Scan Virtually Anywhere with the IRIScan Anywhere 5 WiFi Portable Scanner

There’s portable, and then there’s portable. With the $149 IRIScan Anywhere 5 WiFi manual sheet-feed document scanner, all you need to take with you is the scanner itself. No cables, laptop, tablet, or smartphone are required. The difference between it and its competitors, the Editors’ Choice Visioneer RoadWarrior X3 and Canon imageFormula P-215II Scan-tini Personal Document Scanner,... [Read more]

Microsoft’s Elegant and Versitile Universal Foldable Keyboard

Microsoft’s Elegant and Versitile Universal Foldable Keyboard

There’s no shortage of mobile keyboards in the world. Some, such as EC Technology’s Bluetooth Ultra-Slim Keyboard and the Jorno Keyboard, fold in thirds. Others, including VisionTek’s Waterproof Bluetooth Mini Keyboard and today’s review unit, Microsoft’s Universal Foldable Keyboard, fold in half. Nearly all are water resistant to some degree, and most of them support all three of the standard... [Read more]

Massive Storage for Less than Three Cents per Terabyte with WD’s My Book (8TB)

Massive Storage for Less than Three Cents per Terabyte with WD’s My Book (8TB)

At the risk of dating ourselves, not only do we remember when the highest-capacity hard drive you could buy was 10 megabytes (10MB), but some of us here at Computer Shopper actually owned machines with this piddling amount of storage in them. (A few of us go all the way back to when PCs had no hard drives at all, but instead stored the operating system and data on floppy disks that held less than a... [Read more]

Decent Prints from OKI Data’s LED-Based, Laser-Class C612dn Single Function Printer

Decent Prints from OKI Data’s LED-Based, Laser-Class C612dn Single Function Printer

It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed an OKI Data stand-alone (that is, print-only) color printer. The most recent was the wide-format-capable OKI C831n back in March of 2014. Like the subject of our review here today, this was also a laser-class printer. We call these machines “laser-class” because, though they look and act like laser printers, they use light-emitting-diode (LED) arrays,... [Read more]

Fast and Accurate Scanning with Brother’s Brother ImageCenter ADS-3600W Document Scanner

Fast and Accurate Scanning with Brother’s Brother ImageCenter ADS-3600W Document Scanner

A sheet-feed, network document scanner, the Brother ImageCenter ADS-3600W ($799.99) offers excellent value, with a solid feature set and strong performance. It’s not as elegant, nor is its software as network-friendly, as the Editors’ Choice Canon imageFormula ScanFront 400. The ScanFront 400, however, sells for more than twice as much and is limited to Ethernet connectivity, while the... [Read more]

Color Prints for Under One Cent with Epson’s Expression ET-2650 EcoTank All-in-One Printer

Color Prints for Under One Cent with Epson’s Expression ET-2650 EcoTank All-in-One Printer

A remake of the Expression ET-2550, the Epson Expression ET-2650 EcoTank All-in-One Printer ($299.99) is a low-volume inkjet all-in-one printer (AIO) with a feature set that relegates it to light-duty home use. Like Epson’s other “supertank” EcoTank models (and now Canon’s G-series MegaTank printers, including the similarly priced Canon Pixma G3200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One... [Read more]

HP’s Petite and Inexpensive Multifunction LaserJet Pro MFP M130fw Laser Printer

HP’s Petite and Inexpensive Multifunction LaserJet Pro MFP M130fw Laser Printer

The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M130fw ($259.99) is an inexpensive monochrome laser all-in-one printer (AIO) designed for micro- and home-office use. Given its compact size and feature set, it should perform well as a personal AIO, too. It’s significantly smaller and lighter than the Editors’ Choice Canon imageClass MF227dw, but even though both machines are similarly priced, the M130fw comes up... [Read more]

Tabloid Printing on the Cheap with Brother’s MFC-J5830DW Multifunction Business Printer

Tabloid Printing on the Cheap with Brother’s MFC-J5830DW Multifunction Business Printer

With its Business Smart series of multifunction printers (MFPs), Brother continues its tradition of offering highly useful business machines that are competitive values, as demonstrated with the wide-format-capable Brother MFC-J6535DW we reviewed recently. (We define “wide-format” here as tabloid printing, to 11×17-inch stock.) That Brother is fast, prints well overall, and, as one... [Read more]

Good-Looking Text and Graphics and a High Cost Per Page with Canon’s imageClass D1520

Good-Looking Text and Graphics and a High Cost Per Page with Canon’s imageClass D1520

The Canon imageClass D1520 ($324) is a monochrome laser all-in-one printer designed for medium-volume use in a small office or workgroup. It has high standard and optional paper capacities, but it doesn’t print photos and graphics as well as some competing models, including the Editors’ Choice HP LaserJet Pro MFP M426fdw. Unlike its more expensive sibling, the Canon imageClass D1550 , it... [Read more]

Canon’s Five-Ink Pixma TS6020 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer – Top Notch Photos

Canon’s Five-Ink Pixma TS6020 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer – Top Notch Photos

The Canon Pixma TS6020 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer ($149.99) is a relatively low-cost and low-volume photo-centric model designed for home use. Compared with the Editors’ Choice Canon Pixma TS8020, which costs only $30 more, you don’t get SD card and near-field communication (NFC) support, and the TS6020 uses five inks rather than six, which can affect print quality. And the absence... [Read more]
