Re: [vox-tech] need printer advice badly

On the new side, a search of CompUSA revealed these
two candidates:

HP 1200e


Xerox Phaser 3400

As far as the fuser unit, this is the part of a laser
printer where the toner is heated and bonded to the
paper. The HP 6 (4 & 5 series as well) may have all
the parts you describe built in to it. I couldn't find
the actual part number on a quick check of HP's
external web site. Another thing, the base memory of
HP printers is soldered in I believe.
