Ricoh 1060 Printer Review
Modular in design and versatile in functionality, the Ricoh 1060 is an all-in-one document management system that will improve the rate and quality of production in a busy office. Compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems, this unit is network-ready with optional wireless connectivity. The 1060 is expensive, but its durability and expandability make it a value for workplaces with heavy-duty copying, printing, and scanning needs.
When using the digital copier, up to 999 duplicates can be made per original and users can resize the image from 25-400% of the actual size. Whether making copies or printing, as many as 60 pages per minute can be produced, equating to one second per page. Documents are scanned at an even faster rate, at up to 75 images per minute.
The built-in paper capacity is 4,300, consisting of two main trays that hold 1,550 sheets each, and two secondary trays that each hold 550 sheets. There is also a 100-sheet bypass tray that supports alternative media like envelopes and labels. Optional finishers offer finalizing features, such as stapling, hole-punching, and saddle-stitching of completed documents.
For such a high-volume unit, high-capacity toners are required. Ricoh 1060 toner cartridges can yield up to 43,000 pages. Replacement printer toner is not overly expensive, so the high-yield of the Aficio 1060 toner cartridge minimizes the actual cost per printed page. Though this is a monochrome device, meaning it only produces black-and-white documents, the Ricoh 1060 toner can render an impressive resolution of 1200x1200 dpi.
Weighing 441 pounds and with a footprint of 28x39x47 inches, the 1060 takes up quite a bit of space, but still ultimately saves room by combining three essential pieces of office equipment. Some other features include 128 MB of RAM, a 375 MHz processor, a 40 GB hard drive, and an automatic duplexer. The level of remaining Aficio 1060 toner can be monitored on the intuitive LCD display, along with information on current tasks, and users can connect via USB port or ethernet interface.
Overall, this is a powerful multifunction machine that offers a number of features and functions to handle heavy workloads daily. Using laser technology, it produces high-quality documents at lightning-fast speeds. Operational costs are kept in check because of the high-yielding Ricoh 1060 toner, making this triple threat a must-have for a busy office.
