DataMaster Labs gives FIVE stars to the whole range: Konica Minolta Bizhub C458, C558 and C658   02 February 2017   

The Konica Minolta A3 Bizhub C458, C558 and C658 fast multifunction printers have been through the DataMaster Labs tests and analyses.  They have been awarded the rare and excellent rating of 5/5 stars.
The productivity of these machines, their flexibility and the quality of both hardware and software were all particularly appreciated.  Theirs is the fastest MFP document feeder ever tested by our laboratory (scanning double-sided originals at 222 ipm).  Multitasking (RIPping, scanning and even OCR simultaneously) has little or no impact on productivity.
The tablet-feel interface is very customizable really responsive.  There have been a few modifications to the layout in the last year, further improving their usability, which will prove particularly helpful to inexperienced users wanting to utilize higher functions.  Finally, these Konica Minoltas have excellent environmental credentials.  They run quite quietly compared to many of their competitors, and have a low environmental footprint, as demonstrated by their numerous certifications (Energy Star, Blue Angel and Epeat Gold.)
DataMaster's analyses and assessments are completely independent.  Five-star certificates are extremely rare.  To attain five stars, not only must the equipment under test demonstrate an excellent performance in most categories, but must have no major weakness in any of the evaluation criteria.  
Machines' evaluation certificates and the corresponding rosette badges (as well as those for other machines in the range with the same print engine, plus any rebadged machines sold by other brands) can all be downloaded for FREE from  The radar chart, the detailed results of productivity tests and other comparison tools are available on the DMO website, accessible by subscription.
