Kyocera has thrown down the gauntlet to laser vendors with the launch of its entry-level FS-1010 ECOSYS printer, which it claims is the cheapest to run in its class. With a cost per page of 2.2 cents, the printer offers 14 page-per-minute print speeds and a first-page print speed of 12 seconds. USB and parallel ports come standard along with PostScript level 2 emulation. An optional network interface card is available for network printing and users can check the status using a remote operation panel at the front of the printer. The FS-1010 comes with 16MB memory, upgradable to 132MB and retails for $823.
