February 9, 2007, Newsletter Issue #25: Is the Best Photo Printer for You Not a Printer?

Tip of the Week

When is a printer not a printer? When it's an all-in-one, or multifunction. The best photo printer for many people may just be one of these “Swiss Army Knives” of the digital world.

All-in-ones usually combine at least a printer, scanner and stand-alone copier. Many others add fax capability. If you have limited space - or want, but can't afford, three or four devices – consider an all-in-one with photo printing capability.

How's the quality? Remarkably good. Three typical models – the Canon Pixma MP500, the Epson Stylus Photo RX700 and the HP PhotoSmart 3310 – represent a range of prices and all scored very well in reviews. Two are photo-quality printers combined with scanners and copiers. The third – the HP model – also faxes.

Of course, there are many other models – and manufacturers - to choose from. If you're pinching pennies or short on space, one of these all-in-ones can give you good quality prints in a nice combo package.
