Great example of Jekyll & Hyde in a printer. Unit works fine til you replace the toner, then becomes awful.
First off the lack of WINDOWS 7 drivers is a major issue at present. When using generic drivers there are no tools for cleaning, color correction, etc. Also the including software is not compatible with Windows 7 so you must look elsewhere to find editing / printing software.
My unit arrived with a serious power issue that causes a house wide brown out or a tripped circuit breaker every time the unit powers up, or wakes from sleep mode. It then runs fine once it powers up. But because of this I am forced to turn off my computer before I turn on the printer every time I want to print since the brown out will cause my computer to crash.
So if you still have the patience to get this far the printer now works and prints very well for about 250 pages on the introductory cartridges including with the printer. However after toner is replaced the once beautiful colors become ugly and dull, as well as blurry. Making a once beautiful print job look like it was colored with crayons on wet paper.
As for my printer once I can afford it I plan to replace it. Please take my advice and look on for a better printer.

This is a great value for the money and the print quality is fantastic. I was also impressed by the speed. It used to cost about $500 for a decent color laserjet, so to get one for $150 or less is great. It is similar in size and quality to ones that we use at my work (I work in a law office). I did have some big problems initially, so I have to subtract a star for that. The setup was fairly easy- you basically remove all the packaging and connect the usb and power cord. The driver install was OK, but I was disappointed that I did not get any "driver install successful message" or any prompt for a test page. I went to print a photo and got a flashing orange "error" light. I had to run a 2nd program which they include that told me that status of the printer was "memory full". I kept getting a "memory full" error no matter how small the file (even a 500 kb photo). I turned the printer off and on, checked all the cables, rebooted the PC. Nothing worked. So I ended up having to go to the Konica Minolta website to download a new driver. That didn t fix the problem. So then I had to download two kinds of new firmware and that finally resolved the issue. It killed about 2 hours of my time troubleshooting this. I have Windows Vista 64-bit, so it s possible there were compatibility issues and perhaps other people will not have this problem. But I would encourage everyone to go to the Konica Minolta website and download the latest driver and firmware BEFORE using this product.

I actually love my printer. BUT- when I upgraded to windows 7 - No was driver available. Not till June. So, although my business has invested over $1000 in toner over the years, plus cost of the printer- they feel no need to support me. It is unrealistic to ask a person to stop all printing at their business for 6 months. Are they trying to force me to throw out my printer and toner and buy a new one?
I am losing time and money, because I chose their product.
I ve been very loyal to them, but they have no loyalty to me.
