Oh, that deal.

They'll give you the black ink AND the printer "for free", but you have
to buy the color ink from them.  Problem is that they charge double what
you normally pay, and if you don't buy enough of it, they'll just charge
you $200 or $300 a month.

A previous employer of mine bought into that "deal".  The 860DP is nice
printer, but not $2400/year nice.
