Add color to your workflow with wireless convenience
You can’t always predict where your workday will take you. But you can be prepared for anything. The
RICOH SP C250DN/SP C250SF offers high-quality laser printing for small offices and workgroups; choose the
SP C250SF for copying, scanning and faxing capabilities for a wider range of everyday office tasks. The Ricoh
SP C250DN and SP C250SF help you get the information you need, when you need it. Concerned about
space? They’re compact and offer wireless networking to fit in small workspaces — including desktops, retail
counters and executive offices.
Choose where you want to work
Is your smartphone or tablet nearby? Use it as your mobile workstation
for completing office tasks. Simply download the Ricoh Smart Device
Print&Scan app to print directly from your personal mobile device. The Ricoh
SP C250DN/SP C250SF offers IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN connectivity
so you can install it without cables, complex setup procedures or physical
limitations. Plus, you can take advantage of a conveniently located USB port
on the device to share documents with a wide range of scan-to options
(SP C250SF); and print images stored on digital cameras without a computer.
Streamline how you work
Move from one project to the next quickly. You won’t have to spend hours
trying to figure out how to install these devices, thanks to easy set up and
standard device interfaces. You also won’t have to wait long for your files
to print. Black-and-white and color pages print at 21 pages per minute, and
first prints are available in only 14 seconds. With the Ricoh SP C250SF, you
can even print two-sided documents — such as identification cards and
insurance forms — onto a single side of a sheet of paper to save paper as
well as time.
Make a lasting impression with vivid
color output
Produce presentations, flyers, reports, images and more with incredible
color and clarity that is both dynamic and compelling. You can adjust the
quality of your print output to fit target audience expectations by choosing
between true 600 x 600 dpi and multiple higher resolutions up to 2,400
x 600 dpi. Need to send professional-looking documents to a customer
immediately? The Ricoh SP C250SF offers TWAIN/WIA scanning, so you
can share brilliant, full-color documents at up to 1,200 x 1,200 dpi optical
resolution and up to 19,200 x 19,200 dpi driver resolution in moments.
Efficiency, convenience and affordability in
a compact design
Productive multifunction performance
Manage every project with ease by bringing color printing, copying, scanning
and faxing to the desktop. Choose the Ricoh SP C250SF and send a wide
range of documents to customers and colleagues quickly and economically
via scan-to-email, folder, FTP and more. You can send hardcopy
documents in as few as three seconds using standard 33.6 Kbps faxing.
Use the 35-Sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) to process original
documents up to 8.5" x 14" and avoid time-consuming manual feeds.
Low total cost of ownership
Reducing your total cost of ownership is important. In order to reduce
costs, you want low hardware costs combined with affordable cost per
page. The Ricoh SP C250DN/SP C250SF delivers both — and goes even
further to deliver the value you require. You’ll also be able to use less
toner and save significantly on print supplies when you print high-quality
text and draft-quality images in Economy Color Mode. Reduce paper
costs with standard duplex printing. Plus, for added convenience, the
SP C250DN and SP C250SF share the same consumable supplies. You’ll
also use less energy because both devices are ENERGY STAR certified
with a low typical electricity consumption (TEC) value.
Diverse media handling options
Your resources may be limited, but your print output doesn’t have to be.
You can print longer, uninterrupted runs because the Ricoh SP C250DN/
SP C250SF stores up to 751 sheets when the optional Paper Feed Unit
is added beneath the device. Produce a wide range of documents with
paper stocks up to 8.5" x 14" from the standard and bypass trays. Or,
run special single-page jobs without disrupting paper stocks in other
trays when you use the convenient 1-page bypass tray.
Incredible ease of use and convenience
Simplify your workload with unmatched convenience that builds on
Ricoh’s legacy of affordable, timesaving innovations for the workplace.
Complete a wide range of tasks with a single touch using the intuitive
control panel with LCD screen. Check supply status and make corrections
directly at the device. Use Web Image Monitor to perform many of the
same tasks remotely. You can also change the top-loading, all-in-one print
cartridges in moments without help — and without a mess.
