Kyocera Mita FS-920 review


Kyocera's FS-920 is a compact, sturdy and affordable mono laser printer that takes up only slightly more space than an inkjet.

Consumer review (

Great, realiable and economic printer


I've owned this printer for approx 7 years and it has served as my general home b&w printer. In this time, I've not had to replace a single toner cartridge and never experienced any technical difficulties with the printer. I currently have it running...

Reliable, low-cost
