Though it inherits some of its output quality and speed from larger models, the Ricoh Aficio SP 6330 is compact, designed for small office spaces. This single-function laser printer specializes in printing up to 35 pages per minute at high quality, though costs for Ricoh SP 6330 printer toner supplies will be somewhat high.
The standard configuration includes a 500-sheet input tray and a 100-sheet bypass tray, and includes an ethernet port for networking, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the SP 6330N model. A USB port is included for personal use as well. Those who need more paper capacity can add one or two 500-sheet trays to expand its capabilities.
The machine includes security features that are useful in a sensitive environment, such as the Locked Print function. This requires users to enter a PIN code before a file will begin printing, keeping it safe from prying eyes. With the @Remote Intelligent Management System, managers can monitor multiple devices at once, auditing and tracking usage as well as watching paper and Aficio SP 6330 toner levels.
With resolution choices from 300 dpi to 1200 dpi, users can prioritize speed or quality, as well as reducing the amount of Ricoh SP 6330 toner used for each page. The first page will begin printing in around 6.8 seconds, and the warm-up time is around 19 seconds.
One of the bigger drawbacks of ownership is the high cost of toners. The single black Ricoh SP 6330 toner cartridge has a large estimated yield of 20,000 pages, which helps keep the cost per page reasonable. Unfortunately, Aficio SP 6330 toner cartridges tend to be quite a bit more expensive than those of competing models.
While the compact design and fairly quick speeds of the SP 6330 are generally appealing, its high purchase price and expensive supplies are disappointing. For small office users who value upgradability, however, it could still be a good choice.
