An all-in-one office workflow solution

Want to transform your everyday workflows? Choose the RICOH MP 2501SP Black and White Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP) for fast, straightforward and affordable multifunction performance from a single device. Its powerful processing engine makes light work of monochrome printing, copying and even full-color scanning.

Fast forward your productivity

Stay ahead of the curve with this reliable and compact multifunction printer-scanner-copier. Produce high-quality output at up to 25 pages per minute and incorporate papers sizes up to 11" x 17" to expand your document creation capabilities.

Stay flexible with wireless printer options

Why not go wireless? Use the optional IEEE 802.11a/g so the MP 2501SP multifunction printer can be networked wirelessly without the need for an Ethernet cable or a physical network connection. Eliminate expensive installations and enable workgroups to conveniently place the MFP where it works best. Plus, meet the evolving demands of today's on-the-go workforce using the Ricoh Smart Device Connector app, and print directly from your smart device to the MFP.

Direct your workflow

The MP 2501SP offers innovative solutions that improve workflows by enhancing the user experience and increasing productivity. The optional bypass tray features adjustable guides to accommodate a variety of paper sizes, envelopes and weights up to 90-lb. Index. Optional paper banks expand standard paper capacity up to 1,600 sheets for longer runs of high-quality output day in and day out.

Maximize your time and efforts

Configure your unique preferences to minimize time spent navigating between jobs. Take advantage of the easy-to-view, tilting 4.3" color control panel with a customizable home screen and icons for personalized, one-step shortcuts to common tasks. Plus, save time and reduce paper use when you copy both sides of an ID card (or other small document) onto a single sheet of paper — in one easy step.

Data security features keep your information safe

Help protect what's important. The DataOverwriteSecuritySystem deletes any latent images left behind on the internal HDD, and offers enhanced data encryption. The Locked Print feature keeps documents stored until an authorized user releases them, and Unauthorized Copy Control prevents the malevolent duplication of sensitive documents. The optional 250GB HDD makes it easy to employ authentication protocols to help protect documents and limit system privileges.

Additionally, an embedded Eco-Friendly Indicator Screen displays your team's eco-stats to encourage positive print habits, and our consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.

Just installed the drivers for our MP 2501SP on a MAC running 10.12, when I print a document, the printer "warms up" but prints nothing. I have seen some videos discussing a need for postscript unit 3 3m SSD card to be installed. Is this correct?
