Meet the low-cost MFP that fits your small business needs

The best laser multifunction printer (MFP) for your startup or small workgroup should enhance collaboration, raise productivity and offer a low total cost of ownership (TCO). Introducing the RICOH SP C261SFNw Color Laser MFP — a powerful, yet compact MFP designed for personal users or workgroups of up to three people. You'll save time by printing up to 21 pages per minute (ppm), and capture and share information efficiently with copy, scan and fax capabilities.

Communicate effectively with scan and fax capabilities

Stay productive and improve collaboration by optimizing your ability to share information. Scan documents directly to email and network folders for easy digital access and retrieval. Plus, the single pass document feeder (SPDF) lets you load up to 50 pages at a time for uninterrupted scanning at up to 40 images per minute (ipm)1. You can also send faxes in as quickly as three seconds per page.
1: Maximum speed for scanning black-and-white documents. The maximum scan speed for color documents is 24 ipm.

Speed up tasks and streamline processes

Make navigating print, scan, copy and fax jobs quick and easy with the SP C261SFNw's user-friendly 4.3" color touchscreen panel. You can easily program up to 12 of your favorite settings for instant access to your most common tasks. Plus, load up to three different paper sizes and increase paper capacity to 751 sheets with an optional paper tray for more efficiency.

Make an impact with high-quality printing

With up to 2400 x 600 dpi resolution, you can get vivid color and crisp black text. Plus, you can speed through jobs by printing up to 21 ppm at maximum resolution. The standard and bypass paper trays support a variety of media — you can even use up to 43-lb. Bond/ 90- lb. Index paper to add another level of quality when presenting your ideas.

Easily connect to your smartphone or tablet

For added convenience, print from your smartphone, tablet or laptop with AirPrint®, Mopria™2, Wi-Fi Direct or RICOH Smart Device Connector. Enjoy additional options with Ricoh Smart Device Connector — such as printing from your Android phone with the MFP’s Near Field Communication (NFC) tag that let's you tap your smart device to the tag for quick and easy printing.
2: Smart devices must be on the same network as your MFP.

Help keep proprietary information safe

With Locked Print, you can require users to authenticate print jobs by entering passcodes at the MFP — fewer documents are left unattended with Locked Print, helping to safeguard your intellectual property, confidential paperwork and other information assets. The SP C261SFNw also helps you protect data with network security, encrypted communication and wireless LAN security.

BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The instructions for how to setup scan to folder (SMB scanning) can be found at the following link to the explanatory entry within our customer knowledgebase. There is an issue currently that will prevent scanning from succeeding unless some settings are made on the Mac - Signing Required will need to be disabled OR the Mac will need to be set to use SMBv1. Your IT person/department should be consulted before these changes are made since they have security ramifications.

Does the ADF along with the scanner software allow for multiple documents scanned to the same file? For example, if I have a 150 page documents and I put 40 pages on the ADF will it pause and ask if I want to scan more pages or will it just end and close the file? On our current unit this feature is called "continuous scan". Thank you in advance.

Three questions. What is the grayscale scanning speed in single and duplex on the ADF? Does this properly handle envelope printing? What software does this come with (any OCR or page management software?
David C on Nov 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

Here are the answers to your questions.

What is the grayscale scanning speed in single and duplex on the ADF? The ADF Throughput for this model scans in B&W (using 300 X 600 dpi) at 20 images per minute and Full Color (using 300 X 600 dpi) at 12 images per minute. There is no specific specification listed for grayscale but those listed specifications give you a range within which it would fall. Page 415 of the user guide at the following link contains this information - http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi/0001070/0001070456/VM0AX86xx_06/M0AX8604B.pdf

Does this properly handle envelope printing? Yes, this model performs envelope printing. See page 54 specifically for instruction on loading envelopes. You can also search on the term "envelope" to see the other manual entries about using envelopes -
http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi/0001070/0001070456/VM0AX86xx_06/M0AX8604B.pdf

What software does this come with (any OCR or page management software? Among the utilities included in the download for this machine is a scanning application but that application does not have OCR capability. However, if you have a version of Microsoft Word that has the Document Imaging function, you can use that as the scanning application that communicates/captures through this machine's scanner driver. Microsoft Document Imaging's scan function will perform OCR. Alternately, Adobe Professional or some similar professional-level PDF-creating application with OCR capability would have to be used.

