Need AIO advice - any with transparency/negative scanning capability?
Posted by: SDGuy

Subject line says it all. Friend is asking me for advice on getting an all-in-one. Her requirements are:
- fax
- printing
- flatbed scanning
- negative (35mm) scanning
- photo printing (nice to have)

Any suggestions? Budget is $200 max

I've been using a Brother 7820N (B&W laser) for the past several years and while I'm very happy with the machine and all of its functions work reasonably well, I would have to say the scanner is the weakest of them. I would not anticipate it would work well if at all on negatives.

The scanner functionality is much easier to use under Snow Leopard now that it is supported by Apple's Image Capture app. The quality isn't much better, though.

Doesn't transparency (negative or slide) scanning require a lamp in the cover of the device? I have yet to see an all-in-one like that.

All the other features are in most current color AIOs. Canon is the favorite of the forum (and elsewhere).


Good luck.

The Canon MP 990 does not have fax. Here are the "office" models which have fax:
