    I am planning to purchase the HP LaserJet 3330 for my home office.
    A. Is the USB port on the printer the newer 2.0 version or the original 1.XX version? If it is 1.XX, 1. are there any plans to hardware upgrade it to 2.0 (if that is even possible), and 2. for the purposes for which this multifunction printer is designed (printing, faxing, copying and scanning), will 2.0 make a difference?
    B. What benefits will I reap by upgrading the standard memory of 32 MB, which is 8 MB for the system, and 24 MB for the user? The maximum memory is 96 MB.

    Check the version of the USB ports on the PC prior to buying the printer and match the interfaces. If your PC only has 1.1 USB ports and the printers are version 2, go out and buy a USB 2 add on card. It will make a difference and allieve your anxiety about incompatibility. If you can afford the upgrade for the memory you might as well do it. A memory upgrade is probably the #1 upgrade you can do to increase your performance aside from the CPU.

    If I read this correctly, you are talking about the memory and port on the printer, right?

    The 3300 has a USB 1.1 port, so that's no problem, and I don't think that initially I'd do anything with the memory. I really doubt you'll need more than 32mb in the printer for most tasks. You can always add memory after the fact, I'd get the printer and see if there's any need.
