With the Ricoh Aficio MP C305 copier, even smaller offices can get into color laser copying and printing. Its base model is fairly affordable, but still outputs up to 31 pages per minute, and this applies to both color and monochrome pages. Its maximum paper capacity isn't as large as some competing models, but low-cost Aficio MP C305 printer toner supplies could really save office managers a lot of money over time.
Along with its printing and copying features, the MP C305 can also handle faxing at Super G3 transmission speeds. The included scanning function might be the most robust of the bunch, however, giving users the option to send documents via email or save them to a folder on the office network, all right from the unit's touchscreen control panel.
Speaking of the control panel, this 4.3-inch touchscreen-enabled display features large icons and an intuitive interface to help users find the options they need quickly, and it can be customized to save favorite workflows for quicker recall. It also provides an easy way to keep tabs on the paper supply and remaining levels of Ricoh MP C305 toner.
The unit's smaller paper capacity could be a concern for some buyers, however. It starts with a standard capacity of 350 sheets that will be perfect for many small offices, but can only be upgraded to a maximum of 1,350 sheets overall, which could be limiting for larger offices.
Even though it is a more compact and affordable model, replacement toners still come with fairly large page yields. Each of the color Ricoh MP C305 toner cartridges can provide around 4,000 pages, while the black supply lasts for up to 12,000 pages. If buyers want to trim costs even more, they can opt for compatible Ricoh MP C305 toner instead of name-brand supplies.
The Ricoh MP C305 should fill a niche for the smaller office that still needs speed and efficiency without the high cost of larger devices. It offers solid performance at a bargain price, and has enough upgradeability for some future growth as well.
