We’ve looked at a whole bunch of midrange all-in-one (AIO) inkjet printers recently, and many of them have had a few things in common. The most notable one is size, or lack thereof: Some, such as Epson’s Expression Premium XP-800 All-in-One ($279.99 at Best Buy), are much smaller than most full-featured multifunction machines we’ve seen to date. Plus, this recent batch, including the XP-800 and HP’s Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer ($149.99 at HP), are quite high-tech in appearance and even fashionable-looking.
Aside from looking good and being economical, the MFC-J4510DW has something else big going for it: the ability to print one-off ledger-size (11×17-inch) pages from a manual input tray on the back. That’s a feature totally unheard of in a printer as compact as this one. (Most printers that print to this size of paper are wide-carriage monsters.) And even though the printing is a little sluggish, the output quality is pretty good, especially when printing business documents containing images and graphics. We’ve seen better photo print quality, but this AIO’s image reproduction is way beyond passable.
Apart from the wide-format printing, this machine is loaded with other features, including a 20-page automatic document feeder (ADF) and a print engine with duplexing support, for churning out two-sided pages without manual intervention. It also has an updated 3.7-inch display that’s both touch- and gesture-sensitive. The screen helps you when you’re printing straight from several types of memory devices (i.e., printing without a PC) or downloading content from several cloud sites. It’s a big advance in control-panel quality from what we’ve seen on earlier Brother machines.
On the whole, we liked the MFC-J4510DW a bunch. Granted, its print quality with business documents is not quite laser-quality (versus that of, say, HP’s OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One–$217.47 at GoComputerSupplies.com), but it’s definitely close enough for most business applications. Apart from that caveat, we had few quibbles with this printer. We recommend it and knighted it with our Editors’ Choice award.

So-called “photo printers” that also double as all-in-one (AIO) copy/scan/fax machines are convenient hardware—but, too often, we run into a little problem with them: They cost more to use than similarly priced business AIO models. A good case in point? The $199-list HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer ($149.00 at PCNation.com). It, like many other photo-optimized AIO models we’ve tested, prints nice-looking photos. But everything else you print on this machine—such as business documents, flyers, and letters—costs more per page than when you print the same documents on a business-focused machine. That’s because the ink is more expensive, on a cost-per-page (CPP) basis, with this machine than on several comparably priced business-oriented models.
That said, you should ask yourself two important questions before buying a photo-optimized AIO like this one. First, does it actually print photos better than a comparable business-centric model? (Not all photo printers actually do.) And, second, is having the ability to print photos—in some cases, slightly better-looking ones—worth the extra expense you’ll incur when using it to print other types of documents? If you use your AIO a lot, over time, the cost difference can be substantial.
Also, dubbing a machine a “photo printer” doesn’t automatically mean it prints superior images. Canon’s photo-centric Pixma MG4220 ($99.00 at Amazon Marketplace), for instance, doesn’t churn out photos that look a whole lot better than those from several business-oriented AIOs, while, on the other hand, the company’s slightly higher-end Pixma MG5320 ($89.00 at Walmart.com) does. Both models, however, have high CPPs—too high, as we see it.
Without question, the Photosmart 7520 prints great-looking photographs, but then so does Kodak’s photo-optimized ESP 3.2 ($69.00 at Walmart.com), which costs half as much and offers significantly lower CPPs. The Photosmart 7520 does, however, provide, in addition to great photo printing, several other convenience features for the additional cost, such as an automatic document feeder (ADF) for copying, scanning, and faxing multipage originals, as well as support for memory cards and automatic two-sided printing.
This machine does load on the features compared to the $100 AIO set, and aside from the high CPP, we did find plenty to like about the Photosmart 7520. It’s high-tech, fancy-looking, even attractive. It has a handy, easy-to-use color touch screen for navigating features and making configuration changes. Plus, it supports HP’s printer apps, which allow you to download and print content from an ever-increasing number of providers on the Web. And in our tests, we found it very easy to set up, and it printed reliably.
