Ricoh SP 213SUw Wireless A4 Mono Laser 3-in-1 MFP  : Nice printer – wifi set up is a bit challenging but worked out fine eventually.

Using a pc running windows 8. 1, the install was fine albeit a tad annoying, but it was up and running wirelessly it’s retained a perfect connection. (however trying to set it up on a mac was non-existent, unless you just used usb where it can auto-detect it. ) i’m grateful ricoh supply an install cd, because when i first received this i had jnly just moved in and had no broadband service. I’ll be using this machine mainly for the scanning function rather than printing (it’ll literally print invoices, notes, word documents… nothing particuarly important). The scanning is pretty smooth, giving very clear results. (you can adjust the settings manually or just use the default settings which i’m sure will be fine for anyone in an admin office environment. ) with that said, the b&w print results are clear, and being a laser, the ink is dry almost instantaneous. Greyscale tones are okay, but if you really want to be printing works of art gpo and buy another machine.

This is a fairly impressive printer that comes in an equally impressive box. It’s smart, sleek and has the cube design that would fit into most home offices. It’s also not particularly heavy – or at least not as heavy as you might expect it to be based on its size. It’s easy to get everything started, the instructions are clear and the panel easy to navigate. Simply plugging the usb from the printer to the computer was all that was needed to get the printing started. I honestly wanted to write more about the positive aspects of the printer but it was at this point that i realised that there was one major problem with the printer – setting up the wifi. My main computer is a macbook and wireless printing is something that is all but essential as i use it all around the house rather than just at my desk. The instructions to start printing wirelessly seem quite clear, there’s even a quick guide to help get you started. The first problem i encountered is that i’m using an apple router which the printer didn’t seem to like.

Very good print quality excellent for home use as a basic printer.

Ricoh sp 213suw wireless a4 mono laser 3-in-one. This machine needed building up to function. I found it very difficult to even understand what it said. Ever tried flat pack furniture?. Eventually we got it up and runningonce we had settled down and calmed our nerves we tried it out. This is a 3-in-one scan copy print. It worked extremely well but as it is only black and white only really for printing documents and letters. Probably good for a black and white photo.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good basic printer
  • Wireless is an issue
  • Nice printer – wifi set up is a bit challenging but worked out fine eventually.

Without doubt a product essential home ?.

    Nice printer – wifi set up is a bit challenging but worked out fine eventually. . A nice neat footprint multifunction printer. As with other printers it’s setting up wifi that causes problems. Printing via usb cable is easy. You install the drivers from the cd, plug in the cable between the printer and laptop and off you go. (top marks for ricoh for providing a cable with the printer). However setting up the wifi is not very straightforward and took a few tweaks, niggles and reboots before i got it working. At the time of writing i still don’t have the scanner working wirelessly and will continue trying to fix that and report back to the review. I am indebted to kermovan who submitted this answer to a review of the ricoh sp 213 printer as using his instructions was essential to me getting it up and running. *****************t’s a two step process – first you need to get your printer connected to your router/hub and then secondly ensure that your laptop can connect to the printer (by adding the printer using the ip address option – i tried initially by using the wireless option but it couldnt find the printer).
