The Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 is a color laser printer designed for the personal or small office user. Its stellar output quality and impressive photo printing make it a good choice for users with high-quality color printing needs.
Most users who need high-quality color prints, especially photos, will opt for a dedicated photo printer. Users who need to print mostly text, on the other hand, will likely opt for a laser printer. Other users may be in the middle, needing sharp, laser-quality text, but also wanting solid color and photo prints. For these users, the magicolor 2450 would be an excellent choice.
The 2450 tends to come in a little more expensive than the competition, especially for a personal color laser printer. On the surface, it may seem too expensive vs. the competition, but when factoring print quality into the equation, the higher price becomes more justified. Print quality on the 2450 is its main strong point. Its text is as clear, sharp, and defined as printers costing much more. Color print quality, particularly photos, is where the 2450 really shines, however, much more so than the competition, such as the HP 3550 toner printer. The 2450 delivers extremely good color prints. Photo quality is almost on par with dedicated photo printers, with accurate colors and few flaws. All of this adds up to some of the best color prints of any color laser printer on the market.
This quality does come with some sacrifice in speed, however. Monochrome prints are relatively quick, at up to 20 pages per minute, but color prints at around 5 pages per minute. While these speeds will be adequate for many users, speed is certainly a big reason to choose a laser printer over an inkjet, so users looking to benefit from laser speeds may be a bit disappointed.
Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 toner cartridges generally have a capacity of 1,500 pages per color Konica Minolta 2450 toner cartridge and 4,500 pages per black Konica Minolta 2450 toner cartridge. However, they colors are also offered in a high capacity option. High capacity Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 toner cartridges have a 4,500 page yield and will not have to be replaced nearly as often as the standard version. The high-capacity lifts this unit above the LaserJet CP1518 toner printer.
Overall, the Konica Minolta magicolor 2450 offers extremely impressive color quality and photo prints that nearly match dedicated photo printers. All of this comes at a price, however, in both cost and in printing speed.
