End 6 seconds and spit out the first photo.
After that, every two to three seconds there will be a printed page.

132 toner cartridges, 7200 pages, range from $80 to $97.
Each box is priced at $86.
At the low end, the result is 1. 11 cents per page
Moreover, the drum life of Kyocera FS d is very long, so the hidden cost is not large.
This is the cheapest price per page on any monochrome laser printer I haven\'t commented on yet.
In the high-end market, the $97 toner cartridge is just over $1. 34 cents per page
It is also a very respectable person.
When you initially load the first toner cartridge, it takes about 15 minutes for the printer to initially charge
Although Kyocera assured users that this istime situation.

They noted that they were unable to calculate the cost of service and maintenance, and that they used the cartridges of the highest production produced by competitors for that printer because they were unable to know the cost of third-party ink. User reviews (4 out of 5)
User reviews are usually very positive.
While they do point out that this is the low end of ppm for workgroup printers, one user commented that it prints dense text 8 times faster than his 17 ppm inkjet printer.
For home offices and small offices, it is certainly within the acceptable range, and if equipped with optional network capacity, it is a usable printer for working groups, especially those that are low cost per page
Text quality is considered pretty good for office and external documents, which not all faster network laser printers can claim.
It also has a high rating for charts and tables that are suitable for distribution to customers.
Due to its gray-scale photographic reproduction capability, it is not recommended to use, even in 1200 dpi print mode, reports of weak patterns will be displayed.
One user pointed out that there is a problem with keeping the top and bottom edges safely, so print on A4 media in A5 landscape mode, and the text deviates from the center on the left or right.
No other user complained about paper shifting.
It won an award from a business lab company. (BLI)Conclusion (5 out of 5)
Kyocera Mita EcoSys FS-
D monochrome laser printer unknown-
However, it is the same as other printers on the Kyocera production line and is worth a try.
For personal printers, the price is a bit expensive and when purchased online, for small offices, the price is within a reasonable range.
Of course, even considering the price of network capacity (FS 1300DN)
For the working group, this should be considered, especially those working groups that produce large quantities of paper but hardly require immediate copying.
The total cost of ownership of Kyocera Display is absolutely excellent.
If you need a large number of copies, you can save for years by just paying a penny on one page --
This printer has been in use for many years.
Since the quality of the text is good enough to be presented to customers and is a standard copier, it is possible to ignore the need to refill the printer with paper more often than larger, more expensive laser printers.
Kyocera may not be a household name.
But it should look like an office word.
In the future, Bright Hub will focus on other printers and MFPs of Kyocera.
