Both nice printers. We had a 5si with a duplex unit that was the only 
printer for a couple dozen of us. Neither we nor it had any complaints. 
As I recall the 4000 (or 4000N) was the next printer, not quite as 
hefty, and I didn't have as much experience with it, but it seemed to 
perform more than adequately under a pretty heavy load.
