Konica Minolta DI152 Printer Review
The Konica-Minolta DI152 is a fairly fast multifunction laser printer that can print up to 15 pages per minute. It can also handle copying, scanning, and faxing, and the inclusion of both an automatic document feeder and a flatbed scanning surface make these tasks easier and more efficient. Best of all, Konica-Minolta DI152 printer toner is very affordable, with a low cost per page.
The base machine of the DI152 is relatively compact, with dimensions of 19.25x23.25x24 inches, though it weighs a fairly hefty 85 pounds. The automatic document feeder can hold as many as 50 sheets for quick scanning, and scanned files can be sent as email attachments directly from the machine for a very convenient solution. The standard input paper capacity of 275 sheets can be expanded to a maximum of 600 sheets for a growing office, though this will expand its size significantly.
The control panel may seem a little intimidating at first, as it includes a large number of indicator lights instead of an LCD screen. Users will likely get used to its operation, but its complexity is one downside of the design. An ethernet network port is included for easily sharing the unit among multiple computers and users.
Replacement toners come in a package that includes two Konica-Minolta DI152 toner cartridges, both black. The total yield for the package of Konica-Minolta DI152 toner cartridges is around 22,000 pages, and prices are affordable, with a cost per page of less than a penny.
Overall, a small office can greatly benefit from the speed and print quality of the DI152, as well as its multiple functions. An LCD screen would have made its control panel easier to use, but its affordable retail price and low-cost Konica-Minolta DI152 toner make it worthy of consideration as a basic multifunction device.
