Ricoh SP204SFN A4 Mono Multifinction Laser Printer – The instructions you get are next to useless so i downloaded the full instructions from ricoh website

Beware of memory issues when scanning using adf. For the price it’s an excellent printer. Quality is good and it’s fast. As some others have said setting it up can be very tricky. I couldn’t simply go into windows and add the printer or the scanner using the ip address (after having installed the driver). Also there is no scanner utility so you have to define a network share and configure the scanner to use the location when defining profile. It’s easier to scan to a usb flash drive but then adds the extra step of copying it into correct location. The major issue i had was with the auto feeder for scanning documents. At 300 dpi, it kept complaining the memory was full only after 3 pages and gave me options to save what was scanned and stop the job or simply cancel the entire operation. This was both when using a usb drive and a network location so it wasn’t the bandwidth issue.

The instructions you get are next to useless so i downloaded the full instructions from ricoh website. I bought this because we use ricoh printers at work and they never go wrong , one of the printers is in a sawmill with no heating and very dusty and works every time. I was very hesitant about buying this printer as it doesn’t say it is windows 10 compatible but it does work on my toshiba satellite running a pre installed windows 10. The instructions you get are next to useless so i downloaded the full instructions from ricoh website. It took several attempts to install all the drivers from the disc you must make sure the printer is turned off and not connected when you start to install , it wouldn’t load at as it sent some files to my old printer queue , but once i emptied the document queue it then installed all the drivers , prints documents from computer and scans from scanner to computer to save the scanned document on your pc. A bargain for the price but installing can be a nightmare. Windows 10 does not recognize the printer if you plug it in , but strangely it did recognize my older epson ink jet printer and loaded all the drivers without even asking,.

Great price, delivered quickly, what more can you ask for.

  • Great Printer, but Rubbish Documentation
  • Windows-only but Linux-also printer
  • Good printer – poor paperwork

Excellent printer, great price. Excellent laser printer, arrived swiftly and well packaged, easy enough to set up, even came with partially filled toner. Just install all the drivers etc and away you go. There’s really no need to download or print out the user manual, i connected the printer directly to my pc via usb and was able to address all the functions via my laptop.

Product exactly as i expected.

Its a fricken la-zer for 40 odd quid. If you can’t see the value you are beyond salvation.

    Great printer, but rubbish documentation. I’ve had this ricoh printer for a few days, and it’s a great multifunction printer that i use within my business. Although the printer itself is sound, what isn’t so great is the literature that come with it, which at best. The best thing to do is to google ‘ricoh sp204sfn user manual’ and follow the instructions. I have a windows 10pro operating system and had no issues with installing the requisite software that comes with the printer. So far, it seems a good printer/copier/scanner. I would have given this a five star rating if it wasn’t for the bad documentation.
