Ricoh Aficio SP C240SF

 

The Ricoh Aficio SP C240SF color laser MFP prints a lot faster than you'd expect from its rated speed.

Fast. Ample paper capacity for a small office. Duplexer. Ethernet. Standalone fax and copier. Scans to PC over network.

Default installation doesn't install fax driver on PC.

Great for the price

 

The Aficio SP C240 SF is a good deal at $249 for a multi-function color laser. Print quality is not the best I've ever seen from a laser but it is good. Mac software setup info is not very clear and the scanner software that comes with is not worth...

Ricoh Aficio SPC240DN

 

Very cheap! I expect that it will cost me more to replace the toners than the printer cost. My daughter printed a photo and I was very surprised at the quality although I would normally use my inkjet for photo printing.

None. The only problem I had was trying to get the printer to work from my new windows 8 laptop when the printer is connected to my old windows XP desktop, but once I got it set up it worked fine.

Ricoh Aficio SPC240DN

 

Quiet, it does duplex printing, fast printing, well designed, sturdy.

It is a bit big, don't buy this to put on your desk unless you have a massive desk. This is not a bad point, just a suggestion.
