Information on top front of printer
5 Star Review   By Wanda on Adorama - Sep 27, 2013   

For the most part, I am very pleased with my Konica Minolta. However, the little screen on the top front of the printer is hard to read because it is too dark. I have to strain to read it or use a flashlight. I would suggest that you put a little light on this screen. When I began to get a message on my monitor that I was using a non-Konica Minolta toner cartridge and that your warranty does not cover any troubles caused by a used toner cartridge or non-Konica Minolta toner cartridge, I was miffed. The printer is practically new and it came with the ink cartridge! I called tech help and he had me look at the screen and read what it said. With great difficulty, I was able to discern that it said "toner out", which the tech help said meant that I am out of ink. I would like to suggest that you work out a system whereby, if the printer runs out of ink, that this erroneous message does not come up. A better message might be a warning that I am running out of ink, and then a final message that I am out of ink. Therefore, you may not have customers calling and asking why it said that we were not using the proper toner. Also, I was avoiding checking the little information screen on the printer because it was too hard to read. Aside from these two complaints, I'm quite happy with the printer. I'm quite shocked by the price of a new ink toner! When I called about the message on my monitor, the first tech helper did not know why it gave that message, either. He worked with me for quite a while, but couldn't get the message to go away. He said he would pick the brains of his co-workers and call me back, but he never did. So, after a few days, I called back. Today's tech help was able to tell me what was wrong, by encouraging me to read what the little screen said. It said "toner out".

Constant Trouble- Terrible Service
1 Star Review   By Kirk the Printer Hater on Adorama - Aug 8, 2013   

I have less that 1000 pages through this unit and it is worthless again. I had to have it replaced after just 60 days because of a loud grinding noise. Took forever to get the replacement, and forever to get them to agree to send it to me. Got the new one, it had an error message when it arrived. Got it cleared and working. Put it in a box after using it for less than a month. Took it out a year later, and it immediately had a fuser jam on every print. The paper doesn't even enter the fuser unit. New fuser is over $100, and I don't even know for sure that that is the problem.

Good MFC, Great Price.
4 Star Review   By Cazimmy on Adorama - Sep 4, 2012   

Can't beat the price. When the toner runs out just buy a new unit as it is cheaper than buying the toner.
