Summary: Long term usage shows this is a great laser printer for a cheap price. I have had this model now for over 1 year. Pros: Quick warm up from idle Printing time per page is on par with most other laser printers (as in a lot quicker to print than inkjets, especially for multiple pages) Text quality is clear and crisp on actual text based prints, not so much for images. Works great for everything from Windows XP to Windows 8.1.
Excerpt: If you need an inexpensive light-duty printer, this thing works great.<br /><br />The down side is what happens when the initial toner (500 page starter model) runs dry. Replacements are close to $60 each, and impossible to find in town. The toner cartridges are also chipped, so you cannot refill without buying a replacement chip too. The local ink/toner refill store cannot even touch this thing.
Summary: I started using my Ricoh printer & copier for the first time and I like it. My main reason for buying it was because it is so compact. I only use it when I travel, so I have to pack it up and then set it up in my office space. It is lite weight, and I was surprise of the quality of the print. I had to remember that it was not the office printer, so be patience with it's speed, and that's only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating. Love It!
Summary: I still am in disbelief at the price I payed for a printer that will supposedly print 12,000 pages before I have to worry about a new cartridge!!! That being said know what you are buying, this printer is not deluxe, feature rich, high quality manufactured. I did test it with almost a full tray of paper and it did have some issues, although with 20 sheets in at a time, printing shipping labels for Amazon and eBay, this thing works like a charm.
Excerpt: This is a compact well designed small footprint laser printer. I use it to print letters and multiple documents that do not require color printing. Has usb connection only so I use with network usb print server. Has been reliable and replacement toner is very resonably priced, but I would caution prospective buyers that the starter cartridge that comes with the unit is rated at 500 copies and I would suspect the info on the replacement toner should state 1200 pages vs...
Summary: I ordered this printer brand-new. It was very affordable, so I thought I'd give it a try given Ricoh's reputation for quality products. It came with power cord, software, instructions, and toner only. I have to go get a USB cord for it at the local electronic store to test it out. So far the printer looks like it's good quality for the price, so I'm giving it 4 stars.
