The priciest model in Kyocera’s new series of business laser printers, FS-4300DN, is a good option that can be expanded to meet demand for the hardest tasks.

Kyocera Ecosys FS-4300DN

Kyocera Ecosys FS-4300DN

The main unit comes with a 500-sheet paper tray and a foldable 100-sheet multipurpose tray, bringing versatility to the device when it comes to media.

You can considerably accelerate paper handling of FS-4300DN by adding 4 more 500-sheet trays ($308 each), resulting a maximum input of 2,600 sheets.

FS-4300DN is well designed, with a front curved corner leading to a circular control panel. The latter is much more comprehensive than many competitive printers, and alphanumeric keys are also included to use with Private Print function.

You can plug in USB drive for printing without the help of a PC but there will be no color screen for navigation. A SD card reader is a custom supplement.

For those who worry about security, additional customizations allow you to add a 32GB SSD, and, by using Data Security Kit, help cleaning fragments of data.

USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet are included as standards. While most offices still use landline networks, you can add Wi-Fi as custom.

The device comes with Kyocera’s own controller language, Prescribe IIe, but it can also emulate PCL 6 and Postscript 3, along with other languages. Adding 500MHz CPU and 256MB of memory – upgradable to 1280MB – makes this printer a fast and accurate one.

Obviously, Kyocera promise a speed of 60ppm. Our test results couldn’t support this statement – with a normal 10-page document, we only saw 41.2ppm. However, it took around 6 seconds to print the first page then increased the speed later.

A 20-paper document was printed at 45.4ppm. We didn’t think you would exceed 50ppm even with a large print job, but Kyocera was, of course, a fast printer.

Even in highest-quality 1200dpi mode, the document didn’t appear as black as some produced by laser printers, though characters looked clear.

We won’t recommend Kyocera if you desire in-depth graphic work, though you don’t often use a mono laser printer for such purpose in any case. As a document-printer, it suits the job and we have never seen any faster model. Operating cost is also low. Kyocera’s drums are extremely durable, thus common replacements are only applied on toner cartridges. They are quite pricey, $150 (VAT not included), yet able to handle 25,000 pages. This lowers the cost down to 4p per page.

It’s amazing economical, plus meaning that Kyocera will quickly start make up for its large initial cost.

Kyocera also has low power-consumption, although it is not a quiet model. During printing, it exceeds 56dB, putting it among the nosiest printers we have ever tested.
