RICOH GX 3050 ???

As my old laser gets more and more tired I'm incereasingly thinking in terms of replacing it with something else. I don't usually do vast quantities but there are occasional big runs e.g. 100+ sheets of disk labels.

The bottom line is that I need good mono and preferably colour, duplexing would be very useful, and preferably not incredibly expensive to run.

The one I keep coming back to is the RICOH GX 3050 "gelsprinter," which is a network printer with duplex and goes for around 60 quid plus postage. It's an inkjet but the ink is allegedly quick drying and relatively cheap. There appear to be Mac and Linux drivers for it.

Anyone got any reasonable hands-on experience (and not just seen a review, I want to know the real dirt...)?

There's no great urgency, the laser is still fine for mono - what I may do is buy something else for colour, e.g. the Ricoh, and keep the laser as my workhorse for text and drafts.
