Ricoh MPC2030/2050/2550 Review



I traveled to Ricoh's New York City portal for the BIG BANG LAUNCH for the Ricoh 2030/2050/2550. I must say that I was impressed with color quality of this unit along with some outstanding features and new solution software!

A few of the notes that I collected:

Ricoh 2030spf (Entry Level Color)
20ppm in color and monochrome at 600 dpi
4 line LCD Display
512MB Memory Max
Standard TWAIN Scanning
No Adavanced Architecture, meaning no Document Server, no HD available
10K Black
5.5K Color
upto 12x18 paper thru by-pass
no finishing options

Pretty much a bare bones color system built to compete against A4 color units. MSRP is $5,500

Ricoh 2050spf and MPC 2050 (scanner and printer)
20ppm in color and monochrome at 600 dpi
Large Color Display
Optional Internal Finisher staple up to 50 Pages and optional hole punch
WSD scanner, XPS Driver, Mobile Driver
500 x 1 Paper Feed Unit (with Caster Table)
Mail-to-Print feature (MP C2050/C2550)
Scan-to-Media (USB/SD Card) (MP C2050/C2550)
Advanced Architecture, full boat with scan technologies. MSRP is $5,800

Ricoh 2550spf and MPC2550 (scanner and printer)
25ppm in color and monochrome @ 600 dpi
Large Color Display
Optional Internal Finisher staple up to 50 Pages and optional hole punch
WSD scanner, XPS Driver, Mobile Driver
500 x 1 Paper Feed Unit (with Caster Table)
Mail-to-Print feature (MP C2050/C2550)
Scan-to-Media (USB/SD Card) (MP C2050/C2550)

Advanced Architecture, full boat with scan technologies. MSRP is $7,500

No Fierys will be available for these units, if you need a fiery you'll have to advance to the MPC2800. The Fiery for this unit is set as a post launch.

What I liked most:

Mail2print (Print an E-mail attachment directly to the MFP!)
CAP Card Authentication Package
Scan2media, USB and SD Card
Automatic File Naming
Global Scan NX
Previre before Tranmission

-=Good Selling=-

The 2550 does not print in color. Only has a color scanner.

As stated the MPC(C for color) 2030, 2050 and 2550 can all print and scan in color. Ricoh does have an MP2550 that will only scan color and print monochrome.

Our launch had a C2550 and I assure you it scans, copies AND prints in color. Quite impressive and when you see the $$$ you'll forget about monochrome.

I agree, this machine is practicaly "the only one" in market. I tested it and its performance raise it ahead from competition...

Only one in the market? Have you not seen the Sharp A4 line up?
