I have a HP G85 multifunction printer that is on the end of it's lifecycle, so I need to buy a new one. No not need fax anymore. Prining volum is rather low: About 200 pages a month? I am more concerned about the variable cost of each print, than the size initial investment. THe G85 have served me for 10 years and hopefully my next device also will work that long.
My main requirements are:
Ethernet network connection
Automatic document feeder - at least 50 pages
Low price for each print
Compact in size
Can do photo printing, but not not need the best off all quality in the photoprinting
Fast scanning, even at high resolutions with excellent results
Photo negative scanning in an efficient way (have lots of negatives I want to scan)
A3 scanning and printing would be nice, but that is just a wish...
What multifunction printers do you reccommend?
Is it better to buy to different devices: One printer and one scanner, with my requirements?
Thanks in advance!

Given the poor build quality of many peripherals and high repair costs these days I think it is risky buying multifunction devices.
