You are going to have a very easy time maintaining this machine due to the fact it only uses one Kyocera Mita FS-1010 toner cartridge. This printer toner is black, and it can last around 6,000 pages. For most home users, this will last for months, maybe years. While using it, resolutions as high as 1800x600 dpi can be created. Up to 15 black-and-white pages per minute can be created.
