Ricoh Aficio GX2500 Colour Gel Printer down to £44.99 at eBuyer - Was much more!

Found 14th Nov 2009
I'm not familiar with this type of printer but have just read through the details and customer feedback on eBuyer and it looks like it could be a great deal. Falls somewhere between an inkjet and a laser printer with some of the advantages of each. Most notably the prints are waterproof and printing speed is fast. Apparently it uses the same 'gel' technology as Ricoh's professional printers.

£13 price reduction from previous price but reviews suggest it was much more earlier. Possibly people have been put off by unfamiliarity and concerns about getting ink cartridges but buyers quoting numerous sources for the gels.

If you're in the market for a printer have a look at the reviews and you may decide it suits your needs. Would be great to hear from any HUKD members who have one.

Like the look of this for and the price is pretty good but running costs are in the region of 1.5p to 2.6p per page for black white and 10p to 12.5p for colour. If all you need is ink that doesn't wash off in the rain pretty well any Epson would be a cheaper bet, but if you're into serious graphics printing this might be a good option. If you can wait, then later generations of gel printers might have lower running costs.

Well, I first saw a Dye sublimation printer in the flesh in 1997, and like most other printing refills are no cheaper now than they were then!

I, for one won't be holding my breath :-(
