Scan, Fax, and Photocopy

The four main functions of printers are: printing, scanning, photocopying, and faxing. Either your device will be print only, print/scan/copy, or an all-in-one printer that does printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Note that scanning and copying almost always come together, since the hardware for these features overlaps significantly. Generally speaking, all-in-one printers are larger, so those with space constraints may find this to be an inconvenience. Additionally, printers with a fax feature are typically more expensive. It would be wise to only consider this feature if you plan to fax often. If not, you’ll be satisfied with a print/scan/copy device.

LCD

Printers with an LCD screen/display give you the option to control some settings directly on the printer, such as a one-touch print, scan, copy, or fax. You may also be able to adjust print quality, preview the print job, and/or view connection settings. Some screens are programmed to offer setup instructions for easy installation.

Does the HP office jet 3830 has all in one and mobile printing. It is not an InkJet. Do you have to take the ink program with the printer.
I wanted the envy 5540 all in one but were out and only by mail. I need asap.
The inkJet office jet, laser print and all those names confuse me. I have an envy HP 5660 and want something comparable. any suggestions don't want to spen an arm and a leg, it is for a student printing mobile.
