Ricoh Aficio SG2100n

 

A gel inkjet printer for less than £60

High duty cycle ; ECOnomy colour mode ; Made from eco-friendly plastics

Very optimistic speeds ; High running costs ; Hard to read LCD display

Installation is very straightforward, with a comprehensive driver and a user guide being the only substantial software. The four ink cartridges slide easily into slots behind a cover on the right hand side of the paper tray.

Ricoh Aficio SG-2100N review

 

An evolution, a revolution, or a dud of a printer?

Very cheap ; Great print quality for the price ; Relatively well-featured

Can't take high capacity colour cartridges

For the asking price, this is a little marvel of a printer, and one which should definitely be on your shopping list if you're after a true bargain.

Despite promising claims, the Aficio SG 2100N is neither as fast as a laser nor as cheap to run as an inkjet

Ricoh Aficio SG 2100N review

The Aficio SG 2100N provides good performance for such an inexpensive printer, and Ricoh's Geljet technology does work well when printing colour graphics on plain paper. Unfortunately, its high running costs make it harder to recommend – even for basic...

A Colour Printer : Ricoh Aficio SG 2100n

 

In the past I have checked out numerous All-in-One, Multifunction and standalone printers, either of the inkjet or laser variety, from various manufacturers. On this occasion, however, the printer under the microscope is the first printer product that...

With dimensions of 395 x 360 x 215mm (W x D x H), the Aficio has a sturdy and solid box-like appearance. Predominately black in colour, with white front and rear face plates, this printer’s connection options are located on the left side of the unit....

Ricoh Aficio SG2100N A4 Colour GelJet Printer

 

Very inexpensive printer with quick print speed. Can't comment on photographic printing quality as not bought for this purpose.

Ink looks expensive if replacing all cartridges. May be worthwhile buying a completely new printer!
