Summary: I started using this machine for our real estate office and is working easy like breeze,less time for scanning color or black using ADF and easy to view in the page maker .I could be able to buy this machine far less than the other leading brands for this color lase with scanner.
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. And that HP machine never worked properly. My original HP lazer 3 in 1 worked perfectly, but was old and not compatable with my Mac. This works great for my small office.
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. It was recognized each time as a printer and TWAIN was activated for use as a scanner by my image processing software - Irfanview.
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. If you have a router in the same room as printer no more WiFi problem. For the scanner I think it is necessary to connect USB only doesn't work on network mode.
Summary: Bypass tray always creates a paper jam. Will not print envelopes. Will not print on any unusual size paper. The fax will not receive a fax or you have an answering machine. The support answers in a short wait and you can easily understand them but they had no answers. Maybe if you had your own support or it staff they could overcome all these problems. If all you need is a color printer and copier, and you only use 8 1/2 by 11 paper this is a great machine.
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. Also, don't understand the scan issues some have reported.
