Found out..


The main issue in terms of running cost is cost of replacement toner modules which run out at anything between £40-60 each!

Great price and was tempted until I saw the toner prices, compatable cartridges around £40 each, originals around £60 each.

Heat given for price, but not for me.......

Great for at home, if you print just a dozen or so pages a month. Just don't bother with replacing the toners. The generic ones are 5 to 6 times as expensive as the ones for my old Dell colour laser.

That's my take on it too. I print very little so it'll last me a long time
When the toners run out I'll check the current costs, if I don't like the prices then printer becomes landfill. I'm sure that I'll have had £50 of value from it by then

Toner carts supplied with the printer are the stater versions rated circa 1000 pages. Standard & high capacity replacements seem to have typical capacity circa 1600 & 2300 pages respectively.

Be warned: this is very HEAVY! It weighs 27kg. I have a similar model. I don't print much so I probably won't bother replacing toners as it's not economical. Good printer.

This seems to be available to all not just Prime members?

Toner's are around the £30 mark for compatibles - want the genuine article and you'll pay as much as you did for the printer again. Also remember that the toner included will not be a standard full one. It will be a "starter toner" with about half the capacity of the replacements.

You can get refill kits for the cartridges surely?

Fantastic deal thank you

It is like ink jets all over again. Cheap to buy the printer but costs two printers for consumables.

I just find it hard to print from pdf or vouchers.
really annoying!

There's always a way to do it on the cheap, people aren't daft. ;)

Any recommendations for a cheap colour laser printer that takes cheap replacement toners? I'm not the keenest on trying to refill them, would rather buy a cheap compatible toner if possible! Currently got the Ricoh mono and it's great, apart from the fact that it doesn't (obviously!) print colour, and as toner is due for replacement I might be as well going for a new printer altogether.

Dell/samsung printers are much better with cheaper compatible toners

I've had this printer for a while now and for the price it's been great. Only issue, as mentioned already, is the price of replacement toners. To save money we have been refilling the original toners, but this also requires the toner chip replacing too.

is that easy and how many times can you do it/how much for chip n refill?

Can get a full set of compatible cartridges for my Dell printer for under £20. Just saying.

It's a messy job but pretty simple to do. I got the toner and chip from http://www.tonertopup.co.uk, which works out at around £20 for a bottle of toner which will do around two top ups and £6 for the chip.

Only decent cheap one was the Dell 1760nw. Stocks are virtually gone now as Dell has ceased production in the autumn. Next best is the Dell c2660dn - around the £130 mark. Big as this Ricoh but does duplex. A set of 4 toners runs to £40 odd but are higher capacity than this printer. Otherwise, mono seems to be your best bet. Plenty to choose from there.

Thanks! The mono is fine for 90% of the junk that gets printed like travel confirmations, but the eldest has just started secondary school with various homework assignments requiring colour print, so I'm forever running in to work to print out colour pages, not too bad at the moment but I guess it will get worse as he progresses. A colour version is definitely in the pipeline for the next one, I'll just keep an eye on all these deals in the meantime and hopefully something will pop up that's not too expensive. £130 is just a bit too much at this time of the year while I've got a working one at home. Maybe should do more research into refilling old toners.

looking for a new printer as the Kodak range of printers is a total rip off.

You cannot use your own ink as it has a chip and it decides when the cartridge needs changing when the prints are perfect. AVOID Kodak printers at all costs and look at others. My kodak printer is being sent back to kodak head office after Xmas as i am disgusted with their shoddy service.

So heat for this Ricoh printer as it looks like what i need.

I have the non-wireless version of this printer I picked up for £30. For that money I never intend to bother with consumables, I'll just bin it. It's definitely more of a workhorse than something that will print pretty images though - if pictures/photographs are your intention then get a quality ink jet and a CIS.

You can't pull the rip off chip from the old cartridge just?

I have a Brother HL-L8250CDN which is good for bang for buck. Does 2 pages on one and is duplex (both sides) 2400dpi. Got it on a cash back sale for less than £100 some time back using hukdeals

They sell toner refill kits for £15-£20

Why?

A full set of refills is around £47 inc the chips. That would give you around 2000 prints at 5%. Seems much better value than the 700 or so prints from the £30 it originally cost you.

Unfortunately no, the chip on the side counts how much toner has been used and then 'kills' the cartridge. In short, they are a one shot deal.

Got one from box.co.uk when they last come round. Great printer but a shame about the toner cost.

Use 75% of the provided cartridge, sell the printer for £30 with a few hundred pages of toner left, buy another printer with full toner.

Any of you guys know much about the Ricoh toners? I've currently got the SP213w mono (around £30 a few months ago) and the toner low light started flashing, so I looked on ebay and bought a part-used genuine one (apparently his printer had broken so was selling the toner with 50-60% remaining), thinking it might be better than a compatible, however when I put it in the toner light just goes on to indicate 'toner set incorrectly' and it won't work at all. The old cartridge still works (still showing low but printing fine). The seller was great and refunded, and told me just to chuck it, but it seems a shame and a waste. Is it likely to be the chip that's at fault, do they register themselves to the machine they're in or something like that?

Buy a replacement chip off the bay will work then.

Can you please link to the set of toners you referred to. I could only find costlier ones. Thanks

Not really clued up on these sort of things.....would I be able to print direct from an Ipad to one of these? Cheers