Still, don’t be misled by the price: It may cost close to double what some entry-level inkjet AIOs do, but this is still a low-volume specialty machine that, over time, will cost you a good bit to use if you print much. We like it for homes and home offices that need to print quality photos, and occasionally need the convenience of a full-featured AIO. Households that care more about décor than price or cost of ownership will also like this machine—it has an interesting-looking form. But it’s not for heavy print duty, and it will cost you if you print plenty of images.

For some time now, we (as well as several other reviewers) have been predicting a convergence of the color inkjet and color laser printer markets—that the day would come when deciding between a multifunction color laser and a business-ready inkjet all-in-one (AIO) no longer constituted such a clear choice.
Looks like that day is here.
With each new manufacturing cycle, the distinction between these two imaging technologies (in terms of speed, output quality, and print volume) has become increasingly less…distinct. Nowadays, several higher-end business-centric inkjet models, such as HP’s OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One Printer, churn out prints as fast as (or, in some cases, faster than) some of their similarly priced laser counterparts. Plus, often, there’s no significant difference in output quality between the two technologies. As a matter of fact, inkjets frequently do a better job—especially when printing photographs and intricately shaded graphics.
Where most color lasers have held on to their supremacy, though, has been in their lower per-page operational costs, or cost per page (CPP). Traditionally, that has made them a better value over the long haul. In other words, laser machines are typically cheaper (often, much cheaper) to use. Small offices and businesses with high-volume print demands rely on them to help keep day-to-day printing costs down.
Enter Epson’s WorkForce Pro WP-4590 ($433.99 at TheNerds.net). This $499-MSRP inkjet AIO not only delivers one of the lowest per-page costs of ink we’ve seen, but it’s also one of the few inkjets we know that delivers CPPs close to or below those of several high-volume lasers. That makes the WP-4590 one of the most-economical-to-use multifunction printers on the market today for small and medium-size businesses.
In addition to the low per-page operational cost, the WP-4590 comes with a few other features that place it in direct competition with high-volume color lasers. It supports, for example, both of the two most common page-description languages, HP’s PCL and Adobe’s PostScript, used by the majority of laser printers. (We discuss why this is important in the Design & Features section on the next page.) In addition, its performance on our print-speed benchmark tests matched or exceeded the print times of several color laser models we’ve tested.
Not only is the WP-4590 fast and inexpensive to use, it prints great-looking documents and photographs. We were also impressed with how well it scanned and copied our test document pages and images. In fact, aside from its $499 list price, which is hefty for an inkjet AIO, and the lack of support for wireless networking and flash memory cards, we couldn’t find much to quibble about with this printer.
And in fact, when we wrote this, a few online outlets were offering this printer for more than 10 percent off the list price. Sure, $450 to $499 may seem like a lot to pay for an inkjet machine. But if you use this one for what it’s designed for—to print and copy hundreds, even thousands, of pages each month—what you save on ink will quickly make up for (and surpass) the difference in cost between the WP-4590 and most other high-volume inkjet AIOs.
When all else is equal—print quality, speed, ease of use, convenience features, and so on—our advice is to choose the model with the lowest CPP. In this case, the WP-4590 delivers the speed and economic benefits of a color laser, as well as the stellar photograph printing you’d expect from an inkjet. Unless you simply must have memory-card and Wi-Fi support, we can’t think of any reason not to recommend this printer.

After all our years of reviewing multifunction laser printers (and all sorts of other printers, mind you), we sometimes still can’t figure out how manufacturers determine which features to include—and how they set prices—for models within same family. A $100 price difference between, say, two similar HP lasers might get you a vastly different set of options than on two similarly classed Brother models. Often, it seems more like sharp-elbowed market jockeying than any rational balancing of features.
We do understand that pricing and features depend on competing products, parts and construction costs, market trends, and other factors, but too often, it seems that printer manufacturers aren’t working from the same market research. And they’re not all using the same playbook, that’s for sure. Case in point is Brother’s recently released MFC-8910DW, a multifunction (print/scan/copy/fax) monochrome laser that lists for $499.
