I love this printer

Summary: I purchased this printer because I needed to print 5000 flyers for my business for advertising and the cost to have them printed was ridiculous. I found this printer new at a very reasonable price, plus I purchased the larger toner refills for less than the printing would have cost me. There was still toner left to print other jobs when I was finished. It has been wonderful, and in color, great for photos, brochures, etc. Toners load easily.
Summary: Absolutely have loved this printer. Over time cartridges may leak leading to printing issues but a little vacuuming and new cartridges do the trick. Only considering upgrading to a newer model due to no upgrade drivers for an iMac.
Summary: Konica Minolta magicolor® 2400W Laser Printer - this model is good only on a PC. I also use a 2430DL which is good for the MAC as well. Works very well with Greeting Card Factory. It is very economical to use. Although a discontinued model, it is still most useful, moreso because of the low pricing.
Summary: I have no idea why it has mixed reviews but for the price this printer delivers strong results. It prints crisp colors relatively quietly and very quickly. Also, the link lasts VERY long compared to other printers in this category! I love it! Only issue is that is it a bit big, but if you have the space it is perfect!
Summary: My first post and I just felt that I had to write a positive review after seeing all the negatives. I got a refurbished one at a discounted rate (less than $150) a couple days ago. B/W text printing is amazing as usual for lasers; colour printing isn't bad at all (under 2400x600 dpi). Unless you look at it up close, you won't notice the pixels. I don't have the printer long enough to really comment on it's build quality...
Summary: I am very pleased with this printer. I've had it for about 6 months. The print quality is excellent; photos are very good. I have it under my desk, and do not find the noise particularly objectionable. Alas, it died after 2 years. Still a good deal for the money.
Summary: Bang for the buck you can't go wrong. Cost per copy is half the lexmark (13 cents) and less HP (9 cents). Based on normal toner costs it runs about 6 cents per copy on 5% coverage of 3 cartridges. Granted, photos will cost more but that's across the board. No laser will ever be "Photo Quality" because the "ink" is melted plastic dots. but unless you're looking under magnification, this does a damned fine job. The ONLY drawback I have with this unit is the paper feed.
Summary: This printer is great! The noise that many complain about is minimal and not all that annoying. It makes noises as it adjusts the cartridges. The printer is fast, easy to use and makes just super prints. I had no problem installing it, but did NOT use the CD that came along. I had earlier downloaded the drivers from the Konica/Minolta site and just ran the setup file that came with them.
A COLOR LASER PRINTER THAT WON'T BREAK YOUR BUDGET

Summary: I recently purchased the Konica Minolta Magicolor 2430DL Color Laser Printer and I LOVE IT! I run a small desktop publishing business from home and needed a reasonably priced color laser printer that would produce good quality products in a short period of time and this printer fits the bill. The text is awesome and graphics are awesome and the speed is just what the doctor ordered.
