multi-function printers

Hi folks,

Having just upgraded to a new PC with XP(sp2) I have found that my (5year)old scanner is not happy with the new OS. My similarly old Epson 760 printer has been really well used and will certainly be expiring before too long.
Hence, I have been thinking about an 'all-in-one' printer/scanner/copier.
I have a tendency towards Epson, as my 760 has proven to be streets ahead of other people's printers, over the years.
The spec and price of the CX3600 look appealing.
Any observations, criticisms, or suggestions, please.

I have just bought an Epson RX620 all in one and I am absolutely delighted with it.

The "copy" facility is so easy to use compared with a scanner and the ease with which you can enlarge/reduce and print without needing the computer is a real boon.

I had an Epson Perfection scanner and a Photo 895 printer set up which I have sold, do not hesitate, go for an all in one.

I use a couple of multi-function HP and Lexmark machines, both very good and very reliable, but print cartridges can get expensive, especially in the photo mode. Epson are renown for good quality machines and cheaper cartridge replacements, so you should have a good purchase.

The only thing I have against MFDs is that if one module goes wrong the whole thing goes wrong. I had a friend who had a Xerox MFD. It would scan but it wouldn't print. Only way out was to put it in the bin and buy another printer and a separate scanner. I, personally, would not buy an MFD. I have two Epson printers, Stylus 895 and an Epson R200 plus an Epson 3170 scanner.
