The Kyocera Mita TASKalfa 3500i is a powerful multifunction monochrome laser printer that prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Its maximum print speed is a bit slow, at 35 pages per minute, but low-cost TASKalfa 3500i printer toner and a wide array of upgrades make it worth consideration for large offices on a budget.
One of the biggest improvements in the 3500i over previous models is its large, bright, full-color display. It works in tandem with the full keypad and dedicated buttons for each function to give users a lot of control without being difficult to use. Users can also closely monitor paper supply or view alerts when the Kyocera Mita 3500i toner supply is running low.
Nearly every aspect of the 3500i can be upgraded and configured to a buyer's liking. The paper capacity starts out at 1,150 sheets, which includes a 150-sheet multifunction tray, but can be expanded up to a maximum of 7,150 sheets. Buyers can also choose a reversing automatic document feeder that holds 100 sheets, or a dual scan feeder that holds up to 175 sheets and scans even more quickly, perfect for digital workflows.
Connecting the 3500i to a wired network, users have the ability to save scanned documents to a network folder or send them directly to an email address. A USB port is available as well, and a front-mounted USB port can support flash drives and other storage media.
Thankfully, this large device doesn't come with expensive toners. While the price of Kyocera Mita 3500i toner cartridges might seem a little steep, their yield of 35,000 pages provides and extremely low cost per page. Compatible TASKalfa 3500i toner cartridges can be purchased from third-party vendors at around half the price of OEM supplies, lowering costs even more.
If the purchase price of the device seems a little high, users should keep in mind it could potentially pay for itself in savings on Kyocera Mita 3500i toner over the life of the machine. With decent output speed, great connection options, and several different upgrades available, it is a versatile machine for medium or large office spaces.
