Summary: This Ricoh is a great printer. It produces high quality color and B/W images. Far better than my old HP Color Laser. Easy setup. Must use the CD that comes with the printer. Don't know why other have had problems with power consumption. It automatically goes into two levels of power saving.
Summary: Right out of the box, the quick start page is just a series of unclear pictures, no words that is mostly useless. So I went to the manual, only to discover there was a lengthy manual for scanning, but nothing for general set up or for using the other functions.
Summary: The setup instructions are completely incomprehensible so it took a little while to get going. It doesn't have wifi, so I connected it to my wifi router. I wasn't able to quickly set up scanning to a Samba share but FTP worked the first time. Printing from Windows 7 Home Premium works easily.
Summary: I was pleasantly surprised to see this high quality copier/fax/scanner was an Affordable price. The ink cartridges are about the size of a VHS tape which is definitely a big plus. I was using an HP office jet that had tiny cartridges that had to be replaced often.
Summary: The printer is fine. The functionality is poor. In order to use the single page feed slot, you have to go into the software and change the paper tray designation every time you want to use it. Also, the included scanning software is useless.
Amazing for me because those weekneses don't affect me

Summary: Pros: It prints great and fast. Solid build. Good price when paying 205$. It is a photocopy machine :) Con's: Big, heavy, no WiFi and scanner average quality. Drivers not as easy as could be. Overall happy because I don't mind the con's.
Summary: It works beautifully to copy, print and scan. Setup was a no-brainer on my network with a mixture of XP and Windows 7 machines. I just plugged it into the wireless router and ran the setup disk in each computer.
Summary: Other then the load on the circuits it is a great printer. I do dock them on their documentation which really is put together poorly. Usually I don't even read the documentation, however the administrator password was not working and nothing in the documentation talks about resetting it, I had to...
Summary: This is a great small business all-in-one model. Along with the usual copying and faxing features it is either a USB Printer and Scanner or a Network Printer and Scanner. There is a big difference. For USB you just follow the directions and it is all plug and play.
