    Im looking to buy an used sm 74-4, so few things that i want to know,
    Is it better to buy post 2000 machine?
    As i heard post 2000 machines are easier to handle when there's some problem.
    Also is straight machine better since i only do straight printing jobs.

    I am expecting good suggestions thank you.

    Any machine after 1996 will be a viable machine. It took two years for the factory to make needed improvements. After '99 (CP2000) machines, there were no changes that would really make a difference, other than more costly electronic elements to fail. As to perfecting, if you know you'll never have need for sheet reversion, don't buy into it, as it's a liability. But keep in mind, if your customers start asking for 2 over 2, or 1 over 1, there's no looking back.

    Thank you for the suggestion, i have been looking machines from 1996 as well, so for cheap and best i think I'd choose between 1996 to 2000
