The Aficio SP C431DN Network Color Laser Printer from Ricoh is an excellent choice for the small to medium work group. High-resolution documents, super-fast output speed, and enough memory to keep tasks moving efficiently is only the beginning when it comes to the C431DN.

The printer's 650 sheet standard paper capacity can be expanded up to 2,300 sheets using optional paper trays. That means that everyone can keep working with fewer interruptions. After a 50 second warm-up time the C431DN is ready to go all day with just 10 seconds to the first color print, and 15 seconds for the first B/W print. Once it's printing the SP C431DN outputs both color and B/W at 42 ppm.

When it comes to keeping things moving along, the 600MHz CPU and impressive 768MB RAM memory keep the prints flowing. The 80GB disk drive provides more working memory and optional security features like locked print, stored print, and hold print can be enabled.

The C431DN can adjust to media up to 8.5 x 14" and the printer supports stock up to 140 lb (index). Duplex printing can be supported up to 90 lb (index). Color documents will benefit from advanced color calibration, ink simulation, and PANTONE color matching support. And no matter color or B/W, the 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution produces stunning documents that are just what the high-caliber professional demands.

      Comments about Ricoh Aficio SP C431DN Network Color Laser Printer:

      I researched a lot of printers before deciding to purchase the Ricoh. The quality and reliability of this printer is fantastic.

      This printer has great color - the Pantone matching is great! It can handle thick cover stock or regular text weight paper with no problem.

      I've been very pleased with my purchase - if you're considering a new color laser printer, this should definitely be a contender.
