"Great alternative to inkjet"4.0 starson by FabForrest
Pros: Very affordable, good quality.
Although Mac support is not officially listed (And drivers not provided) the Konica Minolta Magicolor 1680MF Mac printer drivers work perfectly.
Cons: Very basic. USB only, does not automatically duplex
Summary: I found this online for $120 (new) and is a great deal for this price, and still would be at the $180 it usually runs for. Although Mac support is not officially listed (And drivers not provided) the Konica Minolta Magicolor 1680MF printer drivers work perfectly.
Anyone considering an inkjet for home would be wise to consider this printer instead. Although an inkjet would better for printing photographs, this printer all around better for general document printing. It's faster and has much sharper text output than almost any inkjet would offer, and has well saturated, good looking color.
Those with a priority of printing photographs should probably stick with an inkjet. Photos on this (As with many color lasers) shows visible dithering. I find this to be acceptable for casual use and images integrated into documents. I prefer to use this printer and save my photos for the traditional print labs.
Features are pretty basic. Auto duplexing would be a nice feature, as would wifi/ethernet, but that is a lot to ask for in this price range for a color laser printer. This is not a professional quality, full featured printer, but for the casual user that just wants to print good quality documents without the fuss and constant changing of ink that is necessary with an inkjet, its a great deal.
Thanks for your submission!
