Ricoh Aficio CL3500N Printer

 

The Ricoh Aficio CL3500N has a neat and professional appearance that will look good in any office. At $700 (as of 10/6/2006), this networked color laser has enough features to support a small workgroup. You get a generous 530-sheet main paper tray with...

Good paper handling ; Economical operating costs

Low print quality ; Many parts require maintenance

Existing Ricoh customers who want to add color printing capabilities to their offices will be attracted to the CL3500N. Its print quality is acceptable for many everyday business documents, but users with more demanding requirements should ask for a...

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N

 

The CL3500N offers excellent paper handling and low costs per page, but print quality is lackluster.

Good paper handling, Economical operating costs

Low print quality, Many parts require maintenance

Excellent paper handling is the CL3500N's best feature, but graphics and text print quality was disappointing.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N

 

Are you the impatient type who values speed above all else in a printer? Or are you in a small office or workgroup that has heavy printing needs? If you fall into one of those categories, you're going to love the Ricoh Aficio CL3500N ($700 street).

Fast. Network connector. More than 600-sheet paper capacity standard. Optional duplexer and paper tray

Mixed output quality

The Ricoh Aficio CL3500N has the speed and paper capacity to be a heavy-duty workhorse printer for a busy small office or workgroup.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N laser printer

 

Small offices and workgroups will appreciate that the CL3500N is priced reasonably for what it offers: excellent prints at relatively fast speeds and PostScript 3 compatibility.

PostScript 3 capabilities ; Large paper tray ; Flexible customization options ; Very good photo and graphics prints ; Built-in networking ; Excellent text quality

Reds are a little strong in photo prints

Setting up this printer can be slightly difficult, and I recommend reading all of the instructions before getting started rather than following them step-by-step. The CL3500N weighs 73 pounds, so at least two people are required to unpack it safely....

Ricoh Aficio SP 4100N Mono Laser Printer

 

If you're working in a big office you need a fast printer and that speed doesn't come cheap.

The driver itself includes support for up to 16 pages per sheet, watermarks and user code entry, so only those with valid authority can print to the machine. There's no facility for walk-up printing from a USB stick, though, which is becoming an...

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N

 

I was initially disappointed in the text print quality, and several reviews indicated this was a problem. However, turning on color matching in the printer (or using Colorsync manually with the provided profile) fixed this problem instantly --- both...

Excellent print quality and flexibility. True Postscript implementation means this is a network printer without driver problems. I've had this printer since mid-2007 and I can't say enough good about it. Virtually never jams. Fast, easy, and built like...

Built like a tank, heavy like a tank. I actually think this is a plus up until I have to move it. Duplexer and other ancillaries are hard to find

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Easy to use and very reliable

 

I like the fact we can configure & view them via https & ssh instead of http & telnet though this is a bonus feature and not why we bought them. We print hundreds of PDF's per week and we've never gotten any postscript errors.

The basic toner cartridges are nearly equivalent to the HP "High Yield" variety and much cheaper. The print quality is excellent and unlike the equivalent HP it has a real Adobe Postscript chip in it. If you are sick of getting postscript errors when...

Ricoh Auto Duplex Unit For Aficio CL3500N Printer

 

The part is as described. Simply dropped it into my Ricoh CL3500 and we can now do color duplex (double-sided) printing. Kind of annoying that Ricoh would leave out such a simple piece of plastic so that they can charge you a couple hundred dollars later.
