The main problem with shoehorning inkjet printers and all-in-ones into the office environment is the time it takes for the ink to dry. Faster drying ink means higher print speeds, so Ricoh’s Gelsprinter technology that utilises gel-based inks, is designed to offer high-speed documents, with the benefits of the large colour gamut …
That sounds like a rather generous verdict and score, for what could be summed up as "Awful, avoid at all costs!"
Stick with what you know Ricoh, whatever that is...
