This is my first deal so be gentle. 54.99 after cashback. 89.99 otherwise. Looks to be well reviewed and toner refills are not too expensive.

Wireless and duplex as well, can't get a better deal - worth just trying out!

Also available on Amazon for the same price with Prime next day delivery and cashback through ricoh-promotions.com/gb/…ome

How much are toner refills?

£12.82 per colour (x4) on eBay for just the refills, so quite pricey I'd say.

​That's not pricey, genuine ink jets cost way more.

​Also it's on a par with liquid ink refills which will give you nowhere near the number of prints. So cost per printed page will be significantly lower.

Who is voting this cold?! It's crazy-cheap for a full-feature colour laser printer. Thanks for posting OP.

​Of course genuine ink jet ink costs more, but that's an apples to oranges comparison. If you use ink refills (a fair comparison), the cost is miniscule. However, we're talking about a laser printer, not inkjet here.

£12.89 per colour on a refill basis IS pricey. For example, full colour sets for a Dell C1760NW can be had for less than £14, so nearly 75% cheaper.

I think that it's the same price at Amazon

​This might be a silly question but is Amazon an official Ricoh retailer?

About the same again for a set of compatible toners...
Not voting either way but seems like false economy to me.

Bit of stupid comparison, as they are not relative

That's actually a good question.. I'm not sure, I've emailed for clarification as on the Amazon iPhone app it mentions the cashback deal but that isn't mentioned on the normal website.

Is there a link for the replacement cartridges please?
Would like to confirm price of toner before buying.
Thanks to the OP fir the deal.

I have the 240DN (£36.59 in a recent deal) and it's a decent printer. The prints are not vibrant (it's a colour laser...) but perfectly acceptable.

Be warned it is very large and heavy, if you need something compact then check the dimensions!

This or the Dell?

Anyone found a good colour laser mfp as an alternative? The Mrs demands the ability to photocopy...

Yeah maybe right, but how many pages it can print? Some printer have bigger tonners hence more expensive as do more pages?

I have the dell - spot on printer and full set of toners cost me £18

Main downside of the Dell is that it is not duplex.

A gotcha with most all-in-one printers is that even if the printer is duplex, the automatic document feeder is not, so to copy from double-sided originals you need to use the glass and turn them over manually.

Is there any issue with toner cartridge chips? Just looking at the eBay listings, the toner refills are also offered with or without chips, which suggests those need resetting/replacing periodically.

Depends what you mean by good. A good price or good quality. No doubt you want both X)

Around £150 seems to be the going rate, but all seem to have expensive toners/refills. There is a Lexmark CX310DN from buyer at £115, but toners are even more expensive at around £40 each.

yeah good value/a good deal, not necessarily lowest price but non-extortionate consumables and decent print quality etc, ideally (coincidentally...) £150 or less as that's the max I had in my head. Duplex would be nice but not an absolute deal breaker.

What the difference getting this versus a cheaper inkjet printer?

Brought from Amazon, even saved £4.50 with my student prime account

With this, your ink doesn't dry up because you haven't used it in the past week

It would be rude not to buy at this price

And your printouts don't smudge. And it's faster. And it costs less to run. But it won't print photos well.

Really, all this information is readily available if you search for it.

Sounds like a great deal for a colour duplex laser printer. Voting hot.

I fix laser printers please be careful manufacturers are way clever than what people realise. Usually the cartridges will be starters without chips so you will to pay for chips plus a toner refil. Laser printers do not work like an inkjet, toner contains many different compounds and the particle sizes are completely different. If its a drum and toner in one the unit will probably be made so it cant be refilled so you'll need atleast 1 genuine set. Good luck ><.

Good spot. I vote hot.

Looks like a good deal upfront, but the end of the first review on amazon from somebody who was given the printer for free states:
".... The replacement cost for the the four toner cartridges is £185.42 at cartridge save .co.uk . At a cost of £101 for the printer, it means it might be cheaper to replace the printer than replace the toner. This could be a limiting factor in purchasing this printer but the print quality is amazingly good"

You can run these cheaply if you dont mind getting a little dirty, i have the older 220 from ricoh and am an engineer, the chips are under 15 for a set, just because its says its empty, doesnt mean it is, they use coverage/print total to calculate end of life, usually loads left after it says its out, just rechip and press onwards.
The drum which makes the image is usually good for X2 orX3 the life of cartridge, unfortunately, when the unit runs low on toner, they want you buy a new one, when all it really needs is a chip and sometimes a toner top off. Ricoh uses all in one cartridges to reduce footprint of machine, you can buy other laser colour printers that just take a little toner box, but they are usually larger machines due to the technology involved, same with adding duplexing, hey, this stuff takes extra room to fit inside!

Hot from me. Absolutely crazy price !!!!
The price of the fuser unit alone is more than the price of this printer.
A must buy for anyone in the market for a colour laser printer.
Perfect colour prints that wont smudge at the first drip of water.

Just checking: are those chips compatible with this model? Being later, another step in the arms race has occurred...
