Great little printer. Good find.
Had one of these for a year or so. Set up was a bit fiddly but very pleased with it indeed. Think I paid a similar price after seeing a deal on here. Voted hot.
Good printer, had mine over a year and yet to run out of ink from the OE cartridge.
Just bear in mind setting up the Wifi connection to your network can be tricky. USB connection is straightforward. Plenty of online articles to help. Hot.
Has been as cheap as £15 and often below 25, so maybe worth waiting a bit.

Have had this for a couple years and its a good little printer, but as above, the wireless installation is a nuisance with limited support by the manufacturer, but once it works its fine.

Very good deal.

Had one of these, it stopped working before the first toner ran out.
Great for infrequent use as there's no ink cartridge to dry out by the time you need to use it again like I used to have with inkjets

This, one big advantage to laser printers. The amount of printers that I've thrown away due to nozzels having blocked tubes due to ink is stupid. I understand you potentially can clean them out but it's just far more beneficial to buy a laser printer like this or an inkjet printer which has the print head built-in to the cartridge.

One thing I will say is, this printer has rubbish support for Linux/MacOS. I know there's the third-party drivers floating around but I find once the printer goes to sleep I can't then re-print using Mac. I have to restart the printer manually.

I was snooping around in the WebUI and it seems Ricoh use a display: none; attribute to hide tabs within the Web UI. One of these is the energy saver or similar tab if I recall which allows you... I think... to turn off auto-sleep.
Mine won't print on Microsoft edge and chrome. Something wrong with the software? Im using windows 10
Had mine for 18 months or so as a home based worker. On my 4th toner (last up to 2600 pages which I think is accurate). Replacements from Amazon - doitwiser.

Very impressed.

mine has worked very well for a year, on windows 10
Great find
Anyone know if there is a similar colour version with cheap toner?
Ordered 2 and got free delivery
Had this for about a year now, its fantastic. Its a bit fiddly to setup if you do not know what you're doing but there's plenty of resources/forums online if you get stuck. There's a compatible toner cartridge on amazon for £20 2600 pages capacity
I had an earlier version of this printer. Great laser printer for the price
OMG this is a ridiculous price! Defo buy this over an inkjet. I would snap this up if I didn't already have a laser printer!
Of course it's not colour, but to be honest if I want colour photos I get something like snapfish to print them for me (you just can't compete at home for the price!)
Now all we need is a cheap colour version!Heat added btw
Just pulled the trigger. Don't forget 1% cashback through Quidco 🤑
Any laser aio? Ie with a scanner built in? I used to have a Samsung one for £70 ish.
Too bad I need a photocopier with it too and preferably colour!
Hot anyway (go with the noise)
Dont expect 700 pages, my 1st lasted around 170 but ricoh good enough to replace as it also had issue gripping paper. 2nd toner is also now flagging up low after 200 pages or light use ebay invoices, works well tho just need to find cheap toner.
Wanted to know why people don't understand how to use personal pronouns. Visited this page to learn more.
Personally, I had to bite at this price. Wished I could spell better and was clever enough to understand what a pronoun was. I'd google it but I have the memory of a goldfish so learning it would be pointless
Thanks Apeds
Can anyone as use what a good price would be for a colour laser printer of similar quality and affordability (in terms of replacement cartridges etc)?
This looks like a decent deal. Anyone know if it works fine as a shared printer connected to a Mac? I have an app installed called printopia that I used for an old all-in-one that didn’t support AirPrint.

Seem to spend a few quid on hp301 cartridges; perhaps a laser is more cost effective?

Do you have to set it up as a shared printer? It is wireless so should be available from anywhere, although I have no knowledge of Macs or their limitations. Regarding HP301's, I am not disposing my HP3050 all-in-one, just going to use it in future for scanning to my laptop. Happy to not have to buy cartridges for it anymore.
Grabbed one, thanks!
Would anyone have a link for compatible ink? Thanks.

Go to Amazon.co.uk and type "Ricoh SP 213w" into Amazon search box
Thanks op, ordered
deals gone
Took me 10 minutes to unbox and connect via wi-fi. Reserved the IP on the router before creating a new TCP/IP port on my laptop with the reserved address, then installed the latest driver that I got from Ricoh website. Well pleased with it.
Very pleased with the printer - thanks OP

Did struggle with the wifi a bit. If you have installed with the USB, which you do to initially get the IP address and get driver installed, you then have to un-install and then re-install using the IP address

Instructions below are from a question on Amazon reviews and worked for me.......good luck!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Install the Driver and Smart Organising Monitor (SOM) from the CD ( Use Quick USB Install option), as Kermorvan says.
(Follow the on screen instructions - Don't plug the USB in until told).
When done, and keeping the printer On and the USB cable connected, open the SOM (- easy way is to open a page in Wordpad etc, select Print, Preferences, and click SOM button which you should now find there under the Ricoh tab.)
In SOM, click User Tools, Printer Configuration, and enter the access code in the box (Admin) - its case sensitive.
Select the Wireless tab, and enter your Router info on the right hand side (SSID name, Authentication Mode (WPA on mine), Encryption Type (TKIP on mine), and WPA Passphrase, then OK. The printer should then be connected to your Router. ( I did it this way beacuse clicking the WPS button as Kermorvan suggests to connect automatically didn't work for me...)
Click the Configuration Page tab to print out and note the TCP/Ip address of the printer ( should be 192.168.1.something, or similar).
Disconnect the USB cable, and close the SOM.
Then follow the last two paragraphs of Kernovan's notes again to get the computer to recognise the printer - ie uninstall the USB install of the printer in Settings, and then re-install it there (Add New Printer). You will need the IP address to do this ( the Port number should be filled automatically when you enter the IP address, and is the same set of numbers.). You may need to re-select the Driver - I did - click the manufacturer name and select the model - it should ask whether to use the installed driver ( you installed it at the beginning) - so say Yes.
It should then offer to print a test page, and finish, and then work !
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


On a completely different matter - it looks like the page to register your warranty (within 14 days) is here
ricoh.co.uk/sup…tml
Unfortunately it no longer lists this printer - at least not that I can see.....

The IP address can be found on your router's config webpage (eg 192.168.1.1) so you may not need to install the printer via usb first.
