Consumer review (newegg.com)

Love it! Another GREAT Newegg Deal.

 

For anyone looking for a color laser, I would definitely recommend this unit. The price is superb. It is very robust and should last many years. With the correct paper, photos print almost as well as photo injets, but at a vastly lower price per page.

High resolution - near photo quality. High duty cycle. Very robust & well made: very heavy. Excellent replacement for a worn out 600dpi Samsung color laser which died a premature death. Free shipping - 58lbs (gross weight). Very well packaged. Arrived...

Definitely needs a better written manual. Default paper setup was to ENVELOPE. Instructions very confusing (due to stilted English) in how to switch it to (various) paper sizes. Using it w/USB connection as wireless setup is odd.

Great Color Laser Jet

 

$99 for a color laser printer, how can you go wrong! I would definitely recommend this item!

Great Price, Dependable Brand, Entry Level Color Laser Printer. Arrived in a timely manner, installed and configured quickly.

WiFi was not the most intuitive interface I have seen to configure. Even after reading the documentation configuration was confusing. Perhaps because I used manual configuration in lieu of the automatic WiFi security (WPS) button. I never use the...

Great printer

 

I had issues with the wireless network connectivity, but the phone support (all in the USA) and the two service calls (free) finally got it sorted out. It was a tricky problem, I don't blame the machine, but I mention it because I was impressed that...

Excellent quality prints. Great for everyday color laser Great support.

Starter set of cartridges won't get past 600 prints, so don't dream of 1000 like they say.

Ricoh Aficio SP C250DN

 

Very easy to setup including the WIFI side for phone tablet etc. Print quality good from start and first print quite quick.

Nothing really available on the net to indicate how to set printing DPI. Ricoh customer services useless waste of time. Use the latest driver saves a lot of hassle.

Consumer review (reevoo.com)

Ricoh Aficio SP C250DN

 

It appears to be very well made, print quality is as good or slightly better than expected for a budget priced printer. Replacement cartridges are quite pricy, will look for offers on four-pack cartridge deals (1 of each of the four colours).

packaging could be more suited to recycling - use of cardboard inner packing rather than polystyrene - I would imagine is better for environment in terms of manufacture / recycling
