Pre-2003 Merger Models

While all laser printers manufactured by Minolta since 2003, when the company merged with Konica, have been produced under the Minolta-Konica label, a number of Minolta laser printers can still be found online and at other retailers. The Minolta company traces its roots back to 1928 when Kazuo Tashima established the Japanese-German Photo Company. For most of its first fifty years of existence, the company was known for its cameras. As the company expanded in the middle part of the 20th century, they began to produce other items such as photo copiers, fax machines, and laser printers.

Minolta Laser Printers

The merger of Konica and Minolta in 2003 soon resulted in the end of the independent production of Minolta laser printers. However, a few Minolta printers were produced in 2003-2005. These, along with several other pre-2003 Minolta laser printers, can still be purchased online or in used electronic stores. Although the company has continued its Magicolor and PagePro laser printer line with the Konica Minolta brand, other Minolta laser printer lines are no longer in production. If you are looking for an older model black and white laser printer, then the Minolta QMS PagePro 1250W Computer Laser Printer might be worth considering. This printer, which was introduced in 2002, only works with Windows (XP, 2000, NT 4.0, Me, 98, 95). One of the bigger advantages of this printer is its compact size (248 square inches). Even today laser printers can be somewhat bulky. This was doubly true in 2002, so this compact model was in many ways ahead of its time. It features a 1,200 × 1,200 dpi resolution and has a 150 page paper tray. Although the printer only produces black and white images, its high image quality makes it possible to print even highly detailed black and white images. It also has both an IEEE and a USB output, which is especially helpful for an older model printer. The printer has easy to use settings for resolution and paper size, along with other features, including watermarks. Although it is almost ten years old, this Minolta laser printer could still be a viable (and inexpensive) option for the home or even small business office. Several other older model PagePro Minolta printers can also be found online, from used electronic retailers, and sometimes even in resale stores.

One of the disadvantages of buying an older model Minolta printer might be a difficulty in finding toner cartridges. While it is often possible to find toner cartridges for some of the PagePro printers in office supply and electronic stores, some of the older models might have outdated cartridges. Fortunately, however, most of these older model cartridges can also be found online. Often, it is easier to find toner for some of the older printers than it is to find the printers themselves. For example, the PagePro 8 laser printer is quite difficult to find for sale online. However, sites like ebay and Amazon.com have many toner cartridges for the PagePro 8 for sale.
