Product Overview

The SP C360DNw joins the SP C352DN in Ricoh’s lineup of single-function color printers. Unlike the SP C352DN, the SP C360DNw has standard wireless connectivity.

The SP C360DNw ($465 MSRP) prints at up to 30ppm in black and color. It includes a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of memory (non-expandable). Its first-page-out time is 8.6 seconds in color and there is a four-line LCD display panel for accessing workflow functions.

PCL, PostScript and direct PDF printer languages is supported. Gigabit Ethernet, USB and wireless connectivity are standard. Mobile printing functionality is standard via Apple AirPrint, Mopria, Google Cloud Print apps, and the Ricoh Smart Device Connector.

More details on the SP C360DNw is in our Features section below.

The SP C360DNw is a good buy for small-to-medium-sized offices that are looking for a color printer but doesen’t necessarily need all the bells and whistles.

Features

Paper input starts with a 250-sheet tray and a 100-sheet bypass tray. Ricoh offers optional paper trays for a maximum capacity of 850 sheets, such as a 250-sheet paper feed unit and a 500-sheet paper feed unit.

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 200 sheets, and there are no finishing options. The maximum monthly duty cycle is 75,000 pages.

The SP C360DNw ships with 2,500-page black and 1,500-page color starter toners. The high-capacity yield for aftermarket print cartridges is 7,000 pages in black and 5,000 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 N-up feature that allows users to print up to 16 pages in a single sheet.

Finally, the SP C360DNw has a one-year warranty.

Shortcomings

The SP C360DNw is mainly intended for offices that are looking for a color printer without the bells and whistles.
