Don't base your experience on the 340... they suck.

The 850 is a great printer.  They're very easy to fix.  I have complete
service manuals and Xerox training for the 840/850/860/8200.  If you
can get an 860 or 8200, they're even better because they waste less ink
to clean the head (i.e. every time they are turned on -- truly a printer
meant to be left on 24/7 -- but they don't waste all that much energy...
at least the new ones... the 8400 is beautiful)

They're also very fast and the printouts are wondrous.
