Depends on the quality of the print and scan.
For my needs, i e any non-critical needs (for the real jobs we have
special equipment) I settled on an HP CM1312nfi MFP.
It works with OI, and it even says so in the marketing blurbs. (It says
solaris, but that's almost as good.)
I had no problem, I used it in postscript mode only, until I could get
my head around CUPS.
Scanning and fax are NOT supported in OI, as far as I can see!
I would like to be proven wrong: but xscanimage and xsane just crash.
It's not duplex, but I think there's a version for that at another 1-200
This is at home, but we use it professionally.
For scanning we whip out a VBox XP, fax is used from the printer itself.
I was surprised at the number of companies and private citizens out
there that are much easier to communicate with on fax...
