All In One Printer Scanner Copier Fax


All in one printer scanner copier fax machines are a real boon for a business office whether that’s a small home office or a large corporation. They save a lot of space in your office because these machines do the work of four separate machines and of course are money-saving because you do not have to spend money on four separate units – you can just buy one that does the four operations.

So while they are space-saving and money-saving and do a good job of performing each function they are designed for, they may not do every function as quickly as a machine designed to do just the one particular function. This is when you really have to do your homework and do some research on the particular machine you going to purchase.

For example an all in one printer scanner copier fax machine may not print as quickly as one that is designed to just perform that one single function. So if you do a lot of printing in your business you have to make it a point to really check how many pages the multifunction machine will print per minute. Obviously, the multifunction machines that are in a higher price bracket usually have a higher print per minute speed than a lower-priced one, but if you do your due diligence you should still be able to find a moderately priced machine that can do your print jobs at a decent speed.

Another point to consider is how many megabytes of memory the all in one laser printer scanner copier fax machine has. For a small home office that doesn’t require a huge amount of copying, printing or scanning you could probably get away with a memory of say 16 MB but for a larger business where the workload of printing copying and scanning is great you want to get a machine that has higher megabytes of memory, 32 MB or more.

Image quality is another factor to be considered when researching all in one printer scanner copier fax machines. Are you going to be printing photo quality color images and therefore need a higher dpi (dots per inch) resolution of say 1200 x 600 dpi. This is the ideal for color documents to prevent the image appearing grainy when printed. Or maybe the standard resolution (600 x 600 dpi) will be sufficient for your office needs. Just keep in mind that the higher the dpi the better quality image you are going to get.

If you do a lot of scanning work and your scanned images need to be of a high quality check the scanner resolution of the multifunction machine as these can be low and if you need good quality scan images you may be disappointed with the outcome.

Fax speed is another consideration to look at. You’ll want your all in one printer scanner copier fax machine to have an integrated fax/modem with a minimum speed of 33 kbps. This speed will allow your faxes to go through quickly and not take up a lot of time on your phone line, and will save you money. Fax modems that have a lower speed will end up costing you more for your faxes. You also want to make sure that the multifunction machine you choose has full fax functions that include color faxing and fax broadcasting.
