The Konica Minolta magicolor 2400 color laser printer is a budget-priced model with the quality and speed to match most workgroup models, like the HP 1500 toner printer and the HP 2400 toner printer. With its compact size, just 13.4 by 16.9 by 19.8 inches (HWD), and weighing only 44 pounds, it will fit easily into most small spaces.
Setup for the Minolta 2400 color laser printer, also known as the QMS 2400, is very simple, requiring users to remove packing materials and some shipping tape. The color toner cartridges and black toner cartridge are pre-installed, and are ready to print as soon as it is plugged in and connected. Software installation is also a breeze, and users will be up and running in just a few minutes.
Print speed is impressive for the price of this laser toner printer, at 20 pages per minute for monochrome prints, and 5 pages per minute in color. Print quality is average for a color laser, with sharp text and decent graphics quality. Text quality suffers on some fonts when printing smaller than 8 points, but other fonts can print as small as 4 points without quality loss. This is typical in budget-priced laser models, but worth considering if your needs include a lot of fine-print printing.
Konica Minolta magicolor 2400 toner cartridges have a capacity of 1,500 pages for the standard color laser toner cartridge. There are also much more economical, high-yield versions of the Konica 2400 toner cartridges. These cartridges have a capacity of 4,500 pages for both the color and the black printer toner cartridges. The quality is not quite as good as that of some competing models, such as HP 2550 toner, but is still very good.
The 2400 includes a USB 2.0 connection, but no included ethernet port. Network sharing will have to be done through an external print server or through a connected PC. Duplexing (double-sided printing) is possible, but only by manually re-feeding the paper. The software walks you through the steps to feeding the paper back through correctly, making it a fairly simple process.
Overall, the Konica Minolta 2400 ink toner printer strikes a good balance of price, speed, and quality that will make it a very good choice for its price. Quality and speed are better than expected, and if buyers can do without a few lacking features, such as built-in ethernet and automatic duplexing, it represents a great value for a color laser printer.
