Buy one at the best price you can find. You snooze and you just might lose.
Consider your own thoughts....the 2011 3010 hasn't enough going for it to offset the features and performance of the 2010 8350. That doesn't sound too much to me like a design to be too worried about being outdated or obsolete.
You can believe this:
Epson did not create the Feature Set difference between the 3010 and higher end units on a lark...they did so to encourage people to consider choosing "up".
The 8350 is a wonder...a anomaly as far as performance, features and value is judged. And it's price is on a downward curve. It cannot be construed as being "old news"....rather if another similar PJ came out, it too would garner effusive praise.
Although most PJs don't stay on current Model line-ups too long, (the 8350 really just goes back only 13-14 months) a run-away popular best sellers isn't an easy choice to discontinue. Right now, Resellers are having a field day sellin' them. But who knows for how long? My guess is that by /before late Spring, we'll see an announcement that the 8350 is being phased out. Then...by Fall, they will all be gone except Reconditioned units.
