The Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 color laser printer is a middle choice between the compact models on the low end of the spectrum and larger models that are too expensive for smaller budgets. It can print at speeds of up to 35 pages per minute, with up to 9,600 dpi print quality that is very impressive. Buyers might find Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 printer toner a little too pricey, however.
The FS-C5400 (also referred to as the FS-C5400DN) starts out with a fairly modest feature set, but it can quickly expand for larger output volumes. It includes a paper capacity of 650 sheets, with one 500-sheet main tray and a 150-sheet multipurpose tray. It can support up to 6 drawers total, however, for a maximum of 2,650 sheets of input paper capacity.
The unit includes a standard USB port, but also an ethernet interface for sharing it among multiple computers and several users. Automatic duplexing is included, so users can print on both sides of the page and save paper, and multiple quality modes are included so that users can prioritize higher quality or saving on Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 toner.
Replacing toners is a simple process, even with four to replace, but this ups the cost of Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 toner cartridges considerably compared to the average monochrome model. Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 toner cartridges are a little on the expensive side, but each color provides up to 16,000 pages of output, keeping the cost per page manageable.
For sharp, bright color printing in a busy small or medium office, the Kyocera Mita FS-C5400 is an excellent choice. Some buyers may want a bit more speed, but its affordable price and expansion options make it worth serious consideration. The price of supplies is a bit of a concern, but using the machine's different quality modes can help reduce costs.
