I'm interested in buying a Z3100 but have put it off until the dust settles.
Fred, you were quick to challenge my motives and ask if I worked for a competitor of HP. Now we learn that you have not even purchased a printer, and therefore are not one of the victims who lost $800. I guess it is easy for you to take a cheap shot and question someone else's motives, since we lost the money, but you did not.
At the time, I turned around and asked what profession you are in, and whether you have any connection to or relationship to HP or any of its competitors. How about responding?
I normally do not challenge the motives of posters on the forum. I think it is a cheap shot, and assume that those who who sell HP products or work as a consultant to HP will disclose that, as several have. And that doesn't lessen the value of their opinions and in some cases means that they have a greater understanding of the product than the rest of us. In point of fact, we benefit from the insights of those who sell HP products or are employed as consultants to HP. They are honorable individuals, and we benefit from their participation in the forum. So again, I don't ask about a person's employment. That is a cheap shot and not one that I'll make. But you did, and now we learn you don't even own the Z3100.
But since you took the cheap shot at me, consider it returned, and I'm still waiting for the response.
