Anyone recommend an inexpensive fax appliance under $1000 to replace a fax machine that will do typical emailing of incoming faxes along with ability to print to network printer.
Used to be famaliar with Castelle products in past but it is too expensive for this client.

Thanks

Multitech had a nice 1 port unit FaxFinder FF130 that was around $700.  Unfortunately they updated their fax product line and dropped the 1 port model completely.  You might be able to find one new in stock somewhere.

The new 2 port models are around $1300 street price.  I have not used one of the new models yet but the prior models are really good.

Given the upfront costs for a fax server,  using a fax service instead can be pretty reasonable depending on the amount of fax traffic involved.  Often its cheaper than the cost of the phone line for the fax machine.  Services like efax.com or myfax.com start around $10-15 month.
