Ok here is the the situation I am on a course to do with my job.

I really need a multifunction print,copy,scan,fax,photo all in one device as the work ones are used by others and can be annoying waiting to use them when you have other things to do and I do not have much space in barracks.

Anything else that they can do?

All I know is I should get one that has seperate ink bottles so I do not have to replace all the colours at the same time.

Any recommendations on makes,models to check out/buy in Chirstchurch please, is REALLY appreaciated as I am on course and do not have much time to do alot of this myself.

An example I started one day at 0730hrs finished at 1700hrs had an assignment to do for the next day finished that at 2330hrs.So I am really tied and have not much spare time to do things.

So please leave advice,tips,help,anything you can think of that would help and I will post back When I am not working or catching up on sleep:(

Thank you.:thumbs:

I brought the Brother MFC-215C (http://www.dse.co.nz/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/452df7d30dcbbe04273fc0a87f990713/Product/View/F0571) a few mths ago. Scanning is fast, it has card slots on the front.

It can also copy and its a fax as well.

And it can be updated with firmware.

And there's 4 separate ink tanks.

And it can fax in B&W or colour.

And can be used with a phone/TAM if u have either.

Only thing I dont think it comes with a USB 2 cable. You have to buy it. I just used the cable from the old printer.

For knowledge is power,to share knowledge is wisdom.(my Grandma told me this.)
Speedy Gonzales thank you once again.

Anybody else feel free to share as I dont really know what to buy as long as it has those features and is say between $100-$300 nz $ of course.
