Kyocera Mita FS-C5150DN


There's very little to dislike about Kyocera Mita's FS-C5150DN colour laser. It has the speed and feature set of a much more expensive machine.

Front panel USB port ; 250 + 50-sheet multipurpose tray ; Comparatively low running costs

Toner set is more expensive than printer ; Bigger LCD would help USB print ; Default sleep mode a bit quick

The four toner cartridges clip in under the hinge-up top cover and preparation takes 10 minutes or so, as the toner is fed down into the machine. After that, the only maintenance is replacing toner and the waste bottle, which fits behind a flip-out...

Kyocera FS-C5150DN review - a low priced laser

If you need to print lots of colour documents every day then the FS-C5150DN may not be fast enough for you. However, its competitive running costs ensure that it is still a good choice for any business that needs a high-quality printer that will help...

Excellent buy


This printer has revolutionised my work. My previous printer was an Epson DX5050 inkjet, which took 6 hours to print a particular set of documents. This printer took less than 20 minutes to do the same job - and I did not have to stand over it to check...

Good quality print; excellent after-sales support


Print quality is good and paper handling for duplex work is smooth. The machine originally delivered printed small dots in spaces that should have been blank: Kyocera were very helpful and immediately sent a replacement. My one negative would be the...
