The Konica-Minolta PageWorks 8 is a simple and functional laser printer designed for the small or medium office environment. It has a compact frame and a lightweight design that doesn't require much space. Print speeds are on the slow side, at only 8 pages per minute. In addition to the base model, the 8E model includes PCL 6 support, and the 8L model adds extra paper capacity. Printer toner costs are low, thanks to affordable Konica-Minolta 8 toner.
In its standard configuration, the 8 might be a bit underwhelming by some standards, but many optional upgrades are available to make it a more useful device. The memory can be expanded from the 2 MB of included RAM to a maximum of 34 MB. The paper capacity can be expanded by adding additional paper trays, allowing it to handle larger printing volumes.
Users won't need to replace toners often, as PageWorks 8 toner cartridges have a capacity of 6,000 pages. Combined with their low price, this gives Konica-Minolta 8 toner cartridges a very low cost per page as well, making it a very economical machine. Using compatible PageWorks 8 toner instead of OEM versions will help reduce costs as well.
Compared to other models in its class, the slow speeds and limited memory of the 8 are major disadvantages. The unit's low upfront price, combined with the affordability of Konica-Minolta 8 toner, however, make it more economical than many faster models, especially for buyers who only need basic features.
Buyers who want a simple and straightforward printer may find a lot to like in the PageWorks 8. Its low price and low running costs make it an efficient device that should be very reliable and easy to operate. Buyers who value fast print speeds and advanced features should probably look elsewhere.
