Kyocera has launched three new monochrome laser printers designed by F.A. Porsche. The printers - FS-720, FS-820 and FS-920 are targeted at business users and deliver the lowest cost per page (CPP) and total cost of ownership (TCO), says the company. The FS-720 is Kyocera's first graphical device interface (GDI) printer, which delivers a print speed of 16 pages per minute (ppm) at a resolution of 600 dpi, and has a USB 2.0 interface for easy connection to the user's PC. The FS-820 also produces 16 ppm, but delivers a 1200 dpi resolution and comes with both USB and parallel interfaces. The FS-920 prints at a speed of 18 ppm and provides a resolution of 1200 dpi. These laser printers are built on Kyocera’s proprietary ECOSYS technology, which according to the company ensures high reliability and come with a closed paper cassette. The 'drawer-type' cassette is sturdier than a 'tray-type' cassette, since when it is closed it is totally integrated into the body of the device. This means the paper is not exposed to the outside and so the paper is protected from dust and humidity. The paper cassette also features a paper gauge, so the user can clearly see how much paper is left in the cassette without having to open it. All the three devices come with a three-year or 1,00,000-page (whichever is earlier) warranty on the printer drum. The new laser printers are stylishly designed with two-tone design in light and dark grey colours. The FS-820 and FS-920 also come with client management software, which allows users to monitor the usage of the printers through the USB port.
