I almost got a Color LaserJet 8550DN for $200 plus freight from Canada
about two years ago. But the seller had apparently forgotten to put on
a reserve, and when mine was the only bid, started lying like a rug and
welched on the sale. Ended up with their account cancelled by eBay.
Wasn't long after that I got the 4500. But I really, really wanted the
8550's tabloid-size capability. There's a lot I could do if I had a
tabloid-size color printer and tabloid-size color scanner.
