Conclusion: The Ricoh Aficio CL1000N is strong on speed but mixed on output quality, with a higher claimed cost per page than some other inexpensive color lasers. That makes it worth considering, but may keep it off your short list, depending on your priorities.
Pros: Impressively fast performer for a four-pass printer. Good output quality for graphics and photos. Duplexer option available.
Cons: Text output quality is a little low for a color laser printer. Claimed cost per page is a little high.
