The Ricoh Aficio SG 3110DNw is definitely cheaper than some alternatives but the reason for this is clear once you use it. It is incredibly slow, especially with the High Quality driver setting. PC

More information at: TrustedReviews, 1/2010 Ricoh Aficio GX e3350N - Inkjet Printer We've looked at a couple of Ricoh's Aficio inkjet printers, which use the company's GelSprinter technology before, in the GX2500 and GX3000s, but although it's an interesting departure from the mainstream of ink squirting printers, the output quality and price of earlier models have detracted from its overall value. Single Test. One printer was reviewed and rated on features, print quality, print speed and value. … to review

Ricoh Aficio GX2500

Colour printer; Gel printer, Inkjet printer

Ricoh's printer doesn't quite live up to the lofty claims made by the manufacturer in terms of speed and quality. PC Pro found draft-mode quality to be a little below-average but when set

More information at: MacUser, 10/2008 Ricoh Aficio GX 2500 Messy ink based printers could be a thing of the past with new gel-based ink printers coming on to the market. Although they are called liquid gel-based ink, they are installed differently into the printer. Because they take up less space than a conventional ink cartridge there is more room for other components which would make printing faster and printers smaller. Is gel printing the new quick and efficient way of printing high quality prints or does it not compare to the experienced technology of the ink cartridges? … to review

Stylus Office B1100 PC Praxis 4/2010 - Brochures, floor plans, posters or luxuriant tables - many people dream of having a printer that can bring such things to paper in a sensible format. ...

Ricoh Aficio GX2500 Personal Computer World 4/2008 - It is a truth universally acknowledged that a laser printer is the best for text, a dye-sublimation printer best for full-colour photographs and an inkjet you best bet for a cheap and versatile home printer. However, perennially eccentric manufacturer Ricoh is hoping you look past the traditional technologies and give its gel-based GX2500 a whirl.

Epson AcuLaser M2000D PC Advisor 4/2008 - At £200, can this unassuming mono-laser printer impress?

Epson Stylus Photo 1400 Computing Made Easy 123 - The Epson Stylus Photo 1400 is primarily an A3 photo printer, an ideal solution for those who want to print big. With the option to print photos twice the size of the popular A4, the all-round bulk of the 1400 is unsurprisingly larger than your average home printer.

HP Officejet Pro 8000 TrustedReviews 4/2009 - Sharing the design styling of its elder siblings and the same print engine as the Pro 8500, HP's Officejet Pro 8000 is aimed at the SOHO market and the population of budget laser printers there. A third the price of the Pro 8000 it resembles, what does it offer in printing? Review details: Single Test. One laser printer was reviewed and rated on features, print quality, print speed and value.

HP PhotoSmart A826 10/2007 - The HP Photosmart A826 is the first standalone snapshot printer we've seen that truly attempts to bring the in-store photo kiosk experience into the home. Only its hefty £170 price gives us pause.

HP DeskJet 460wbt inkjet printer Computer act!ve 4/2006 - You can count the number of portable A4 inkjet printers on the fingers of one of Homer Simpson’s hands. At the top of HP’s stable is the DeskJet 460wbt, the final ‘wbt’ indicating its compatibility with two different wireless standards.

A3+ for 240 Euro COLOR FOTO 9/2010 - Epson wants just 240 Euro for an ink-jet printer that can print up to A3+ format. Is the quality good enough for photos?

HP Photosmart Pro B9180 inkjet printer Computer act!ve 2/2007 - Make no mistake; this photo printer is designed for the serious digital photographer. It can print pages from 6 x 4in up to A3+ and uses eight colours, including two blacks.

Epson Stylus Photo R2400 inkjet printer Computer act!ve 6/2006 - There are plenty of quality inkjet printers that produce a stunning A4 photo, but far fewer can do it at twice the size. In fact, look around for an A3 printer and the choices drop while the price hikes up. The big draw with Epson’s Stylus Photo R2400 is its UltraChrome K3 inks.

Epson A3 Printer B1100 GadgetSpeak 5/2011 - I see only a few A3 printers mainly because of size but after the recent offering from Brother this Epson unit was offered, it is bigger (wider) than the Brother and is only a printer and not an All In One but it can print A3+.

Epson Stylus Office B1100 TrustedReviews 9/2010 - Interest in A3 print for business continues to increase. Rumours that HP may be readying an A3 all-in-one to compete with the ones Brother has been selling for a while is also reflected by Epson's move to sell business as well as photo-enthusiast A3 printers. The Stylus Office B1100 can handle paper up to A3+ and offers fast plain paper print, as well as four-colour photos.

Gel printers are just as popular as their competitors – inkjet and laser printers – thanks to their low cost of printing and their environmentally-friendly gels. They make up for their somewhat lower printing speeds by producing prints with intense colours that are both light- and wipe-resistant. Most models cost slightly more than average.

Gel printers have been available since 2006 as an alternative to inkjet or laser printers. These 'solid ink printers' use neither toner nor ink but rather liquified gel or wax. This is the biggest advantage of gel printers for environmentally conscious users because the colorstick used is completely non-toxic. Their performance also stands out among competitors. Those who print a lot of documents in a short time period could benefit from a gel printer's relatively cheap cost of printing (around 1.5p per A4 mono print). This makes up for the slower print speeds compared to laser printers. The colour quality of inkjet and laser prints are about the same. They deliver colour fidelity and light-resistance because the printer operates without outside influences. The ink dries immediately leaving prints smudge-proof. Even when using normal copy paper, ink sticks between the paper fibres. The print head of a gel printer is crucially wider than a traditional inkjet printer and provides a resolution of 1,200 dpi. The main disadvantage of gel printers is their high price. Gel printers can cost between 300 and 450 pounds with duplux printing capability.
