The Konica Minolta Magicolor 7830 is a color laser printer designed for the medium or large office environment. If you need a smaller small business oriented color printer, the Konica-Minolta 2430 toner printer should be considered. It offers blazing fast speed and excellent print quality, but its bulky design and high price tag mean it is suited for big offices only.
Large office environments are becoming more rare, as modern businesses tend to rely on fewer employees to get the job done, and even offices with many users tend to split employees up into smaller workgroups. But for the large office environment, a small office printer won't do. These offices need a model like the Magicolor 7830, which has the speed, quality, and high capacities to keep up with the highest volume environments.
Of course, all of this comes at a price. First, the Konica 7830's high price tag means that only a large office can likely afford it. Second, it is quite bulky, measuring 18.1 inches by 26.2 inches by 24.6 inches, and weighing 160 pounds, not including the weight of paper. At this size and weight, you won't want to be moving the 7830 around often.
Paper capacity is 530 sheets in a single tray, but more trays can be added at any time to increase paper capacity. There is also a 100 sheet multipurpose tray for media types and sizes that won't fit the standard tray. It is also interesting to note that the 7830's output tray can hold 500 sheets, so users can print on nearly a full standard tray worth of paper unattended. Multiple media sizes are supported, and the 7830 can support practically any media type you can throw at it. Networking is built-in, allowing the printer to be connected easily to an ethernet network for sharing across multiple computers.
Overall, the Konica Minolta Magicolor 7830 is a giant of a printer, both in size and in speed and quality. It takes a large office to need a printer of its size and price, but there is a lot here to like.
