The Low Cost of Owning a Kyocera Business Printer

In general, the cost of owning a Kyocera business printer is lower when compared to other brands. In part, that’s due to the way their products are designed. The majority of laser printers available today use imaging cartridges with a built-in drum, toner, and developer included in the unit. So, each time the toner runs out, the cartridge needs to be replaced. The Kyocera 5053ci, similar to other Kyocera printers, use a ceramic drum which is not part of the toner cartridge, which in turn means that it lasts longer and often lasts for the life of the printer.
