Ideal for small businesses, the Aficio SP C400DN offers high-quality output and superior performance at a low price point.

The Aficio SP C400DN completes the SP C410DN/C411DN series, which is known for quality, high-speed printing and toner efficiency. The least expensive machine in the series, the Aficio SP C400DN prints at 26 pages per minute (ppm) in both color and black & white, enabling customers to maintain high productivity. In addition, the 600 MHz controller helps the customer output large files quickly. Furthermore, the printer warms up in less than 10 seconds for black and white prints and less than 15 seconds for color, minimizing wait time and increasing productivity. With a generous paper capacity of 1,750 sheets, there are fewer interruptions from reloading.

Small businesses will enjoy the cost savings associated with the efficiency and quality of the Aficio SP C400DN prints. With resolutions up to 1200 x 1200 dpi, the device produces vivid prints with professional-grade quality. From glossy presentation to black & white documents, the printer can handle a wide array of paper stocks and sizes to enable workgroups to print more jobs in-house. In doing so, the Aficio SP C400DN helps companies save money. The Aficio SP C400DN is easily expandable with the Ricoh IS200e Image Scanner. Users can affordably upgrade to multi-functionality by adding the scanner, which offers fast full-color and black & white scan speeds and extensive "scan-to" capabilities.

"The Aficio SP C400DN is a powerful addition to the SP C410DN/SP C411DN series, especially for workgroups looking for outstanding quality and productivity," said Ron Potesky, vice president of Corporate Product Marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "With high resolutions and bright color, users will receive exceptional output results with the functionality and ease-of-use they are familiar with in small office environments."

The affordable Aficio SP C400DN includes several features to streamline workflow, so the cost-conscious user can acquire a fast, reliable color system. An intuitive LCD operation panel on the face of printer provides simple access to menu functions and at-a-glance supply levels. The short, soft curve paper path ensures that print jobs run smoothly and allows the device to accept thick stock up to 110 lb. Index. The Aficio SP C400DN is equipped with WebImageMonitor so users can view system status, check supply levels and change printer settings remotely from their PC.

In today's business environment, it is essential to protect sensitive data from start to finish. The Aficio SP C400DN offers security features including the Unauthorized Copy Control feature, which embeds special messages on a printed document to prevent unauthorized copying and the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) option, which overwrites latent data information that is stored on the printer's hard drive after printing jobs to prevent unauthorized access.

The suggested retail price for the Aficio SP C400DN is $999. To learn more about Ricoh's full line of products, please visit www.ricoh-usa.com.
