Most bang for the buck


I was looking for a great laser printer which could do everything at around 170 dollar budget with tax and this computer meets all those requirements. A flatbed scanner would be better but with the price and features that is a minor issue at best.

Does what it says

fax is only 14.4 and no flatbed scanning

Cost of toner, but NewEgg has the lowest price around. I have the 2040 version also and refill those toner cartridges. Never get the OEM printing quality though

Excellent performance and price


Our small office had a fax machine already but no way to copy or scan legal sized paper which we do very frequently. Enter the Brother® MFC-7220. This made short work of our copy and scan needs and we don't miss our old fax at all. The upgrade has...
