There are many multi-purpose printers on the market made by various manufacturers. A lesser-known brand is Ricoh, and the Ricoh Aficio C2000, though it may not be as popular as some models, has some of the best features needed to successfully run a business. It has the ability to print quickly and professionally and handle high-volume print jobs. This color laser toner
printer will be a good addition to any medium or large office, though it might be a bit robust for smaller spaces.
The C2000 has four main functions—scanning, faxing, copying and printing. It is not only known for its crisp and clear black text documents but also for its solid color graphics. There are four Ricoh C2000 toner cartridges—black, cyan, magenta and yellow. Using any printer toner, up to 25 pages per minute can be produced. The black Aficio C2000 toner has a page yield of 20,000 while the color toners can each yield 15,000 pages.
This unit has a 3,200-sheet standard capacity and can serve as a copy and fax machine without being connected to a PC. It has built-in memory for documents storage and is network ready to appease the needs of multiple computers in the office. It also has a memory card reader. Though the Aficio C2000 toner cartridges are high-volume, they will eventually run low, which will be brought to the users attention via the full color LCD on the top panel. Replacement Ricoh toner
can be purchased new or remanufactured.
Replacement Ricoh C2000 toner can easily be found online from the original manufacturer or third party vendors. These vendors provide remanufactured versions, which are sold for less than half as much as the new toners are. Using these will keep the cost of maintaining the C2000 low and workable for any budget.
