Question ID: 111970
I am looking to purchase a black & white, lazer jet printer /fax
machine / copier / with scanner capabilities.  I currently have an
older Brother that has been great but it is so limited in memory that
it will no longer accomplish what I need to be done.  I have a Dell
Insperion (Windows 2000).  HP no longer sells the 3200 which seems to
be the last black and white lazer jet printer/fax around.  I can no
longer buy this new and HP wants almost $500 for a refurbished one. .
absolutely out of their minds.  I don't want or need color but I must
have the capability to send and receive on legal size paper.  What are
your suggestions for the most reliable printer / fax / copier /
scanner and where is the best place to buy it and the best price.  In
the very best of all worlds, it would also have a telephone hand set
this is not necessary.

Could you indicate the price range you're looking in? And could you
clarify whether you wish to buy this new, or would accept
refurbished/second hand products, if the price was right?

I would like to stay under $500 to $600.  I would prefer new because
most printer/faxes that handle legal paper come from mortgage
companies where they receive very hard usage - many copies per day -
rate sheets.  I have not had the best of luck with refurbished but
perhaps.  This will be for my home office.  I have a mortgage company
and have a 3200 in my office.  It is thrashed by receiving upwards of
200 copies on a low-use day.  thanx for asking

Hi schmooz,

You may be interested in the line of Multi-function devices from
Brother. I have an MFC-4650 myself, and have been happy with it. It is
reliable and inexpensive to operate.

There is a page that lists all the Multi-fuction devices that Brother
sells at:

Specifically, you may wish to look at:
It has a mail-in rebate and has everything you want except for the
telephone handset.

Alternatively, you may wish to look at:
It is a bit cheaper, but has the telephone handset.

Brother is easily purchased at most large office supply
stores/computer stores.
You should also be able to find these models at:
