Find a better place for a faster printing pace

Choose the affordable and compact RICOH P501 Black and White Printer to handle everyday print jobs from the convenience of your desktop. Print up to 45 pages per minute (ppm) at up to 1200 dpi to share your best ideas clearly and quickly. Add multiple paper trays, without expanding your footprint, to increase paper capacity to 2,100 sheets.

Meet every challenge effortlessly

Start printing quickly with recovery from Sleep Mode in less than 10 seconds. Then keep working -- even when multiple users send multiple jobs to the printer -- with the robust controller and powerful processor. When at the P501 Black and White Printer, check system status at a glance and speed through printer functions using the four-line LCD panel.

Make media fit your audience

Discover better ways to share your best ideas. Leverage LED imaging technology to maintain crisp clarity from the first page to the last. Print on media up to 8.5" x 14" and 43 lb. Bond/90 lb. to produce a wide range of jobs in-house. Use the 100-Sheet Bypass Tray to accommodate special stocks, weights and sizes, including envelopes, labels and more.

Be mobile, stay productive

You use your smartphone or tablet to collaborate and share information daily. Now, you can use it to print. Download the RICOH Smart Device Connector app to grab and print information directly from your personal mobile device without utilities or drivers. With the app, a smart device can serve as your own front-end, wireless interface for printing documents, emails and more on the P501.

Fortify your data security

With the P501 User Authentication capability, you can use Locked Print to hold documents until the owner releases it. When equipped with the optional Hard Disk Drive, the DataOverwriteSecurity System (DOSS) erases latent information left on the hard drive.

Track your performance

Capture critical details about users and activity. Use RICOH Device Manager NX Lite to check print settings, collect metered data, track levels, status and more -- whether the P501 is used as a standalone device or in a fleet of printers. You can also manage print queues and change settings and configurations easily from the desktop.

Be energy-efficient and eco-friendly

Designed to run quietly and efficiently on the desktop, the P501 Black and White Printer is ENERGY STAR certified and meets EPEAT Gold criteria* while achieving Typical Electricity Consumption of 1.8 kWh/week. Cut paper usage with default duplex printing and lower electricity costs with Energy Save Mode. Plus, Ricoh's product stewardship and recycling makes it easy to return your used supplies.
*EPEAT Gold rating is applicable only in the USA.

Simplify everyday management and maintenance

At Ricoh, we believe you should spend more time finding your next big idea than figuring out how to fix your printer. That's why we designed the P501 for long-lasting performance. If there is a misfeed, you can locate it and access it quickly without removing the fusing unit. With Ricoh's Web Image Monitor, you can check system status, change settings and expedite maintenance -- all from your desktop.
