Ricoh Aficio CL 1000N

 

The Ricoh Aficio CL1000N's price ($700 street) puts it in the "personal" category for color lasers, but you wouldn't know that to look at it. At 15.2 by 18.9 by 16.5 inches (HWD), it's a little large to share a desk with, and at 61 pounds, you might...

Impressively fast performer for a four-pass printer. Good output quality for graphics and photos. Duplexer option available

Text output quality is a little low for a color laser printer. Claimed cost per page is a little high

The Ricoh Aficio CL1000N is strong on speed but mixed on output quality, with a higher claimed cost per page than some other inexpensive color lasers. That makes it worth considering, but may keep it off your short list, depending on your priorities.

Product Specifications

Nowadays office color can be both fast and efficient. Ricoh's Aficio CL1000N color A4 laser printer outruns most printers in its class, with an outstanding 31 pages per minute in black and white and 8 full color pages per minute, it beats most mono laser printers. Thanks to an unequaled warm up time of only 45 seconds, as well as a fast first print both in mono and color and very fast throughput, inkjets are no match. Try printing a PDF on your inkjet or traditional color laser printer, pretty slow! Not so with the Aficio CL1000N. PDF Direct Print sends PDFs directly to the printer's engine and prints them amazingly fast. At the same time, this printer supports advanced quality features. The unit can be easily expanded with additional memory (up to 384 MB) or a HDD. The Aficio CL1000N comes with a remarkable choice of paper handling, connectivity options and separate toner cartridges, reducing overall operating costs to the bare minimum. In short: it is probably the best featured color laser printer in its class! The Aficio CL1000N comes with peace of mind, as the leading office automation manufacturer, Ricoh has built an award winning portfolio of products to back up this claim.
