Konica-MinoltaKonica Minolta Color Laser 2400 introduction : Konica Minolta USA introduced its color laser alternative to inkjet printers: the Konica Minolta magicolor 2400W and the magicolor 2430DL. The magicolor 2400-series makes color laser technology as affordable as inkjet printers. "SOHO users have typically thought of inkjet printers as the lowest cost option for color printing," stated Stephen Fletcher, president and COO of Konica Minolta Printing Solutions. "However, when such factors as ink consumption, print speed, output durability, and productivity are considered, users are realizing that inkjet printers are not as economical as they might seem, and are not really designed for today's high-demand office printing.
Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400 introductionKonica Minolta Color Laser 2400
The Konica Minolta 2400 printer series offers all the benefits of color laser technology, such as faster print speed, higher resolution "laser quality" output, more durable prints, and less frequent user intervention, in a compact but robust and reliable design. Starting at $399, the Konica Minolta magicolor 2400-series is well within the budgets of most home office and small business users.

Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400
Replacing Konica Minolta's award-winning magicolor 2300 family of printers, the magicolor 2400-series is nearly 20% smaller, almost 30% lighter and 25% faster than its predecessor, measuring just 16.9" x 15.6" x 13.4" (W x D x H) and weighing only 48 pounds. Despite their smaller footprints, the magicolor 2400W and 2430 DL are packed with the kind of high-end features that are commonly found on larger, more expensive color printers. Both models print up to 2400 dpi resolution on any type or grade of paper, at speeds of 20 pages per minute in black and white and 5 pages in color. Unlike inkjet printers, the magicolor 2400-series consistently prints at its fastest rated speeds, even in the highest resolution mode with full-page coverage. The magicolor printers can handle up to 8.5" x 14" (legal) size sheets of various types of media, including plain paper, letterhead, thick stock, glossy stock, OHP transparencies, laser-quality labels, and envelopes. With a monthly duty cycle of up to 35,000 pages per month, the magicolor 2400-series bests many of its challengers' reliability ratings. Its' high-capacity toner cartridges yield many more pages per unit than inkjet cartridges, resulting in a low overall cost per page and less workflow interruption for toner replacement.

Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400 - High tech but easy to use
The magicolor 2400's feature Konica Minolta's polymer toner technology which uses tiny, uniform-sized particles that are encapsulated in a proprietary compound to improve fusing on most media, even coarse, recycled paper. As a result, prints are more durable, with images and text that don't smear or fade. It also yields less waste, in the form of toner dust that remains on the surfaces of drum cartridges, transfer belt units, and rollers after a page has printed. This toner technology, along with the printer's automatic color calibration, produces smoother halftones, finer lines, more consistent colors, and crisper text, regardless of print quality selected or media type used.

Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400 - New optical technology
The print head on the 2400-series has been developed with new optical technology which allows for a wider angle. This greatly reduces the distance between the print head and the drum, and contributes to the printer's smaller size. The combination of these technologies gives the magicolor 2400-series unparalleled performance and reliability. Like all Konica Minolta color laser printers, the magicolor 2400W and the magicolor 2430 DL are designed for ease of use. They come with factory-installed consumables which make initial printer set-up fast and hassle-free. All operating functions, as well as toner replacement and paper jam recovery, are accessible from the front of the printer. There are only five consumable items that users must replace: the cyan, magenta, yellow, and black toners, which last up to 4,500 prints; and the drum cartridge, which can print up to 45,000 pages. And, the desktop status display allows users to check the print job queue, control the printer operation, and check consumable levels, right from their workstations. "In developing the magicolor-2400 series, our goal was to provide the consumer an affordable, small-sized, feature-packed color laser printer with the power, dependability and durability that users have come to expect from Konica Minolta printing products," stated Fletcher.

Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400 - Perfect PC companion
Developed for the Windows environment, the magicolor 2400W is a personal color laser printer that's compatible with XP, 2000, Me, and 98SE operating systems. It features a hi-speed USB 2.0 interface for local connections, as well as an optional 10/100BaseTX network interface. The magicolor 2400W has a list price of $399 (est. street). Boasting multi-platform capability, the magicolor 2430 DL is designed for Windows, Macintosh and Linux operating systems. An Ethernet 10/100Base TX network interface comes standard on the 2430 DL, along with a hi-speed USB 2.0 local connection. It also has an optional automatic duplexer for effortless two-sided printing. The magicolor 2430 DL has a list price of $499 (est. street).

Konica Minolta Color Laser 2400 - Ground-breaking technology
The magicolor 2430 DL is the first color laser printer that comes equipped with camera direct photo printing, which lets the user print pictures directly from a PictBridge-enabled digital camera with no PC required. The printer has an easy-access USB host port with PictBridge 1.0 compatibility for quick image downloads. This feature allows the user to control various photo printing options including resolution, paper size, media type, brightness, contrast, copy count, and rotation settings, as well as n-up, batch and index printing. The magicolor 2400-series ships with a one-year exchange warranty and a set of supplies, including cyan, magenta, yellow, and black toner cartridges, as well as a drum cartridge. These printers are available through Konica Minolta's network of retail outlets, e-commerce partners, authorized dealers, and distributors.
