Drums do go their yield...sometimes.
Feed rollers do not last the life of the machine, they are rated for 180k, thats about what they go.
Firmware fixed the fuser problems the early machines had.

These 401/402 models are not too bad. The only real problem is the toner dusting on the LED array. Ricoh just came out with a new drum designed to correct that problem, I hope it works.
180k is pretty close to published life expectancy.
Drums are not new design. They decided they were manufacturing them wrong.
ADF rollers as needed. Usually not a set number of copies.

Just strikes me more as an as needed parts replacement machine. More of an entry level, get your foot in the door design machine.
