Brother Wireless Mono Laser Printer

According to the Amazon page for the printer on this Woot deal, Brother has an updated version, the HLL2380DW. This printer, with the same (or better) specs, is available brand-new from Staples for the same price as Woot has on the refurbished older model, plus free shipping, AND the Square Deal 3-year protection plan through Staples is ~1/2 the cost of the Square Deal 1-year protection plan from Woot. Of course, Staples does have a limit of only 2 per customer, vs. 3 for Woot. And Staples will charge sales tax-- oh wait, so does Woot.

So to recap, newer vs. older version, brand-new vs. factory-refurb, free vs. $5 shipping, cheaper vs. … well… not cheaper protection plan.

Where’s the deal, Woot!?!?

Oh shit! Burn, thanks for the research Bakon!

The Staples deal on the updated model Brother HL-L2380DW ran out after a couple weeks, but OfficeMax/OfficeDepot has it new, free shipping for $99, as does Amazon.
