No PC Required with Apparent’s Doxie Q Mobile Document Scanner

No PC Required with Apparent’s Doxie Q Mobile Document Scanner

The Apparent Doxie Q ($299.99), like the IRIScan Anywhere 5, is an uber-portable document scanner that, unlike much of the competition, doesn’t need to be attached to a PC to do its job. The primary differences between the Doxie Q and the Anywhere 5 are that the former comes with an automatic document feeder (ADF), where the latter requires you to feed it manually, one page at a time. On the... [Read more]

Massive Tabloid (and other) Output for Large Workgroups – HP’s PageWide Pro 750dw

Let’s say that your organization (or your very, very busy home office) needs to churn out 20,000 or so high-quality prints each month, and some of them (perhaps all of them) must be tabloid-size (11×17 inches). You’re considering purchasing one of Brother’s Business Smart Plus all-in-one (AIO) printers—maybe our highly capable Editors’ Choice pick, MFC-J6935DW, or perhaps the HP... [Read more]

Superb Print Quality and Low Cost Per Page with Brother’s HL-L8360CDW Color Laser

A Slick Little Inexpensive iPad-alike, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3

A Slick Little Inexpensive iPad-alike, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3

The release of new Android-tablet contenders has slowed to a trickle over the past few years, and many of these models have been designed to mimic one or the other of the immensely popular Apple iPads. Take today’s review unit, the $259.99-MSRP Mi Pad 3, for example, from Xiaomi. (Xiaomi is a very big name in China, where it is best known for its smartphones, but it is much lesser known here in the... [Read more]

Exceptional Print Quality – Canon’s Color imageClass MF634Cdw Personal Laser MFP

Exceptional Print Quality – Canon’s Color imageClass MF634Cdw Personal Laser MFP

A $399 list price places the Canon Color imageClass MF634Cdw neck and neck with the Editors’ Choice HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw among low-volume personal color laser all-in-one (AIO) printers. It’s also suitable for light-duty use in a micro or small office or workgroup. Unlike the HP model, though, the MF634Cdw comes with a duplexing automatic document feeder (ADF) that supports... [Read more]

An Attractive, Nimble, and Capable Color Laser-Class MFP – the OKI MC573dn

Every so often, when some of the major makers of laser and laser-class printers (Brother, Canon, and OKI, for instance) update their stables of small-business and workgroup printers, they all seem to land at the same time. Like here in mid-2017. We’ve got reviews of laser-class stand-alone (printer-only) and multifunction (print/copy/scan/fax) models in the hopper for all but HP, and that company... [Read more]

HP’s Inkjet Laser Alternative Standalone HP OfficeJet Pro 8216 Printer

Essentially a two-drawer version of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8210, the OfficeJet Pro 8216 ($179.99) is notably slower than its less expensive sibling, but overall print quality is markedly better. A single-function color inkjet business printer, it’s comparable in features and capacity to the Editors’ Choice Canon Maxify iB4120 Wireless Small Office Inkjet Printer, but it costs a little more.... [Read more]

Logitech’s K480 Multi-Device Keyboard Pairs with Three Devices and OSs Simultaneously

Logitech’s K480 Multi-Device Keyboard Pairs with Three Devices and OSs Simultaneously

Many of the keyboards we’ve looked at lately have been multi-device models, in that you can pair two or more computing devices—smartphones, tablets, PCs, Macs—to them simultaneously, and then switch back and forth with the touch of a button. Aside from Microsoft’s Universal Foldable Keyboard ($70), though, none have been small enough to consider carrying around with you – except Logitech’s... [Read more]
