The Kyocera Mita FS-C8030 can bring multifunction color laser printing to the small or medium office, with a maximum output speed of 30 pages per minute. Equipped for printing, scanning, and copying, with options for faxing, there is very little it can't handle. Some users might find its 600 dpi output limiting, however, and the cost of Kyocera Mita FS-C8030 printer toner supplies is a little high.
The base model of the FS-C8030 is fit for smaller office environments, with a 500-sheet main paper drawer and a second 100-sheet multipurpose tray. It still includes automatic duplexing for both printing and scanning, however, with a 50-sheet automatic document feeder that can get stacks of documents converted quickly. It even has room to grow, with a maximum input paper capacity of 1,600 sheets when all options are installed.
The full-color touchscreen control panel is easy to use, with a wizard interface to walk users through complex tasks. It is particularly useful for sharing scanned documents, with options to save a file to a network folder, insert a USB flash drive for storage, or email the scanned documents as an attachment. This will largely replace the need for faxing in most modern office environments.
There are four Kyocera Mita FS-C8030 toner cartridges used in color printing: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Replacing all four toners can start to add up, and the yield of each Kyocera Mita FS-C8030 toner cartridge is a little on the low side (6,000 pages for each color and 12,000 pages for black.
The FS-C8030 could make a great starter machine for a smaller office with expansion in its future. Buyers who are willing to customize it could also make it a good fit for a medium-sized office. Its print speed could be a bit faster, however, and replacing Kyocera Mita FS-C8030 toner can get expensive.
