With copying as its standard function, the Ricoh MP 2553 laser copier does an excellent job, with solid speeds of around 25 pages per minute. Users can also have it equipped with optional scanning, printing, and faxing to bolster its feature set, however. Mobile printing makes it easier to integrate into a variety of workflows, and low costs for Ricoh MP 2553 printer toner help to keep it under budget.
In addition to the base model, the MP 2553sp model adds scanning and printing capabilities, including network printing via ethernet port. Wireless networking is an upgrade option, which may appeal to buyers who want more freedom in the unit's placement. Both networking options integrate well with the mobile printing features, including the Ricoh HotSpot software that allows for printing from smartphones and tablets without special apps on the device.
The unit's 100-sheet automatic reversing document feeder is a productivity dream, able to scan up to 79 images per minute when scanning stacks of documents unattended. This plays nicely into the machine's digital workflows, letting users send scanned documents via email, save them to a network folder, and more. The result is less paper and Ricoh MP 2553 toner being used on a daily basis, reducing the office budget.
Of course, the cost of toners is still a concern with any device, but Ricoh MP 2553 toner cartridges are some of the most affordable in its class of multifunction machines. With the added benefit of a large capacity (11,000 pages), replacement Ricoh MP 2553 toner cartridges won't be needed too frequently, even in busy environments.
The biggest perceived downside to the MP 2553 is likely to be its output speeds, but it has a lot to offer for buyers who can overlook this aspect. Its upgrade options provide flexibility, and its digital scanning workflows can trim a lot of cost off the budget.
