Good printer, bad ricoh service, don't buy from them
28 November 2014
Summary: The printer did a good job when it works. Until I upgraded my OS to window 8. Ricoh do not provide new driver for newer window OS. The latest driver they support was window 7 issued around 2010. I bought this printer on 2008 when vista was the latest OS at the time.
Summary: It's a pretty good printer if you can afford to keep it filled with toner. Each toner cartridge cost between $80 and $100 each time you change one out. It has four colors and black. It will not work at all if one of the colors is out. With that being said...it does print fast and with high quality.
Summary: I got this for $375 (delivered) though Amazon's warehouse deals. The box arrived in horrible shape but the printer miraculously survived. The damage to the box was worse than Fed Ex could have done in one shipment so I suppose it was discounted due to the box damage.
Summary: The concept behind this machine is great. They have put in all you need to run a small office. It is quite simple to use, the program is good once it is installed properly and overall it works well. You will love it for the first month (thought the color print is never very good).
Summary: After reading reviews I was concerned about the noise this machine could make; however, after installing and using the machine, it is no louder than any other laser we've had in our office (2 brothers and an HP). Lasers are just louder on warmup. The print quality is excellent.
Summary: I needed a multi-function device for my small business. After some research, I settled on Ricoh based on some of the reviews here and else where. The setup as a stand-alone system was easy and it took less than 20 minutes.
Summary: I purchased this for a small office in 09/06 during a sale at Staples. We set it up, and started to print some sample documents. WOW, was it loud. It sounded like the ink cartridges were being hit with a hammer against the front cover!
Summary: the mac support from ricoh and their affiliates (Lanier AC031cn & Gestetner SP C210SF) is essentially nil. ricoh supplies a basic printer driver. Currently, the following features DO NOT work on a mac: 1) full color twain-compliant scanning 2) copy to file, email or ocr 3) scan to file, email or...
