Kyocera Mita FS-1030MFP review

 

Kyocera Mita's FS-1030MFP is a mono laser multifunction peripheral (MFP), aimed at home and small business users. It's a fairly compact device with a rapid 30 pages per minute (ppm) print speed and a network port, but at this price it's not...

This is an impressively cheap MFP to run, but it seems a little overpriced in the first place

Kyocera Mita FS-1030D review

 

If you like computer peripherals that are easy to set up, Kyocera Mita's FS-1030D probably isn't for you.

This printer has no network port, but even when using a USB connection it still manages to be fiddly to install. If you want to print only text, though, and you can live with its frustrations, the FS-1030D's low running costs make it great value.

Recommended!

Kyocera once again proves that it knows how to make personal laser printers.

The FS-1030D is a well designed printer which demonstrates improvements in print speed and running costs over the FS-1020D. It's also a little smaller, which is no bad thing. Some of the covers and trays feel a little flimsy and it remains to be seen...

Great value for money, they are long lasting and efficient on use of toner

Updating printer drivers can be difficult in a network environment
