Hailing from Kyoto, Japan, Kyocera are another electronics giant that make some pretty cool printers. Kyocera printers include a wide range of laser and multi-functional devices, as well as making their own toner cartridges too – which we do happen to stock by the way, if you are interested.


To give you an idea of Kyocera printers and how well they perform, we have chosen 3 of their most highly rated models and taken them for a spin. Here is what we found:



Kyocera ECOSYS M2030dn

This multi-functional mono laser printer has everything you should hope for in a comprehensive modern device – it prints, scans, copies, and faxes. This printer even has some cool features like a duplex Automatic Document Feeder – or ADF – which eases and speeds large printing loads. Take it from us, this Kyocera printer would more than suffice at the heart of a small office or workgroup.


Kyocera Mita FS-1061DN

This next offering from Kyocera is a tad more basic but still has some winning qualities. Kyocera printers are known for their speed of printing and despite this being one of their lower priced models it still churns out pages at a decent rate. Kyocera’s Mita range is essentially driven at business customers though this device could easily find itself in the hands of a student or homeowner. It should be said though that this is quite a large printer, and with the feed tray open it does take up quite a bit of space.


Kyocera FS-C5150DN

 The last of the Kyocera printers we tested was this colour laser printer! With this device you can save on paper costs and give your documents a professional looking finish using the automatic two-sided printing feature. This printers also lets you print using sizes a4, a5, and a6, so it’s a really versatile little number! All-in-all this is a resourceful and efficient printer that will take care of all your colour printing needs no problem.

What we usually do when discussing printers is give you general brand information and tell what they do best, but for Lexmark printers we thought we would try something different. We thought we’d talk about 3 of the best rated Lexmark printers available today, so you have a flavour of the kind of range they offer, and the kinds of machines they sell.


Lexmark Prospect Pro205


This handsome little chap is a Lexmark Prospect Pro205, and we think it’s a great quality Inkjet printer that would be ideal for home/home office use. We don’t usually recommend Inkjet printers for text, but this Lexmark Pro205 produces great results. With the ability to scan, copy, fax, connect wirelessly, and of course print this multifunctional printer does it all. And if it’s graphics you’re after, this Inkjet really shines by producing some beautiful images!


Lexmark C543DN


Our next Lexmark printer is this C543DN. This is a reliable, high-specification laser printer that would work a treat in a small office environment. If you’re after impressive graphics then there are other Lexmark printers out there for you, but this particular model produces clean, crisp text that makes it perfect for printing out documents. The C543DN also comes with standard duplexing which is a real bonus on a printer of this price. This is a fantastic little colour printer with a great engine and an irresistible price tag.


Lexmark C748de


Our last offering to you is a real workhorse of a printer – the Lexmark c748de! We have given you an Inkjet printer for graphics and home use, a laser printer for small office use, and now this device is for speeding through far greater workloads. This high capacity laser printer is one of fastest around and should cope no problem with the busiest of work environments. The printing itself is extremely sharp with deep blacks, and it even prints photos to an exceptional quality also.


Konica Minolta Printers

Posted by

Konica Minolta are a Japanese electronics company that specialise in a wide range of imaging products. They make a wide-range of products from cameras to X-ray imaging systems, but it’s Konica Minolta printers that we’re interested in today!


Konica Minolta boast a product portfolio that is as cutting-edge as it is versatile! From systems such as their bizhub PRO and bizhub PRESS, to swift multifunctional devices and efficient laser printers, Konica Minolta printers feature innovative hardware that deliver exquisite results in black or colour.



Their laser printers in particular are much renowned. Konica Minolta printers satisfy a diverse range of complicated needs for home and office users alike – those needing network support, high quality imaging, high speed, compactness, and good value are extremely well catered to.  Konica Minolta’s colour laser printers in particular should be mentioned for their ability to achieve a fast output and print at a high quality simultaneously – and should you need toner cartridges for your Konica Minolta printer then make sure you check out City Ink Express.


Konica Minolta printers are also known for their comparatively low price. Even back in the 1980s when they were responsible for the KISS laser printer it was the cheapest of its kind, though that was $1995. Nowadays you will find a well-priced selection of laser printers and multifunctional devices that are equally competent in home and office environments. 


If you hadn't already gathered by now, continuous ink supply systems or CISS systems are a speciality for us here at City Ink Express. With continuous ink supply you are saving an incredible amount of both time and money with your printing, without ever compromising on quality. Our CISS systems are extremely popular, but they can be fairly tricky to fit and install. We offer as many installation tutorial videos as we possibly can over on our YouTube channel, but of course with the extent amount of printer manufacturers and models we cater for it's extremely difficult to get a tutorial done for them all! 


This is where our CISS printer bundles come in handy: you can purchase a fantastic quality printer with a built in CISS system and have it delivered to your doorstep. This is fantastic value for money and requires zero effort apart from the click of a button your end - what could possibly better? We have found our CISS printer bundles an extremely attractive option for customers, which is why we thought we'd draw up a quick top 5 list to show you which printer bundles our customers tend to opt for to help you make your decision!
