WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Oct. 26 -- Ricoh Corporation, the leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced that it has been awarded a Four Star, highly recommended rating from Business Equipment Research and Test Laboratories (BERTL(TM)) for its Aficio CL4000DN Color Laser Printer. Designed for small to midsize offices or large workgroups, the Aficio CL4000DN is a desktop printer that offers superior productivity across a broad range of business applications and workflow environments. At 26 pages per minute (ppm), in both full color and black and white, the device boasts impressive speed and paper-handling. With standard duplexing integrated into its design and high toner yields, the Aficio CL4000DN minimizes user intervention and permits longer print runs and enhanced productivity overall. Additionally, the machine is attractively priced with an extremely low cost per print. "We are pleased with BERTL's high rating of Ricoh's Aficio CL4000DN. Ricoh continues to maintain its high-standard of creating top-quality printers tailored for businesses' needs," said Hede Nonaka, vice president of Marketing for Ricoh Corporation. "The Aficio CL4000DN features a multitude of enhanced capabilities, most notably strong speed, color quality and paper handling, making it a perfect addition to the Ricoh family of printers." BERTL recognized the Aficio CL4000DN for its networking features, which allow multi-device settings to maximize productivity. BERTL analysts were particularly impressed by the efficiency of the 533Mhz controller, stating that it delivered, "quick click-to-clunk across a wide range of typical business color applications." "Click-to-Clunk" is an often-used method of measuring printer speed based on when the last command is executed to initiate a print job (click) to the moment when the last printed page of the job falls into the output tray (clunk). "Ricoh's Aficio CL4000DN impressed us with its quality of output and easy-to-use image adjustment features. This product offers outstanding color image quality and a strong set of features that will satisfy business users, as will the attractive low price," said Elizabeth McNichol, vice president of Corporate Relations for BERTL.
