Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good print quality, seems very robust. Was very easy to install and set-up. Built-in duplexing is a big bonus. Haven't used it long enough to comment on reliability but as this is in reality a small office printer, I would expect that to be good... This printer is exceptional value for money.
Bad points:
A bit noisy and needs space around it for ventilation. I've had ones which are quicker to warm-up, but it's not that bad. Not sure if you can print direct from Android tablet (installed andriod print app, but can't get it to find and connect to the printer, Ricoh website doesn't list this model as compatible with the app...)

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
1 - Cheap colour laser printer with pretty good output that also does duplex.
2 - Photo printing is good for a laser printer probably not as good as an inkjet photo printer with more cartridges but it was not bought for that.
3 - The replacement cartridges seem to be around £50 to £60 for originals so about average.
4 - When in standby mode it is silent and you can adjust when it goes into standby, default is 10 mins but we have changed it to 5.
Bad points:
1 - The driver disk that comes with the printer seems to cause a "Com surrogate error" on boot up with my Windows 8 machine. It took a while to track down that the printer driver was causing the issue. the fix was to uninstall the printer and re-install with the latest driver from the Ricoh website, this seems to have fixed the problem.
2 - There appears to be no native support for printing from a Linux machine only Windows or Macs but we will have to do a bit more digging to see if we can find a solution
