20 lb paper and nothing else

Bug Magnet "BugMagnet", Amazon
5 March 2008
  • 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. Oh yeah, the cancel button does nothing at all as far as I can tell.

Magicolor 2400W - Disaster

Theodore A. Oshetsky, Amazon
26 June 2007
  • 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. Strange, I bought new and they replaced it with a used unit.

Good prints but too many problems

H. Melnick, Amazon
20 December 2006
  • 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. A full set of cartridges cost 50% more than the machine. Print quality is good, and it's fast when printing black-only. But it's noisy -- lots of loud clanking, like someone's inside with a hammer, and machinery whirring.

Nice and Good Value at First Then it Doesn't Work

M. Mejia, Amazon
2 December 2006
  • 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. I tried different weight paper, filling up the tray to the top, half-way, still will not pick up. I haven't even used up and any of the original 4 toner cartridges!!! By an HP if you can.

highly overrated printer

Janice Morris, Amazon
2 November 2006
  • 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. I personally would have appreciated Mac drivers...I now have to convert documents to print on my husband's PC. (We do not share well...

Nice print but....

G. Mckinney, Amazon
3 September 2006
  • 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 the desired page. A solid black page results, of course you have no warning, that there will be a problem so its trial and error.

nice color quality but GOUGES you on the toner!

Eduarrdo Nietzsche, Amazon
29 May 2006
  • 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 ink in them! You have to manually override the sensor every time, and it's hard to get it to NOT use color inks during b&w printing, LOL.

Not for the Typical Home User

Boilermate, Amazon
25 May 2005
  • 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. (Spec found on pg 87 of the PDF manual) It is like having a small space heater on all the time. The lights flicker while the element stays hot. So I let it go into standby, which solved the flickering.
