I've got a QMS 330, bought for $200, works like a champ except for the 
imaging belt, seems that around 1500 pages of the transfer paper the 
previous owner was using to print t shirts with was enough to scuff it 
up. (yes that right, a QMS 330 with only a 1500 page count for $200). I 
swapped it with one out of my dead Xerox DC4 and have been using it fine 
ever since. (as well as having a spare nearly everything for it...)
