As a scanner, copier, fax machine, and laser printer in a single compact device, the Ricoh Aficio SP 3500SF has a lot going for it. Add in some quick output speeds of up to 30 pages per minute and an affordable purchase price, and you've got a very impressive combination. The cost of Ricoh SP 3500SF printer toner does run a little high, but multiple capacities help users keep the cost per page down overall.
Given the number of features and its output speed, it is almost difficult to believe how compact the SP 3500SF actually is. It measures 17.4x16.5x15.6 inches, and even with the Aficio SP 3500SF toner in place, it still weighs just 38.5 pounds. This makes it an easy fit even for a personal home user, but especially for a small office. With network printing and scanning included, it is easily shared among multiple users as well.
The SP 3500SF boasts a 30-second warm-up time so it can be ready to go quickly, even when powered off during non-use. It also has sharp output quality with a 1200 dpi resolution. The SP 3500SF comes with a 35-sheet automatic document feeder for quick, unattended scanning, though users who do a lot of scanning may want to consider the upgraded SP 3510SF model, which can handle up to 50 sheets at a time.
The cost of toners is often what defines the long-term cost of a laser model, and Ricoh SP 3500SF toner cartridges are a little on the expensive side for such a compact machine. With high-capacity Aficio SP 3500SF toner cartridges offering a yield of around 6,400 pages, however, users can keep the cost per page low.
The SP 3500SF has just about everything a small office could need in a multifunction device, with quick speeds and sharp output to boot. Buyers should factor in the cost of Ricoh SP 3500SF toner, however, to make sure their budget can handle it.
