My wife still prefers the color rendering on our HP7310; all her 
letterheads are set up for it and print the 'wrong' color on the HP8500 
and HP8600.  The 8500 is still around as that is all I can print to from 
my corporate notebook, and only when I am off the vpn; so it is off most 
of the time.

So we have 3 all-in-one printers that are used for different tasks. And 
none of them support T.38...
