Test: Ricoh SP C360SFNw: Print quality: Ricoh vs. Brother
The print quality of the Ricoh is consistently good. We compared the Ricoh test prints with a Brother device (Brother MFC-L9550CDWT).

If you print flyers, brochures or other printed material with photos or graphics and want a good image, Ricoh is not wrong. The printouts shown below are enlarged to show how the machines print.

Text print quality
In text printing, the Ricoh slightly blotches the letters, which can only be seen in the strong magnification under the microscope. With the naked eye, the letters appear just as good as Brother's prints.
The texts shown on the right are printed with "Toner Saving Mode" turned on. Both printers prove that they still print legible text while reducing toner application.
