The Ricoh Aficio C3000 is a multifunction color laser printer designed for high-volume medium and large office environments. Its many security features and advanced document handling make it an appealing choice for offices with many networked users. For lower-volume offices, units featuring low-capacity Brother TN115M toner would probably be a more economical choice.
The multifunction features of the C3000 include printing, copying, scanning, and faxing. As with any multifunction device worth its salt, copying and faxing can be done standalone, without the need for any computer connection. In fact, scanning can be done with only an internet connection, as it includes options to scan to email or a web server, as well as scanning to connected computers on the network.
Print speeds are quite fast, at 30 pages per minute, but what is most impressive is that color and monochrome prints both print at the same speed. 30 pages per minute for color prints is quite fast, indeed, and a remarkable achievement. These speeds do not come with any sacrifice in quality, either, as print quality is very good in both monochrome and color. Other models, such as HP printers that have HP C9732A toner have a hard time competing.
The Ricoh C3000 includes a built in Document Server, which allows users to store documents for later printing and faxing, and even allows these documents to be shared among the network of users, or only specific users, if necessary. In fact, the C3000 has a number of security features that block access to certain functions for specific users, and it also supports hard drive overwrite, for ensuring stored data is completely erased and unrecoverable, a necessity for office where sensitive documents are used.
The Ricoh C3000 also has the features one would expect from a top-notch copier and printer, including a large paper capacity of up to 3,200 sheets, toner capacities of 15,000 pages per cartridge, which towers over the competition, such as HP Q5951A toner, and the C3000 has a wide array of finishing options for creating booklets and other media easily and quickly.
Overall, the Ricoh Aficio C3000 is an impressive multifunction with the muscle to handle a large office of networked users. Fast color printing speeds and many finishing options make it a great choice for creative projects.
