Ricoh SP3600DN black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
We will go over some of the important details in this review and offer some comparisons to other printers on the market..
Before purchasing any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The SP3600DN is a black and white laser printer from Ricoh. It produces black and white output. It is a good performer providing quality print output with good speeds .
It's a solid printer, targeted at low volume workloads in a home office or a small office environment. We think the SP3600DN is best suited for small offices with very light printing needs,
With print speeds of up to thirty pages per minute (when printing text on plain office paper) and the ability to print on pages up to A4 in size , this printer is perfectly suited for many workloads.
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 SP3600DN features a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The SP3600DN provides good mono printing, that's more than suitable for general 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 30 pages per minute, this printer is excellent for everyday printing. Although it will struggle to complete medium-large print jobs in a reasonable timeframe. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 6.5 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
Extra print features for this device include: Barcodes, Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
The SP3600DN 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

We review all printers in comparison with each other - meaning that 1 star indicates that a printer is in the bottom 20% for that attribute or function. 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. Conversely, when thinking of purchasing an expensive printer - ensure that it is highly rated, or it is simply not worth paying extra for.
