Konica Minolta Magicolor 3730DN review

 

The Konica Minolta Magicolor 3730DN colour laser printer falls a little short in some areas. However, sheer value for money may yet redeem it.

The limitations to the Konica Minolta 3730DN's specifications prevent it from putting in a really strong showing overall. In all honesty, paying a little extra would get you superior results.

Konica Minolta 3730DN review

 

Konica Minolta's 3730DN is a low-cost laser printer that doesn't come with extortionate running costs

Value for money; quiet in use; text is sharp; balanced images; low-cost toner

Limited in paper-handling; limited memory; slow printing; slow duplex mode

The Konica Minolta 3730DN has an attractive price tag and, pleasingly, extortionate running costs don’t follow. However, its limited specification prevents this laser from putting in a strong showing overall. You could pay just a little extra for...

Great printer

Pay for something better

 

Cheap ; Prints Fast ; Easy to Install with CD

No Plug and Play on Windows 7 ; Mangles envelopes ; Won't stop printing full-duplex ; Won't stop trying to print from the wrong tray ; Makes a racket for 3-5 minutes each time you turn it on for "Configuring

Great Machine

 

This is a great machine, works really well, havnt had a problem with this at all, only flaw is the 4 toners you have to buy just a pain would have thought it would be 2 or 1 but still not bad for the price, colour pages for about 11 to 12 cents a page

Poor Printer Yield

 

Even on Economode, after 700 pages I was down to 35% on the black toner. Despite the fact that the stated yield on the included black toner was 2000 pages.
