Rather impressive, therefore, it is not too heavy to be placed on a shelf or desk. The leaf tray can hold only 50 sheets, well below the competition (which revolves around 150 sheets), but sufficient for limited use. It is also not very solid, and requires more room to plan on the desktop. The controls are also very minimalist : located on the right side of the device, they boil down to two buttons, one to restart printing and the other to cancel a task in progress. Ricoh SP100E monochrome laser printer inexpensively 20 €. The connectivity of the printer is once again very limited: a USB port is then that's it. Connect it to the PC - it is not announced compatible Mac OS and think about buying a cable since it is not supplied with the box (it is very often the case for the printers of this range). The printer Ricoh SP 112 is as advertised, basic, made of plastic and design uncomfortable. Its functionality is very limited, and the size of the sheet tray prevents it from becoming a printer that will often be solicited. But for the price, hard to ask a lot, if not a printer that knows how to do what it is done to: print quickly without the result is ugly. That's what we see right now. The advertised printing speed is 16 pages per minute, below average performance, but without being a bad point, always in comparison with the price. After turning on the printer and before getting the first print, allow 25 seconds.

The price, again and always the price! The printer sometimes appears at sales or flash sales at 20 €. And for that price, the print quality and speed are at the rendezvous. The cost per page remains too high, and the absence of standby mode coupled with a generous power consumption prevents to make a printer that is used a lot. Pretty big and even if it's not what you're looking for in this price range - that sounds hollow, the finishes are not exceptional. Connectivity level, the lack of Wi-Fi and the only Windows compatibility are also damaging. If you are looking for a cheap monochrome laser printer, the Ricoh SP100E will suit you and on the only condition that you do not expect too much, that you have a PC, that you do not plan to share it between all the terminals of home or office, and you do not intend to use it all the time. It will have to remain off in case of inactivity - it consumes too much if not and the price per page prevents it from becoming a printer that will be used intensively. Many brakes to buy so, but a user aware of its weaknesses will use this printer wisely. The Ricoh has made its choice with its model Ricoh SP100E: small price, it prints correctly and at a reasonable speed. For the rest, the scanner, connectivity, capacity sheets, gadgets of all kinds, go your way. You will find here only the minimum; but the printer still has the merit to exist for all those who do not wish to break their PEL for a laser printer.
