Outline

The machines meet a variety of office work needs, including greater job efficiency, cost savings and stronger security, and offer the same level of operability as a bizhub color multifunction printer. Konica Minolta offers the optimal layout of color and black and white machines for the office. While the products are black and white multifunction printers, they can scan in color. This helps you create electronic copies of your color material as is for sharing and usage. Other features making the machines usable for everyone include a large tilting color liquid crystal panel, animated guide and voice guide. Moreover, low-temperature fusing with polymerization toner that includes plant-derived components in its materials helps save power and benefits the environment.

Evaluation

This model is by no means an entirely new model, but we would like to give it high marks for being the culmination of an attitude toward the development of multifunction printers that has involved several years of efforts. For a long time, the series has employed a tilt-type operating panel, a user interface that has undergone remarkable progress, and other aspects of both the hardware and software that demonstrate an unceasing quest to achieve the ideal device. We approve of its policy of continuing to produce good products without eliminating factors that increase costs, and the hardware displays a well-balanced unique strength of design.
