Absolutely. Love the reliability of my 4500.

I bought it several months ago for $100, as a 4500DN with 500-sheet feeder
and a duplexer and JetDirect. Good fuser and all toners.

Sold the feeder, duplexer, and JetDirect for $150 and took apart two more
4500s I found for their duplexers/trays, JetDirects, fusers, rollers, and

So as of now I have 8 toners, 3 fusers, and 3 roller/feeders (whatever they
are called). I'm tempted to buy a 3550, but I feel I've got "negative money"
in this 4500 and its working perfectly for me. I reduced
time-till-power-save from 30 mins to 1 min, we will see if that helps the
power bill. I print about 1000/pp month.
