Small Businesses nowadays need versatile, compact and efficient printers, just like the companies they’re helping administrate, which is why all-in-one printers with scanner, fax machine, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, Web printing, memory card and USB ports and automatic cartridge reordering systems have become the norm in small business endowment.
HP Officejet Pro 8600

The printer’s media handling is excellent as it will load any paper type in either of its two trays. This robust all-in-one takes up a good deal of desk space, but everybody is raving about how reliable and resilient it is.

It can connect to all manner of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth device and the print quality is outstanding for a portable printer. On the flip side, it can operate slowly, it is limited to 50 sheets, and will require you to feed the scans in one at a time, flipping the pages manually for double-sided printing.
