We bought an HP 1300 for the demo for $350. These can now be had for around
$300.

The 1300 does PS Level 2 emulation--works great.

The ballot comes out 8 seconds after hitting print. It easily handles legal
sized paper (or A4) if we need that. The print quality is great (1200 x
1200). Recommended duty cycle is 10,000 pages per month which means it has
a real value for use beyond using in the voting booth.
