Yeah, would really like to get one too, the sky is the limit once you own one 8). And price is a relative factor, ofc, dot-matrix printers where in this priceregion when they where originally introduced, AFAIR?

 I remember buying a cheap DMP for about $500 way back after the prices came down. :P  So, yeah - round about that range or so.
