Wireless Home Printer - print, copy, scan n fax

Postby Jennifer » Sun Apr 19, 2015 11:12 am

Hi,

like to gather some advices for a home printer that can print, copy, scan and fax and has wireless features.

The existing Brother MFC 490CW is encountering more paper jams problems these days.

my HP deskjet 2540 can print, scan and copy. also has Bluetooth. cannot fax. compact and value for money.

My liao pok gar canon printer also can scan, print and copy but cannot fax. Wireless too. This printer, when jam, almost all the time is because of the paper itself. Eg if the paper is not slot properly or if the paper is a little curved (like when you use recycled paper).

my printer needs lots of TLC and patience...or else the rollers will spoil.
very low end kind of printing...mostly for kids' schedules, photocopy some simple memos...scan very seldom.

I have two bad experiences with HP printer, never again would I buy another HP printer :wink: I am just a stubborn senior-citizen-to-be :lol:

There are people who still fax, the less IT savvy ones who grow up with fax machine, dunno how to use scan and email.
