BLI’s recommended monthly duty cycle for peak usage:  Up to 100,000 impressions. With manufacturer-rated speeds of 45 ppm for color and 60 ppm for black, the Ricoh Acio 3260C proved to be a strong overall unit during its two-month lab assessment at BLI. Earning Very Good to Excellent ratings in many aspects of performance evaluated, the Acio 3260C, which has standard copy, network print and scan functionality (fax capability is not supported), displayed sound multitasking ability throughout testing. The unit offers very good administrative utilities and a range of print drivers, including an optional Adobe PostScript 3 driver. While color print quality was very good as tested with Ricoh’s controller, users with more exacting color output needs can outt the Acio 3260C with an optional Fiery controller, which will provide more precise control of color output and improved performance for graphics-intensive applications. Furthermore, the unit is productive, garnering ratings ranging from Good to Excellent. Also noteworthy is its four 80-GB hard drives (320 GB total), which is tied with several other devices for the highest capacity in the competitive group, as well Ricoh Aficio 3260C 45 PPM Color/60 PPM Black Copier  ã Printer  ã Scanner  Test duration:  Two months, including a 150,000-impression durability test.

Although the unit’s suggested retail price tag is among the highest when compared to business color models in this speed range tested to date, BLI recommends the Acio 3260C for monthly volumes of up to 100,000 impressions.   The Acio 3260C proved to be highly reliable throughout its 150,000-impres - sion durability test. Although it misfed 13 times for a misfeed rate of one per 11,538 impressions, no service of any kind was required.   The unit’s photoconductor yield of 300,000 impressions is competitive for business color models in this speed range tested to date.   Up to nine copy jobs can be programmed ahead while a print or copy job is in progress. Some other devices in this speed range enable the programming ahead of more jobs or an unlimited number of copy jobs. —  The user must select the New Job key, which is small and may be over - looked, to program the next copy job, whereas some systems don’t require users to press a key.   The number of print jobs that can be sent to the Acio 3260C is limited only by memory capacity.   Up to nine copy jobs can always be programmed, regardless of how many print jobs may already be in the queue.   The next copy job can be programmed once all the pages of the previous copy job have been scanned. However, a scan job can be programmed ahead while the pages of the copy job are still being scanned.   An administrator can establish a priority mode, which can either be copy, print, the function that corresponds to the function currently on the control panel display or the order in which jobs are sent.

When copy is the priority, a print job pauses to output a copy job and then resumes; similarly, when print is established as the priority, a copy job that is running will pause to allow output of a print job.   The Interrupt hard key can be used to interrupt either a copy or a print job to program a copy job with access to all features. A print job is interrupted immediately, while copy jobs continue until the Start key is pressed, which is more efcient.   Once the interrupt job is complete, the interrupted job automatically resumes.   SmartDeviceMonitor allows conguring and monitoring of the unit and other Ricoh devices on the network from a client PC. The version for administra - tors also monitors other manufacturers’ devices on the network, but it pro -vides more detailed information on Ricoh devices.   SmartDeviceMonitor provides real-time status information on the Acio 3260C, including busy/idle, paper and toner levels and the current setup.  ADMINISTRATIVE UTILITIES VERY GOOD SmartDeviceMonitor—Administrator Version   This report has been reproduced with the written permission of Buyers Laboratory Inc.

Moreover, PDF Direct Print offers pop-up message for job status and error warnings.   Ricoh’s @Remote, which enables automated meter readings, is available for this model but only with the Ricoh controller.
