Hi Foxitians,

Are not some replacement equipment parts unrealistic in pricing my friends?

Have a 2 year old HP high-end colour laser printer model CP3525.
The paper transporter unit went defective and now ever page printed has lines running
through them. Not a fuser issue this is the paper tranporter unit on this LaserJet.

Originally paid $940.00 for this unit back in December of 2010 and it worked very good
up until a week ago where the vertical lines started to show up on all pages printed.
I proved it definately into the paper transporter unit as I borrowed one out of a customer
printer of mine, "same make and model" and my printer works 100% with this unit in place.
Customer was good enough to let me borrow the unit for an hours to test with.

I priced out this darn tranporter unit "Electrostatic transfer belt (ETB) assembly.
Includes 2nd transfer roller assembly and the intermediate transfer belt assembly
CC468-67907". The price comes in at: $678.05 for this one part for the laser printer.
Yikes the original cost for the entire printer with high-yield cartridges like I
mentioned was $940.00 US.

I finally decided to purchase a totally new printer completely in this case. I picked up
a HP Colour LaserJet Enterprise 500 M551dn for $770.98 US on sale with over $300 Xmas
New Years sale discount special. Totally free shipping as well.

There is no reason at all one part should cost over 72% of the original cost of the unit.

One of my pet-peeves here folks with hardware manufacturers!

How do you feel about stuff like this?

Any stories you can share on this topic feel free to vent off!
