The Kyocera KM-1530 is a copier with a solid design that eliminates much of the bulk of a larger device, but retains most of the quality and speed that make laser copiers most appealing. For the price, however, many buyers might expect more functionality, as it focuses only on copying, and other functions require add-ons. One of its highlights is printer toner, though, as the Kyocera KM-1530 toner is cost-effective.
In the standard configuration, the KM-1530 is fairly limited. It only includes a flatbed scanning surface, and has no printing capabilities. Buyers can add an optional document processor that allows it to scan up to 70 pages at a time, but this adds to the cost, which is already higher than some models that include this feature. Another possible add-on is the network printing upgrade, which gives the machine both printing and networking support. Again, however, this bumps up the cost even more.
Despite some limitations, it does come with some nice features out of the box. The 250-sheet paper capacity is quite adequate for its target market, and there is an additional multipurpose tray for up to 50 sheets of other types of media, like envelopes, label sheets, and more.
As mentioned, cost-effective Kyocera KM-1530 toner cartridges may be the best feature, as most buyers will be looking for savings on toners. The high-capacity versions of the Kyocera KM-1530 toner cartridges can really keep things moving with their 11,000 page yield.
For a small device that can fit on a desk, the KM-1530 is not exactly disappointing, but for its price, it can be difficult to justify with some of its missing features, such as a document feeder. It is up to individual buyers whether the savings on Kyocera KM-1530 toner is enough to make it a good buy.
