The new black: Ricoh launches low cost colour laser printer

  • 11 April, 2005 16:40

<p>Ricoh introduces a new concept in laser printing with the launch of the Aficio CL4000DN desktop printer. The first low cost black-and-white network laser printer with the added value of colour, the CL4000DN eliminates the need to ever buy a mono printer again.</p>
<p>Specifically designed for small to medium businesses with occasional colour printing needs, the CL4000DN is a cost effective alternative to standalone colour inkjets or outsourcing.</p>
<p>Priced to compete with the running costs of equivalent dedicated mono laser printers, the Aficio CL4000DN is the perfect introduction to network colour. However with 25ppm in both black-and-white and colour, along with high quality 1,200 dpi resolution, the CL4000DN has the ability to grow with your colour requirements.</p>
<p>A major deterrent when purchasing colour laser printers has been the high cost per page print. A black-and-white print on the CL4000DN is priced at standard B&amp;W laser prices and is up to half the current cost of a black and white print on other colour devices. Colour prints are also competitively priced.</p>
<p>By utilising Ricoh’s User Code Access, the CL4000DN can function as a black-and-white network printer with colour restricted to only those who need it. And for added security the CL4000DN offers optional data encryption when transferring files over the network.</p>
<p>Optimising productivity and efficiency, this office speed-star comes standard with a duplex unit and maintains its speed even when printing double sided documents.</p>
<p>Offering flexible paper handling, the CL4000DN comes standard with a 550-sheet paper drawer and 100-sheet bypass tray. Two additional paper trays can be added taking its total paper capacity to 1,750 sheets.</p>
<p>Exceptionally high toner yields and paper capacity allow for minimal user intervention, longer print runs and enhanced productivity. All consumables can be easily accessed by the end user delivering a streamlined, cost-effective solution.</p>
<p>To meet growing business needs, the CL4000DN can be enhanced with the optional Ricoh Aficio IS200e Image Scanner that provides full colour and black-and-white scanning.</p>
<p>Designed for small to medium businesses and large workgroups, the CL4000DN puts colour and black-and-white printing at users’ fingertips at an unmatched total cost of ownership.</p>
<p>The Aficio CL4000DN is now available at a suggested retail price of $3,195 inc GST.</p>

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
