• PROS

    Reasonably fast. Excellent print quality. Strong paper expansion capacity. High-yield toner cartridge. Very low running costs. Strong security features.

  • CONS

    Expensive printer and add-ons. Fax, OCR, and Wi-Fi cost extra. ADF duplexer is not single-pass.

  • BOTTOM LINE

    The Ricoh MP 501SPF monochrome laser AIO comes with a wealth of top-drawer features and expansion options. It prints capably, fast, and at a very low cost per page, but the printer itself will cost you.

Price: $2,096.73
Was: $2,225.20
Designed for midsize to large offices and workgroups, the RicohBlack and White Laser Multifunction Printer ($3,499) ($2,096.73 at Amazon) means business—and then some. Out of the box it comes with a richer feature set and greater functionality than your average high-volume monochrome laser all-in-one (AIO), and if it doesn’t do what you want by default, rest assured, there’s an add-on that can.In addition to printing well, and fast, everything about the 501SPF—its huge monthly duty cycle, highly expandable high-capacity paper input, tablet-size touch screen control panel, 350GB hard drive, and incredibly low cost per page—screams high-volume. Even so, too many of the most useful and more common features, such as Wi-Fi, fax, and optical character recognition (OCR), are (often expensive) add-ons, given its lofty price, which is just enough to preclude it from gaining our Editors’ Choice nod. Aside from that, though, the 501SPF is a highly capable and sophisticated high-volume monochrome laser printer.
