Trying to decide what to do.
I have a canon MP530 multi function, it has a standalone fax (no pc required), CD/DVD printing, ADF for scanning etc.
It does it's job. But upon moving to W2k8 Server I've had real issues getting it running there are no official W2k8 drivers (there are W7 x64 ones though) and I can get the printer function going, but not the scanner.
So I'm left with a couple of options.
Get some USB print server device for the printing - but I dont know of any that will do the scan to email.
Or find a printer that will do the networking built in (including the network scanning - I prefer scan to email over network scanning - but I'll take what I can get).
The ADF is important - duplexing will be nice but not essential.
Duplex printing again nice but not important.
I could probably drop the faxing and use a laptop as and when faxing is needed.
The CD/DVD Printing is also a nice to have.
Any recommendations? Either solutions, or printer models.
Edit: Print volumes are pretty low, likely to be maybe 5 pages a week - if that.
