Press release from the issuing company
MOBILE, Ala.--Nov. 17, 2003-- With advertisements breaking in USA TODAY and on radio stations nationwide, KONICA MINOLTA PRINTING SOLUTIONS today announced a $200 rebate on its magicolor 2300W. Already an amazing value at $699 (est. street price), the manufacturer's rebate sets the magicolor 2300W's price point at an unheard of $499, making it the lowest cost color laser printer in history.
First available in March, 2003, the magicolor 2300W shook up the market with its initial $699 price. It has been touted as an "economical workhorse" and the "best value around." With the cost-cutting $200 rebate, individuals can easily justify purchasing their own personal color laser printer.
The magicolor 2300W features a compact size and user-friendly design, making it ideal for small businesses, home use, and executive offices that need a reliable color solution. Print speeds are comparable to many black-and-white workgroup printers at 16 ppm monochrome as well as 4 ppm in full color. The printer also has a 200-sheet multipurpose input tray, USB and parallel interfaces, 1200 x 600 dpi print quality, and 32 MB RAM. Compatible with Windows operating systems, the affordable magicolor 2300W is at home on any desktop.
