>the 6K unit is one of the 3" ones

Did you mean the 5000s unit or the HR6000 unit which, I was lead to believe,
now comes with a 7" CRT just like the 7000 and 8000, although its earlier
versions may well have had a 3" CRT.

You got that right.  The one I spoke with was very concerned about the
Polaroid situation and what it meant in terms of future servicing and
upgrading of Polaroid products.  He said that they were considering entering
the servicing and repair of Polariod recorders should Polaroid or those that
might acquire the film recorder assets decide to drop the line.

Yes, and as I mentioned before, the 6K unit is one of the 3" ones, not a
7" tube one like the 7K and 8K models.

I have one (or several), but Dave knew in his pinky two orders of magnitude
more than I ever will about 'em!  Wish he were here... (hope he's doing
well in his new adventures).

Probably a pretty small niche, relatively speaking.  When recorders can be
bought at Costco for $39, then there will be a mailing list like this
one for them, etc.  :-)

I'm glad this thread has come up so I can learn about what I'm doing a
bit more.  Most web searching results in just a few dealer sites, and
although they should know what they're doing, they're not entirely
unbiased sources of information (particularly toward Polaroid who's
financial situation probably hasn't thrilled their dealers much).
