Let me suggest the T2115. It's small enough to tuck into the margin next
to a print, large enough to read comfortably, with enough steps for most
purposes our processes will require, and -- at least in my experience
dandy *without* calibration, so it's one of the least expensive, maybe
even the least of all.

Yet, it has something some of the big expensive kinds lack -- the numbers
in small sharp type as part of the density. That is another and
INVALUABLE guide to print quality: How SHARP and clear those numbers
print is a much quicker clearer sign of print and paper character than
trying to read the plain tone alone.
