General Features

  • Maintain high productivity for every job. Deliver up to 25 pages-per-minute for full-color and black & white documents, from daily correspondence and Web pages to financial reports, customer presentations and proposals.
  • Conserve energy and save money at the same time. Return these devices to a ready condition quickly with a warm-up time of 25 seconds and a first copy of 6.5 seconds for black & white and only 9.5 for full-color.
  • Print critical documents in color while saving paper and filing space. Both systems can deliver two-sided documents at nearly 100% of simplex speed.
  • Reduce costs and enhance your company's image. This four-in-one MFP offers color output that is less expensive than inkjet—so you can cost-effectively create professional documents that impress your most important customers.
  • Keep outsourcing costs down—and confidential documents in-house. With your own color device, you get the color you want without relying on expensive outside vendors.
  • Expect superior uptime and reliability from a MFP design that incorporates proven technology for document feeding, scanning and paper handling.
  • Save space with a compact design that lets you choose the configuration that is right for you. You can even add finishing capabilities—with a minimal increase to the system’s original footprint.
  • Navigate through any job easily with the 8.5" full-color W-VGA display. Users can preview stored documents for accuracy prior to output or view animated graphics for operational assistance.
  • Enjoy a user-friendly design with overhand/underhand grips on paper trays and simple toner replacement.
  • Print your jobs faster and easier with a 533 MHz processor and up to 1GB RAM.
  • For powerful print performance, these systems offer the innovative, icon-driven Ricoh Refined Print Command Stream (RPCS) driver, as well as PCL5c/6, XPS and optional genuine Adobe® PostScript®3™ drivers.
  • Captivate your customers with vivid color and black & white documents that feature crisp resolution up to a maximum of 1200 dpi.
  • Accommodate offices with a variety of networking needs. The systems integrate seamlessly in Windows, Macintosh, UNIX or AS/400 environments with standard 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet and USB 2.0 interfaces, as well as optional Gigabit Ethernet and wireless connectivity.
