Ricoh SP C242DN overview

  • 1Description

The Aficio SP C242DN Network Color Laser Printer from Ricoh outputs 21 ppm in both black and color. The printer features automatic duplex printing, allowing you to save paper and reduce waste. Additionally, the printer features 4 all-in-one cartridges rather than separate toner and drum units for easier maintenance. In addition to a standard USB connection, the printer includes Ethernet connectivity so you can easily share it over a wired network as well as a PictBridge port to easily print photos directly from your PictBridge-enabled digital camera.
