Brother EHL-2040If you need to print black n’ white documents in volume, this laser printer would be soooo much better than an inkjet. Plus, it’s practically free!


  • 250-sheet tray
  • 2400×600 resolution
  • USB 2.0 Interface (and a Parallel interface for you really late adopters!)
  • up to 20 pages per minute
  • PC and Mac compatible

This definitely falls into the “disposable printer” catagory… the replacement toner cartridges cost more than the printer. It comes with a starter toner cartridge which provides 1500 printed pages, all for $39.99 (after rebate).

An "early adopter" pick on Amazon three years ago, this item is now being forced into the "old news" category by higher-speed wireless protocols.

Still, 54 Mbs is pretty fast, and this is one of the most reliable wireless routers out there!

ESA DVD / VCR Combo: $39.00 June 5, 2006

ESA E4000Do you keep missing episodes of 24, or maybe Grey's Anatomy?  Can't afford a TiVo?  Well, here's your answer: A Cheap, refurbished VCR (remember these? This is REALLY old tech) that also happens to play DVDs.

For the cost of a trip for two to the Cineplex (snacks included), you can start recording your favorite shows and FF through those commercials.  The built-in DVD player is a bonus, that will also play audio CDS.  It's a 20th Century multimedia center!

I couldn't find any reviews anywhere, but at this price, it's probably just fine.

Lexar 128MB Jump DriveOne- and Two-GigaByte jump drives are all the rage, and there are a few companies marketing 8 GB jump drives for hundreds of dollars.  But do you really need one that big?

Why not turn to last year's size, and get a great price.  At $10 bucks a pop, get a few of these and just leave 'em lying around.  If you really need to move a file over 128 MB, burn a CD!

PIXMA iP1600 PrinterI've been a big fan of dosposable printers for some time (buy 'em, use 'em till the ink runs out, then sell them on ebay and buy another), and here's a gem: The PIXMA iP1600 from Canon.

It's fast, prints on multiple paper sizes, and at this price, it sells for less than the ink cartridges that come in the box.

Here's a glowing review at PC Magazine.

UPDATE: Outpost has dropped the price (it was 29.99).

iPod ShuffleI had an iPod Shuffle for a while, and really liked it. I always enjoyed not knowing what the next song would be. This is the base model which hold about 100 songs. It coms with earbuds, a lanyard, and its battery gives you around 12 hours of continuous playing time.
