Konica Minolta Laser Printers

Stock up on replacement cartridges for your Konica Minolta laser printer to avoid running out of toner in the middle of a busy day at the office. This brand offers different lines of toners for its monochrome and color laser printers. Check the large selection of printer supplies at Staples to find different toners for various laser printers made by Konica Minolta.

Find the right toner cartridges for your Konica Minolta laser printer
Determine whether the office machine is a monochrome or color model. Monochrome laser printing machines only need black toner, while color units need black as well as cyan, magenta, and yellow toner. A quick way to find the right cartridges for a specific model is searching a retailer's inventory with a toner cartridge part number. Konica Minolta provides this number on a label placed on the product. Alternatively, search available supplies by providing the printer's model number. Look for the machine's model number on the printer itself or in its user manual.

Choose between standard- and high-yield Konica Minolta laser printer toner cartridges
On average, a standard toner cartridge can print 2,000 to 3,000 pages before running out. With this page yield, it should last a user that only prints occasionally a couple of years. High-yield cartridges contain more toner powder and deliver more copies. A high-yield unit delivers up to 10,000 pages before it needs replacing. Because it lasts longer than a standard unit, the cost is less per page.

Most Konica Minolta printing machines can use both standard- and high-yield cartridges. High-yield units are best for users that regularly print as they help lower printing costs. Choose them for machines used in busy offices and businesses providing printing services. High-yield cartridges are also ideal for multifunction machines. In addition to printing, these all-in-one office machines also need toner to copy documents.

Do Konica Minolta laser printers use toner or drum cartridges?
This company makes machines that use both types of cartridges. A toner cartridge doesn't include a drum unit. Before installing it in a printer, remove the drum unit on the old cartridge and attach it to the new replacement. A drum cartridge includes both toner and drum unit. Choose this type to replace the drum along with the toner.

Should you get non-OEM cartridges for Konica Minolta laser printers?
Yes. Non-OEM units are from third-party brands. Non-OEM replacements from reputable brands offer comparable performance and print quality as the OEM units produced by Konica Minolta. They're usually more affordable and may be the only options available for laser printer models no longer supported by Konica Minolta.

Are remanufactured Konica Minolta laser printer toners the same as refills?
No. Refill kits come in plastic bottles containing fresh powder to put in spent cartridges. Remanufactured units are reconditioned cartridges pre-filled with toner powder. While both of them reuse spent cartridge shells, companies offering remanufactured units inspect and repair these shells before filling them with fresh powder. Installing a remanufactured cartridge is as easy as installing an OEM unit. Replenishing an empty cartridge with a refill kit can be messy and may damage the laser printer if not done properly.
