I could not agree more with you. A used HPLJ4 cost me $125, and a
"refill cartridge" about $45 at the same place. Although, I do believe
that the toner cartridge was full, 500 pages so far and still going
strong. 
My personal "Computer related Best Buy" so far. Beats any other
peripheral I have bought during the years come and gone since the
Sinclair ZX80. ( Yeah, we are still alive).
