Konika Minolta BizHub C352 Review
The Konica Minolta BizHub C352 belongs to Minolta’s high-performing BizHub line, one the most efficient line of multifunction copiers in the high-end market.
With a speed of 35 pages per minute (ppm) for both colored and BW, the BizHub C352 is a bit slower than the other models in the BizHub line, but is a reliable workhorse with a monthly duty cycle of up to 100000 pages per month.
However, this speed is still way above the industry norm of 30 ppm and is a minuscule issue if you’re to consider the copier’s spectacular all-in-one features and other quick-and-easy functional add-ons.
Aside from its copying, printing, scanning, and faxing functions, this model is equipped with plenty of additional features that make it easy to operate and perform tasks that are beyond its four basic functions.
Its impressive color quality, for example, is made possible through the patented Konica Minolta Semitri Color Polymerized Toner technology that can produce cleaner and crisper color output on paper. For BW printout, a larger-than-average black toner cartridge allows for more ink content and helps lower printing cost per paper.
The C352 has a standard duplexing feature that enhances its speed through simultaneous double-sided printing on top of its already fast and efficient copying, printing, and scanning functions. Its built-in 40 GB hard disk drive allows users to save large amount of files, both texts and images, for future printing, copying, or transmission as documents without connecting to a PC.
This model can operate without being connected to a computer because of its built-in hard drive that stores files and USB ports that can acquire files from mobile sources. If at all, PC users would want to connect to this copier if they want to explore and use the features available in this all-in-one workhorse.
If you’re into the production of marketing collaterals, this multifunction copier provides users an option that will allow them to use the FS-5412 finisher to print a 60-page booklet, complete with crease folding, center stapling, 2/3 hole punching, a mail bin and output tray.
There is not much to complain about the Konica Minolta BizHub C352 except for the fact that it’s expensive for ordinary users and it can occupy too much space in an office. But if you want to streamline your printing operation with speed, quality, and functionality as your main consideration, then this is the copier you.