The MFC-8910DW is essentially a pared-down version of the $599 MFC-8950DW we reviewed a few weeks before it. While we’re fairly certain that these two models cost about the same to manufacture, we find ourselves scratching our heads at just how much you give up for the $100 price difference between them. For example, the more expensive MFC-8950DW has a 500-sheet input drawer, compared to the MFC-8910DW’s middling 250-sheet input-tray capacity.
Also, the cheaper model has half the monthly duty cycle: 50,000 sheets per month, versus 100,000. (“Monthly duty cycle” is the total number of pages Brother says you can print each month without wearing out the printer prematurely.) And, on top of that, the MFC-8910DW doesn’t support Brother’s high-capacity (12,000-page) toner cartridges, which the MFC-8950DW does. That means you can’t get from the MFC-8910DW as low a cost per page (CPP) as you can from other models with this Brother engine inside.
Why is this perplexing? For one thing, these compromises are steep ones for $100—especially considering the MFC-8910DW’s already slightly high price—but here’s a bigger reason: Given the MFC-8910’s blazing print speeds and potential capacity, it, like its higher-priced sibling, is a high-volume laser. As you’ll see in our per-page cost comparison between these two Brother printers (in the Design & Features section on the next page), saving $100 up front on the purchase price might actually cost you before long. Because these are high-volume lasers, if you plan to use the MFC-8910DW for what it’s designed for—printing thousands of pages each month—the cost per page will catch up with you quickly.
That said, we still found plenty to like about this printer. Like most Brother lasers, it’s built to last; it prints good-looking black-and-white documents; it’s fast; and it’s easy to set up and use. Just keep those “buts” we just mentioned in mind: It costs a little too much for a printer that doesn’t print color, and if high-volume printing is what you’re looking for, the higher-priced MFC-8950DW (as well as several other models, including a few color lasers) will save you money—potentially, lots of it—over time.
The bottom line? The less you print, the more saving $100 on this model makes sense.

If Canon’s Pixma MG2220 were a summer movie, it would be the low-budget conclusion to a ho-hum trilogy. Of Canon’s summer-2012 photo-printer efforts, all of them entry-level all-in-one (AIO) photo inkjets, this one’s the cheapest. (The other models are the Pixma MG4220 and Pixma MG3220.) At the core, all three of these new Pixmas are direct rehashes of three models we saw in 2011: the Pixma MG4120, MG3120, and MG2120, respectively. Alas, those machines were not overly impressive in their time, and since so little has changed in the 2012 versions, the three newer models didn’t stand out, either.
At $69 list, the Pixma MG2220Best Deal: $59.11 at Amazon Store is the cheapest of the 2012 trio, and, as you’d expect, it has the fewest features. One of the least-expensive AIOs we’ve seen, it’s also one of the most stripped-down. Indeed, you give up a lot for the $10 difference between it and Canon’s next model up in this line, the MG3220Best Deal: $79.00 at Amazon Store. For example, the Pixma MG3220 supports wireless networking, printing to the machine from mobile devices, and automatic two-sided printing, all features the MG2220 does not.
To get certain other basic features in a Pixma machine (“basic” by today’s standards, anyway, such as a color LCD and printing from flash-memory devices and cloud sites), you’ll have to step up a bit further, to the $149-list Pixma MG4220Best Deal: $141.25 at ANTOnline. Of these three Pixmas, the MG3220, with its better connectivity options and auto-duplexing print engine, is the best value for the budget-strapped. (In our eyes, that model’s biggest trade-off is its inability to print directly from memory cards, something of a no-brainer for a photo printer.)
Under what possible circumstances, then, would the Pixma MG2220 make sense? If you have only one computer and no wireless network in your home—and you don’t think you’ll ever need to connect to the printer wirelessly, and you don’t mind flipping pages manually when you need two-sided prints—well, then, saving $10 with the MG2220 over the MG3220 might make sense. But that’s a stretch.
The Pixma MG2220′s lack of Wi-Fi support and convenience features are not our only concerns about the value proposition of this printer. While Canon continues reusing the same print engine in this current family of Pixma MG models, other manufacturers, such as Kodak (with its $99-list ESP 3.2 All-in-One PrinterBest Deal: $69.00 at Walmart.com), have meanwhile souped up their previous models, making them faster and more efficient. In addition, the Pixma MG2220 uses the same print cartridges as the other two Canon MG models discussed here, and they’re pricey on a cost-per-page (CPP) basis. That makes using this printer one of the dearest in the budget-printer field. If you’ll print on it much at all, the initial savings will get eaten up quickly (and soon, forgotten) by what you pay for the ink to keep it going.
