Control everything from your desktop

Bring the versatility of copying, scanning and faxing capabilities to the desktop. The RICOH SP C250SF Color Laser Multifunction Printer (MFP) can share documents quickly and economically with Scan-to-Email/Folder/URL/FTP and fax features. 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.

Make a colorful splash

See your ideas come to life in incredible color and clarity. 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. Enjoy IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN connectivity, and connect your printer without cables, complex setup procedures or physical limitations. Download the RICOH Smart Device Print&Scan app, and transform your smartphone or tablet into a mobile workstation that you can scan to and print from. Plus, scan documents to a USB device via a front-facing port.

Handle more media

Limited space doesn't mean limited output. Enjoy longer, uninterrupted print runs with a 750-sheet paper capacity (when configured with the optional paper-feed unit). Produce a wide range of documents, with paper stocks up to 8.5" x 14" when you draw from the standard and bypass trays. Plus, you can produce a single-page job - without disrupting paper stocks in your other trays - using the convenient one-page bypass tray.

Make easy management the norm

Simplify your day-to-day workload. Complete a wide range of tasks with single-touch shortcuts directly from the intuitive control panel LCD screen. Check the onboard supply status and make print-job adjustments right from the device. Also, use Web Image Monitor to remotely perform tasks via a standard web browser. Plus, easily change the top-loading All-In-One (AIO) Print Cartridges in moments - without special training.

Excel with eco-minded features

Be both business-minded and eco-minded. The SP C250SF is ENERGY STAR® certified, and is rated with an extremely low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value* as determined by ENERGY STAR program testing requirements. You can also help save paper with features like Auto Duplex, and conserve energy using the Energy Saver Timer and Eco Night Sensor features. In addition, Ricoh's consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle. * Based on Energy Star Test Method for Determining Imaging Equipment Energy Use, effective January 1, 2014

is there an option to scan to pdf instead of jpeg, tiff or bitmap?
Saratoga on May 19, 2016

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).

Janett L on Aug 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Please refer to the Operating Instructions guide http://support.ricoh.com/bb_v1oi/pub_e/oi/0001051/0001051909/VM2048611/M2048611.pdf
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.
