Konica Minolta 7450 - Design|
The magicolor 7450, designed with powerful performance and excellent quality, was an "outstanding performer in the ledger-size category" and Buyers Lab's clear winner. Tony Maceri, BLI senior test technician, noted that the magicolor 7450 exhibited above-average efficiency and faster than average first-print-out times during BLI's extensive testing. Buyers Lab selected one of Konica Minolta's newest color laser printers, the magicolor 2550 DN, a "Pick" winner partially because of its low-price/high-value package.

BLI Senior Test Engineer Paul DePaolo noted "What's really nice about the magicolor 2550 DN is that for a very low price, you get automatic duplexing and a standard PostScript driver; this is important because PostScript is the industry standard for color printing and provides better color output than a GDI driver."
