Question All in one printer recommendation


Jul 27, 2013
I am looking for a recommendations for an all in 1 color (inkjet) printer. Id like to spend 300 or less, but would go up in budget if I had to. I don't think laser is a good option due to the cost of the printer and toner.

I plan to use this printer for mostly scanning and copying. I need something that will scan to PDF, print/scan color and double-sided. I probably wont be scanning more than 15 pages at a time, so something with a decent ADF that will not constantly jam.

I am open to different brands and even a discontinued model that I could find online if it's a good unit. I went to best buy the other day and they sold an HP 8025. It was the biggest piece of junk it jammed from the first document I tied to scan.

I would appreciate any suggestions

I have worked in the imaging industry for many years .... if your load is more on scanning then printing side and dont want to get into Laser (which has a much better cost per page value) you may want to look into a dedicated scanner instead of a MFP Imaging Unit - toner costs may be scary but end users need to recognize yields of consumables - that's where the ROI plays heavily

You will end up spending way more with an inkjet over time. What a colossal waste of money

$318 for new laser jet hp

HP Color LaserJet Pro M454dw Printer (W1Y45A)

This one does scanning and copying for even less money Brother HL-L3290CDW Compact Digital Color Printer Providing Laser Printer Quality Results with Convenient Flatbed Copy & Scan, Wireless Printing and Duplex Printing, Amazon Dash Replenishment Enabled

Inkjet printers are a complete waste of time and money and they are complete junk
