Konica Minolta magicolor 1690MF

 

The Konica Minolta magicolor 1690MF resets the entry-level price for color laser all-in-ones to a new low.

Low initial cost. Prints, scans, and faxes over network. Standalone fax and copier.

Relatively high cost per page. Difficult setup.

Konica Minolta - 1690MF

 

Colour laser printers are far more affordable than they used to be and are now a valid solution for home users and small businesses as a speedy alternative to the inkjet. Konica Minolta has an impressive ...

Our issues with the Konica Minolta 1690MF, such as the relatively poor quality display and fiddly fine-tuning, are offset by impressive performance and the flexibility on offer from the headline scanning, copying and printing capabilities. Though it's...

Intially great

 

This worked fantastically until the initial toner cartridges ran out about 8 months after purchase. Since then this printer has been nothing but a pain. Finding working toner cartridges that are decently priced has been near impossible, software needs...

Lots of features for the price

Hard to read LED screen, Replacement toner a pain

Decent Home Office Printer

 

Overall I'm very satisfied with the machine. It does what I need it to without fuss.

Very affordable color laser printer. I purchased mine during an excellent discount period though ; Flatbed scanner + Auto Document Feeder (ADF) ; Faxing features ; Pages per toner cartridge. I don't need to print *too* often, but the advantage a toner...

Somewhat noisy. Printer develops a bit of a "hum" after being on for a few minutes. This is after it's finished heating up, so it's not that period. Not a big issues for me personally since I don't need it on throughout the day, so I only turn it on...
