need suggestion for a good printer and scanner in one

  1. i would say fax also, but can you just fax the image you scan to the fax number just as easy ?

    something cheap and reliable, doesnt need to have high quality, but color is preferrable, scanner should be decent enough to see the fine print in documents after being scanned

    i got myself a nice hp psc 2510. Though the drivers are bloated, it's network based with wireless support. Color, Scanner, Printer and Fax. Ink is cheap too. Mix pack (1K, 1CYM) for $40 CND

    Epson RX620. Love it! 6-ink cartridges are a plus, and ink is about $30 USD, only, for all cartridges.

    Best photo prints, too.

    I had an Epson, and it died within 6 months. It was a CX model number, but I don't remember which modem number now. Now I have a Canon MP450, and like it a lot more than the Epson. Personally, I have had the best luck with Canon printers than any other.

    ugh. Canon makes awsome cameras. I wouldn't touch their printers with a 10 ft pole, however.

  16. how about the RX700 ?? its like a hundred more... worth it ??
    is the only difference between the 620 and 700 , that the 700 handles negatives ?? so can i take the negatives from my camera and develop them with the rx700 ???

    sorry for the mess of questions... im gonna buy tonight so your efforts are very helpful

    Unless you really need an all-in-one, it's better to buy a separate scanner and printer. That way, if one of them breaks or just gets too damn old, you can replace it without having to replace the other -- waste not, want not. All-in-ones also have a nasty tendency to be cheaply built compared to single-use machines.

    If you're going to be faxing documents a lot, though, an all-in-one will spare you the trouble of having to buy a modem for your computer. God knows why, but fax machines still use regular phone lines to transmit data.

    I like Canon scanners and printers; I imagine their all-in-ones are also pretty good.
     
  18. yep imma really need an all in one printer/scanner/copier.. and imma just fax online..
     
  19. :x:

    ok... so im doubtful it developes negatives .. (i wasnt thinking.. light and negatives ftl) so im guessing it prints photos of already developed ones...

    so whats the f'n difference between these two ?
