Ricoh Aficio AP410
THE INDEPENDENT GUIDE TO TECHNOLOGY J U LY , 20 05
For those in need of a monochrome workhorse printer for their small office, the Ricoh Aficio AP410 ($530 street) is the right size and price and offers a solid level of performance and quality. It will also fit nicely as a power user's personal printer, or in a home office for anyone who needs to print lots of high-quality text documents (say, a lawyer who works partly from home, or a salesperson who needs to bring professional-looking documents to prospects without stopping by the office first).
Measuring 15.3 by 17.7 by 13.6 inches (HWD), and weighing 38 pounds, the AP410 can fit conveniently on a desktop and is light enough for one person to move around. As tested, it can hold 500 sheets in a paper tray and another 100 sheets in a multipurpose tray, so you can easily feed an envelope or a second type of paper, from preprinted letterhead to higher-quality paper stock to checks. You can add a duplexer ($195 list) and two additional 500-sheet drawers ($275 list, each) for a 1,600-sheet total input capacity. You can also add a network card, but at a whopping $330, it's not something we recommend. You can do better with Ricoh's own Aficio AP410N, which includes a network card in the base price.
and an automated installation program. The automated routine installs both a PCL driver and Ricoh's proprietary RPCS driver, which we used in our tests. Performance is impressive, both for the price and for the 28-page-perminute engine rating. The total time on our business applications suite (timed using QualityLogic's hardware and software, www.qualitylogic.com) was 5 minutes 45 seconds, almost as fast as the 5:29 total for the $840 Oki Data OKI B6300n and significantly faster than the 7:15 total for the TallyGenicom Intelliprint 9035n, both of which are rated at 35 ppm. The AP410 was also notably fast for photos, averaging 8 seconds for each 4-by-6 print and 12 seconds for each 8-by-10. Quite simply, the AP410 is the fastest printer we've seen in its price range or with its engine rating, save for its near twin, the AP410N. The AP410's output quality is almost as impressive as its performance. Text was excellent, with more than half the test fonts easily readable at 4 points, and none needing larger than 8 points. The good ratings for graphics and photos are both at the high end for monochrome lasers. Graphics suffered from a tendency for thin lines nearly to disappear and from the loss of some text from a PowerPoint presentation using the default settings. Even so, graphics

The Ricoh Aficio AP410 marries fast performance to excellent text quality, as well as better graphics and photo quality than most monochrome lasers can manage. With its USB connection, it's a good match for a small office or individual power user.

are good enough for most business use, especially if you're willing to tweak the driver settings for the particular output. Photos show minor dithering patterns and a tendency to lose subtle differences in shading, but most photos are still good enough to mistake for true photo quality at a glance. They are certainly adequate for printing client newsletters and the like. With everything it has going for it, the AP410 is our new Editors' Choice for a small-office workhorse or a power user's personal monochrome printer.
