The Ricoh Aficio SP C231 is a color laser printer made for home or small offices with mid-volume printing needs. With the ability to print a decent amount monthly, it should fit user's needs well. It weighs around 50.7 pounds, which for some may be a little too heavy to move around when needed. It connects via ethernet and USB, and wireless printing is supported and can be added as an additional feature at anytime. Unix, Mac, Novell and Windows operating systems are all compatible with this laser machine, and the Ricoh SP C231 toner cartridges are easy to find and simple to install.
Inside, four Aficio SP C231 toner cartridges are needed, due to its color printing capabilities. These toners come in black, cyan, yellow and magenta, and this printer toner can last about 2,500 pages, which makes the cost per page pretty low. The Ricoh SP C231 toner can actually produce resolutions as high as 2400x600 dpi, which will leave you with high quality, professional documents every print.
Envelopes, color paper, bond paper, recycled paper, label, pre-punched paper and transparencies can be printed on exceptionally using the Ricoh SP C231 toner. When it comes to speed, the Aficio SP C231 is pretty fast too. Its warm-up time is slow though at 48 seconds. The unit has a page capacity of 251 sheets, which for some won't be enough and could become a burden to replace paper. High capacity toners are available too that will last for 6,500 pages before expiring and needing replaced.
User reviews of the Aficio SP C231 tend to be positive. Consumers love how many pages can be printed using the high capacity Aficio SP C231 toner. The manual duplex printing options are praised often, but its speed of only 21 pages per minute tends to be a complaint for some.
