The Kyocera Mita TASKalfa 552ci is the fastest multifunction color laser printer in its series, with up to 50 pages per minute in color and 55 pages per minute in monochrome. Larger offices will certainly appreciate the speed boost, and the low cost per page of TASKalfa 552ci printer toner, but others might rather have the lower purchase price of slower models.
The "ci" added to the 552 in the model number are representative of its color printing, but also its internet faxing feature. For offices that still communicate via fax, having the ability to send faxes over the internet digitally could end up saving them a lot of money in paper and Kyocera Mita 552ci toner costs.
Also adding to the digital workflow features of the 552ci is its ability to scan up to 100 pages per minute, and an optional duplexing document feeder can be added for two-sided scanning. A 160 GB hard drive is included for storing documents, and features like Scan-to-Email and Scan-to-Folder could eliminate the need for faxing altogether, especially with built-in OCR features to turn scanned paper documents into digital files with editable and searchable text.
Despite its great features, the cost of replacement toners is always higher with a color model. There are four separate Kyocera Mita 552ci toner cartridges to replace, though they do have a low cost per page. The black supply provides up to 25,000 pages, and each color TASKalfa 552ci toner cartridge can provide up to 18,000 pages of output before expiring.
The 552ci certainly offers fast printing and great output quality for its class. Its best features might be its internet faxing and digital scanning workflows, however, which actually lessen the need for printing and help users save money on Kyocera Mita 552ci toner supplies.
