The Kyocera FS-1700 is a laser printer that delivers excellent printer speeds of up to 12 pages per minute, but doesn't take up much more space than the average consumer model. Its sharp output quality is provided by the 600 dpi printing engine, and even the printer toner costs are impressive, as large-capacity Kyocera FS-1700 toner is inexpensive. The FS-1700 Plus model even includes a duplexing upgrade and extra paper capacity.
Small offices often mean there is only one person maintaining devices, so the FS-1700 is designed to require very little maintenance. The drum is long-lasting, and is unlikely to require replacement for multiple years, and only minimal cleaning is required inside the machine. The paper capacity consists of a 250-sheet main tray and a multi-purpose tray that can hold 100 sheets. The parallel interface and lack of a USB port is the only major downside, though an adapter could be used very easily.
When toners need to be replaced, the design of Kyocera FS-1700 toner cartridges makes insertion quick and simple. The Kyocera FS-1700 toner cartridges include a surprisingly large capacity of 20,000 pages, so the cost per page is very minimal.
User reviews of the FS-1700 give it high ratings, with users praising its speed, quality, and quiet operation. Problems mentioned include beeping when the tray is empty, and printing issues when the Kyocera FS-1700 toner is running low. Users also praise its networking abilities, but the lack of color is a minor issue in some cases.
For the buyer who wants a solid monochrome printer, the Kyocera FS-1700 should fit their needs and still keep them well under budget. Its speeds aren't the fastest, but its reliability and low-maintenance design make it a worthwhile contender.
