  • Cleverly designed to be as compact and yet useful as possible, the mono Ricoh is a case of design, power and features trumping all else. Its footprint is small for an A3 device, but its weighty specifications include 28ppm speed, A3 output, and great quality text. The array of finishing devices quickly assemble professional leaflets and brochures, and a potential paper capacity of 3,150-sheets and masses of memory, allow it to handle large workloads with ease. It also happens to be very productive, highly secure, and is also extremely economical to run.

    Trademark Ricoh Quality
    A mono multifunction device capable of printing, scanning, copying and (with optional upgrade) faxing, the 2852D combines a space-saving design with strong technology. The printing component rips along at a rate of 28 pages per minute when working with A4 output. It's a fast starter, and turns out the first sheet within 4.5 seconds. More than this, though, it has glorious A3 output, giving those with more ideas more space in which to express them. The trademark Ricoh image quality is in evidence too, and the 600x600dpi resolution is pushed to full capacity, unleashing pure character definition and immaculatelines. And, should you want to create professional booklets, a battery of finishing options are available. These range from the internal stapler (carefully designed so that it saves space) to high-capacity 1,000-sheet saddle-stitchers.

    Big Memory, Bigger Paper Handling
    The 2852D doesn't stint on paper handling either. As standard, it employs two cassettes and a 100-sheet bypass to create a 1,150-sheet capacity. This should be sufficient for most workgroups, but larger offices may feel the need to expand a little. Luckily, there are options here too, and additional trays can increase the figure to a gigantic 3,150 sheets. The MFD also comes with plenty of memory. This is crucial, as a meagre RAM portion means the printer will have to slow down when faced with large files soaked in images and charts. This MFD, though, has a whole gigabyte of memory, meaning it can handle pretty much any file or files you throw at it. An additional 120GB hard drive is included too.

    Small Footprint
    The Aficio 2852's Simple Cube Design gives this device one of the smallest footprints in its class. This isn't just a matter of dimensions, and Ricoh has carefully designed the accessories so that they're completely enclosed by the casing where possible. That doesn't prevent this MFD from having a rather practical design, though. The paper trays are all front-loaded, for instance, so they're easy to get to when you need to refill them. This thought runs through the machine, and the clear friendly touch screen is your welcoming gateway to the many useful features aboard.

    Networking and Security
    The Ricoh 2852 blends easily into your office network, although its 10/100 Ethernet connection can be upgraded to Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, or 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, should the need arise. It supports the widely-used PCL5e/6 Printer Languages as standard, with Adobe PS 3 and IPDS available as options. Ricoh's security features are excellent, and it uses a selection of encryption and authentication techniques to guarantee integrity. Used data is quickly removed, leaving fewer traces for electronic intruders to rake over. The Personal Paperless Document Server (PPDS) quickly converts documents to PDFs or editable Word files, and Mail-to-Print lets mobile users email PDF and JPG attachments directly to the MFD for printing. USB sticks and memory cards can be read.

    Beautifully designed, this compact wonder produces wonderful A3/A4 output, and can then turn them into leaflets and brochures. Its other tools will lift security and productivity.
