Panasonic KX-MB2000 Printer Review
Panasonic might not be the first name many think of when shopping for a printer, but the Panasonic KX-MB2000 multifunction laser model is a very solid and affordable entry for the home user. It has a compact design that saves space, works as a standalone copier, and the cost of Panasonic KX-MB2000 printer toner is fairly reasonable for a home user's budget.
Weighing only 24 pounds, the unit is also quite compact. It measures 10x17x16.5 inches, so its desktop footprint is minimal. The number of features crammed into such a tight design is also impressive, considering it can print, scan, and copy. It does, however, lack faxing functions. The unit can print up to 24 pages per minute despite its compact design. It connects via USB or wired ethernet port.
The input tray is understandably a bit small, but it still holds up to 250 sheets. A flatbed scanning surface is included with this model, though other models in the series offer an automatic document feeder and faxing for those who need these features. PC Magazine gave the machine their Editors' Choice award, calling it an excellent value for users with light-duty printing needs, and praising its compact design.
Affordable toners are one of the best reasons to choose a laser model, and the Panasonic KX-MB2000 toner cartridges don't disappoint. Each replacement Panasonic KX-MB2000 toner cartridge can yield around 2,000 pages, and they are not too much more expensive than a set of inkjet supplies, making it a much better value.
Buyers who don't mind choosing a monochrome model will find the KX-MB2000 to be a great value for its low price. It can handle scanning, copying, and printing, and saving money on Panasonic KX-MB2000 toner is reason enough to consider it for home use.
