There are a lot of inkjet "all in one" units, but I don't know how many laser "all in one" units are out there. Try searching the EPSON and HP web sites. I personally prefer Epson, but there are very good units from Brother, Lexmark, HP and Epson. For laser units try Minolta, Xerox, HP. A Google search will turn up a lot of places to look.

I guess you are aware that almost all current scanners have a copy button. You push the button and a copy comes out of your printer. I mention this because you have more choices if you get the components separately.

You probably want a laser printer. For an office it is the only thing that really makes sense for a lot of output. Ink costs are off the wall expensive after a while with an inkjet. You haven’t told us whether you need color output.

Many people like HP for laser printers, but I don’t see a multifunction color laser with a document feeder in your price range. This isn’t very fast but has all the features you need: http://consumer.usa.canon.com/ir/controller?act=ModelDetailAct&fcategoryid=125&modelid=10561

Be aware that some color inkjet multifunction machines come with photo printers. That sounds like a good deal, but not as an “only” machine and especially not in an office. You either have to swap out cartridges to get a pigmented black or it doesn’t come with a pigmented black at all. You need a large pigmented black tank for fast and dark text at a reasonable price per page.

With all due respect I don’t find Epinions reliable at all. People can write well but not really know dung about computers. I don’t care that Dewy Dimwit can’t get the software running on his multifunction machine.

jd, with all due respect, I believe you have taken Slipe's comment regarding HIS opinion of Epinions way out of context here. I think you'll agree once you look at what was said again.

I guess I didn’t make that very clear. Anybody can post a review there and you have no idea of their qualifications. At equipment review sites they have usually reviewed other comparable units and can give reasonable comparisons. Professional reviewers also seem to get equipment and software set up properly and don’t go off on tangents about things a reasonable person could probably sort out quickly.

My sincerest apologies if it appeared I was referring to your opinions in a negative way. I wasn’t.
