Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W

 

Along with being slightly larger than the CLP-315, at 200 sheets the 1600W offers a higher paper capacity. That's only a 50-sheet advantage, but it's enough to make a difference. A 150-sheet input is a little on the skimpy side; 200 sheets capacity...

Small footprint, suitable for desktop. High-quality text. Crisp, vibrant color graphics

Fairly slow for a laser. Relatively low paper capacity. Manual duplexing only

The Konica Minolta magicolor 1600W is a touch less expensive than its closest competition and a touch faster, and it offers higher-quality text.

Konica Minolta - Magicolor 1600W

 

There's an increasing choice of budget colour laser printers and Konica Minolta's offering in the sub-£150 market is the Magicolor 1600W. This is a small-footprint machine, decked out in black and white, which looks neat and ...

This is a very serviceable colour laser at a good price. While it uses a slower, carousel print mechanism, it still manages a reasonable colour speed and a good throughput for black. Running costs are a bit on the high side if you aim to print a lot of...

just doesn't work

 

Stick to HP and Brother.

When it works, the prints are decent

my first one didn't work out of the box. manufacturer sent me a second one. and the second one just stopped working as well ; tech support takes about 10 minutes to answer your call and will eat up about 1 to 1.5 hours of my day every time that i call...

mediocre product

 

Compared to the 2400W, this Magicolor is inferior. The lower resolution is not useful to me at all (I expected it to be 'passable' compared to 2400dpi). It cannot print borderless and I had to make my cards with tiny illustrations in the center. It...

Great price for mediocre printer

 

It's a color laser jet printer. Install was easy. Prints clear and properly when it doesn't hang up. That's the good.No wifi, no network hookup and the paper jams about every 6 print jobs.

Get What You Pay For

 

I've owned printers over the last 20 years and never had good and bad, but nothing this lousy until now. I didn't get many pages out of it before the "change cartridge" lights came on, first the black and not long after that the color lights came on,...

When the printer worked, it printed decent quality text, and average color output. Holds a lot of paper, printed heavy paper okay but not card stock ; Price, but that's not always a good thing in this case, as you get what you pay for

Where do I begin ; The included cartridges lasted a pathetically short time. Whey they say starter cartridges, they really mean it ; I understand the printers sell near or at a loss, while being subsidized by the outrageous price of the toner...

Excellent printer for the price

 

The printer arrived quickly and the installation was rather easy. Although there was a period of noise while starting up, it became quiet after a few shutdown, open-close the chambers, tapping the connectors, and restart. The print output quality is...

Consumer review by: coius (newegg.com)

Could be better. At least it works

 

The first one that came to me looked like it had been opened before. All the stuff was already removed which it said to remove. Also the carousel was jammed and broken, the toner already had prints on it and the cartridges were

Cheap. The second one works. Decent color

Slow to print the first page, the cartridges are somewhat difficult to install and manage. They don't snap in easily like they are supposed to. Took several minutes to figure out how to seat into the carousel right. could be a little bit easier to...
