I was at one of the other schools for a meeting today, and they had one of these machines. I couldn't believe how cool it was, but how simple the concept was. Scan a piece of paper, make a big printout. Simple, right? Well, I looked it up:
The first warning sign should be the lack of pricing info. And that the closest place (when I searched) that deals in this machine is in another state. Which is weird, since I'm so close to Chicago, a huge city...
So I dug further, and this website claims that it retails around $6000!!! What?!! At that price, I'd be better off going to Kinko's and getting a zillion full color poster prints. I still wouldn't end up spending $6000.
Sigh. So much for that idea. At least I had fun using it, and made a nifty new poster.
Anyone out there have any experience or knowledge about these printer thingys? They still seem awesome.
