Ricoh Launches A4 Monochrome Desktop Printer, MFP for the Retail Channel, Start at $119


Ricoh SP 112SU

Ricoh Americas is launching a monochrome printer and MFP for the retail channel, the SP 112 ($119 SRP), a standalone printer, and the SP 112SU ($144 SRP), an MFP with print, copy, and color scan.

Ricoh is emphasizing the new desktop printer and MFP’s small footprint – the SP 112 printer and SP112SU MFP have a profile of under 5 inches and 6.5 inches respectively, and both have 15-x16-inch footprints, which Ricoh says make them appropriate even in small spaces, including in small offices, home offices, medical offices, and in corporate offices. By selling through the retail channel, the printer and MFP are part of Ricoh’s strategy to raise awareness of the Ricoh brand – best known in the office-copier/MFP  market – among more potential customers.

Both monochrome printer and MFP print at up to 16 ppm at up to 1,200 x 600 dpi resolution and, according to Ricoh, can be set up in minutes with a simple USB 2.0 connection. The included Smart Organizing Monitor software utility displays current toner levels and device settings, and provides device status updates.

Both devices are faster than their predecessor models (the SP 100 e and SP 100SU e, which both printed at up to 13 ppm). Both devices print on from from 8.5 x11 inches to 8.5 x 14 inches, and include a 50-sheet paper tray and an all-in-one toner cartridge for easy replacement.
