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

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]

Flexible Networking and High Accuracy with HP’s ScanJet Pro 4500 fn1 Network Scanner

Flexible Networking and High Accuracy with HP’s ScanJet Pro 4500 fn1 Network Scanner

The flagship in HP’s line of flatbed ScanJet Pro document scanners, the 4500 fn1 Network Scanner ($899) is similar in many ways to the ScanJet Pro 3500 f1 Flatbed Scanner. Unlike its less-expensive sibling, though, the 4500 is networkable via both Ethernet and Wi-Fi, scans faster, and has a higher daily duty cycle. It’s also quicker than the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula DR-2020U,... [Read more]

Comfort and Multiple Device Paring with Logitech’s MK850 Performance Wireless Combo

Comfort and Multiple Device Paring with Logitech’s MK850 Performance Wireless Combo

Unless you buy an upscale gaming or some other specialized PC, chances are the keyboard and mouse that comes with your new computer is boringly and often uncomfortably basic, and more than likely wired via separate USB cables for both devices. If you spend a lot of time typing and mousing around, you might want to consider something easier on your wrists and fingers, such as the Logitech MK850 Performance... [Read more]

Local Backups and 4K Ultra HD Media Streaming with Seagate’s Personal Cloud (3TB)

Local Backups and 4K Ultra HD Media Streaming with Seagate’s Personal Cloud (3TB)

If you’ve been in the information technology (IT) business as long as we have, we’re sure that you marvel at the evolution of its terminology the same way we do. Take, for example, the term “cloud,” which emerged in the 1990s as an abstraction for the complicated inner workings of the telephone company, and later to represent the massive infrastructure of the Internet. The term... [Read more]

Excellent Prints, Scans, and Copies with Canon’s Color imageClass MF731Cdw

The Canon imageClass MF731Cdw ($489) is a color laser multifunction printer (MFP), designed for use in a small office or workgroup. Like the Editors’ Choice Samsung Multifunction Printer ProXpress C3060FW, the MF731Cdn prints well at decent running costs, but unlike the Samsung, its automatic document feeder (ADF) is not auto-duplexing, nor does it support near-field communication (NFC). Even... [Read more]

Print, Scan, Copy, and Fax Tabloid with Brother’s Inexpensive-to-Use MFC-J6935DW AIO Printer

It wasn’t all that long ago that wide-format inkjet printers (models that handle paper larger than legal-size, or 8.5×14 inches) were not only rare, but also rather expensive. Even today, most of the major printer manufacturers—HP, Epson, Canon—offer only a few wide-format machines. But Brother has changed all that, offering most of its Business Smart and Business Smart Plus all-in-one... [Read more]

Versatility, Wide-Format, and Low Running Costs with Brother’s MFC-J5930DW Inkjet AIO

Brother’s inkjet multifunction printers just keep getting better and better, as demonstrated by today’s review unit, the $299.99-list MFC-J5930DW, and the Brother MFC-J6935DW we reviewed alongside it. As one of the company’s INKvestment models, the MFC-J5930DW is one of the least expensive business-oriented all-in-ones (AIOs) on ink costs—especially for the price. It is loaded with features,... [Read more]

OKI’s Low-Priced C332dn Color Laser Printer – Good-Looking Prints, High CPPs

OKI’s Low-Priced C332dn Color Laser Printer – Good-Looking Prints, High CPPs

Not long ago, the conventional wisdom was that high-volume printing was cheaper on laser and laser-class (LED-array) printers, as opposed to inkjets. For a similar spec of printer, laser-class machines cost more but were less expensive to use, while inkjets cost less but had higher running costs. Those days of such absolutes are over. Nowadays, laser-class printers, especially color ones, not only... [Read more]
