The Ricoh Aficio GX3000 is a color inkjet printer designed for the small office environment that doesn't require a large laser model, but values high-quality color output in a device that is compact and affordable. Print speeds are fast, at up to 29 pages per minute in both color and monochrome, and printer ink costs are very low, thanks to the affordable price of Ricoh GX3000 ink. Multiple models are available, with the GX3000S adding extra paper capacity, the GX3000SF adding faxing capabilities, and the GX3000SFN adding networking support.
The design of the GX3000 is quite compact, though not as small as some home models. It measures 16.3 inches by 16.4 inches by 19.3 inches, and weighs only 30.9 pounds. This makes it an ideal fit for tighter spaces in a home or office. The unit connects via USB, or directly to a network in the GX3000SFN model, which allows for sharing among multiple users. It has a first page out time of around 8.5 seconds for a fast response that eliminates waiting.
When it comes to printer ink, inkjet models can often be expensive, but Ricoh GX3000 ink cartridges are some of the most affordable in its class. The Aficio GX3000 ink cartridges are divided into 4 colors to help reduce waste, and users can save even more by opting to use compatible Aficio GX3000 ink instead of OEM versions.
In their review of the GX3000, PC Pro praised the low cost of Ricoh GX3000 ink, and liked some extras such as automatic duplexing. They found its output quality to be somewhat disappointing, however, and found it did not meet the rated speeds.
Overall, the Ricoh GX3000 is a good choice for the small office, particularly with its budget-conscious running costs. Its speeds are solid and its compact design is easy to manage.