Still, $69 isn’t much to pay for a machine that prints, copies, and scans, and if you just want to print the occasional photograph or business document, the MG2220 will give you respectable-looking output, albeit slower than most competitors. It also scans and copies well—but then, too, so do most competing models. Were sluggishness the MG2220′s only shortcoming, we could overlook that for the price. But the high ink cost is a huge drawback, and it makes this AIO hard to recommend for anything more than occasional use.

In a world where inexpensive color printers—laser and inkjet alike—abound, it’s hard to get excited about black-and-white multifunction laser printers, unless they hit a striking new price low. Many small offices and workgroups may not even see the point in owning a machine that can’t print or copy color documents.
We do, though. Many businesses—mortgage brokers, tax preparers, and auto dealers, to name just a few—need to print copious amounts of monochrome pages quickly and inexpensively. The speed and low printing cost of a monochrome laser can soften the blow of maintaining a second machine for occasional color output. Plus, if the printer can also copy, scan, and fax when needed, that’s an added office-convenience bonus.
It’s in these high-volume, on-demand printing environments that devices like Brother’s $599-list MFC-8950DW readily find a home. And, in that sense (well, in every sense, actually) this huge, fast multifunction printer is certainly a high-volume machine. It comes with a spacious 500-sheet input tray, and it provides users with toner-cartridge options with yields up to 12,000 pages per cartridge. Plus, Brother rates this machine’s duty cycle at up to 100,000 pages monthly (that’s Brother’s recommendation for how many prints you should be able to push through it each month without undue wear), and it spits out pages at blazingly fast speeds. In addition, you can purchase a second 500-sheet paper tray that, combined with the 50-sheet override tray, allows you to stock the MFC-8950DW with over 1,000 sheets of paper.
Clearly, this is a machine for businesses that generate stacks of black-and-white documents all day; it’s absolutely overkill for a light-printing home office or for the kids’ term papers. We should pause here and point out that Brother also offers a pared-down version of the MFC-8950DW, the MFC-8910DW. (We’ll be reviewing it shortly.) Essentially, the MFC-8910DW is the same machine, minus a few features, such as a USB slot for printing and scanning directly from the printer itself, and support for the highest-yield (12,000-page) toner cartridges—which means you can’t get the lowest cost-per-page option available on the more expensive MFC-8950DW. If you don’t need these functions, the MFC-8910DW might be a better buy.
Like most Brother printers, this one is well-built, operates efficiently, prints good-looking documents, and is easy to set up and use. We do have a couple of concerns, though. First, some high-end color-laser models, such as Samsung’s CLP-775ND (which we saw online when we wrote this for as low as $678, and Dell’s single-function C3760dn, spotted for around $570Best, don’t cost a lot more than the MFC-8950DW. These color machines, as well as a few others, are, we think, better deals, because they give you the option to print color documents when you need them.
Our second quibble is the MFC-8950DW’s cost per page (CPP). If you buy Brother’s highest-yield cartridge, the CPP is not exorbitantly high, but it’s higher than some other competing printers, including the two mentioned in the previous paragraph. We’ll talk more about this model’s CPP in the Design & Features section on the next page.
Still, the MFC-8950DW is a good printer overall. In our speed tests, it performed on par with its competitors, all the while providing us with great-looking prints and copies. For the most part, the scanner worked well, too. We’d be more excited about it, though, were it a little less pricey and a bit less expensive to use.
See the review at Computer Shopper.
Sometimes, attempting to save money can wind up costing you more in the end. This is especially true of entry-level inkjet all-in-one (AIO) printers for printing, copying, and scanning documents and photographs. Buying the wrong machine can cost you plenty, in terms of wasted time and the cost of consumables (in this case, ink cartridges). An attractive purchase price is not, by far, the only thing to consider when looking for a printer for your home or home-based office.
