Ricoh MP 6000 Printer Information
Large offices that are busy on a daily basis require equipment that is efficient and reliable, which is exactly what the Ricoh MP 6000 can offer. This machine is large in size, but equipped with multiple features and functions that will improve and increase production exponentially. It can be used as a scanner, copier, and printer, and users do have the option to add a fax board for faxing as well. These factors help make the MP 6000 worth the high upfront price.
This machine offers a large LCD screen that is easy to read and simple to navigate, due to its touchscreen capabilities. This display can be used to manage tasks, change print settings, monitor remaining levels of Ricoh MP 6000 printer toner, and identify errors. There are four standard print trays total, two of which hold 1,550 sheets each and the other two which hold 550 sheets each. There is also a 100-sheet bypass tray for alternative media types. The standard paper capacity is 4,300 sheets, but this can be expanded to 8,300 sheets if needed.
The 866 MHz processor allows for up to 60 pages per minute to be copied or printed and 75 images to be scanned per minute. The first page of a job will begin processing in only 4.2 seconds, and the machine itself will warm up from the off position in just 30 seconds. Though the memory capacity is 512 MB, only 256 MB are built in. Most major operating systems are supported by the MP 6000 and a connection can be made via USB or ethernet interface, with the option to add wireless capabilities.
Toners used in this machine have an impressively high page yield, minimizing the cost per page. Each Ricoh MP 6000 toner cartridge can yield up to 43,000 pages. Because of this high capacity, replacements should not be needed very often. Compared to expensive OEM supplies, third-party online vendors often have the most affordable replacement Ricoh MP 6000 toner cartridges.
An automatic duplexer allows for dual-sided printing and copying, and one-pass duplex scanning is available as well. There are 500 authenticating codes available for security purposes. Finishing options can be added, which include 2 and 3-hole punching, stapling, and booklet making. Though only black Ricoh MP 6000 toner is used, the maximum resolution is 1200x1200 dpi.
This laser all-in-one device weighs over 450 pounds and has a large footprint, so it is not the ideal unit for small offices. For large work environments with heavy-duty demands, however, the MP 6000 is a solid choice.
