Konica Minolta magicolor 7450

 

Photo output close to true photo quality. Handles paper sizes up to 12.25 by 47.24 inches. Fast photo printing

Text quality a bit low for a laser, though good enough for most business needs

The Konica Minolta magicolor 7450 comes up a touch short on text quality, but prints darn good photos for a laser.

Magicolor 7450

 

Konica Minolta's Magicolor 7450 is a mid-range A3+ desktop laser printer, based on a copier engine. It's a fairly robust printer, with Konica Minolta claiming a duty cycle of 120,000 pages per month.

Excellent text and graphics reproduction for a laser printer in this class

It can be quite noisy, not as fast as expected, auto settings on paper trays are best ignored

This is a solidly built machine that looks capable of taking years of abuse, and is ideal for documents and content proofing. It’s not going to rival inkjet printers for photographs, but picture quality is better than many comparable laser printers and...

Magicolor 7450

 

Konica Minolta's latest laser printer may look like a 1970s Soviet housing project, but a few niggles aside, the quality of its output will satisfy many designers.

Excellent colour-fidelity and a wide colour gamut. Good all-round image quality with no banding.

Ugly, with a frustrating paper-feed system.

As you'd expect, the 7450 offers the usual range of extra trays and duplex options. Installation is easy, especially on a Mac where the 7450 supports Apple's Bonjour (neé Rendevous) automatic network location technology

Excellent printer. Never jams, never skips a beat. Plenty of configuration options too, which is great for a medical facility that has a lot of custom charts that need printing.

Little bit outdated MFD, but works great at a very low cost. No colour scanning though.

Nothing but problems, we have around 4 of these machines 2 of these have had nothing but constant paper jams and mainboard problems. 8 service calls in a month is a little to many for my Liking.

Konica Minolta 7450 II

 

We have 2 of these units nearing the end of a 3 year lease. Both units currently run about 16,000 pages per month. Over the past year one unit developed a significant jamming problem. The leasing company finally replaced the feed rollers fro the...
