Agreed!  The other item I noted was that if you wanted to print out all 1800 pages at $0.10 per page it would still cost less than what I see hardcopies selling for.  

One benefit of making your own hard copies from the CD-ROM is that you can print out related items from different parts of the manual and put them together for reference.  My prime example of this is that stuff relating to engine troubleshooting is spread between ignition, fuel ... and I think even one other place ... and some times it is difficult to remember what is where.  

There is one other document I don't see mentioned that is available in hard copy  from Dyment for what I consider to be a reasonable price ... and that is the wiring diagram.  Since use of the wiring diagram often requires quickly jumping from sheet to sheet I find hardcopy preferable.
