The Kyocera Mita FS-C5300DN (sometimes referred to as simply FS-C5300) is a fast and compact color laser printer that can print at up to 28 pages per minute. Kyocera Mita FS-C5300DN printer toner is fairly affordable, but replacing all four toners can get expensive. Warm-up times are fast, and color output is very sharp, though photos could be better.
Although it can handle fairly large printing volumes, the FS-C5300DN manages to be pretty compact. It measures 18.9x13.6x20.4 inches and weighs 65 pounds, so it doesn't require a lot of space in its standard configuration. Adding extra paper trays can boost its capacity from 650 sheets to a maximum of 2,150 sheets, but only increases its height, not its footprint.
Professional reviewers praise the machine's excellent color output, particularly for charts and graphs, but note that its photo output is often grainy or fuzzy. Users who do a lot of photo printing might consider a different model. Automatic duplexing is included, and is a great way to conserve paper, especially for internal office memos and other basic printing. An ethernet port is included for network sharing, as well as a rear-mounted USB port for connecting to an individual computer, and a front-mounted USB port for plugging in a flash drive or other storage device.
Replacing the Kyocera Mita FS-C5300DN toner cartridges is a simple process, but costs can add up. Using high-capacity Kyocera Mita FS-C5300DN toner cartridges with yields of 10,000-12,000 pages will be the most cost-effective option.
With a few eco-friendly features like duplexing, solid networking support, fast speeds, and high-quality output, the FS-C5300DN is an impressive machine at a reasonable price, and Kyocera Mita FS-C5300DN toner won't break the budget. Those who need excellent photo quality might be a bit disappointed, however.
