As a personal color laser, the Konica Minolta Magicolor 1600w is an impressive beast. This is how PC Magazine.com depicted the laser printer in its June review, an apt narrative for a product worth the dollars consumers pay for. Magicolor 1600W beats its closest competitor by a mile being less expensive at $180 while printing at faster page per minute speeds. Apart from producing good quality monochrome and color prints, the 1600W is regarded for the low per page cost of outputs.
In a press statement, Printer Sales VP at Konica Minolta Business Solutions USA Richard Miller stated how the leading imaging company is honored to receive such an accolade and how said recognition translates to increased consumer confidence for Konica Minolta products.
The Best Upgrade Alternative. For consumers looking to replace their existing inkjet or laser printer, the Magicolor 1600W can be recommended as a potential upgrade unit. From the outside the magicolor 1600W is an aesthetic gem, sleek in design and carries a small footprint to easily make it a welcome addition even at small workspaces.
A Personal Workhorse Laser Printer Unit. When required to print at full speed, the Konica Minolta Magicolor 1600W delivers 20 pages per minute (PPM) for monochrome outputs and a conservative 5 PPM in color regardless of selected print resolution. The printer is packed with eco-friendly features as well as it operates with a very low decibel level, apart from being energy efficient. The unit can also be set to run on economy-printing mode which consequently reduces cost per page of printed documents, without sacrificing print quality.
Konica Minolta uses the exclusive SimitriR HD polymerized toner on the magicolor 1600W that saves up to 15% of energy required for laser printing. And for the skittish user, its ozone emission is 40% lower than most conventional printer toners. Replacement retail cartridges are available at $140 for cyan, magenta and yellow cartridge while the black cartridge is retailed at $90. Users looking for more affordable consumable options can refill used cartridges with compatible toner, once toner refill kits appropriate for its cartridges become available.
