Good price for the printer, just a shame about the price of replacement toners

It may seem expensive. However, they last for 6500 pages, thus about 1,8 pence per page. Which is a lot cheaper than most other colour lasers.

I don't know anything about this printer thus I am not voting, sorry OP,

Great price, also it is another throw away printer.

if you click the accessories link on the op page you get those cheaper

Does this do duplex printing?
Some sites mention it, others dont
#7
Had this on order a couple of weeks ago then cancelled and ordered the Dell 1320CN on the strength of the total cost of ownership. The cost of replacing the toners for the Ricoh is just too much for a light/medium user imo and there just aren't the oem replacement toners out there as there are for the Dell. Shame as I really liked the look of this otherwise.

Be warned, also, Ricoh are apparently disputing the £20 cashback offer claiming it ended some time ago whilst Oyyy maintain it is still running. I really would get it clarified before you take the plunge.

No automatic duplex with this machine, you need the DN model for that.

does it comes with set of ink cartridges installed or we have to buy one?

It's a laser, so it uses toner cartridges. Comes with with one black and 3 colours, each with a capacity of up 1000 pages at 5% coverage.

thanks, i might sound bit silly, but is a laser printer good for printing promotional flyers with basic graphics?

I would say a laser printer would be ideal for that sort of publicarion, and cheaper to run in the long run than an inkjet with a moderate to heavy printing requirement. Be warned, though, you're going to get a shock when you see the price of the replacement cartridges for this. If you can stomach the criminal waste it's probably cheaper to throw it away and get another one when the starter cartridges run out.

Does anyone know if the toner cartridges can be refilled. Over £400 for toner is a rip off

There is a company that specialises in refill kits for this type of printer, it involved burning a hole into the cartridge, refilling and sealing, then re-chiping it so the printer would recognise it as new. It was certainly cheaper but still too expensive to justify the hassle imo. I'll try and track down the link.

I decided this just wasn't for me. As a light user the cheap Dell compatible toners just seemed like a better option in the long run.

It's still £175 for a refill + the mess of refilling.

Agreed, considering you can get a complete set of Dells for around £25 delivered (admittedly only 1000 page capacity) for a relatively light user it just seems a better option. Not sure what the shelf life is like for this refillable toner but I'm sure it was something like 2 years, which would mean I'd end up having to replace it way before I'd used it at the rate I print stuff (going by the 6500 page capacity Ricoh claim).

I use "thus" all the time and the way that commenter used it wasn't strange at all. Plus, if you're going to take the mick out of someone, it's "Shakespearean" ;-)

I doubt that. I know you misspelled that word; you don't know a thing about my intelligence.

WARNING: Just in case you were considering buying one of these from OYYY

I just had a dreadful experience with OYYY buying this printer.

I went to collect the printer from the depot... its' HUGE... not a personal sized one.

Got it home and... plugged it in... GRINDING wheels... noise... burning smell... clearly faulty right?

Quickly turned it off and wrote a polite notice to OYYY asking how to return it.

So what do you think they said? "Kindly call the manufactuer to repair it.", "The manufacturer's warranty states that you are to deal with Ricoh once it's been delivered."

Say what? Are these people for real?

Months later, and OYYY are still declining to pay the return postage of, wait for it £25 (due to the weight) when indeed they're liable to collect it, since when you reject the goods they remain OYYYs.

I've never experienced such snotty customer service. Now they're refusing to collect it.

What a bunch of jokers. Don't touch them with a bargepole.

Who fobs a new customer off to the manufacturer these days? Imbeciles. Why even waste your time over a measly £70?

Furthermore the cashback does not apply as advertised, it expired. So they're duping you with that too.

Honestly, I've never known any company treat a customer so bad. Stick with Amazon or EBuyer, who are doing Samsung (albeit B+W) lasers for £30 delivered, and have SUPERB customer support. They'd NEVER think of asking you to go to the manufacturer without offering to collect it first if it was their fault. NEVER.

This means you can get the Ricoh SP-C231N for the rediculously low price of £49.98 inc vat.
