The Konica-Minolta PageWorks 20 certainly isn't the fastest laser printer in its class, but its 20 pages per minute output speed is adequate for the smaller shared office, and its 1200 dpi resolution and small-particle Konica-Minolta 20 printer toner create very sharp images and text.
The parallel port of the 20 is unlikely to be useful for most modern machines, but the unit also includes an ethernet port, making it easy to share among office users, which is why the unit is sometimes referred to as the 20N. The design features a fairly compact footprint that should fit well in a small office, and the Long Edge Feed feature makes the most of its footprint without sacrificing paper handling, with a maximum paper size of Super B (13x19 inches).
The PageWorks 20 has a fairly modest processor, at 100 MHz, but still manages solid performance. It can handle automatic duplexing for two-sided output, while still maintaining a decent rate of around 12 pages per minute. It is also capable of N-up printing, which can save paper, and a toner saving mode can help to conserve the usage of PageWorks 20 toner with only a slight reduction in output quality.
Replacement toners are a little pricey, but mainly due to their large capacities. The standard Konica-Minolta 20 toner cartridge can provide a yield of up to 10,000 pages, so it won't need to be replaced frequently, even in busy environments. This lowers the cost per page for PageWorks 20 toner cartridges, and makes them a cost-effective solution for high-volume printing.
The PageWorks 20 may not have the speed and advanced features of some of its competition, but it also doesn't have the high price tag. As it stands, it is an affordable solution for the small office, and the low cost of Konica-Minolta 20 toner is a great fit for small budgets as well.
