Excellent printer, quiet, fast and very goof print quality. Too early to tell if cost per copy is as claimed. My only problem is that selecting other than A4 plain paper results in 'change your paper setting' message and only A4 appears to work.

For its low cost the Ricoh SP C231N is an excellent compact colour laser printer capable of producing a high quality photo image print, (my own use so far has included wedding photos and calendar pages).

It will print on upto 160gsm (thin card) but the tight print feed path means that 200gsm card is likely to cause a jam.

The advanced printer settings are descriptive rather than of a specific resolution, ie it does not say 600 x 600 or 600 x 1200 etc, but 'Standard, High quality, Best quality'.

Speed of prints per minute is slower than my previous konica magicolor 5430dl, but as I'm seldom printing hundreds of pages at 'Best quality' this doesn't unduly bother me.

When a toner cartridge becomes empty the printer stops printing, and there is no setting to override this, so how much residual toner is wasted, I can't say.

What is somewhat irritating is when changing from paper to card stock - as well as changing the setting in the printer preferences the change has also to be updated on the printer's menu or by logging in to the printer's browser Image Monitor).

Also there appears to be no setting for printing on transparencies, meaning that I have to return to my old printer for this.

One reason for buying this, in addition to its advetised low cost per page, is because the colour drum is integrated with the toner cartridge, thus the toner cartridges are the only major consumable for replacment (other than the waste toner bottle), and the availablity of 6,000 page capacity cartridges also helped sell it to me.

I hope that this printer will serve me faithfully for a good few years.

Review Solid, reliable unit and a good price

Have bought several of these for office use and have had no issues whatsoever. More importantly, no support calls from our remote offices yet. Price per page is one of the best on the list too. This printer is very heavy compared to most, so take care moving it!
