Have narrowed it down to 3. These are all pretty big units, definitely "office" sized. I figure that an investment like this is worth it. We're landlords again (topic for another thread), my wife has a home business, and I've got kids getting into elementary school... seems like it's time for a real printer. For $300'ish, these things have a bunch of cool features. They all do print/scan/fax/copy. All have a manual document feeder and you can single-feed paper into the printer. They all connect to the web an have all sorts of remote printing options . Scan directly to PDF. Print on card-stock and envelopes.

The next step up in the model lineup is about $150 more. For that you get dual/sided printing and scanning (duplex), and a secondary paper tray. The print/scan tech is no better though.

I think I'm gonna be pretty happy with one of these... any opinions.

Duplex printing is nice (from experience), duplex scanning is even nicer. That'd be my vote. And can the unit scan to FTP? For me that'd be the trifecta.

My Brother tabloid size multi-function can do everything but the duplex scanning. Having it scan to a file on a FTP directory is a life saver on a multipage document.

All of those will scan onto a network if that's what FPT means.

The wife just emailed and says those are too big. SRSLY WOMAN!!! Anyways, I'm back to looking at smaller ones. She says she wants to be able to print awesome pictures with them as well and is trying to steer me towards and inkjet. Looks like I'm not going to be able to go huge on this one. Still doing homework... now back to "home office" type injets again. At least we've got the budget to get whatever the best one is.

Tell her to buy a photo specific inkjet printer to put in a drawer for the rare occasion that she will print display quality photos. Most people aren't going to notice a difference in a photo during the 0.8 seconds that they actually take to look at a printed photo.

Or else give her $100 limit to go buy a printer, and you buy something decent when you get home
