Despite all the above comments, I have three people who have a Xerox 4 in 1. Having seen all three in operation, it reminds me of the saying "Jack of all trades - master of none".
The only plus I can see is the ink cartridges are only about £4.95 each. There are four cartridges, 1 black and three colour. Don't let me put you off though, I haven't seen the HP or Lexmark so maybe they are a better bet.
I have a 680 printer and Canoscan scanner at the moment,the scanner is in the wardrobe until needed,am very much short on space + an old pc of mine has found its way to my brothers house so am taking this opportunity to solve a problem. Have been looking today at ink costs,the HP2210 I like[over budget?]and at the moment am leaning towards an Epson3200 or 5200 as the ink costs look a lot more attractive. If anyone has either of these their views would be appreciated. Coaster3 Dont require fax that is why the Epsons seem a good solution.Agree on the drawback but can handle that,just hope it gives up while under warranty and not the week after. Thanks for everyones input
Enter 'multifunction' in search above and you'll find additiopnal comments from last October click here I'm not trying to admonish, just pointing this out as you can get more comments and quickly. Things move/change fast in computerworld, but it strikes me the main argumants are still ink costs and 'one down, all down' syndrome.
I'd go for separates on desk-top racking to save space.
