The Konica Minolta magicolor 2480MF is a color laser printer with multifunction features designed for the home or small office. Its feature set is extensive, but its bulky size and weight make it a difficult fit for tight spaces.
The design of the magicolor 2480MF is large and heavy. The unit measures 20.9 inches by 23.1 inches by 18.7 inches (HWD) and weighs in at a hefty 70.4 pounds. While this is not overly large for all-in-one laser printers, it makes it a difficult choice for home office users, who may have limited space. Its heavy weights means it will take at least two people to move it around, another potential problem for the home office. The built-in ethernet port makes it easy to connect and share the printer across a small network of users, but its capacity and speed are not designed for a large number of users. The 2480MF should have no trouble accommodating a small office, however.
The multifunction features of the 2480MF include printing, scanning, copying and faxing. Scanning and copying can be done either with the flatbed scanning surface or the automatic document feeder, which allows up to 50 pages to be automatically fed and scanned. Setting up the device is a simple process. Remove the packing materials, unlock the scanner, connect a few trays and cables, and run the setup process, and the unit is ready to be used. Clear instructions make the process easy.
Print speed is fairly good, at 20 pages per minute in monochrome and 5 pages per minute for color. Competing units offer faster speeds, but most of them lag behind the 2480MF in print quality. The print quality of the 2480MF is excellent, offering sharp, clear text and surprisingly good graphics and photo quality for a laser printer.
Konica Minolta magicolor 2480MF toner cartridges are the perfect size for a home or small office, like the HP 1500 toner. The standard color Konica Minolta 2480MF toner cartridges have a page yield of 1,500 pages. For those users who will be doing a bit more printing, high capacity color Konica Minolta 2480MF toner cartridges contain 4,500 pages. This is a cost saving measure and will probably be less complicated for the user as the Konica Minolta magicolor 2480MF toner cartridge have the same page yield.
Overall, the Konica Minolta magicolor 2480MF is a great color laser printer with well-designed multifunction features. Its print quality and decent speeds add great value as long as its bulky size and weight don't turn buyers away. The HP LaserJet 2550 toner printer has similar specifications and should be considered if the Konica size is too big.
