Ricoh Aficio SP311DNw black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Todays review is of the Ricoh Aficio SP311DNw printer. A black and white Office printer from Ricoh.
Before acquiring any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The Aficio SP311DNw is a black and white laser device from Ricoh, offering excellent black and white output. It performs well providing quality print output with decent speeds .
As this is a print-only 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 SP311DNw sports a touch screen panel user interface and performing other useful tasks.
The Aficio SP311DNw provides acceptable mono printing, that's more than good enough for business uses, 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 SP311DNw is a network capable printer. 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
