Ricoh GX2500 gel printer
Ricoh recently introduced the GelSprinter GX2500, the first in its line of gel printers meant for workgroups of up to three users. The GX2500 is capable of printing 28 pages per minute in both color, and black and white, using a viscous ink formulation to provide waterproof, smear-less images that don't bleed through paper. Ricoh says the printer is ideal for cost conscious organizations such as schools, real estate firms, and insurance offices. The GX2500 is currently available for $170 through Ricoh's online store, and through select retailers nationwide.
The GX2500 offers a Level Color mode, allowing users to print colorful, high-quality business graphics, while reducing overall ink consumption and providing legible text. The GX series uses the same line of high-yield print cartridges as the rest of the GelSprinter products, and is an Energy Star compliant device, with environmentally friendly consumables.
