    Bought this printer to handle heavier card stock, among other things. It does handle 110lb stock one sheet at a time for certain, and with quality stock, numerous sheets stacked in the paper tray. Colored photos on the printed page are a bit dark so use photo program to brighten up your images a bit prior to printing for best results. I've found a gamma correction between 1.30 and 1.60 depending on the original contrast of the photo replicates itself better once printed on the 1650EN. I had an issue in the first week with cyan streaks down one side of the page all of a sudden (wasn't printing anything overly complicated or colorful) and noticed a strange pattern on the cyan cartridge. I followed the manufacturer's suggestion and "printed" 5 blank sheets. This eliminated the cyan streaks. The printer is pretty quick to print from energy saver mode, and has good crisp output. It does pull a fair amount of power so try to use a dedicated outlet where you won't even come close to tripping the breakers. It's somewhat equivalent to a microwave oven when it pulls power to run. Overall, a good value, good print quality with considerations and one I'd recommend for standard BW and color printing as well as the occasional card stock needs. If anything else fails or adversely happens, I'll update my review ASAP.

    It prints okay in B&W on letter paper.

    Very noisy (you almost have to yell over it). No internal tray (feels cheap). Tiny tray (legal paper just hangs out). VERY SLOW (compounds with noisy). Prints too DARK, with no adjustment (using other software to adjust driver washes out color and also leaves your digital document looking poor.) The print almost never looks like the photo you took. Had to replace the fuser after about 200 pages. OEM toner is hyper-expensive. Now has decided that it won't print within .5" of one edge, and of course all of my books are formatted closer than that. There are also scaling problems creating lines on the page when printed from Windows Paint or photo viewer.

    Also, wehn I bought this it was listed as 9600*600 resolution, now 1200*600. What's up with that?

    Don't even get me started on the duplexer and all of it's undisclosed limitations...

    BOTTOM LINE: You end up printing several test pages for EVERY page you print in color because it's nearly totally random how it will look once printed. I have about 100 waste pages sitting next to me right now, many way off in color, all waste because of trying to fix various (not even all listed) problems with this printer. BUY ANOTHER PRINTER!

        The printer works very well, prints with good quality color and black and white as well. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the print speed is a little slow. However, everything else about the printer is great and I would definitely recommend it for a small office or a home office, which is what I'm using it for.

          I've had two other of this series in the past, and the same holds true for this one; reliable performance, and great color rendition. I'm a graphic designer, so color integrity was the highest of my requirements for a laser printer (my inkjet does better, but at a much higher cost and slower speed). The only reason I replaced my previous model was that the fuser roller was creating a light stripe on the prints, and a replacement wasn't available. But it was 10 years old, and the price of this one was a no-brainer.

            I just purchased this printer as a replacement for a 10-year-old Okidata C5300 that had worn out. So far, it seems to be fine. Much quieter than the old printer and faster, too.

            I'm a graphic designer, so I needed something reliable for printing samples and just for the work flow. I also wanted to spend as little as possible, but still getting reasonable quality.

            Setup was fairly easy: plugged the USB into my wireless router, downloaded the latest PPD from their website and installed, and that was it. I'm running Lion and the PPD works fine with it.

            I really like the smaller footprint and most especially the price. It remains to be seen what the toners will cost me over time.

            I have a HP Inkjet color printer. But the ink dries out very quickly. Per page cost is very high.

            I decided to buy a color laser printer. I did some research and found this Magicolor 1650EN. I ordered the printer from B&H and received it in just a few days.

            The printer is easy to setup and printing quality is excellent. Since I don't print a lot, so the printing speech is not a problem for me.

                        Don't know why people keep saying this printer is slow, as it is one of the fastest laser printers I've ever worked with!

                        Great price, fast, compact, good print quality. Unlike some of its competitors, it doesn't rely on OS specific driver software to configure or print to. it uses the decades standard PPD text file to let the OS know how to use it and a built-in, comprehensive web site to configure it.

                        If you need an inexpensive color laser, I highly recommend it!

                        Amazing price for color laser printer this class (newer are faster but what you can say about print quality).

                        [...] I replaced my worn-out Konica Minolta magicolor 2350EN color laser printer ($700) with a KM magicolor 1600W ([$]), which had excellent reviews on PC Mag, etc. Wrong! I print color graphics and photos, which required 128MB RAM and Postscript on the 2350EN. The 1600W has only 16MB and no Postscript; its memory was full and overflowed on simple 3.2MB .jpg photo – enlarged to 27.5MB when printed from Photoshop Elements, let alone scanned color covers of Architectural Digest.It took me three weeks to figure out what was wrong; the blinking yellow light on the 1600W indicated "memory full." Konica Minolta technical support was excellent (after one hour on hold), using remote access to take control of my Sony VAIO All-in-One, confirming that the problem was lack of printer RAM, and trying unsuccessfully to find a work-around. The only solution was to exchange the printer for a KM magicolor 1659EN with 256MB, Postscript (and Ethernet, which I don't use at home). [...]It works perfectly, with a much simpler paper path – which helps in recovering from rare paper jams, and replacing consumables. In simplifying the paper path, KM made the toner cartridges smaller (to fit a smaller toner carousel), reducing high capacity cartridges from 4,500 to 2,500 pages (PC World), which raises the cost per color page to $.15 (MacWorld).A great home color laser printer!

                        I chose this printer based on the reviews on this site and others, which stated how great the printing was. I also need a printer that took heavier weight paper, this printer took the paper no problem, no jamming, but the ink coverage was spotty and streaky. If you need nice looking prints do not buy this printer, if all you need it for is printing out driving directions than this will work for you.

                          I bought this printer to replace an old Magicolor 2350en which still works. I bought this 1650en because the old 2350en was in daily use for 7 years and naver had a problem but I wanted a smaller, quicker printer. The new 1650en is smaller, lighter, and quicker to print. I use it in a small home office and print 15-20 pages a day. It prints great color and is quite quick with the first page out and fairly rapid after that. It was easy to set up as a shared network printer in Windows7 and only a little harder with XP. I do think that the toner cartridges are priced too high and Konica Minolta should rethink their pricing for toner. Also the cartridges are low capacity even when full. However, I'm generally happy with the purchase.

                          Bought this printer to handle heavier card stock, among other things. It does handle 110lb stock one sheet at a time for certain, and with quality stock, numerous sheets stacked in the paper tray. Colored photos on the printed page are a bit dark so use photo program to brighten up your images a bit prior to printing for best results. I've found a gamma correction between 1.30 and 1.60 depending on the original contrast of the photo replicates itself better once printed on the 1650EN. I had an issue in the first week with cyan streaks down one side of the page all of a sudden (wasn't printing anything overly complicated or colorful) and noticed a strange pattern on the cyan cartridge. I followed the manufacturer's suggestion and "printed" 5 blank sheets. This eliminated the cyan streaks. The printer is pretty quick to print from energy saver mode, and has good crisp output. It does pull a fair amount of power so try to use a dedicated outlet where you won't even come close to tripping the breakers. It's somewhat equivalent to a microwave oven when it pulls power to run. Overall, a good value, good print quality with considerations and one I'd recommend for standard BW and color printing as well as the occasional card stock needs. If anything else fails or adversely happens, I'll update my review ASAP.
