Ricoh Aficio SP311DN black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Hi, today we are reviewing the Ricoh Aficio SP311DN printer. A black and white Office printer from Ricoh.
Before procuring any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The Aficio SP311DN is a black and white laser office printer from Ricoh. It produces high quality black and white output. It performs well providing quality prints with decent speeds and lots of useful features
It's a durable device, intended for low volume workloads in a home office or a small office environment. In our opinion it is best suited for small offices with very light printing needs,
As this is a single-function printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.
The Ricoh Aficio SP311DN features a touch screen panel for printing and adjusting settings with ease and performing other useful tasks.
The Aficio SP311DN has good mono output, with a print resolution of 600 x 600 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.
Offering A4 print speeds of up to 28 pages per minute, this printer is excellent for everyday printing. Although it will struggle to complete medium-large print jobs in a reasonable timeframe. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 8 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
Extra print features for this device include: Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
The Aficio SP311DN comes ready to connect to a computer network. This allows it to be shared and utilised by multiple people on the same network. This printer comes with an ethernet port as standard.
This printer can communicate over TCP-IP and IPP

When shopping for a printer, you should keep the star rating in mind and compare it to the prices being offered - low rated printers, at cheap prices can be the perfect choice.
