Kyocera ECOSYS M3655idn M3660idn Review

Good: Document feeder that scans both side of a paper in a single pass, flexible paper trays that scale up to 2,600 sheets, Kyocera HyPAS functionality for running business applications.
Bad: No finishers available, doesn't support ledger-sized (11" x 17") paper.
Bottom Line: Robust series of black-and-white MFPs that help small-to-medium-sized workgroups maximize productivity.

Product Overview

The Kyocera ECOSYS M3655idn and M3660idn are the highest-speed in the ECOSYS lineup of black-and-white MFPs. The ECOSYS M3655idn ($3,473) copies and prints at up to 57 ppm, while the ECOSYS M3660idn ($4,998) runs at up to 62 ppm. Both devices include standard copying, printing, scanning, and faxing functions.

Both devices include a 1,200 MHz (or 1.2 GHz) processor, 1 GB of memory (that optionally expands to 3 GB), and 7″ color touch screen control panel. First-page-out copy time is 6 seconds with a warm-up time of 25 seconds or less.

PCL and PostScript are standard as well as XPS, PDF direct print, and Kyocera’s proprietary PRESCRIBE printing language. The devices also support USB and Ethernet connectivity. Wi-Fi is optional.

There’s also Kyocera’s HyPAS software platform that provide features such as Cloud Connect (for scanning to and printing from the cloud) and Mobile Print. Other features are the DMS Link for keeping up with document management needs, PinPoint Scan for scanning-to-PC functionality, and Microsoft Sharepoint Connector.

Users can print from their mobile devices via Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print or Kyocera’s dedicated mobile print app.

The devices also include Kyocera Fleet Services, a cloud-based monitoring service that lets dealers perform routine maintenance tasks for their customers remotely.

Despite their speeds, the ECOSYS M3655idn and M3660idn is intended for small-to-medium-sized workgroups that need a robust multifunctional.

Features

Paper handling on both devices start with a 500-sheet tray and a 100-sheet bypass. Users can optionally add up to four 500-sheet trays for a maximum capacity of 2,600 sheets. All paper trays support up to 8.5″ x 14″ paper.

The output tray is 500 sheets. There are no finishers.

Both devices include a 100-sheet dual-scan automatic document feeder. The monthly duty cycle is 250,000 pages on the M3655idn and 275,000 pages on the M3660idn.

Color scanning is supported. Scans can be sent to email, FTP, SMB, and USB. TWAIN and WIA scanning is also supported. File formats include PDF, JPEG, TIFF and XPS.

The faxing function includes a 33.6kbps modem with JBIG compression. Fax memory up to 6 MB is supported. Duplex faxing is included.

Standard security features include local and network authentication and LDAP, to name a few. There is an optional card authentication kit and a data security kit.
