Good Price & Performance

 

I purchased this to replace an aging HP LaserJet 2100. It prints three times faster and has increased memory. Print quality is excellent. It is a little noisy, but I am very satisfied and would recommend it.

Konica Minolta bizhub 20 - multifunction ( fax / copier / printer / scanner

 

The machine is pretty durable and doesn't get many calls for service, print quality is also good. Management interface is a little quirky and being logged in through the browser prevents any action on the touchscreen.

Konica Minolta bizhub 20 - multifunction ( fax / copier / printer / scanner

 

Built strong, parts move easily so I can get inside and see what's going on. Excellent network connection. Only problems we would get were user issues.

Konica Minolta bizhub 20 - multifunction ( fax / copier / printer / scanner

 

We have been happy with our Konicas. We have them in all three office locations. Occasionally, I have had some trouble installing the drivers on the servers and sharing. However, overall it is a very good printer/copier.
