The Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650EN colour laser printer is a great buy for the amount of productivity that it squeezes into its small frame. Perfect for small office or home office printing, the 1650EN provides an affordable alternative to the high-priced inkjet competition. Easily networked and small enough to fit anywhere, the Konica Minolta 1650EN toner cartridges boast a higher page yield and the 1650EN maintains higher print speeds than other colour lasers in its class. Overall, the 1650EN easily beats its competition in both quality and price making it a must-have for any small office.
Konica Minolta really did a good job in making the 1650EN compact. All trays and attachments fold up into an easily portable 39.6 cm x 38 cm x 27.5 cm cube. It really is phenomenal that such powerful colour laser technology can fit into such a small package, but the 1060EN does it with style. The included paper tray holds 200 sheets and can accomodate multiple types of paper media including envelopes, card stock, postcards and many others. The paper output tray holds 100 pages and easily doubles similar colour laser printers in its class. Multiple optional accessories are available including a 500 sheet lower feeder unit and a duplexer for two-sided printing. The Konica Minolta 1650EN toner cartridges are available on Cartridge Save and the high-yield replacement cartridges, the A0V30CH (Magenta), A0V301H (Black), A0V30HH (Cyan), and the A0V306H (Yellow) yield up to 2,500 pages per cartridge with the standard 5% page coverage. The included networking card makes integrating the 1650EN with your office easily.
With a low cost and high quality, the Konica Minolta 1650EN has many major benefits. The 20 page per minute speed of monochrome prints puts it in the running with even higher end models. The 1650EN carries a very large monthly duty cycle of 35,000 prints and sports a stunning resolution of 9,600 x 600 dpi which is good enough for pictures. Compatible with both Mac and PC computers, the 1650EN can handle any project or print job with a wide variety of print media. Konica Minolta 1650EN toner is available in separate colours, meaning you only need to replace what you need instead of replacing all the colours.
Like many other budget colour laser printers in its class, the print speed in colour is an issue churning out only 5 pages per minute and takes 45 seconds to warm up. If you are used to a colour inkjet printer, this will seem insufferably slow. As you're waiting, just imagine how much money is being saved. While multiple accessories are available including duplexing and a larger paper tray, these amenities and the speed might be the deciding factor for stepping up to a higher end model.
