6 similarities we think are important to mention:
  • Both printers support two-sided printing
    Automatic duplex printing (also known as two-sided printing) refers to a printer's ability to print on both sides of the paper, without having to manually flip it.
  • Both printers have a built-in scanner & copier
    Scan and copy technology have a large hardware overlap. If a printer supports scanning, it will will likely support copying.
  • Both printers can scan/copy custom-sized documents (built-in flatbed scanner).
    Flatbed scanners allow scanning documents one by one. Unlike ADF scanners, you can only scan one page at a time. However, flatbed scanners allow you to scan custom-sized documents, like passports, drivers licenses, etc. Flatbed scanners also tend to produce higher quality images.
  • Both printers can scan/copy stacks of documents (built-in ADF).
    ADF, or Automatic Document Feeder allows a printer to scan or copy a stack of pages. This feature is so important that even the cheapest printers try to include it. Technically speaking, ADF is not a feature of the printer - it is a feature of the scanner or copier.
  • Both printers support two-sided scanning (duplex ADF scanner).
    A two-sided (duplex) ADF scanner allows scanning a stack of documents on both sides.
  • Both printers are energy star qualified.
    Energy Star is a set of standards that aims to reduce energy consumption of various devices. An Energy Star Qualified printer consumes less electricity to operate and is more environmentally friendly.

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.
