    If you want to buy an office printer and it will be used to print out contracts and objectives, then the best choice
          is an all-in-one printer that can print, scan and have the functions of a fax machine at the same time.

   If you are planning to turn your own room into your home office for your own productive purposes,
you need to have the right office equipment in addition to the office furniture. No office space is
complete without a computer system whether it is a desktop or a laptop. There should also be a printer,
copying machine, scanner and other special equipment depending on the tasks that are needed to be
done. One of the main concerns of having all that equipment is that it takes up a lot of space and that
can affect productivity especially when mission critical operations are needed. Getting a multifunction
printer is one way to solve this problem.

 Getting a multifunction printer won't just save you space, but multifunction printers also have a number
of good advantages to the office user. Some may not be very obvious until you really get one for

Great for Power Saving

 With a multifunction printer, you can save power in two different ways. Rather than having a printer,
scanner and copier all on at the same time, you can save a bit of power if you turn on the same device
when you need to do something that the multifunction printer is capable of doing. The other way is that
since it is just one device, only one plug and USB port needs to be used to make room for other
devices. This is ideal also for plugging into routers that have USB ports.

Better than the Sum of its Parts

 If you stumble across a good brand that is proficient in scanning, printing and copying you can avoid
the risk of getting three different devices that have questionable reliability. This can save you some
money and the combined features of the three works better together since it is the same product. It is
worth remembering that some multifunction printers have fax capabilities as well to make them more

Excellent for Networking

 It is easy to share a printer on a network these days, but if you place a multifunction printer on the
network instead, you are basically sharing most of its powerful features without any setup or
configuration troubles. Multifunction printers are ideal for environments where there are many

computers connected to each other.

Easy to Setup and Maintain

 Again this depends on the type and brand of the multifunction printer, but if you do enough research in
finding the best one, you should have an all in one device that sets up in no time and the maintenance
is much easier than taking care of the separate devices. Driver problems aren't much of an issue either
since everything should be installed using the software supplied on a single CD rather than multiple
CD's if the devices are separate.

 Multifunction printers are not very useful for the average home users that occasionally print or scan,
but office users will save a great deal of time in getting things done if the printer performs well in all

                        What Should You Know About a Multifunction Printer?
                                           By Roberto Sedycias

Multifunction printers are becoming increasingly popular these days due to their ability to perform many
functions at a time. They are not only cost-effective but also space-saving.

 If you have a small office or if you are operating from your home office, multifunction printers can be of
great solution for your space constraint. It is really exciting for you to find a machine that can print, fax,
copy and scan at a time. Many offices that have a shoe-sting budget prefer buying multifunction
printers that work for their purpose. Buying a multifunction printer should be an important consideration
for you as it involves a lot of research and shopping around as well. Following are a few points that talk
about the important aspects of multifunction printers.

Printer resolution:

 Printer resolution is important to judge if you are considering about taking picture print-outs. Higher
resolution ensures quality prints. For most printing, except photo printing, the resolution of 600*600 will
be adequate. However, in multifunction printer the scanner resolution is generally low.

Multitasking ability:

 Be sure that the multifunction printer that you are taking truly has multitasking ability. The user should
be capable of using it at the same time when the other facets are in use. If all the functions in the
machine are not accessible simultaneously, then there is no reason why one should pay for a
multifunction printer.

Connection to network:

 The multifunction printer needs to have the ability to get integrated into your existing network. If it is
easy to deploy with minimum start-up training it is better. While purchasing a multifunction printer, look
for the software that comes with it to guide through the process of installation, upgrading or

Automatic document feeders:

 There are some low priced multifunction printers that do not allow automatic document feeder. If your
printer does not have that function, you will have to stand by the side of your printer and feed it every
single paper. The multifunction printer that holds at least 50 sheets can be considered as a good one.

Total value of the printer and ink cost:

 If the printer you buy consumes a large chunk for the ink you will use in it, you will be in a bad deal. A
useful multifunction printer can control the cost of your printing and imaging and produce the result
effectively and efficiently.

Compatible software and solution:

                                                                                                            Page 3

 This is one of the most important aspects that you should consider before buying a multifunction
printer. There could be a possibility that the software offered with the multifunction printer may not be
compatible. Hence, you should get clear idea about the software that is compatible with the
multifunction printer. Your requirements:

 Understand your requirements from the printer and buy accordingly. There may be many other things
that you want from your multifunction printer beyond printing and copying like reducing paper,
managed forms and simplifying work flow. Other requirements like fax, scan, email jobs, number of
people sharing the device, color capability, etc are also taken into consideration.

Test before purchasing:

 The best thing you can do before buying your multifunction printer is to test it. Make sure that each
function works properly in the way they should. There is no harm in asking your dealer for
demonstration. Read the instructions carefully before using the device.


 Although buying a multifunction printer is a great idea, one should consider individual requirements
thoroughly before buy one. If you are running a business where you depend on a photocopy machine
quite frequently, you may not benefit much from buying a multifunction printer as it may or may not suit
your requirement when it comes to the speed factor. Similarly, if you are looking for high-resolution
scanning or cutting-edge faxing features, you have to consider buying a specialized machine instead of
going for a multifunction printer.
