The Ricoh Aficio SP C231N Color Laser Printer is a cost-effective, desktop printing solution for the small work group or home office. The C231N puts out high quality full-color and B/W prints at 21 pages-per-minute with a max resolution of 2400 x 600 dpi.
The C231N also utilizes a 251 sheet standard paper capacity, an expandable 128MB RAM memory, 300MHz processor, and PCL and PostScript emulations to keep the print workflow moving long seamlessly. Paper capacity can be expanded to 751 sheets using optional trays, and the RAM memory can be expanded to 640MB.
High yield, all-in-one print cartridges keep consumable costs low, and provide the user with easy cartridge replacement. Auto color sensing also reduces printing costs by stretching out ink yields, conserving ink when necessary. Additional features include using the Ricoh Web Image Monitor to remotely track printer supply levels and network settings, and to set-up and maintenance tasks, among other functions.
