As I remember them, those X10 filters weren't much larger than the plug itself, and inside were simply a capacitor.

Gee, I don't remember any like that.  The X10 XPPF has been available for decades, and it is actually a very good filter for most devices.

Mine look like (from a distance) a brown X10 module. Same size... shape.

Yes, that is the XPPF.  There is a whole lot more in there than just a capacitor.  There are 3 inductors in series with the load and 3 capacitors to shunt off noise.

I didn't know laser printers could pull over 500 watts.
My Canon D530 says:  110-127V 50/60Hz 5.6A
My Dell C1760nw says 220-240 VAC, 50/60Hz, 5.0A or 110-127 VAC, 50/60Hz, 11.0A and I was surprised by those numbers.
Wow, I could curl up with that on a cold winter's night and stay warm!
