The Ricoh Aficio SP C252 color laser printer can output up to 21 pages per minute in both color and monochrome, and has an expandable paper capacity to handle offices both large and small. Its 2400x600 dpi resolution means very sharp print quality, and it includes both wired and wireless networking options. The high cost of Ricoh SP C252 printer toner is its main downside, but the cost per page is decent.
The SP C252 comes in two variations so that users can prioritize the features they need most. The SP C252DN is the basic printer model with duplexing and networking capabilities. The SP C252SF adds scanning and faxing, making it a multifunction device. The base model includes an ethernet port for wired network sharing, and Wi-Fi support as well. A USB port is included for personal use.
Not only is the maximum print speed fast, but a first page out time of 14 seconds ensures a quick response to new tasks. The warm-up time of 30 seconds or less also means users can easily save power by shutting down the device when not in use. The Economy Color Mode helps save on Aficio SP C252 toner replacements by reducing the amount of toner used by up to 50%.
Replacing all four toners is a serious hit on the budget, and Ricoh SP C252 toner cartridges tend to be more expensive than those of competing models. Each color supply can yield around 6,000 pages, while the black Aficio SP C252 toner cartridge is rated for 6,500 pages.
While not as fast as some models in its class, the high-quality output of the Ricoh SP C252 would still make it a worthy contender. Unfortunately, its high price and expensive Ricoh SP C252 toner supplies make it difficult to recommend in light of better options.
