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.

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.

I don't have wifi or dsl or satellite internet at home. We only have internet on our phones. I want to be able to print things off of my phone occasionally. Which printer will work well for me? Would I have to save anything I want to print and then Bluetooth it? Would a wireless printer have any benefit? Which budget printer is the best fit?

This is for home use, but I'd like something to grow into. Best value for the dollar is always good! What will the 922 do that the 492 will not, or visa versa? Your thoughts?
