Would you buy a All-in-One?
Since All-in-One (printer, scanner, copier) are so popular nowadays, I wonder how many clubsnappers here own one or intend to own one. Otherwise, what deter you from buying one?

I have one that's used only for photocopying (no printing or scanning). works fine.

i understand that the cheaper all in ones are usually using inkjet to print. that may somewhat be a disadvantage if you are using it to photocopy?

it's not a problem. it wasn't meant as a highend fast speed photocopying machine (aka office/schoole photocopiers) it's only for occassional use.

I have an HP all-in-one served me well for years to scan/copy, fax and document printing, shared in my home network. Worth every cents.

hmm yeap, but my concern wasn't so much cos of speed, but more of issues like ink running when touching water or moisture from the hands, smudging etc...

I have a HP model and serves me well. Uses it for photocopying and printing for my daughter's school work. Also print photos for her. I print my photos on my own personal 7 ink tank Espon. Overall quite good for normal use.

My girlfriend has a HP all in one which came free when she bought a new laptop. I 'kapoh' it now and again to put my photos online to share with family and friends. The scan quality isn't there at all, and it can't scan slides, but for a free gift, guess it's alright.
