Ricoh Americas Unveils Color MPC2050/2550

Awesome, to say the least, I haven't been very patient waiting to have our own A4 devices. To tell you the truth I would have been satisfied with A4 monochrome devices, however I'll admit that to have three new COLOR models the MPC2030, MPC2050 (20ppm) and MPC2550 (25ppm) is a stunning addition to the Ricoh lineup of MFP's!!!

Here's a few specs for ya:

An internal finisher with optional 2/3 hole punch
Standard duplexing at nearly 100% of mainframe speed.
Scan to email (w/LDAP), scan to folder (SMB, FTP, NCP), Network TWAIN and Scan to Media (USB/SD Card)
Full color VGA/touch panel monitor
1,200 dpi
Super G3 fax modem with JBIG compression, LAN fax, Internet Fax and auto Fax Forwarding to email/folder
Secure Print, DOSS and HDD Encryption
PxP supplies and a fast warm up time of 26 seconds

These systems are slated launch on December 1, 0f 2008. I'm hoping that these do not have AIO devices and they are similar to all of our other MFP's when it comes to toner cartridges and drum cartridges. I really like the internal finisher, the 2/3 hole punch and the fact that we can scan2usb and SD card. At first glance it seems like the Document Feeder is from the MP161SPF, you can also pick out the USB Slot on the left side of the system.

As of right now I do not have any reports of the MSRP or the estimated CPP. More on this in a few days!!!!

Art,

Is this on top of the new systems coming out that promise to be lower up-front cost for color?

Thanks,
Todd

It seems I relied on some information from the show and these devices are not A4, however A3. I'm really at a loss here, becuase I believed Ricoh neede to act quickly on an A4 device to compete with Muractec, Xerox, Samsung and Sharp
