Multifunction Devices: More Space On The Desktop!

Brother MFC-590

With a focus on business, its control panel recalls that of a photocopier. The page feeder is handy: it simplifies batch photocopying and fax transmission. On the other hand, it's a shame the MFC is so bulky and that its prints are not better. Its maximum quality may be inadequate for business use.

Canon SmartBase MPC400

Based on the S630 motor, the SmartBase MPC400 prints fast and well in all resolutions, and is the cheapest of all in ink costs. But this device is harder to control than the Lexmark and HP models. It is also much bigger and not really very well designed for home users.
