Using cartridges broadly similar to those of inkjet printers, the new gel printers are quick and easy to set up, although even the smallest of the new breed, the GX, is a bit of a monster, having a bigger footprint than the Dell c colour laser and being much bigger than the average A4 inkjet. For Novel concept Easier to maintain. Photo output was very second-rate, especially in terms of colour accuracy. The GX is slightly more maintenance-free in this respect, with a black cartridge that lasts for around 1, prints and three colour cartridges that last for about 1, prints each. In our tests, colours lacked the vibrancy of inkjets and even most new colour laser printers, making the GX lacklustre for DTP and document printing. Our Verdict Well done to Ricoh for doing something different; now it needs to do it better.
