As a worthy upgrade from the FS-4200 base model, the Kyocera Mita FS-4200DN adds duplexing and networking, making it a well-rounded monochrome laser printer for small or medium workgroups. Its fast speed of 50 pages per minute is impressive, but the low cost of Kyocera Mita FS-4200DN toner cartridges might be what impresses buyers the most in the long run.
The FS-4200DN starts out with a fairly modest input paper capacity of 600 sheets, divided between a 100-sheet multipurpose tray and a 500-sheet universal paper cassette. Both can support media sizes up to A6, as well. Larger workgroups won't be left out, however, as its maximum input capacity is 2,600 sheets with optional upgrades.
It connects to a network via ethernet port, with support for Gigabit speeds, and has optional upgrades for wireless support as well. Once connected, office managers can monitor the printer's usage, paper supply, and even the remaining levels of TASKalfa FS-4200DN printer toner from the Kyocera NetViewer embedded software on any Windows PC.
The maximum output resolution of 1200 dpi provides very sharp quality, especially for text, and the machine can warm up in around 20 seconds. The first page prints in around 9 second or less. A front-mounted USB port is great for connecting flash drives for direct printing without the need for a computer.
The impressive speed of the unit wouldn't mean much if replacement toners were overly expensive, but Kyocera Mita FS-4200DN toner is actually quite affordable. The TASKalfa FS-4200DN toner cartridge can provide up to 21,000 pages, which makes the device extremely cost-effective. The Kyocera Mita FS-4200DN toner supply included with the device only supplies up to 10,000 pages, however.
The FS-4200DN should have a broad enough appeal to target a busy small office or even larger workgroups with a lot of users. This workhorse laser printer has the speed and upgradeable paper capacity to handle a variety of different office sizes and workloads, with inexpensive supplies to reduce operating costs.
