The Ricoh GX3050 uses four ink cartridges to produce both black-and-white and full-colour prints. The ink colours used are black, cyan, magenta and yellow. The GX3050 prints at a speed of up to 29 pages per minute and can be used as a printer for both PC and Mac computers. When the ink levels are low or empty, the ink cartridges must be replaced and the system reset in order to continue printing documents.
