Conclusion: The Ricoh Aficio G700 is technically an ink jet, but behaves like a laser. It offers extraordinary performance, high-quality text and graphics, and photo quality that's low for an ink jet but reasonable for a laser. Its competition is not other ink jets, but low-end color lasers.
Pros: High-quality text. High-quality graphics in best quality mode. Extraordinarily fast performance. Duplexing standard. Optional 500-sheet tray for maximum 700-sheet input capacity.
Cons: Network adapter is optional and external. Graphics in default mode show banding, which limits the usefulness of default mode.
