Summary: I bought this for my mother for a Mother's day gift. It did not work properly from the minute we pulled it out of the box. It jammed all the time. Since Amozon outsourced this product, it came to us from an outside vender, who told us we could not return it, if we put the toner in. How can you check it out if you don't put the toner in.
Summary: This printer does work some of the time. Very sensitive to paper type and lousy for printing both sides. Once the paper is run through once, it will not receive to print on the other side. Buy cheap get cheap.
Summary: This printer is not good for Ricoh's reputation. Cheap and not very good. We never used "toner save" because the print is grey rather than black, and the other evening the printer just stopped working. No warning signs of print uneven-ness or blotchiness. Just stopped in middle of print run. Not easy to find out what was wrong i.e. no "toner out" light. Luckily I had bought 2 of these printers cheap from eBuyer, so slotted in the toner from the second printer.
OK if you want something cheap and will just replace it when toner runs out.

Summary: I don't like it - but it is cheap and does the job. Lasted about a year of my home office type printing (receipts, a few emails etc.) before running out of toner.I am now on my second printer as it was cheaper to buy an entire new printer than to buy replacement toner. I then freecycled the old one (someone else can have the expense of buying new toner or can work out how to refill the depleated one). Note: I always have the toner save option on!
Summary: Was pleased with this cheap printer but it has run out of toner after 300 or so pages. The cheapest replacement cartridge I can find is around £70. Ridiculous. Do I just chuck the printer and buy another? What a waste of resources. Just about sums up our society in a nutshell.
Summary: I bought this as a second printer, already have a Colour ink jet but it is expensive to use for everyday printing so I bought this mono laser printer. First glance it is a nice looking printer with easy operating switches. I set it up, loaded the disc into my pc and then switched the printer on. Nothing, not a thing, no light, no mechanical noise, nothing. I tried another lead but no difference.
Cons: Куплен для домашнего использования. Чтобы копировать бумажки для инстанций, иногда распечатывать нужный текст на принтере. В начале использования периодически косячил полосками, печатал текст криво, когда затягивал бумагу, она уходила вбок и получался кривой текст. Качество напечатанного текста сносное, но мой прежний дешёвенький самсунг печатал однозначно лучше. Сканирует на 4. Сбоев со сканером не было. Спустя год он совсем перестал печатать в хоть сколько-нибудь но...
