Low-cost new model offers high quality full colour sustainable printing at speeds up to 29 p/min.
A new low-cost and sustainable GELJET colour printer was launched into the Irish market by Ricoh this week. Retailing at just €75, including a two year on-site warranty, it’s aimed at offering affordable and high-quality printing for small businesses, schools and home office users.
The GELJET Aficio SG 2100N is billed as Ricoh’s lowest-priced printer with the emphasis clearly on offering reliability and low running costs for users while delivering high quality full colour printouts at resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi on media up to A4 in size.
The printer is network ready with a built-in 10/100 Ethernet port in addition to USB 2.0 connectivity, and can print speeds up to 29 pages per minute with a duty cycle up to 10,000 prints per month.
Ricoh highlighted the fact that its GELJET printers use fast-drying viscous, pigment-based inks that are derived from soya, making them non-toxic and rapid drying. It also pointed out that the printer’s green credentials are enhanced further as it is constructed from recycled plastic and consumes 90 per cent less power than a colour laser printer. It only uses 27W of energy when printing, equivalent to that used by a single light bulb.
The SG 2100N supports printing from Windows PCs and Mac OS X systems, with wireless printing from Apple iOS and Android devices enabled via smart device apps. As part of the GelJet technology, the paper is fed through the printer by a transfer belt rather than rollers, a feature which enables it to handle relatively thick media of up to 163 gsm in weight from the 250-sheet standard tray, or up to 250 gsm using manual feed.
Greg Tierney, distribution manager, Ricoh Ireland, said, “The larger Ricoh GELJET printers are used widely across Ireland at a more enterprise level. This model benefits from the same technologies and materials but is offered at a very low price point. It is ideal for small offices, schools, shops and people working from home. As well as being extremely affordable, it offers high quality, fast and sustainable printing. The two year on-site warranty that’s included is another significant benefit for users.”
The GELJET Aficio SG 2100N is now available from Ricoh resellers and distributors in Ireland.
