Ricoh 3320 Printer Review
Small businesses sometimes require heavy-duty faxing, and the Ricoh Fax 3320 can handle it without too much bulk. This compact multifunction laser device can also copy and print at up to 15 pages per minute, and uses affordable Ricoh 3320 printer toner to keep operating costs low.
The 3320 is also referred to as the 3320L, and its compact design is one of its best features. It measures just 16.3 inches high, with a footprint of 17.6x19.5 inches. It is a bit heavy, however, weighing 40.8 pounds with the Fax 3320 toner supply installed.
The control panel is surprisingly detailed for such a compact device, including a full number keypad, and several buttons for fast one-touch dialing when faxing. A two-line LCD screen is included, which could be a little difficult to read for some users, but it generally gets the job done, including error code alerts and notifications when the paper or Ricoh 3320 toner are running low.
The faxing features of the 3320 are robust, with a 33.6 Kbps transmission speed and a 50-sheet automatic document feeder for faster scanning of multi-page documents. It includes 8 MB of fax memory, along with a 12-hour battery backup, so it can save incoming documents when the paper supply runs out or the power goes out.
With affordable replacement toners, users can save on supplies. Each Ricoh 3320 toner cartridge has a yield of around 6,000 pages. The high-yield combined with a low price for Fax 3320 toner cartridges, this amounts to a low cost per page, making it much more affordable than the average inkjet equivalent.
The 3320 is an excellent choice for the small office that needs a dedicated fax machine. Best of all, it can also copy and print, so users will get even more value from this single device.
