Kyocera Mita FS-820 Review
Being significantly cheap and long-lasting, FS-820 is aimed at small and midsize businesses, which is another entry-level monochrome laser printer by Kyocera Mita. It harmoniously combines the lasting component life, cheap running and maintenance cost and considerable print quality that’s fairly being a great performer in the printer industry. Unlike typical laser printers which commonly resemble large boxes, FS-820 in cream color is a bit different with its curved top seemingly halted in a sudden by a straight cut in its front plastered in dark gray color which is also the same color revamped in the output tray. This design made by FA Porsche should fit the looks of many personal computers along with some highlights on top: two buttons for initiating and terminating printing jobs and two indicators in green and orange with shine that flashes and steadies depending on the condition it indicates.
Being designed under the ECOSYS technology, running cost is budget-friendly as well the wastage is reduced making it environmentally friendly. Thanks to the drum technology of Kyocera Mita, the unit drum component is made to last longer guaranteeing a life of up to 100,000 pages covered by a standard 1-year return-to-base warranty. The long lasting toner cartridge is as well refillable making toner the only consumable. The durability of its components made the cheap running cost a main strength for FS-820 compared to many printers in the market as its rival.
In the age of 30 and 40 PPM (pages per minute) printers and probably for printers of its batch, a per minute printing speed of 16 PPM by FS-820 is a bit of disappointment which makes it suitable for home use of light printing jobs but not for offices with heavy and rush printing needs. Photo and graphic print was generally fine only that visible horizontal banding occurs frequently on some outputs and text print is unusually second-class with a bit of spattering in edges and is seemingly too heavy. Set-up and installation is as well confusing and time-consuming for a non-technical user. Operating system compatibility is also a hassle as by default, it is incompatible to newer operating systems namely Windows Vista and 7 since its compatibility are on operating systems prior to its release or in the case of Windows OS, its compatibility is only until Windows XP and so driver/s (if available, which may be found directly in the official manufacturer’s site) is/are needed to be downloaded and installed to be compatible with these newer operating systems.
