High-quality, affordable color printing

Want to make color a bigger part of your document strategy? The RICOH SP C830DN Color Laser Printer offers full-color printing at up to 45 pages per minute and delivers outstanding image quality. Share information more effectively by adding a greater depth of color, putting images to work and staying on point — and on budget.

Broaden your output range

Expand your printing capabilities by using thinner paper stocks, envelopes and paper sizes from internal paper trays. Plus, gain support for stocks up to 170 lb. Index via the bypass tray. Enjoy vibrant 4-bit color technology to create impressive images with 9600 x 600 dpi equivalent resolution. Plus, the proprietary, oil-free polyester polymerization toner delivers smooth gradations for crisp lines and sharp color reproductions.

Use more networked options to connect and print

The Standard USB 2.0 and 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet interfaces align with simple peer-to-peer and shared use environments. Dual USB 2.0 host interfaces provide a direct connection to third-party external devices. Or, choose optional Gigabit, Wireless LAN and parallel interfaces to meet unique network requirements. Also, print documents on the go using convenient USB and SD media ports integrated directly into the control panel.

Customize your printer to meet your business needs

Take advantage of multiple print finishing options to stack, staple and hole-punch documents. Add the 1,200-sheet side large capacity tray to boost paper supply to a max 4,400 sheets and extend high-volume performance. Capitalize on high-volume multi-position stapling with the 3,000-sheet finisher. Or, add the optional 2,000-sheet inline booklet finisher to cost-effectively produce a range of full-color booklets.

Become more agile

Complete tasks using the tilting 4.3" color touchscreen control panel. Enjoy simple menu navigation and one-touch access to jobs, system status and frequently used shortcuts. Breeze through tasks using familiar icons, and keep print operations moving smoothly with standard step-by-step, animated guidance features. Additionally, preview print jobs before they print to help decrease user error, reduce paper use and achieve more accurate results.

Printer management and security keeps your data safe

Your important documents are worth protecting. The SP C830DN color laser printer lets you establish user-authentication controls so documents are restricted by various protocols, such as individual pin codes or ID cards. The optional 250GB Hard Disk supports the DataOverwriteSecurity System, which automatically erases any latent data left behind after each print job. The hard drive also supports data encryption, as well as the Locked Print feature, which only releases documents to authorized users.

Manage your printer from your desktop

Ensure that the SP C830DN is ready when you are. Manage proactively using the standard Web Image Monitor, Device Manager NX and Ricoh @Remote tool. From the convenience of your desktop, you can check on its device usage, automate meter reads and get toner alerts to help eliminate surprises and reduce downtime.

Energy-efficient printer features help the environment

Embrace features that align with your environmental commitment. The SP C830DN uses advanced fusing technology that requires less power. Choose if the printer turns off automatically or enters Sleep mode. Also, the device has a low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) value* (as determined by ENERGY STAR® program testing requirements) and is ENERGY STAR certified, so it uses less energy. Also, our consumable and product recycling programs make it easy to recycle.
