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.

Hello, I'm looking at choosing between a Mx 922 and an HP 6078 (The 6978 isn't available as a choice for tagging so I picked the 6968). I can get the hp for 10 dollars more than the cannon. s it worth it?
I use it for lite home office work. 100 pages a month max. Photos would be nice but not really a big deal.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

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?
