Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn in More Detail

Kyocera has made improvements to its range of colour laser printers by adding the ECOSYS P6021 which combines better energy efficiency and integrated double sided printing to reduce the environmental impact of your printing.

Quality for the Small Office

The focus of the Kyocera P6021 is to provide small groups of workers with high quality colour prints whilst maximising productivity by keeping costs low.

Colour and mono prints are both printed at up to 21 pages per minute and an in-built 667MHz processor ensures even the large jobs are handle quickly and effectively.

Low output noise levels and long lasting components ensure waste is always kept to a minimum so that small office teams can work uninterrupted.

Energy Efficient

The ECOSYS branding stands for ECOlogy, ECOonomy and SYStem printing. Maximum durability ensures minimal running costs, minimal administration tasks and minimal maintenance requirements. Enjoy the freedom of maximising your work-flow without having to worry about what your printer is doing.

The P6021cdn features a modular design meaning that extra components such as additional paper storage, memory upgrades and hard disk drives can be added later, helping your print capabilities grow alongside your business.

The completely integrated system requires only the toner cartridge to be replaced, toner capacities of up to 3,500 pages (1,200 pages include in the box) means this cartridge only rarely needs to be replaced.

    Cheap and slow

    This printer is relatively cheap, but that is reflected in it's performance - it's frustratingly slow. It takes ages to warm up before it's first print and repeatedly hangs when printing multiple documents or pages to add more toner.

    Ideal Home Printer

    When my Inkjet printer reached the end of its life I decided to replace it with a Laser printer. I read many reviews of printers and compared Specs and running costs. When I was ready to purchase I spoke to Printerland sales and explained my requirements . They suggested the Kyocera which I hadn't considered.The print quality is very good and it is not too noisy.The airprint facility is very useful and as the printer has some longlife components with a 3year guarantee I think this is a good home office printer.

    Great printer, great price, great service

    The printer is exactly wanted something at a reasonable price with an AirPrint interface. It has solid Kyocera build quality that I know to expect. Took ten minutes to unpack, setup and print to from a Mac. Although printer land did try to up sell me over the (they are business after all) they did process the order efficiently and the printer was on the doorstep the next day. Great service boys!!

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Please note. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn Trusted Review

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn review

What is the Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn?

Colour laser printers start quite cheaply now, but you get what you pay for and the £150-ish models tend to be slow and cost a lot to run. Kyocera’s ECOSYS P6021cdn is a mid-range machine which would suit a small business, but is expandable enough for a reasonable workgroup, if its workload increases.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn - Design and Features

Its dark grey and off-white colour scheme does little to relieve the printer’s fairly substantial dimensions, though quite a bit of this is its height. It has a small enough footprint to sit on a desk, but can also be placed on an optional, castored storage cupboard, ideal for storing paper and cartridge supplies.

The top surface forms the output tray of the machine, which can be fed from the 250-sheet main tray or the 50-sheet multi-purpose feed that folds down from the front. A further two, 500-sheet trays can be added as options, giving a total expanded capacity of 1,300 sheets.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn - Controls

The control panel is in a thin horizontal strip on the front edge of the machine and offers a two-line, 16-character backlit LCD display and a series of control buttons. It works quite well, though the horizontally scrolling menu takes a bit of getting used to.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn - Cartridges and Connections

The four toner cartridges are easy to access by hinging up the top cover of the Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn. They are the only consumables and clip into four slots, one behind the other. The photoconductive drum is a lifetime component, thanks to Kyocera’s patented ceramic coating, which lasts a lot longer than more conventional drums.

At the back are sockets for USB and Ethernet, though unusually the Ethernet port is gigabit rather than 10/100, so the printer should cope with a large throughput, coming from a number of sources.

We had to download drivers as an ISO DVD image and burn our own disc, as none was supplied with the printer. This may be a problem isolated to review samples, but it has happened with the last three Kyocera machines we’ve reviewed, so make sure you have the relevant ‘country kit’ supplied with the printer.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn - Print Speeds

Kyocera rates the ECOSYS P6021cdn at 21ppm for both mono and colour print. Our 5-page black text test returned 11.5ppm, exactly half the rated figure, but this rose to 15ppm on the 20-page test. It’s not a bad speed for a colour laser, though you’re looking at 15 to 20 seconds for the first page of a job to start printing.

Draft mode print, which is more properly an eco-mode, is no faster than normal print, but it should save you toner, as it’s a much lighter print. The 5-page black text and colour graphics test gave 11.3ppm and our 20-page document printed duplex – two sided printing is standard on the machine – produced 8.8 sides per minute. A single page 15 x 10 cm photo print on A4 took 25 seconds in Fine mode.

Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn - Print Quality and Costs

The quality of the print is fine, with sharp, black text and generally bright, solid graphics colours, though slightly dull colours in photos. Yellows didn’t produce sparkling results and there was some haloing of black text over orange, through imperfect registration. For general office use, though, colour print is adequate.

The only consumable cost is the toner cartridges, which are available in a single yield of 3,500 black pages and 2,800 for each of the colours. Using the cheapest online prices we could find gives page costs of 2.2p for mono and 10.3p for colour.

These are low, up to 1p per sheet off the mono cost and 2p per sheet for colour compared with its rivals. Over the lifetime of the printer, this represents a considerable saving.

Should I buy a Kyocera ECOSYS P6021cdn?

The ideal place for this printer is an expanding small business or workgroup. It can handle a fair throughput as supplied, but can also be expanded with extra trays, wireless adapter and even SSDs or HDs for file or job storage.

There are other choices, though, like the HP LaserJet Pro 200 Color M251nw. This is a cheaper, slower, SOHO machine, but it does include wireless support.


Kyocera’s ECOSYS P6021cdn is as solid, useful laser printer for anybody running a busy office. It’s fast enough to cope with a good workflow and can duplex as standard. It’s cheap to run and print quality is good, though colours aren’t as bright as from some rivals. It would benefit from having wireless connection, too.
