What is the Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP?

A mono laser multifunction printer, like the Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP, can easily be the heart of a home or small office, providing print, scan, copy and fax functions in one compact unit. Devices of this type have been around for many years and their designs are pretty well-established, but there are still innovations around.

Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP – Design and Features

The look of the FS-1325MFP is pretty conventional, with the side panels of the laser engine flared out to support a flatbed scanner, complete with a 40-sheet Automatic Document Feeder.

Although the footprint of the machine on the desk is quite small with the paper tray closed, when printing, it’s increased substantially. We’ve never really seen the point of this open and close design on anything but a very occasional personal printer, as you have to keep the printer open and ready, if you print at all regularly.

The main paper tray can take up to 250 sheets and has a hinged lid to keep the dust off. There’s a single-sheet feed for envelopes and special media just above the lid and an internal cover folds down above this to provide access to the toner cartridge.

The cartridge has been redesigned so that it slots in the left-hand side of the machine and is the only consumable. Kyocera Mita uses its patented ceramic drum, which lasts the full life of the machine.

Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP – Interface

There is no front panel USB socket, which is a little disappointing as it provides walk up printing and scanning, and the 2-line, 16-character LCD display, although backlit, is a bit small to read easily. Sockets at the back, as well as those for fax phone line and third-party handset, provide USB and 10/100 Ethernet connections.
Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP - Controls
Drivers for the printer and scanner are provided, as is support software for the device’s two novel features, programmed jobs and Print Boxes. With programmed jobs, you can set up specifics, like paper size, pages per sheet, orientation and then call them up with a single key. There are three programs each for the Copy, Scan and Fax functions and four – including a default – for Print Boxes.

With Print Boxes you can send a document to the Kyocera Mita FS-1325MFP as well as formatting settings and store them all in these virtual boxes, so again they can be retrieved with a single key press. This is ideal if you regularly reproduce the same notices or forms.
