Laser printers can supply your office with great prints, color clarity and reliability to your office or workgroup. The Konica Minolta magicolor 5430DL color laser printer is no exception along with the magicolor 2430 toner printer. The unit is a little bulky and boxy, as are many of the other models in its class. This particular model does not have an onboard processor to render your prints; instead the Konica 5430DL color laser printer relies upon your computer's processor. This can be good and bad. If you don't have a powerful enough processor in your computer you may want to look elsewhere for a solution. With a price that's around $1000.00 this model would make a great personal laser as well. The 5430DL adds duplexing and extra paper handling.
As for the unit's use in a busy office, it falls short. It only prints 4 pages per minute for text and a little less than 2 minutes per color document. It is also good to note that it does not deliver the speed needed for demanding businesses and offices. This is mainly because it relies on your computer's processor, not its own. Color quality is acceptable, but not stellar, perfect for a home personal laser. If you do not need full color documents you may consider using the QMS magicolor 5430DL only for an office that simply needs to add color to a document, or has lower print volumes every month.
The Konica Minolta magicolor 5430DL toner cartridges have 6,000 pages per cartridge for each color laser toner cartridge. The black printer toner cartridge also has a capacity of 6,000 pages. As for installation, the Konica Minolta 5430DL toner cartridges are like many others, straight-forward and simple.
The network installation is simple enough and you can connect the Minolta 5430DL to a single computer using the USB 2.0 connection. If you do experience any trouble the well laid out installation guide can guide you through the process.
