Product Overview

The P C600 joins Ricoh’s new lineup of Value Devices that provide intuitive and easy-to-maintain features. Users can easily set up the printers, using the installation wizard, as well as use Ricoh’s integrated workflow solutions for efficient printer maintenance. The Value Devices also offer long-life drum and higher-yield toner cartridges that contribute to lower operating costs.

The P C600 is a single function color printer with a speed of up to 42 ppm. The warm-up speed is 22 seconds. The printer also has a 6.5-second first-page-out time in color, as well as a tiltable LCD control panel.

There is a 1.3 GHz processor, 2 GB of memory (not expandable) and an optional 320 GB hard drive. PCL and PostScript printing languages are supported. USB and Ethernet is standard, while wireless is optional. Mobile printing is also supported via Ricoh’s Smart Device Connector, Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print apps. For Android device users, the Near Field Communication (NFC) feature is standard.

Paper input starts with a 500-sheet tray and a 100-sheet bypass tray. Ricoh offers the option of adding up to three 500-sheet paper trays for a maximum capacity of 2,100 sheets.

The bypass tray supports envelope and banner printing, while the other trays supports paper up to 8.5″ x 14″. Automatic duplexing is standard. The output paper capacity is 500 sheets, and there are no finishing options.

The P C600 printer has a wide range of security features, such as locked print, hard disk drive data overwrite, LDAP authentication, address book encryption and IP filtering.

The printer ships with 8,000-page black and 6,000-page color starter toners. The yield for aftermarket print cartridges is 18,000 pages in black and 12,000 pages each in cyan, magenta and yellow. We don’t have prices of the consumables to calculate the cost per page. However, users can take advantage of the long-life drum units and higher-yield consumables, as well as duplexing, to keep operating costs low.

Finally, the P C600 includes integrated workflow solutions that help offices streamline the printer management process, such as Ricoh Streamline NX, Ricoh Device Manager NX Lite and Ricoh @Remote Office NX.
