Ricoh has launched a set of three monochrome laser printers in the United States. The SP 213SNw
and SP 213SFNw
multifunction printers and the SP 213Nw
printer all offer print speeds of up to 23 pages per minute, a low 10-second wait for the first print, minimal warm-up times, and a number of different connectivity and networking options.
All three can be connected using USB 2.0 and Ethernet, with the SP 213 series also including the option to connect to a network over Wi-Fi. The trio all use a 360MHz PCL print controller with 128MB of RAM and a fanless design said to help keep the printers quiet, with each including 80 resident PCL fonts, and can print at up to 1200x600dpi.

The SFNw version also includes the ability to fax documents, and has a built-in 100-entry address book.
