  • Does the scanner scan to .pdf file format?

    Unfortunately the Ricoh Aficio SG3100SNw is not compatible with scanning directly to a PDF. However, scanning to a USB is an alternative solution which is one way to scan directly from the printer to the computer.

  • is this printer an inkjet or laser?

    The Ricoh Aficio SG3100SNw is a GelJet, meaning it is a mix of both inkjet and laser printers. GelJets take the best of of print speeds and image quality from the two types of printer and offers them in one model at affordable prices.

  • Can i get metallic inks such as gold and silver for this printer?

    Gold and Silver metallic inks are not compatible with this printer, the only consumables that are compatible with this printer are CMYK toners. These consumables can be purchased from here:

  • Can i use Dye-Sub inks in this machine?

    Unfortunately, the Ricoh Aficio SG3100SNw (980666) is not compatible with using dye-sub inks as this is a Gel printer and they are not compatible with this printer.

  • Does anyone know if this printer is compatible with Linux and if so how well it works under Linux?

    Unfortunately the Ricoh Aficio SG3100SNw (980666) is only compatible with Windows and not Mac Linux.

  • Dr Mike 26 April 2017 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Printer since June 2015

    A fine printer with a wide range of features that I have not fully explored. The Printer control panel is easily seen and controls are intuitive. This printer has the easiest cartridge change feature I have yet encountered. Changing a cartridge takes only seconds. When ink levels are dropping the warning can get m little irritating but this is a minor and maybe helpful feature. I recommend this printer and wonder why it is not more popular.

  • Peter Singleton 30 May 2016 3.75 / 5 Value 4 Features 4 Quality 3 Performance 4 OK compromise between inkjet & laser

    Problem with inkjet printers is that the print is water-soluble, so any damp and the ink runs; lasers are expensive (particularly colour laser printers), so this seemed like a good compromise. However, colour is rather washed out and paler than my previous inkjet (HP) - photos seem to print slightly smeared - despite noting the thicker and glossy paper in the settings. Perhaps you just get what you pay for and this is just a compromise rather than the best of both worlds.

  • Becky Chadd 01 October 2014 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Great Printer

    I am really pleased with this printer so far. We had a laser printer which was very noisy and had only lasted us about 2 years. Granted we have only had this new one for a couple of weeks but its much quieter, fast, the photo copy function is superb and also we can scan documents into our computers. I do have a slight problem getting this function to work with the mac but thats probably down to me and not the printer!! Overall we are really pleased and the cartridge prices are much less than for the laser printer.

  • anthony seymour 22 May 2014 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Why buy the Ricoh SG3100SNW

    This is a gel printer, it is fast, with good quality prints on normal or glossy paper, it has duplex mode, it scans, handles multiple page scanning, it faxes and copies, the cartridge replacements are relatively cheap compared to laser ones. You can network via wifi or wired. It can be left unused without the inks drying out, making this an affordable printer for home, soho or larger office. Really impressed with build quality and features, for the money this an excellent purchase. Printerland delivered quickly and i would highly recommend them as a supplier.

  • Richard Dunn 15 August 2013 4.25 / 5 Value 5 Features 4 Quality 4 Performance 4 Ricoh Aficio SG3100SNw

    Excellent Multifunction Printer and service from Printerland at a great price!. Supporting driver software on CD from Ricoh caused PC issues (BSOD) so I would advise downloading the latest version (TWAIN Driver) directly from the Ricoh website. All is working fine now!
