    New Printer Comparison

    Hi,

    I just installed a new Ricoh SP C430DN in my IT Suite. It's costly at £675 ex.VAT but economy is superb and you should make your money back within 12 months. It is shipped with 3k toners so don't expect too many pages for your initial £675, its later on when you appreciate the savings. Also check the dimensions since it's a bit of a monster.

    These are the high capacity genuine toners I get from my supplier:
    Black £73.85 21k pages £0.0035
    Colours £173.85 24k pages £0.0072
