Panasonic KX-MB2030


The Panasonic KX-MB2030 monochrome laser printer delivers a full set of features in a compact printer.

Prints, scans, and faxes, including over a network. Standalone copier, fax machine. Automatic document feeder.

Somewhat slow. No duplexer. Relatively high cost per page.

Please please read the fine print it talks about color scanning and how fast that is but never states if the unit itself prints color and it DOES NOT. I tried to return it but was out of town when it came and the first color survey I tried to print was...
