Ricoh SPC252dn colour Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Todays review is of the Ricoh SPC252dn printer. A colour Office printer from Ricoh.
We strive to keep a similar arrangement and set of data points between all reviews. This is to give you an idea of the differences between printers on the market.
Before acquiring any printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The SPC252dn is a colour laser device from Ricoh. It produces good quality full colour output. It is a good performer providing quality print output with low speeds and lots of useful features
With black and white print speeds of up to twenty pages per minute, colour print speeds up to twenty pages per minute and the ability to print on pages up to A4 in size , this printer is an economical addition to the workplace.
As this is a standard 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 SPC252dn sports a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The SPC252dn provides acceptable full colour output, 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 20 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 14 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 SPC252dn 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.

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.
