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

Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650EN review

 

The Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650EN is an inexpensive colour laser printer that produces beautiful black text and vibrant colour images, and offers reasonably priced (albeit low-capacity) ink cartridge replacements.

The compact Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650EN can be ideal for low-capacity printing in a home or small business setting. Though replacing the consumables is cheap, you’ll do it often and will have to absorb a higher price per page. Businesses with...

Konica Minolta's 1650EN can't escape the threat of high running costs

 

Struggles to stand out from the crowd in performance terms, and the running costs are high

It can't match the Dell 1320cn for speed, however, thanks to its four-pass colour printing. Black and white printing was respectable, at 21ppm, but pages with colour printed at just 5ppm

Can't print envelopes

 

Inexpensive

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...

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...

Out of the box, test printed great. Loaded drivers for Vista 64 on one machine and XP on the other, both print fast and clear over network connection.