Scan to Email Doesn't Support Required Security
I (as many others reviewing on here) purchased this printer as it listed "scan to email" as a feature. As it doesn't support TLS or SSL, this essentially doesn't work with any email providers. You may be able to sign up for a provider for $10 a month...but who wants to do that.

This is not hardware related and Ricoh should just update the firmware/ software to support modern day technological requirements. This is not even an old model!

Hello, We are sorry to hear that you are not pleased this model. The SP C261SFNw is an entry level affordable MFP device and unfortunately does not support this functionality. Thank you

Great printer for home office
For the price on sale, no one should complain about this quiet performer. Not only does it support Cloud printing, but also fully duplex scan & printing!

Print quality of texts is superb, even photographs at 600x600dpi default quality is already very good.

First print out speed is actually on par with any other color printer in this price range. If you are doing a lot of printing, change default energy saving mode 2 to energy saving mode 1 so the machine warms up faster. Or put machine into energy saving mode after 10 or 30 min. But even in energy saving mode 2, first color page comes out in less than 45 seconds.

No comment on the scan to email feature as I usually just scan to PDF on my PC and then sync to cloud.

The replacement tonner is also fairly affordable.

Setup is super simple and easy as well. Overall a great upgrade to a B&W all in one laser printer!

Good but Toner is Grossly Expensive
Good printer AIO functions for a home office. Pricing decent but you will lost that back as the toner is grossly expensive.

Hello, Thank you for choosing the Ricoh SP C261SFNw
The SP C261SFNw is an entry level affordable MFP device that offers low operating costs without sacrificing image quality or functionality and ideal for the low volume home user. When comparing the toner costs with other competitive devices. Supply costs for the SP C261SFNw are in a similar price range as other competitive devices currently available on the market.

Great quality and easy setup
Perfect printer for a small home office. We managed to setup the printer easily, and it works with Windows and Linux machines. Not a 5 star review because it is kind of slow to start the jobs, not a deal breaker for us.

Scan to Email doesn't support modern security.
Printer, Copy and other features work great. However, one of the most commonly used features, scan to email, does not support ssl or tls. This is required by 99% of email providers now. This essentially means that you can't use scan to email.

Best printer for the money
Three minutes to unpack; one minute to install latest drivers from Ricoh. Working flawlessly on my dual boot computer in both Vista and 10. Color prints near photo quality on Color Copy Gloss paper. Speedier print than my still connected fifteen year old -- ----. Large print tray, flat bed scanner, awesome auto feed! Touch screen and near field communication added bonus. Ricoh customer service top of class. Cartridges on ----will drastically lower listed price per page cost. Buy this printer. You will not regret it.

Solid Machine
If you want a solid, reliable machine with excellent print quality for a small business or office, then this is an easy choice. The price is right and the replacement toner cartridges are affordable.

If you're looking for a machine to support a larger office with tons of advanced features, better speed, etc., then I respectfully suggest you pay a lot more for another machine.

Using the cliche, "You get what you pay for," I will tell you that YOU GET MORE THAN YOU PAY FOR with this machine. Don't hesitate to purchase it.

Terrible instructions for Mac OS X or AirPrint
There are no instructions for Mac. The manual mentions you should refer to the manual on the CD-ROM or website, but there is only the same manual with exact same reference to refer to the manual. Stupid.

There are .pkg files in the Mac OS folder. Opening them automatically installs some files. I also downloaded the latest version from the Ricoh website. But, there are no further instructions when trying to connect to the printer. On the Ricoh C261SFNW, I selected Network Setting > IP then entered the IP address on the Mac after selecting System Preferences > Printers & Scanners > "+". At the bottom, I was able to select the software for Ricoh SP C261SFNw PS. It gave the error: "Unable to verify the printer on your network." I then changed the protocol from Internet Printing Protocol - IP to AirPrint. Again, it gave the same error.

Using any of the Windows set up methods, of course, does not work. There are two terrible YouTube videos with no audio and plenty of comments below saying it does not work. Terribly frustrating.

Quality prints, but very slow and poor documentation
After using this machine for two months, I have discovered the following: print quality - very good; printing speed - slow; print speed when duplexing - very slow; finding replacement cartridges - nearly impossible, as the manual does NOT indicate the cartridge numbers to order.
