- One of the holy grails of HP portable collectors is on eBay at
The asking price seems more than a little steep to me. The seller
doesn't have the device driver or any HPIL cables (THE holy grail), but,
nonetheless, there it is. I find it curious that people will keep things
like HPIL devices but throw away the unique, proprietary cables needed
to make them work.
These are rare; I do not recall one on eBay in more than a year. So is
this price exorbitant or merely pricey?
