Roundup: Small Business All-in-one Printers

Wired: Roundup – Small Business All-in-one Printers

Surprise: the winner is Lexmark, a perennial fourth fiddle to HP, Canon and Epson in the printer market. In this match-up of $200-to-$300 small business multifunction printers, the $200 Lexmark product is the editor’s choice.

”Printers remain the lifeblood of the home and office, but you really want them to do more in exchange for the desktop real estate. These four all-in-one printers do double-sided output, copy, and scan—and all hook up via USB or Wi-Fi.

1. Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901

It’s no speed freak—less than 10 black-and-white pages per minute—but the Pinnacle Pro901 produced the best color prints in our roundup and very good black-and-whites, too. Scanning was a weak spot, with iffy color accuracy and text that looked a bit squished—although it did boast the quickest scan speed. Setup was a total breeze, and using the unit is a snap thanks to a spacious touchscreen display with an intuitive interface. That it costs just $200 merely seals the deal.”
