Sporting a bright, full-color display on its touchscreen control panel, the Kyocera Mita TASKalfa 5550ci is an inviting multifunction color laser printer. Digging a bit deeper, buyers will appreciate its maximum speeds of up to 55 pages per minute, as well as inexpensive TASKalfa 5550ci printer toner supplies. For a large office, it works out to be quite a bargain.
Eschewing the typical beige, the 5550ci has the boldness to go for a dark gray exterior that blends in with its environment. The base model starts at a moderately compact size of 29.4x26.3x30.2 inches, though it weighs a heavy 251 pounds, including the Kyocera Mita 5550ci toner supplies.
Its footprint may quickly expand with the addition of upgrades, however, such as the optional finisher or extra paper trays. Since its input paper capacity can reach a maximum of 7,650 sheets, it certainly has plenty of room to grow into heavy-duty workflows.
The touchscreen control panel is a highlight of its design, with dedicated buttons for each major function to make menu navigation quick and easy. An internal hard drive sets the device up to be a useful document sharing solution for networked offices, and features like Private Print can keep documents safe from prying eyes.
Users who don't like replacing toners will be glad to know that color Kyocera Mita 5550ci toner cartridges last for around 20,000 pages, with the black supply lasting for 30,000 pages. Compatible TASKalfa 5550ci toner cartridges are available from third-party sellers for a lower cost per page.
There is so much to like about the 5550ci that the only real downside may be its hefty purchase price. Its fast speeds and wide variety of upgrades make it a top choice in its class, and savings on Kyocera Mita 5550ci toner might be enough to offset its price tag.
