The Best MFPs for Business

PCmag@Work (Small Business): The Best MFPs for Business

This roundup includes best budget MFP, best monochrome MFP for small office, best color MFP for small office and so on. Five Editor’s Choice winners in all.

“Whether you prefer the term multi-function printer (MFP), all-in-on (AIO), or some other variation on the name (multi-function copier, or MFC, is still around), printers that do more than just print have some clear advantages over their single-function brethren; namely, they save space and money compared to buying multiple separate machines. And who doesn’t like saving space or money?

At a minimum, an MFP will give you a printer, copier, and scanner in one package. Beyond that, if it’s designed primarily for office use, it will usually work as a standalone fax machine, and may even work as a standalone e-mail sender. If it has fax capability, it may also let you fax a file from your PC’s drive without having to print it first. And whether it works as a direct e-mail sender or not, it may give you an easy way to scan documents and automatically attach them to an e-mail message you can send from your PC.”
