Ten... mono laser all-in-one printers

Product RoundupProduct Roundup The mono laser all-in-one has taken the place of the friendly photocopier in many an offices, at home or at work. In some cases, it has incorporated the fax machine, too. Although in essence it’s a laser printer with a scanner stuck on top, it’s more than the sum of its parts. Most folk use laser all-in-ones as much, if not more, for making copies than for printing, with scanning coming a useful third and fax bringing up the rear. Laser print continues to offer better black text quality than inkjet. Although page print costs are rarely lower than those of equivalently priced inkjets, the much higher capacities of toner cartridges make them seem cheaper to run.
