Kyocera TASKalfa 352ci

The TASKalfa 352ci signalled a new direction by Kyocera when it was launched a couple of years back. The 352ci was intended to provide businesses both large and small with an affordable all in one solution (printing, copying and scanning) without compromising print speed or print quality.

The TASKalfa 352ci includes several enhancements over its predecessors like a faster processor, a larger user interface, more memory and mobile capabilities. Plus, it was amongst the fastest business-class printers around at launch capable of printing 32 pages per minute.

Speed and Flexibility

The TASKalfa 352ci’s first time page out for color takes just 7 seconds, making it still one of the fastest even six years later. The printer comes with 4 MB of memory, a 1 GHz processor and a generous 320 GB hard drive. Plus it supports XPS, PCL and PostScript printing, in addition to Kyocera’s PRESCRIBE language.

The TASKalfa 352ci comes with both USB and Ethernet connectivity. However, Wi-Fi can be added and is sold as an optional add-on. Wi-Fi capabilities bring with it the ease of mobile printing using Google CloudPrint, Kyocera Mobile Print, and Apple AirPrint.

The printer comes with a customizable 9” color touchscreen interface which is a lot like a tablet or an iPad perhaps. Users can choose to use any one of Kyocera’s 60+ business applications via its Hybrid Platform Advanced Solutions (HyPAS) interface. If anything these features put the TASKalfa 352ci on par with many of Kyocera’s more expensive MFPs that cost more than twice as much.

Excellent Paper Handling

The TASKalfa 352ci offers a lot of paper-handling options which start with two 500-sheet trays and then there is a 150-sheet bypass tray. However, business owners can buy an optional paper tray which tends to max out at 7150 sheets.

The 500-sheet tray that comes bundled with the printer accepts up to legal-sized paper. The optional and bypass tray can accept up to 12” x 18” size paper. The device allows for adding three optional feeders which include a 50 sheet reversing automatic feeder for documents, a 140 sheet reversing automatic feeder and then there is a 270 sheet feeder that also scans both sides of a page with a single pass.

Business owners can also choose to buy the optional home punch kit and a 1000 sheet finisher or a 4000-sheet finisher whichever suits their workloads the best. However, the 4000 sheet finisher may offer the most value with its 65-sheet multi-position stapling feature.

Security Features

The TASKalfa 352ci supports a couple of security features like network authentication, LDAP authentication and secure print. The optional features offered include hard-drive overwrite mode, a data security kit and encryption.
