Unless you really know about the model and feel comfortable in setting it up & doing any maintenance on it yourself--I'd avoid used processors in general--especially ilford, unless it's something like the ones made by kreonite. A better bet would be something like a durst printo or maybe a fujimoto. At least with these models, they can reconfigured for other speeds & processes--so you're not locked into one process should it become obsolete.
