Press release from the issuing company

West Caldwell, NJ, September 27, 2006 — Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, announced today that Business Equipment Research and Test Laboratories (BERTL), an industry source for product evaluations and comparative analyses, awarded the Ricoh Aficio GX3050N Color Printer its Four Star, highly-recommended rating. The Aficio GX3050N printer uses GelSprinter technology, which provides the print quality of a laser printer with the affordability of inkjet. This color network printer earned this honor for its overall versatility, high-quality print output, and speed, as well as providing customers with ease of use and cost efficiency. “We are honored to receive this award from BERTL for the Ricoh Aficio GX3050N, a GelSprinter technology product.” said Nick Ikeya, director of GelSprinter Business Development Group, of Ricoh Corporation. “Ricoh is committed to providing users with the utmost quality and user-friendly solutions with GelSprinter Technology in network devices and is proud to be recognized by BERTL for our continued achievements.” With maximum print speeds of 29 pages per minute (ppm) for both color and black and white prints, the Aficio GX3050N features outstanding image quality and handles all types of media with ease. To increase usability and performance, the system is equipped with the SmartDeviceMonitor utility, which allows users to view the status of the print job and sends pop-up messages to alert users when the job has been completed. SmartDeviceMonitor also enables devices to be grouped together to increase high-speed print capabilities and minimize network downtime. The RPCS driver on the Aficio GX3050N enables users to better organize their print jobs and features an intuitive design to help IT managers and users control the timing and location of print jobs. The feature also enables users to insert watermarks, headers, footers, page numbers, and print envelopes and other media with ease directly from the system. To earn the BERTL Four Star rating, the Aficio GX3050N went through a series of rigorous tests to measure performance, security, print output quality, and usability. BERTL analysts provide detailed reports of the technical and practical benefits of each device from the perspective of the business user. Emphasis is placed on worker productivity when assessing the performance and quality of network devices. “Our analysts agree that the Aficio GX3050N is highly recommended for business-critical features and functions as GelSprinter delivers a fleet of personal printers that many office users refuse to part with,” said Elizabeth McNichol, vice president, corporate relations, BERTL. “Once again, Ricoh offers a device with a high level of functionality, in an affordable price bracket, and rugged media handling capabilities that outshines other printers in its category.”
