combination printer/scanner/photocopier - Mac Applications & Software

Hi. I recall seeing combination printer/scanner/photocopier units every now and then. (Perhaps with fax thrown in for good measure.) Do such critters exist that are Mac-friendly? With PostScript? Thanks. -- Art Werschulz (net) 207 Stoughton Ave Cranford NJ 07016 (908) 272-1146...

    Default combination printer/scanner/photocopier

    Hi.

    I recall seeing combination printer/scanner/photocopier units every
    now and then. (Perhaps with fax thrown in for good measure.)

    Do such critters exist that are Mac-friendly? With PostScript?

    Thanks.

    Sure. Check your favorite computer store. All the major printer
    manufacturers offer a Mac OS X friendly unit that has the features
    you want.

    I've got an HP PSC 1210, print quality and scanning is good but it can
    not be used to print via airport. I suspect that combination systems
    are not rendevous friendly. No postscript but why not print from a
    postscript viewer if thats what you need.

    I've only tried one such, and only for a short time now: hp 6110 model,
    about $200 factory refurbished (my spouse read good reviews of it and
    wanted it for her office setup).

    No real complaints, it seems to work (haven't tried out all its
    capabilities yet), but:

    1) When I clicked on the software installer, it said "Now installing
    16,937 items" -- really! (I think it installed a ton of stuff for the
    hp cameras, maybe).

    2) It has 42 -- count 'em, 42 -- buttons on the front panel.

    3) It's not huge -- but it's not small either, and basically awkward to
    work with.

    4) You're always worrying about, will all the capabilities work
    together, and with the rest of your system? -- and if it doesn't, or if
    one component doesn't really suit you, will you be able to mix and match
    with any other brands?

    Bottom line: Sounds at first like a good idea, but for me, I'll stick
    with having separate modem, scanner, and printer, so I can pick the
    individual models and brands whose hardware and software I really like,
    e.g. Epson CanoScan LIDE scanner (excellent!), TelePort/GlobalFax or
    Apple built-in modems and fax software, Apple or hp LaserJet printers.
