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). The "good" HP went dead one day without reason, so I went online to find a replacement. I settled upon this Ricoh and i've been happy ever since. On the old printer, we spent some $3000/yr on toner and maintenance.
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 controllable features, far more than I need). The only complaint I thought I had was resolved -- when I bought the printer I noted several reviews said the text quality was poor.
Summary: I have purchased many low end printers including the Samsungs. This printer has not had one bad issue, uses very litte toner and prints very high quality in B/W and Color. I have the same toner for 14 months and print daily. Great buy for the money.
Summary: No problems with my Ricoh CL3500N Color Laser printer, just in getting UPS to ring my doorbell to deliver the printer. The images, even printing faces, are better than I expected! Had a bit of trouble setting the printer up as a network stand- alone but easy to share as a printer attached to a single computer, and can easily share printer rights to my LAN. Excellent service from Amazon, as usual. I'm very happy!
Summary: We installed fourteen of these under our purview (college dorms) 10 months ago and our residents printed ~800,000 copies since. Pros: * They simply do not jam. I've run a printing operation serving 2500 residents for eight years and have never had a workgroup laserprinter be so reliable. * They work well in an 'open' printing environment. We us PostScript and accept about 25% of our jobs from Macs, 70% from PCs - mostly XPSP2, and 5% Linux.
