For most of the twentieth century, most people knew the brand Minolta because of its cameras. The company, which was founded as the Japanese-German Photo Company in 1928, took the name “Minolta” in 1933. The company expanded its share of the camera market in Japan and later the United States after World War II. The company started to diversify in the 1970s and beyond, and by 1994, they changed their name to Minolta Co., Ltd. to reflect the fact that it was no longer just a camera company. In 2003, the company, which by then had the successful line of Magicolor laser printers under production, merged with Konica to form Konica Minolta Holdings, Inc. Though Konica Minolta continues to produce Magicolor laser printers, there are still plenty of Minolta color laser printers still in circulation. These can be found at electronics resellers, online retailers, and sometimes in thrift stores.

Magicolor Minolta Color Laser Printers

If you are looking for a deal on a color laser printer, then a pre-2003 Minolta color laser printer could be a good option. It is possible to find older model printers in this line for well under $50 for some online sites. Though they may be less reliable and harder to get fixed than newer models, they could probably be replaced for less than the cost of fixing them, so this consideration is not as relevant as it might be for more expensive items. One of the older, and therefore cheaper, Minolta color laser printers still in circulation is the QMS MINOLTA Magicolor 2300DL. Weighing in at over 60 pounds and standing over a foot tall, this printer is not exactly a space saver. It is also compatible only with Windows (2000, 98, ME, XP), so Mac users cannot use it. It has a print rate of 16 black and white pages per minute and a color printer rate of 4 pages per minute, so its not suitable for high volume office. It has a printer resolution of 2400 × 600 dpi, and has both IEEE and USB output options, which is helpful in an older model printer. Although it is a little dated, with the ability to print envelopes, labels, and other options, this printer could still be helpful for the at home user looking for a reliable (but not necessarily cutting edge) printer. Other pre-2003 Minolta laser printers can also be found on sites like ebay and Amazon. These include the Minolta Magicolor 3300 and the Magicolor 6100. Finally, while toner cartridges for these older model printers may sometimes be difficult to find at office supply stores and other retailers, it is not difficult to find them online.

If you are looking for a color laser printer for your home and do not want to spend a lot of money, then an older model Minolta laser printer could be a good option. With models and accessories readily available online, these printers could save you a significant amount of money while still providing quality images and documents.
