Ricoh Aficio SP 4310N Laser Printer

Ricoh introduced the Aficio SP 4310N monochrome laser printer, engineered for busy offices and workgroups. Advanced features and workflow tools, such as genuine Adobe PostScript 3, a 4-line LCD panel with an integrated 12-key alphanumeric keypad, and an optional 80 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD), contribute to better productivity and improved security with a reduced total cost of ownership.

The Aficio SP 4310N is one of Ricoh's mid-volume B&W printers that fit into the company's overall Managed Document Services (MDS) strategy. Ricoh MDS is designed to address customers' document management needs for greater energy and cost savings by guiding organizations through a transformation process that, among other things, establishes effective print practices designed to help improve workflow and increase productivity.

The Aficio SP 4310N replaces the Aficio SP 4210N in Ricoh's monochrome laser printer product line. The SP 4310N uses Ricoh's premier GW Architecture Controller to quickly process every job in the user's choice of genuine Adobe PostScript 3 that supports 136 Adobe fonts, PCL 5e/6, or XPS page description languages. In addition, the SP 4310N supports a number of host-print environments. Like its predecessor, the networked SP 4310N maintains first print speeds of seven seconds or less and an output speed of 37 pages per minute (Letter) at resolutions up to 1200 x 600 dpi. Windows and Mac compatible, the SP 4310N is equipped with a 466 MHz CPU and 256 MB RAM (expandable to 512 MB).

The printer incorporates a redesigned 4-line LCD panel with an integrated 12-key alphanumeric keypad. The larger LCD allows for at-a-glance supply monitoring and more informative system status messages; the keypad makes it easier to enter network settings and numerical values.

Paper sizes are easily adjusted up to 8.5″ x 14″, and users can add one or two optional 500-sheet Paper Feed Units to the standard 500-sheet Tray for a maximum paper capacity of 1,600 sheets (including the 100-sheet Bypass Tray) to minimize interruptions in busy workgroup environments. Further, the SP 4310N uses Ricoh's 15,000-page All In One (AIO) print cartridge supplies that can be changed in seconds and deliver low cost per page factors.

The Aficio SP 4310N also boasts energy-saving features that help to further reduce total cost of ownership. ENERGY STAR compliant, the SP 4310N includes a Toner Saving Mode that helps increase print cartridge yields, N-in-1 print modes that combine multiple pages onto a single sheet of paper, and optional Automatic Duplexing that outputs two-sided prints.

The Aficio SP 4310N can be expanded to meet an individual account's unique workflow requirements with optional Embedded Software Architecture (ESA) applications, IPDS printing, or upgraded security functions. Support for multiple user authentication modes and 128-/256-bit SSL data encryption protect print jobs and passwords from theft, while the new Printer Driver Editor allows administrators to enforce printing rules by setting and locking driver settings for individual users.

Increased security can be achieved with an optional 80 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD) which includes a HDD Encryption Unit and the Data Overwrite Security System (DOSS). The HDD Encryption Unit supports secure local document storage for up to 9,000 pages and an easy to use Locked Print feature for confidential documents, while DOSS when activated automatically overwrites the HDD after each job.

Price and Availability
The Ricoh Aficio SP 4310N has a starting MSRP of $799. See offers at eBay and Amazon.
