More details on the SP C352DN is in our Features section below.

The SP C352DN is a versatile color printer with a wide range of features for the small-to-medium-sized offices. It’s compact enough to fit on a desk but can also be scale up to a floor-length device with a few additional paper trays.

Features

Paper input starts with a 500-sheet tray and a 100-sheet bypass tray. Ricoh offers optional paper trays for a maximum capacity of 2,100 sheets. They are: a 250-sheet paper feed unit, a 500-sheet paper feed unit, a low cabinet and a tall cabinet.

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 250 sheets, and there are no finishing options.

The hard disk drive can store up to 950 documents and up to 1,000 pages per document. Other printer features include locked print, hold print, rotate print, gray reproduction, color profile, CMYK simulation and the ability to not print blank pages.

The SP C352DN has a wide range of security features that include hard disk drive data overwrite, LDAP authentication, address book encryption, IP filtering, password encryption and more.

The SP C352DN ships with 4,000-page black and 3,500-page color starter toners. The yield for aftermarket print cartridges is 10,000 pages in black and 9,000 pages each in cyan, magenta and yellow. We don’t have the prices for the consumables so we were unable to calculate the cost per page. However, based on Ricoh’s history of low cost of ownership, we can expect that the cost-per-page will be reasonable.

Users can also save on print cartridge costs by utilizing the printer’s environmental features, such as duplexing and the ECO-Night Sensor that powers down the printer when the office’s lights shuts off for the night.

Finally, the SP C352DN has a one-year warranty.

Shortcomings

The SP C352DN is intended for offices that have lower-volume printing needs. Offices that are looking for a printer that supports high-volume printing can check out our other reviews.

Also, none of the paper trays accept ledger-sized (11″ x 17″) paper, including the bypass tray that support banner-sized (8.5″ x 49.60″) paper.
