HP K8600 - Review (anyone be interested?)
I'm debating the value of purchasing an HPK8600dn so I can put it through its paces and produce a proper review of its capabilities as well as test out a kit I've spent a year developing for the HP88 type printer.
My question is two fold.
1. Would anyone find such a review useful?
2. Would anyone be interested in purchasing the unit after I'm done testing it and if so, for how much (assuming the cartridges were used obviously)?
Thought I'd ask to see whether it's going to be possible to test, review and then sell on (assuming of course my fiancée will let me!).

I've been thinking about getting an A3 printer, and, as you know, we've had a lot of success with Continuous Ink. Really, I need it to have 2 trays - A4 and A3 - does the k8600 have this? (I can't see that it has) I can't really justify a purely A3 printer (it would probably block up) and i can't see staff being able to faff about with swapping paper.

No, I think HP have sensibly realised that dual tray printers aren't all that reliable (K550dtn being a case in point) so when you double the paper size it becomes worse.

All that said though, I have to agree that I'd see this being something that a primary school would use each start of term to sort out displays and they it'd sit idle.

I think that's why I'm still hedging..
