    Has anyone spotted that Howtek 4500 on eBay?

    When I was in the market for a drum scanner (no more) I found a lot of stuff at attractive prices by typing the name of the model and a word like "used", "refurbished", "for sale" in Google. Most of it was from companies that cater to the pre-press market. It was often sold with a limited warranty of a couple of months, so at least you were sure to get something that works.

    i picked up a nice d4500 for about 2K. excellent condition and works like a dream. Drums are expensive, and i've been trying to find a used one myself (refurb is about $1200, new about $1800). I've been using silverfast with mine and have been happy with the results

    Yeah, I bought a Howtek D4000 on Ebay that was supposed to be working fine. When it arrived (after very expensive shipping) the door was broken and I have never been able to get it to work. The folks at Aztek are very nice, but told me it basically wasn't worth fixing.

    Buyer beware...

    Kevin, do you still have the D4000? I could use one for parts.

    Larry,

    I'm still scratching my head about what to do with it. That might be a good idea though. Drop me an email.

    Hi Jim,

    I have a spare drum for the 4500 if you are interested. Excellent condition and with a mounting station if you need one.

    You are responding to a 6 year old post. You would probably be better off sending him a direct message.
    Thanks,
