Printing, copying and scanning are the main functions of the Konica Minolta bizhub C450. It was designed to increase efficiency of large or growing businesses. With the increasing popularity of multi-functioning units, the C450 certainly steps up the game with higher quality and faster speeds than much of the competition. Though it does lack a fax machine, the scanner and copier tend to appease the needs of most modern work environments.
As far as speed is concerned, this unit is among the best. When using the color Konica Minolta C450 toner, 22 pages per minute can be printed or scanned. Using the black bizhub C450 toner, as many as 35 pages per minute can be produced. In the past, fast speeds meant lowering quality, but that is not the case for this color laser printer. Quality is high, boasting resolutions that tend to tower over the competition.
The scanner features OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software, which converts scanned text into editable text on the spot. It can also scan documents and send them via the internet fax machine. Other software provided by the manufacturer simplifies navigation and helps consumers explore the various features and bounce back and forth easily from multiple functions.
The four Konica Minolta C450 toner cartridges are filled with cyan, magenta, yellow and black printer toner. The Konica-Minolta toner
cartridges can produce 11,000 pages each, which will fit the needs of almost any work environment. Replacement bizhub C450 toner cartridges are available from the manufacturer and from third party vendors. The third party vendors offer compatible and remanufactured versions for a much more affordable price. Purchasing replacement Konica Minolta C450 toner in bulk is also another way to save some money.
Overall, this 220 pound laser printer is too big for a home but just right for a company on the rise. With lightning fast speed and crisp and clear quality, the C450 will be employee of the year.
