Konica Minolta 2300W

We recently purchases a Konica Minolta magicolor 2300W and it seems
extremely noisy when printing. Lots of clicking, etc. Their tech support say
this is normal.

We tried our card stock in one in the store before purchasing and I did a
little research prior to our purchase. It just seemed such a good deal at
the time. It prints very nice on regular and gloss stock. We wanted
something to replace our HP inkjet that isn't fully supported (drivers) with
Win XP Pro.

Does anyone out there use a Konica Minolta magicolor 2300W and can you tell
me if it is noisy and are you satisfied with it?

Thanks much

Judith

I have a 2350 which shares most components with the 2300, and yes it
is very noisy. I assume most of the noise is generated when each toner
cartridge is ratcheted into place during printing. I had read some
posts that it was noisy but had no idea it would be as noisy as it is.
But it really is an excellent all-around printer and the trade-off of
some noise is OK with me - but I don't print a lot anyway.

Mine has the ethernet interface so I can move it away to another room
if necessary; but, I can see where it could be an issue if it was
expected to be in the same office/room as where someone was working
and it was printing most of the day.

That said, I now see Samsung has some color lasers that are billed as
"The Quiet Color Revolution" so I guess those would be less noisy??

Thanks for your reply. We are happy with the printed product so I guess we
will just have to put up with the noise. I am actually getting used to it in
the few weeks we've been using it.

Hi,

The noise made is by the toner cartridge rotation system.

Every colour you need is separated by for toners in a cylinder turn
table type device which you will ahve noticed.

Newer color lasers like the oki c5000 have a far better solution to
this .
