Product Overview

The bizhub C3110 joins its single-function cousin, the bizhub C3100P, in Konica Minolta’s color line-up. The C3110 runs at 32ppm in both black and color; it has a first print time of 12.9 seconds in both modes. Warm-up time is a good 36 seconds. It has standard printing, copying, and scanning features, with optional faxing.

More details on this device’s features is in our Features section below.

We don’t have the information to calculate the cost per page, however, based on history, we think this will be similar to older Konica Minolta machines. The yield for the toner (for all colors) is 6,000 pages with the imaging unit’s yield as 30,000 pages each for black and color.

The bizhub C3110 has a good speed, decent paper handling, and good multifunctional features. It is a good buy for small-to-medium businesses that don’t have a lot of printing needs and need a compact MFP.

USB and Ethernet are standard; Wi-Fi is optional. The C3110 supports PCL and PostScript, as well as direct printing of PDF, JPEG, TIFF, and XPS.

Shortcomings

We don’t have the information to calculate the cost per page, however, based on history, we think this will be similar to older Konica Minolta machines. Customers should negotiate toner prices with their Konica Minolta dealer.
