for letterhead printing (then send the letterhead through your B/W laser), but won't do your envelopes.
Summary: Having owned and operated a Konica-Minolta Magicolor 2400W for the last year and a half I am not surprised this item has been discontinued by the manufacturer. I purchased a brand new unit which promptly broke down in days of installation. Minolta did replace it with a REFURBISHED unit.
Summary: I bought it because it was cheap ($200); I thought it was less than the cost of the ink cartridge set but it needs a black cartridge after only a couple of thousand pages so, as another reviewer said, the cartridges must be "starter" cartridges.
Summary: I bought this printer new and was satisfied with the purchase (even though it made loud clanky noises when it printed) until just about within 14 months after purchase, it will not feed the paper through. It picks it up the sheet and just jams.
Summary: contrary to other reviews-I have printed brochures on heavy weight paper with success. HOWEVER, the drawbacks are numerous: it costs more to replace cartridges than the cost of the machine, I cannot, cannot, cannot get decent quality print on my art work.
Summary: I have owned this printer form 4 months now and can say the quality of the print is very nice, but the printer is a huge memory hog. If I have more than a couple applications open, firefox internet brower and an excel spreadsheet for example, the printer will not have enough memory to properly print...
Summary: I could've bought this printer for a hundred fifty after reebates at my local OD but steered clear after learning that it comes only with "starter" cartridges that are only 1/3 full (maybe 500-800 pages) and has an annoying sensor that tries to force you to change the toners even while there's still...
Summary: I owned this printer less than a month and sent it back. For: 1. Great price for a color laser printer. 2. Nice looking copies, especially photos. 3. Fast color photo printing. Against: 1. Power consumption. It uses 11 amps of my 15 amp circuit when on.
Excerpt: I bought one of these recently for home use and have been very pleased with it. The value for money is brilliant - the excellent quality of the colour prints and the speed at which they are delivered, are quite a surprise in this price range.
Pros: Value for money, excellent print quality, compact size
Cons: Can only be used with Windows - no Mac or Linux drivers
