Kyocera Printer Reviews

Kyocera Printer Reviews.

Kyocera Printer Reviews. When you start researching Kyocera copiers and printers, you can quickly see a few recurring themes. They’re proven to be highly reliable, exceptionally cost-efficient and ahead of the pack when it comes to sustainability.  This review is going to cover what you need to know about Kyocera as an organization, their line of copiers and printers, as well as a few expert opinions on how well Kyocera devices perform.

In 2018, Kyocera was named the Most Reliable Colour Copier MFP Brand 2018 – 2021 by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab, the leading source of document imaging industry data and test results. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at what the company offers and what people say about Kyocera copiers and printers.

A Brief History of Kyocera

Kyocera is an award-winning printer manufacturer. 2019 marks the 60th anniversary of its beginning in a small factory in Kyoto, Japan. In its early days, the company focused solely on producing industrial ceramics products.

Today, Kyocera Group is a multinational manufacturer of ceramics, electronics and office technology and has nearly 77,000 employees worldwide. Kyocera got into the printer business in 2000 with the acquisition of Mita Industrial Company, which later became Kyocera Document Solutions.

Kyocera Printers and Copiers

Like most top brands, Kyocera manufactures a wide range of laser and inkjet printers and multifunctional devices that incorporate faxing, scanning, copying and printing. Overall, the printers have a reputation for being extremely reliable, economical to run, easy-to-use and capable of producing high-quality prints in large volumes.

When it comes to operating costs, Kyocera products have a unique advantage over the competition. Using their expertise in ceramics, the company manufactures its printing devices with unique long-life ceramic drums, which use less energy and heat. Kyocera’s Ceramic particles are also added to the toner to clean the drums while they’re working. This means Kyocera devices need far less servicing and have much lower operating costs than many other brands.

Why Choose Kyocera?

Here are three areas where Kyocera copiers and printers get exceptionally high marks:


The Buyers Lab Reliability award that Kyocera won back in 2018, was for its ECOSYS® A3 line of colour MFPs. Reviewers looked at the entire line, calculating misfeeds, reviewing service calls and testing total impressions. It gave each model a 10 out of 10 and concluded that downtime would rarely be an issue with any of the Kyocera devices.

Kyocera’s TASKalfa line of  colour printers are also known for its above-average performance in image quality, speed and multitasking capabilities.

Several models were among six Kyocera MFPs included in the BLI Summer 2019 Pick Awards. BLI experts praised the devices for their reliability, performance and also value, calling them “true workhorses with exceptional reliability.”

Cost efficiency

Kyocera offers low overall cost of ownership compared to other brands. This is because of the way Kyocera  products are designed. Most laser printers have imaging cartridges that integrate a drum, developer and toner into one unit. This means that the cartridge has to be replaced each time the toner runs out.  Instead, the Kyocera printer’s ceramic drum is separate from the toner cartridge and is designed to last 100,000 pages. (up to 600,000 pages, depending on model)

On the software side, Kyocera has a sophisticated application platform called HyPAS™ (Hybrid Platform for Advanced Solutions) that can expand the capabilities of your MFP to streamline business processes and improve digital workflow.


The Kyocera ECOSYS line of printers are designed to reduce environmental impact and minimize running costs. Kyocera’s are built to use as few consumables as possible. This means less maintenance, lower operating costs and easier recycling of used components. Kyocera is also recognized for its climate change initiatives. The company has set a target to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 30 percent by the year 2030. This goal is officially endorsed by the Science-Based Targets initiative.

The Bottom Line

Once you decide on the kind of device you need and the specific features and capabilities it must have, you’ll have little trouble finding a Kyocera model to suit your needs. And, it’s clear from the many positive reviews that Kyocera is a brand with a diverse line of products in which you can feel confident in investing.

But we understand the choices can be overwhelming. So, if you need more help, please contact one of our office equipment experts, and we will be happy to answer any questions.

A4 Colour Kyocera Multifunction Printer – Coastal Business Equipment

                           New Kyocera A4 Colour MFP picks up award.

                                            KYOCERA TASKalfa 406ci Highly Recommended by Buyers Laboratory

Osaka, Japan – March 16, 2016 – KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc., one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced that Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) has certified the Kyocera TASKalfa 406ci multi-functional printer (MFP) as both “Highly Recommended” and “Highly Reliable” for 2016. BLI is a leading independent provider of product intelligence for the imaging industry, trusted by buyers and IT directors around the world.

BLI cited Kyocera’s “outstanding reliability,” and noted that their excellent features combined with ease of network setup, colour print productivity and robust functionality “make for an outstanding value.” Moreover, BLI said that the TASKalfa 406ci MFP compared favourably to other devices in its class, with “more advanced finishing, strong scanning and enhanced ease of use.”

Marlene Orr, Director, Office Equipment Product Analysis at BLI said, in summary, “The TASKalfa 406ci offers the robust functionality of a large device in a more compact footprint, and at a much lower price than larger devices in this speed range.”

“It’s an honour to receive such a strong recommendation from Buyers Lab.” said Ryuzo Morita, Director of KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. and Senior General Manager of its Corporate Strategy Planning Division. “We believe that this device, high reliability backed up by Buyers Lab, will certainly help to optimise our customers’ document workflow.”

The evaluation was comprehensive. For approximately two months, BLI conducted assessments of virtually all features, capabilities, and performance measures: reliability, multitasking, image quality, ease of network set-up, print drivers, administrative utilities, scanning, and feedback to workstations.

Testing for the Reliability Certification was particularly rigorous, including both simplex and duplex jobs and a range of paper sizes and stocks. The TASKalfa 406ci performed exceptionally well, completing 150,000 print impressions and 15,000 scans with only one misfeed and not a single service interruption. BLI Senior Test Technician Tony Maceri commented: “Truly impressive… combined with simple procedures for routine maintenance, users can be assured of maximum up time.”

Image quality was assessed for both black-and-white and colour, and in both standard resolution and 1200-dpi mode. But it was the high-resolution output that really caught the attention of Joe Ellerman, BLI Manager of Laboratory Operations: “Skin tones were very natural, and colours were vibrant with detail that jumped right off the page.”
