Hi Everyone,
We have a volunteer who works the front desk signing in visitors.  We need a small-ish desktop size copier that is relatively quick.  We currently have a Dell all-in-one on the desk but it's farily slow and we don't need all the other functions.  Can anyone recommend anything for a couple hundred dollars?  We don't need a large heavy duty copier, just something quick and relatively inexpensive on consumables.

Thanks

If you only want B&W, try this:

I also like Samsung's peoducts. I would strongly recommend lasers over inkjets. And, if you also want to use it as a printer, get one with a network i/f.

Thx. Is about 25-30 ppm about the best we can expect?  That's about what our all in one laser gets. We want this just for copying.

It all depends on how much you're willing to pay for it. The higher the price, the faster it prints - as a rule of thumb. Certainly, for a couple of hundred dollars you won't get anything that does much more than 25 ppm.

I don't know of any low cost copier-only machine; they're either printer-only or MFP. I have seen high-end systems without interface, so they can only copy and fax - but the optional i/f alone will be well over "a couple of hundred dollars".

Thx. We only need black and white. Can anyone recomend a reliable copier/printer only for around $ 300?

The Xerox 3210 fits that quite nicely, as does the Samsung SCX-4826FN

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
