I posted this entry about ‘Virtual Fax versus Fax Machine’ a while back. It talks about the necessity of sending outbound faxes and using an online fax system versus an actual fax machine. Nowadays, there are interesting printer choices for the home office that also include scanning and faxing capabilities. If you know you need to send those inevitable outbound faxes AND you know you need a printer, you might check into these devices.
They’re called “All in One” (AIO) printers and Hewlett Packard offers a wide variety of them – both in Laser and Ink Jet. You can review some of their models at their AIO page (link here). Some of them start at less than $200. They’re software integrated devices that will send your document out via an online fax service. Since the scanner is built in, the job of faxing a paper document is less cumbersome than it would be with a stand-alone scanner.
AIO printers can save you money and working space that would otherwise be required to buy and install a printer, fax machine, and scanner separately.
