I had a good chuckle from one of the threads from ten years ago. The thread stated, "Envelopes should be a four letter word". Boy oh boy, do I remember when we couldn't print envelopes with our copiers and our printers.

From the amount of threads there was some awesome activity. While reading through one of the threads, I noticed the Samsung SCX 6345N. For me, this was the start of the A4 multifunctional era. I believe cost for the 45ppm device was somewhere around $1,900 with MSRP about $4,000. Not much room for margin, however I can remember acquiring many net new accounts with the Sammy because there was no need for 11x17.
