The HP LaserJet M1522nf is a multifunction printing / scanning machine. The main use of this machine in our office is as a photocopier. It was chosen as it was one of the only laser printers capable of photocopying that we found that only has black capability. It is networkable, and I have used it over the network as a printer and a scanner. You can also use it as a fax but I haven t had an opportunity to try faxing yet. The print quality is excellent, and there are a minimal number of jams.
