The Kyocera Mita FS-1700 Plus may not have the speed of other more capable laser printers in its class, but it can still output up to 12 pages per minute and is compact enough even for home use. It comes at an affordable price, and costs for Kyocera Mita FS-1700 Plus printer toner supplies won't bust the budget.
The design of the FS-1700 Plus keeps things compact, measuring just 12.2x14.7x15.1 inches and weighing only 30 pounds, even with the Kyocera Mita FS-1700 Plus toner installed. The input paper capacity is a little small, holding only 250 sheets in the main tray and 100 sheets in the multipurpose tray. Since the paper capacity is not upgradeable, buyers will need to decide if it fits their needs right away.
The other major limiting factor is that the FS-1700 Plus can only connect to a computer via parallel port. This means an adapter will be required for USB connections, and networking is not included, nor available as an upgrade. As a result, this machine is best suited for personal use. Its best feature, by far, is its 1200 dpi maximum output resolution, resulting in very sharp prints with a high degree of detail.
When users need replacement toners, they may find prices for Kyocera Mita FS-1700 Plus toner cartridges a little higher than expected. With an estimated yield of 20,000 pages for each Kyocera Mita FS-1700 Plus toner cartridge, however, buyers won't be spending a lot on a cost per page basis, so it works out to be a very affordable device to operate.
The FS-1700 Plus certainly has its limitations, from paper capacity that can't be upgraded to its lack of a USB port or networking. Still, it offers solid output speeds and very sharp print quality that might still appeal to bargain shoppers, especially given its low operating costs.
