Part of me is hesitant to trust a third party take up reel, but after thinking about it, I'm not sure it's that complicated of machinery, and might not make a difference.
No rocket science needed for that so why not? It also looks universal enough so you could use it for the next printer too with some adaptions. One thing I did not see mentioned; can it rotate back and forward? To decurl paper right away that choice can be important.
To seed some paranoia; looks like all office employees have a holiday in Qingdao and the new computer systems arrive next day.
