Thank you for your support, Ken and Matt.
I do believe people are having various experiences with their equipment, but I can't think of any reason why they have to share their's in a sale's thread. I described the offered piece as best I could and am ready to provide any further information if needed. I am aware that this offer would not interest a professional printer for whom a warranty is essential. I am no such person and I consider this to be a fair offer for someone who is looking to get into digital printing on a budget.
Let me emphasize that all reasonable and serious offer will be considered and welcomed.
