It used to be that setting up a home office could be really really expensive, costing hundreds if not thousands in equipment like printers, scanners, copiers and fax machines. That has all changed these days, however, as with the advent of all-in-one machines you can get multiple office devices rolled into one. Often costing just a few hundred dollars these all-in-ones can save you so much hassle and of course a whole heap of cash.
1. Epson Expression Premium XP-820
If a large part of your business requires that you print picture quality prints then the Expression Premium may be the all-in-one for you. This quality piece of kit produces great prints with rapid print and scan speeds. Capable of copying, scanning, printing and faxing this is a really handy office printer for less than $150 a bargain.
2. Canon Pixma MG56720
A new home business may not have much cash flow so a great all-in-one to start with might be the MG56720 from Canon. Coming in at around $72, this is a really good quality budget option that can print, copy and scan.
3. Canon Pixma MG7520
When you really need to kick out the prints or copies then you will want a machine that can handle that and the MG7520 from Canon is just such a device. Offering high quality prints, this model also sports one of the fastest printing speeds and rates on the all-in-one market.
4. Brother MFC-J5620DW
If your business needs a little more flexibility when it comes to print size then the MFC-J5620DW from Brother may be the best choice. Allowing you to create larger tabloid-sized prints as well as standard size, this model is also pretty economical on the ink. This means that the per-print cost price is around 4 cents compared to the 8-9 cents that many other all-in-ones can run you.
5. HP OfficeJet 4630
This model from HP is probably the premier option as a small business all-in-one boasting a home printer tag with professional printer capabilities. A document feeder that can handle 35-pages means you can batch-print with this and a separate set of fax controls makes this a handy office tool.
