Great would be:

- An HP multi-function device with USB, ethernet, photo-capable
  full-bleed inkjet, duplex, fax, card reader, and combined flatbed/ADF
  scanner (for my demo).

- An Epson multi-function device with printer, scanner, and card reader
  (for testing with libusb-based CUPS USB backend)

- Epson high-end photo inkjet supported by Gutenprint

- Dye-sublimation printer supported by Gutenprint

Please anyone on the list here, make your suggestions. Note that
High-end laser multi-function devices are not needed, we will have
plenty of them from Lanier.

Is out now.
