The color laser may have bitten the dust. That's a pain, we need the high-volume print capacity.

If, in fact, in the morning it's still kicking out "Imaging Unit Error" messages, we can try to find somewhere that will repair it, or we can replace it with something new.

So first, anybody able to suggest a good laser printer repair shop that will look at a decade-old laser printer and not just laugh?

Second, I'm looking at two possible replacements:

Xerox Phaser 6120N Laser Printer

Xerox Phaser 8500N Solid-ink Printer

The 6120 has a stiff discount at Costco, and is pretty cheap. The 8500 has a really big manufacturer rebate, and a lower per-page cost. It's also a hell of a lot faster.
