There are plenty of all-in-one printer/scanner/copier/fax machines on the market, but most of them lack useful features found on a standalone fax or copier. But Epson’s $129 Workforce 610 Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer has every imagineable feature.
It sends and receives faxes, with a 30-page automatic document feeder, speed dial storage for up to 60 numbers, and fax memory for up to 180 pages when you’re out of paper or ink. It scans and copies at up to 2400 dpi and 25%–400% scaling. It prints at 5760 x 1440 dpi.
It has wireless networking as well as Ethernet and USB connectivity. And memory card slots for every kind of card, with a 2.5-inch LCD display for instantly printing photos. You can also use memory cards for saving scans.
