Has anyone any experience of this printer? Trying to decide whether to
buy it or not.

Cheers

    Not that one specifically, but Kyocera printers are generally very
    good in my experience, and significantly cheaper to run as well.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll probably go for it, as online reviews look good.

    I went and bought it in the end. Initial tests seem fine, with good
    output quality, speed and the printing noise levels are not overbearing,
    unlike Samsung printers I've experienced. Duplexing also works well,
    with no jams yet.

    There was however one exception - printing the 91-page KX Printer Driver
    manual (PDF from Kyocera's website). It missed out all the n's in the
    document! I'm not going to give it another shot as I don't want to
    waste all that paper just to see if it does it again, but it is odd and
    a little frustrating. It managed the 150-page Operation Guide for the
    printer without any problems. Any thoughts from anyone?

    Regards

    That is seriously weird. :)

    Never had any problems with Kyocera printers. Mind you, I've never
    printed out the driver manual either ;-)

    Hi David

    I bought the FS-1020D here in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago. The price was
    good: 13,500 baht (about GBP 195). My experience so far has been similar to
    yours, although I've used only 16% of the starter toner according to the
    remote operation panel.

    I had no problem printing the KX Driver operation guide, using Acrobat 5.0.5
    and the 2.2.0930d driver for WinXP (PCL XL PDL, Download True Type fonts as
    outline). What settings are using to print?

    Regards

    I printed under Acrobat 6.0 (Win XP) using the 2.3.0211 driver (my
    supplier failed to ship the CD initially so I downloaded the driver from
    the web, hence the newer version), in the default PCL XL mode and set to
    download fonts as outline. I tried it again, cancelling the job after
    the first page, and the same problem came up - it's very odd. I wonder
    actually if it is a problem with Acrobat Reader rather than the printer,
    since I tried printing the same file (again, cancelling the job after
    the first page) using GSView and it worked nice and dandy.
