Review: Konica Minolta magicolor 1650EN


The compact Konica Minolta magicolor 1650EN, with its strong color and black text printing quality, can be ideal for low-capacity printing in a home or small business setting. Home users who may never burn through thousands of pages may well find the...

With its compact, opaque plastic design, the 1650EN is one of the smallest color lasers we’ve reviewed. It’s also comparatively lighter than other leading color laser printers, but at 33 pounds it’s by no means portable

Consumer review by:

A compact, easy to use color laser printer.


I've owned this brand since 1993 and it has given great service.

The 1650en fits in small spaces and prints fast enough for home and small business use. The duplex option is worth the extra price too, and only makes the printer about two inches higher and deeper

Toner can be expensive unless you refill or buy remanufactured cartridges

Can't print envelopes



Can not print on envelopes well ; The envelopes come out wrinkled and curved. This made it very hard to feed through our postage machine. When I spoke to tech support they said there was nothing they could do and that they didn't support printing on...

My daughter uses this printer for her small business, and after trying just about every printer out there, this one is by far the best. It prints bright, clear pictures, and she has had several customers ask her how she gets her pictures to look so...

Great little printer


The printer does not come with a duplex-er but an add on unit is available alone with an additional paper tray.

This is a great little printer. Quality of the printing is great. I use is everyday for both Business and personal printing as it is cheaper per page then any ink jet out there

A little slow when printing color, nut not bad

Magicolor 1650EN


Great laser printer. Cannot beat it for price and quality. I use it at home for daily printing, but also for mailers to about 250 people per month, and the results are just great. Their website is not as user friendly as it should. We had to download...
