I'm looking for a cheap but ok All-In-One printer. Needs to be a fax/printer/scanner. I saw something somewhere for $89 but can't remember what it was. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I really have to recommend against an all-in-one device. Either they use a single set of drivers that are totally compromised, or you need three or four different kinds of drivers (printer, scanner, etc) to make it work reliably. And if one part stops working? Count me out. Much better off buying individual pieces, IMHO. I just went to my local Circuit Sh*tty and saw an "open box" plain paper fax for $98. Add a good USB scanner (I have a HP 3300C that works great) for $100 or so and spend the rest on a good laser printer.
It may be better, however this is for my parents and little brother. They will barely use it at all. We also don't really have room for a different components. If it costs like $129 and breaks down in a year, i don't really care. So back to my original question, where can i find a good deal?
8ppm black and white, 4ppm color
Fax, Print, Copy, Scan
Then get TWO of these:
Your total should be $150.00 exactly. Then use coupon code: 89764 for $30 off a $150+ Purchase (expires 5/15/01).
Should end up $120 plus tax, shipping is free.
Canon 745 MF machine would be better IMHO.. haven't checked prices lately but it was ~$150 last time I saw it advertised... uses individual ink tanks for CYMK... cheaper printing costs overall and the quality is there...
