Chuck--  We run a couple of the HP5si printers here connected over TCP as
remote writers.  I think for the money, they can't be beat.  They're fast,
durable, easily configurable.  Why pay the premium for an IBM?  I highly
recommend the HP.  Plus, Brad Stone has all those cool WSC objects you can
download if you need to do any custom printing.

        Hi Folks !

        We have an HP 5si (24ppm) attached to our AS/400 via the MPI Blue
Kit
        (supports AFP) with a simm that allows supports IPDS... It has a
twin-ax
        attachment feature and connects over Cat 5 twisted pair. It
configures
        as a *IPDS printer on the AS/400. This printer has a LOT of miles on
it
        (the printer - was the system printer for an NCR Unix box for 4 or 5
        years before this past January's AS/400 installation...) and it is
        getting a bit flaky.

        We print between 1000 - 1500 Invoices daily and then after that it
just
        does print screens and 10-30 page prints sporadically throughout the
        day...

        So what are you all using ?

        Lexmark ?
        HP ?
        IBM ? (or is that Lexmark now ?)
        someone else ?

        SMALL company so price is important...

        TIA !

        Chuck
