Konica Minolta 2400W
James U., Newegg
13 October 2006
Summary: As usual Newegg service was EXCELLENT(5 eggs for them)
Pros: For home use this printer is must have.For the amount of printing I have done in the past month I would have been in my 5th set of cartridges but with the 2400W I hardly dented the toner supply.Simply said alot of bang for the buck. Excellent quality for both picture and text.
Summary: Good windows printer for those thinking of dumping inkjets.
Pros: I bought this printer over a year ago to replace inkjet printers. Driver installation went well and I have it shared. The issue with sharing is that the status application doesn't work if the printer is being shared. So, I just unshare it about once a month to check ink status.
Cons: Somewhat loud and long startup time from powersave mode. Currently, not linux friendly.
Summary: Cheap,Prints way better than I expected. I dont bother with photo paper.This thing makes plain paper look good,and I use the lowest quality setting.
Pros: I have this same printer, all I use it for is printing DVD covers It performs flawlessly. It is a bit noisy. My first laser printer so I cant realy compare it to others. Im never going back to ink jet for printing any kind of graphics again. Laser is the only way to go.The magicolor is a breeze t...
Cons: Only the network thingy. Im not bothered by it.
Summary: Between this (Konica 2400W) and other color laser printers I have used, this is the best one! The Dell 3000 is ok, but Konica 2400W has best color print quality. It is loud however. My starter toner has yeilded more than expected pages.
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.
Summary: I have had the 2400W for about a month now and really like it. The prints are so much better than an inkjet. I got mine to make brochures for my business and they are beautiful. Doing them myself with this printer saves me over 80% from the area printers and I get a free printer out of the deal!
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!
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.
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: 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).
