Kyocera TASKalfa 408ci

The TASKalfa 408ci is the perfect A4 MFP for small and medium-size businesses. That’s why it is the printer of choice for many law firms, accountants, mortgage brokers and financial service providers who rely on high-speed A4 printing for most of their workload. The excellent scanning speeds are a bonus as many of these businesses need to maintain digital records of transactions and agreements.

While you might assume that scanning speeds are an afterthought in the TASKalfa 408ci, like some other cheaper Kyocera business-class printers but that’s not the case here. The scanner technology is just as capable as it is with higher-end printers by Kyocera but at a lower price point.

The other biggest pro of the TASKalfa 408ci is the fact that it bears Kyocera’s unique long-life components which are known to be extraordinarily durable, and highly reliable. So, businesses benefit from highly productive document output while minimizing downtime and waste. Plus with a first page out time of 6.2 seconds, the TASKalfa 408ci is amongst the fastest printers by Kyocera that’s bound to save businesses a great deal of time.

A Quick Look at TASKalfa 408ci’s Technical Specifications

The TASKalfa 408ci comes with a 1 GHz processor, 4GB of ram or memory and a 320 GB hard drive which is pretty standard across Kyocera’s midrange business printers. The 7” inch 800×480 resolution color screen makes accessing all the features and fine-tuning them a lot easier.

The printer also supports a multitude of printing languages including Kyocera’s own PRESCRIRBE language, XPS, PostScript and PCL. Plus ethernet and USB are also standard, while you can always get Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet as an add-on. However, the big advantage of Wi-Fi is the ability to make use of mobile printing via mobile devices like iPhones. Business users can send print jobs over the air via Apple AirPrint, Kyocera Mobile Print or Google CloudPrint.

Excellent Paper Handling

The TASKalfa 408ci’s paper handling begins with the standard 500-sheet tray and the 100-sheet bypass tray. However, business users can also invest in the optional 3100 sheet max out tray, or a 500-sheet tray in addition to a few others. The best thing perhaps about these trays, including the ones that come bundled with the printer is they all accept paper sizes of up to 8.5″ x 14″. The device supports banner size papers too.

The monthly duty cycle of the 8.5″ x 14″ is around 150,000 pages. Plus, users can choose from many different finishing options like with a 300-sheet internal finisher that has 50-sheet multi positioning stapling, five-bin mailbox and a job separator.

Security Features

The TASKalfa 408ci is one of the few printers in its class that uses advanced security features to ensure document confidentiality, availability and integrity. The feature helps businesses comply with the security requirements of their industry.
