Ricoh's Aficio G500/G700 Color Printer Series Receives Four Stars from BERTL

Press release from the issuing company

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Oct. 6 -- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced that its Aficio G500/G700 color printer series garnered a Four Star, highly recommended rating from Business Equipment Research and Test Laboratories (BERTL(TM)). Ricoh's Aficio G500 and G700 are equipped with GelSprinter(TM) technology, a fast drying, water resistant formula that reduces blurs and bleeding while producing laser-like quality prints. The series is unlike any other inkjet or laser printers as it employs viscous ink and wide print heads. Individual color cartridges maximize ink use and minimize replacement costs, and with wider print heads, users can attain quick print speeds and high-quality prints on plain paper from the same system. Designed for small businesses and workgroups, the devices offer full color printing with crisp images at an extraordinarily low cost. Less vibration than the typical inkjet printer makes the unit suitable for use on desks and other working surfaces. Other key benefits include high-quality output with true 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution, and optional true-duplexing and Ethernet capabilities. The BERTL report states that the Ricoh Aficio G500/G700 series offers an, "impressive balance of fast, high-quality text and near proofing-level color output. Even heavily-inked, plain-paper pages don't become saturated as is the case with most inkjet printers." "Industry awards like BERTL's reflect Ricoh's unwavering dedication to developing high-quality devices tailored for its customers. The Ricoh Aficio G500/G700 series is perfect for any office seeking a small, inexpensive office solution with high-speed color prints," said Hede Nonaka, vice president of Marketing, Ricoh Corporation. "We feel this series sets the precedent for full-color business printers by giving users the quality and efficiency they need to effectively compete in fast-paced business environments."
