Features

Printing:

Scanning:

Faxing:

Copying:

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.

Printing

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
