Looking At A Cheap All-In-One Printer, Scanner and Fax Machine
As a small start-up business, I find myself need to do the typically office administrative work like printing, making copies of documents, and every now and then sending out a fax.
I didn't want to spend too much money either, so I came across this multi-function unit. This one is the HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier (CB656A). Looks like it prints some decent documents. I don't really need anything fancy because I'm not going to be printing any images from a digital camera or anything. The last time I went to the UPS store to print and fax some documents, it ended up costing me somewhere around the neighborhod of $30.
After realizing how much I spent on one trip to the UPS store, I realized that I could have purchased my own equipment if I made two more visits in the rest of the year. I figured already that I would need to print and fax, so I might see about getting a deal on this one. Another cool part about the device is that it can scan too, so that comes in handy for making copies of receipts or any other business documents, and then store them on a server. This particular one is less then $100, so I figure it's a good deal. You can buy one from Amazon too if you want free shipping.
