I haven't seen an all in one laser printer this cheap in a while.

It only has USB connectivity, not network, so may not be a good choice for some.

It comes with a starter toner (up to 1000 pages) and a non-OEM toner (2600 pages) on ebay is only £22.

2 year warranty.

I especially like the document feeder at the top for scanning or copying multiple pages at once. And you can scan to email and USB drive as well as to your computer.

Can't think of anything bad about this. Already ordered one.

- Print / Copy / Scan / Fax
- Print Mono 22ppm
- Manual Double Sided Printing
- Print Resolution 1200 x 600 dpi
- Scan Resolution 600 dpi
- 150 Sheet Input Tray
- USB 2.0 Connectivity
- 2 Year Warranty

You wanted a colour all-in-one laser at this price?

Looks like good spec for a laser printer.

I want one, my canon mg6150 refuses to even print black and white without full colour cartridges, and it just wastes ink cleaning the nozzles everytime you power it up.

Would this be more cost effective, I dont really print a lot, maybe a few pages a week. Would this be ideal for me?

Aside from the fact that this only prints b&w, I think this would be ideal for you. The toner doesn't dry like ink cartridges do so you can print as infrequently as you like and there's no cleaning required. It's extremely cost effective.. a few pages a week - you probably won't need to change the toner for at least a year or 2.

black and white, lol...dunce

Been trying to get the mother in law off inkjets for years - perhaps this will tempt her

good find, feeder is a plus.

Good find

Good price for all in one mono

Looks good. Standard 1500 page refill is more expensive than the printer but a refill kit is under £20.

Used to be a Groupon deal at £59.99 and is on Amazon at £54.99

Great price! Heated

Toners more than the unit

I bought a cheap Ricoh laser (well, two - one as a spare), and the drivers are difficult to install and rather flakey. Also, the paper feed is very poor. It mis-feeds over 10% of the time, which means at least one jam on any longish documents. Overall, not worth the effort involved, and I recommend getting a better brand that simply works.

Good find.

Surely not the right printer for a job like this as only has manual duplexing.

Also how long will it last at that volume? Duty cycles are notoriously arbitrary and mostly are set so that the printer doesn't generate warranty claims within the manufacturer's warranty period.

Components wear out on the total page count rather than how quickly they get there (think: what is stopping you doing all 20K in one print run once per month?), so all the duty cycle is trying to do is to make sure you don't reach that total too quickly otherwise they will have to shell out on repairs/replacement. Personally I'd like to see printer manufacturers move to a page/image equivalent of MTBF (e.g. mean volume before failure 200K images).

If you have a parish mag that uses 20k printed pages a month, then send them our way to do their printing!

An example of using a cheap £50 printer to print stuff in B/W was all the comment was for, to show their worth, 2 of our StreetGB's have got 14 between them from this thread.. as a 4 in 1 plus high res who cares if it can do 2k or 200k, it's £50!

Fully understand your volume remark, as components are very expensive, but for this particular offer, you can buy 2 and chuck 1 if it breaks!

It worry's me that there is only one advert on ebay for a refill and non on Amazon. I like the printer but would worry about getting refills at a cheaper price then the unit cost?. Am I worrying for nothing?. I've also not heard of Ricoh before.

@andykapa

Why don't you find us a decent colour laser for that price? Other STFU with your stupid comment.

I hate troll-cases (portmanteau of "internet troll" and "nutcase") who make comments without thinking.

GOOD - HOT items HEAT added - Thank you Guys

Did anyone get this printer? Looking for feedback as I might get it.

how on earth am I meant to get his to work on Windows 7?. It all seems for complex. I'm used to just installing a driver and another for the scanner????. Help please?/.

I just put in the CD in and followed the instructions. Don't plug the USB in until you are prompted.

No usb cable supplied. How cheap is that? Doesn't even seem to be a standard usb slot on the printer, so god knows where you'd find one to fit. Why would companies sell you a printer without a vital component? No instruction manual (although someone on here kindly posted a link for an online one). Returning it to Box.

I bought it and am regretting it. No usb cable supplied and it isnt a standard usb slot on the printer, the manual if you could call the couple of scraps of paper that come with it is indecipherable diagrams. I'm packing it up to return it. Piece of crap.

I have purchased this. It was annoying to have not received a USB cable but luckily I had one lying around. It seems many printers are not coming with a USB cable to keep costs down. They are indeed as standard as USB cables come - USB A to B cable - and can be purchased from ebay for a quid. I agree, the diagrams could have been better explained but not a deal breaker. And I guess there was no hard copy of the complete manual, again to keep costs down.

Price went up to £60.

Expired, old, why don't people clean up their posts?

The advert clearly staes that this is a scanner as well but having purchased this i can see that the scanner function is not on this model SP204SF. Box are advertising it still as a printer scanner

I can't recall if there is a scan button on the printer itself but I know that you can scan from the computer.

Thanks. Cant see any mention of it in the online manual though.
