LF Printer that can duplex scan...
« on: January 04, 2017, 08:25:47 PM »
I could really do with a new printer at home as my Samsung has sort of died. Things I would like:

-Mono is fine
-Laser is nice
-Double sided scanning

Any suggestions? I found a Xerox for R999 that does it all except the double sided scanning which is kind of important for me.

I've looked quite a but my dad is a insurance broker and needs to scan all his files to back them up as per regulations

the only printers that are reasonably priced which duplex scan are the top of the range hp office jet the more expensive lasers dont do duplex scanning

he's been through a hp 8500, then a hp8600 plus and is on a hp 8620 that we bought a few month ago

there is a 8720 and 8730 that are new , the 8730 is the only one that scans both sides simultaneously and it costs 5k, the 8620 that we bought cost around R3700 but it scans one side at a time and has to flip the page a bit slower but the printer is a lot cheaper

the cherry on top with these is that if you register them with hp within a few days of purchase you get 3 years of warranty and they do have issues so it helps with the warranty , the only reason we replaced the 8600 is because the warranty was up it still worked very well

Thanks, maybe i'll have to save up a bit. I was hoping for a cheap option without all the bells and whistles.

Yep, that's what I need. It's a pain to do a 20 page double sided application form manually. I'm trying to avoid going into the office unless it's really necessary or there's cake.

Duplex scanning works great.

Don't do much printing but it's nice when I need something quick.
