Ricoh MP 3504SP Earns 4.5 Stars

DataMaster Labs have tested and evaluated both the MP C3504SP and MP C4504(A)SP, which represent the entirety of the new A3 color ranges from Ricoh – and Lanier, Savin and Rex Rotary. These machines had different results, but overall all have been given the excellent score of 4.5 out of 5 stars. This results from days of testing and of analysis of productivity and print quality results, and analyses of technical specifications in the context of each of the market segments the machines fall into.

The productivity tests were particularly good. There are variations between machines, but none are affected adversely by automatic color print jobs, nor by multiple print jobs arriving at once (a test mimicking a busy office environment). RIP times were quite good, and large multi-layer graphics files are treated in short order and, importantly, with no impact on walk-up productivity as measured by scanning standard test documents at 600 dpi simultaneously.

The very good print quality on all machines was also highlighted by the Lab team.

The new Android interface is easy to use. It is no longer possible to set up a new copy job until the first one has run, however. Nor is it now possible to handle covers on booklets in copy mode.

DataMaster‘s analyses and assessments are completely independent. Five-star certificates are extremely rare. To attain five stars, not only must the equipment under test demonstrate an excellent performance in most categories, but must have no major weakness in any of the evaluation criteria.

Machines’ evaluation certificates and the corresponding rosette badges (as well as those for other machines in the range with the same print engine, plus any rebadged machines sold by other brands) can all be downloaded for FREE from Printer-Benchmark.com. The radar chart, the detailed results of productivity tests and other comparison tools are available on the DMO website, accessible by subscription.
