The Konica-Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 is a digital color laser press printer designed for high-volume output. It can output an impressive 80 pages per minute, but it also includes a large amount of customization through optional upgrades. Its 1200 dpi output resolution is enhanced to a 3600 dpi equivalent for excellent quality. Prices for Konica-Minolta C8000 printer toner supplies are a bit high, but yields are high as well, keeping the cost per page reasonable.
The C8000 is built for high-volume printing in a production environment, and it shows in its bulky frame. Even in its basic configuration, it measures 71.3x37.5x52 inches, consuming a massive amount of space. It also weighs a hefty 992 pounds, including the bizhub PRESS C8000 toner supplies and all consumables. It can be configured with a separate controller that is essentially a mini-computer, and also includes a Gigabit ethernet connection.
It might be surprising for some buyers that the paper capacity starts out at only 1,500 sheets, divided between three 500-sheet trays. It can be expanded to a massive total capacity of 10,760 sheets, of course, and the larger paper feeders even include a built-in dehumidifier to keep pages from sticking during storage.
It is likely no surprise that such an expensive machine would also have fairly expensive toners, but Konica-Minolta C8000 toner cartridges do have large yields to make replacement less frequent. Each color bizhub PRESS C8000 toner cartridge has an estimated yield of 60,000 pages, while the black supply has a yield of 91,000 pages. These yields ensure that the cost per page of Konica-Minolta C8000 toner remains affordable.
Not many buyers will have the budget or the available space to accommodate the Konica-Minolta C8000, but not many will have the need for such high-volume operations. Those who do, however, will find its customization, fast speeds, and inexpensive supplies to be essential to their workload.
