Not so bad a buy...

The new printer definitely wasn't a mistake.

Forgot to factor in shipping costs when I checked prices on eBay. That's one heavy printer; shipping could easily be over $100.

The "hard" consumables (imaging unit, transfer roller and fuser) still have quite a bit of life in them. Replacement parts don't cost as much as they used to, and it's pretty easy to find new replacements on eBay for cheap.

It's still got quite a bit of toner in it. Toner is expensive from most of the dealers, but it's pretty easy to find on eBay for cheap. (Sense a pattern here?)

Accessories (such as the "add two input trays" lower unit) show up on eBay for cheap.

Trying to find a 32mb SIMM for the printer, but eBay hasn't been helpful there. Maybe ramjet will come through for me.
