Enhance your workflow using the 35-sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to quickly and dependably scan original documents up to 8.5" x 14".

Enjoy quick, dependable results

You'll appreciate the sleek and compact design, but you won't wait long for your documents. Expect crisp black-and-white and vivid color output at 21 pages per minute (ppm), with first prints available in just 14 seconds. Save time using standard automatic duplexing to print two-sided documents, so you can reduce paper use and lessen your overall operating costs.

Create high-quality documents with crisp lines and vivid colors with true 600 x 600 dpi, and up to 2400 x 600 dpi equivalent resolution without a drop in output speed. The SP C250SF also offers TWAIN/WIA scanning, so you can capture and share brilliant, full-color documents at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi optical resolution, and up to 19200 x 19200 dpi driver resolution in moments.

Wire-less is more

The compact design and wireless networking functions make the SP C250SF ideal for smaller workspaces.

toner doesn't fit
toner
the replacement toner doesn't fit - sp c250A. Why not?
Lake H on Jun 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The SP C250SA toner is appropriate for the SP C250SF. Based upon the info you provided it is not possible to determine why is doesn't seem to fit.
Will this printer scan both sides automatically using the ADF?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You can scan on two sides with the SP C250SF, but it requires users to manually flip the paper once the first side has been scanned (so not automatic).

However, our multi-function printers (MFPs) come equipped with standard automatic double-sided scanning. To learn more about your options, please contact your Ricoh representative or local Ricoh dealer (http://dealer.Ricoh-USA.com).

What is the difference between this printer and the SP C252SF? Is the cartridge size the only thing?
Nickkk on Jun 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The major difference is the cost to purchase the printer and the cost per print (of supplies). For those who print little, the SP C250SF is a better deal, for those who print much, the SP C252SF is a better deal. The SP C250SF has a very competitive CPP, but the SP C252SF is one of the lowest available at 8.9 cents per color print and 1.8 cents for black. Of course, these prices are simply the SRP of the supplies divided by their declared yield using ISO/IEC19796. Actual results will vary, but almost all manufacturers use the same ISO/IEC standard for declared yield, so results can be compared.
