Re: OT- new toy

I don't think the brand makes much difference today, at least not as much as
it was in the past.  I also don't think they are made to last like they did in
the past and getting parts is just more expensive and headaches than just
replacing things.... seems everything in this world is going that way.
Have fun playing with your new toy!

Just bought myself a new toy.  My large 15-yr.-old Canon copier decided not
to make any more copies.  It's been baulky for a while, so I wasn't too

What I found at Staples was a combination copier, fax, and scanner for
considerably less money than I had paid for the original copier.  This one is
a Brother, prints in color and will auto-feed up to 15 pages.  Chet wanted to
buy a big, heavy-duty Canon again, but I couldn't see the justification for

I do a lot of desk-top publishing, but not enough for an office-level
 He used to have a Brother printer some years ago, and doesn't remember
that it gave him any trouble.  I bought a 3-year service contract that will
replace it if anything goes wrong.  Who knows, three years may be more
than I will need it anyway.
The best thing is that this machine is compact - much smaller than the
old copier, and additionally will replace my old fax machine and scanner -
both of which are rather large.  I don't know what I will do with all the
space on my desk.
Have any of you had experience with Brother machines?  I think Chet was
just shopping names - like insisting he had to have a Nikon camera when
he wasn't much of a photographer anyway.
