I was under the impression that the 3490E F11 was going to be dropped
from maintenance. We have one and it works well (keeping Rob's advice
in mind). However, I was planning on replacing it with a 3490 E01 (or
something similar) due to the maintenance concern. I might be all wet
but you might want to check. Size wise the F11 is much more preferred.
