Ricoh C9200 Question


We are in the process of getting a Ricoh C9200 installed and a salesperson had this question:
If I'm using a 300 dpi image at 100%, or a 600 dpi image (or larger) at 100%, will you be able to tell a quality difference on the C9200?

I have this question out to our Ricoh rep and one of their analyst....but figured I would put it out here too. I'm sure they'll have an answer for me tomorrow.

I would say yes. While there are rapidly diminishing returns as you go over 300 dpi, I think 400 dpi would be recommended. That is what we use thought the average person isn't going to see the difference. Anything over that is a waste in my opinion.

The old rule of thumb was that the resolution should be 1.5-2 times your line screen. So for 200 screen frequency, 400 dpi would give the best results.

They were right then and continue to be right today. Because toner and inkjet can be better together. Read the Post
