Need recommendation for professional quality all-in-one
Posted 11 March 2012 - 03:10 PM
I have a new home-office setup. I need a new all-in-one, and am looking for a recommendation.
It's got to be a high-quality, sturdy machine, because I'm going to be using it heavily.
What I need:
-Laser, NOT inkjet
-Black and white
-Good print/copy speed
-Automatic document feeder that is not a piece of shit that will choke on 5 pages
-Scans to PDF
-Fax not necessary (I use eFax)
-Wireless would be great, IF it's reliable
I'm willing to spend a couple of bucks to get the right machine. I have a piece of shit HP inkjet all-in-one right now, and I want to kick it down the street - it tends to shit the bed when I need it most (like today).

If you want a truly digital office then this is your most important investment

Bumping this thread as I'm in need of a new home printer
Needs to be connected to the wifi network and not through a single computer
Needs to be able to print color
Would prefer a scanner but not necessary
Would prefer something that could duplex but not if it drives the price too high

I"m in a similar boat at OCST, as I just started to work from home fulltime. I've got a laser printer right now, but the occasional fax and scanning would be handy as well.

I bought it for $99 on Amazon, although it looks like the price is now in the $120 range.

Just saw that this thread had been bumped so I thought I'd let folks know what I eventually got last year.
It's a Kyocera FS1035MPF: http://www.kyocerado...s1035mfpdp.html
I gave up dealing with Staples, Best Buy, etc., and found a good copier/printer dealer online, and this is what he recommended. I got one additional paper feeder to increase capacity, it can accomodate two.
I fucking love it. I have had it for a year, using it very heavily, and it has jammed exactly once. I often have to copy/print very large sets of legal papers (250-500+ pages/document, 3-7+ copies of each) and it is fast and reliable. The scanner is great. I do not use the fax capability, but it has that. I don't have it networked, but I might be doing that in the near future.
The downsides are: no color printing/copying (one of my clients lets me do this at his office when I need to, which is not often); it is big; it was not cheap (~ $1300, with the extra paper feeder and shipping from NC to NY); ink cartridges are not cheap and not available in retail stores, you have to order them online (each cartridge is $100-125, although you can sometimes get them on sale with a volume discount for $75-85; I usually keep a couple on hand, because you can't run to Staples and get one when they run out; fortunately each one lasts 4-5 months, even with fairly heavy use).
It's overkill if you are not dealing with large volumes of printing, but if you are, it's a beast.
I can give anyone interested the contact info for the dealer, he was good to work with.
