Brother MFC-7840W Wireless Laser Printer, and Amazon Short URLs

Brother MFC-7840W Wireless Laser Printer
Bought a Brother MFC-7840W All-In-One Wireless Laser Printer from NewEgg today for $219, no tax, free shipping. I feel it is a pretty good deal. I have been looking around for an All-In-One printer for some time. This one has a laser printer, a copier, a scanner, a fax; and has both wireless and ethernet networking capabilities.

The printer is available for $249 at Amazon – It has pretty good reviews there.

However, it can be made even shorter by using the domain name. The trick is to append the product id (in this case – “B0016ZQ566“) after ““.
