For the medium-sized office or workgroup, the Ricoh Aficio MP 2851 multifunction printer could be an affordable choice. Its upfront price tag is reasonable, Aficio MP 2851 printer toner is very affordable, and print speeds of up to 28 pages per minute should be a good fit for moderate volumes. Extras like duplexing and mobile printing add a lot of value as well.
For a machine with so much to offer, the MP 2851 isn't particularly bulky. Its footprint measures 24.8x25.7 inches, with a height of 27.9 inches.

The standard paper capacity includes two 500-sheet trays and a 100-sheet bypass tray that can accept alternate media types without the need to clear a main tray. Upgrades are available to boost the total capacity to a maximum of 3,100 sheets for offices that have expanded their output.
The HotSpot Enabled feature provides multiple methods for sending print jobs from almost any web-connected device, including smartphones, tablets, and even computers outside of the network. The full-color touch panel display makes operating the machine intuitive, and duplexing is available for making two-sided prints that help reduce paper usage.
