Wouldn't recomend it for business use

Summary: I had a brother printer I used in my office at work for a few years that finally died and since I have always been really happy with our Ricoh scanner/copier/printer floor units, I decided to try this printer and regret it. Paper tray broke after 10 days.
Summary: This machine creates a beautiful print, but so many of it's components need to be replaced so often each print costs a fortune. If you call Ricoh they glibly state that it is just standard maintenance, even though none of the parts get even close to their stated life-span.
Summary: When I first purchased this printer I was pleased with ease of setup, its speed, and its quality - a good deal for the price of $500.00. Fast forward 1 and 1/2 years and the printer started putting vertical cyan streaks on the output.
Printer is just a way for Ricoh to suck hundreds of dollars from your wallet

Summary: This is a FANTASTIC printer. Reliable, clear printing, a work horse although it doesn't double print without an expensive add on. But, you have to replace everything all the time. I think their toners come half empty and we have had to replace the photoconductor unit for both the color and black and...
Summary: Welcome to the DISPOSABLE COLOR LASER PRINTER! Had this printer for over a year now, 22,000 prints so far. When it does print well the prints are nice, but once something needs replacing you may as well throw it out and buy a new printer.
Summary: I work in a small office (~10 people) and we don't have a lot of money to spare. We have two printers, one is a leased $20,000 copy-machine from HP, and until I got this Ricoh, the other printer was a "good" HP (~$900).
Summary: I bought this printer 3 years ago at Amazon.com. Seemed like a good deal. After the first 2700 pages I needed a black cartridge and a PCU. 1900 pages later I need another Photoconducter Unit. I mostly print in black and white.
Summary: Had the printer a month. Started getting a white sheet down the side. The photoconductor unit is causing it but on EVERY site, EVERY sheet, it claims that the photoconductor unit is good for 15,0000 impressions, of which we got 3,000. When you bring this up to Ricoh, you know the whole routine...
Summary: I bought the Ricoh Aficio CL3500 about 6 months ago. It's been dead reliable, with no paper jams. I'm running the printer mostly from Macintoshes (MacOS X 10.4) and have found the drivers to be fine, with good control (you can put the printer into B&W or Color mode, with 15 printer-specific...