And that’s our main concern about Canon’s Pixma MG3220. While the MG3220′s suggested list price, $79.99, is low for a printer that can also copy and scan, this Pixma is considerably slower than some other recent similarly priced models, and it costs a lot to use—its ink cost per page (CPP) is just too high. If you use this printer a lot, it will cost you much more over time then some other entry-level competitors.
The MG3220 is the middle model (between the $69.99-list Pixma MG2220 and the $129.99-list Pixma MG4220, in a trio of low-end photo-centric Pixmas Canon rolled out in midsummer 2012. As we pointed out in our review of the MG4220 earlier this month, these are actually tweaked-and-rereleased versions of 2011′s Pixma MG2120, MG3120, and MG4120. As far as we can tell—and as our tests bear out—aside from a few additional features, these 2012 models are essentially the same Pixmas as last year’s.
Of the three, the MG3220 makes the most sense—assuming, that is, that you can do without the 2.4-inch color display, as well as the ability to print from and scan to memory cards, provided on the more-expensive MG4220. On the cheaper MG2220, you also give up wireless connectivity and automatic two-sided printing, which is a lot of sacrifice for the mere $10 price difference. As for the higher-end MG4220, our concern with it is that you can get a faster and more feature-rich Pixma, such as the Pixma MG5320, for about the same price (or cheaper, if you shop around).
As we said about the last-generation MG3120, the MG3220 prints documents and photos well enough, especially for an entry-level model, but it’s slower than some other recently released competitors, such as Kodak’s $99.99 ESP 3.2 All-in-One. It also has a much higher CPP than that Kodak and some other models. (We discuss the CPP in the last section of this review.) With that in mind, after spending a few days with this Pixma, we’re just not that enthusiastic about it. You can save a lot of money over the long haul by choosing a competing model, even one that costs just a little more.

Play it again, Canon. It’s not unusual for a printer manufacturer to slap a few minor enhancements onto an existing machine, rename it, and rerelease it as a new model. We see this often, and most printer makers do it, but seemingly none more frequently than Canon.
This time, the printer giant has revamped not just one, but three of its entry-level, photo-centric Pixma print/copy/scan models: 2011′s Pixma MG4120, MG3120, and MG2120 are reborn as the MG4220, MG3220, and MG2220. (We’re working on reviews of the other two new models; the MG4220 is the first of the set we looked at.)
The problem here with this tweak-it-and-relaunch-it approach? The original models weren’t stellar printers to begin with, so you run the danger of simply getting the same old middling machines, but with a few new features. On paper, that’s what it looks like happened with these three new all-in-one (AIO) models. All three are essentially the same as last year’s Pixmas, and those models printed documents and photos at less-than-industry-standard speeds, with costs per page (CPPs) that were far too high.
Alas, our tests of the MG4220 bear out that little has changed. This new trio of Pixmas is budget-priced (with MSRPs from $69.99 to $129.99), with the MG4220, the focus of this review, the most expensive and functional of the three. As Canon’s MG models go (“MG” is the company’s designation for its photo-centric AIO printers), the MG4220 falls between the $149.99 Pixma MG5320 and the $79.99 Pixma MG3220. (We’ll be posting a review of the MG3220 shortly.)
The $60 difference between the MG3220 and the MG4220 gets you support for several types of memory cards, as well as a small (2.4-inch) full-color LCD that makes scanning to and printing from memory devices and configuring the printer easier. If you step up to the MG5320, though, for the extra $20 you get a 3-inch screen, the ability to print labels on CDs, a significantly faster print engine, support for USB memory and other USB devices, and better-looking prints, especially photographs.
This is not to say that the MG4220′s output is subpar or in any way unacceptable—not at all. It’s just that, to our eyes, at least, the MG5320′s five-ink-cartridge system churned out better-looking prints than the MG4220′s two-cartridge system. (Furthermore, the MG5320 has been on the market for a while now, and we found it at several online outlets for under $100. Conversely, we couldn’t find the MG4220 for less than $119 yet.)
Our take? The MG4220 is a capable printer. It’s easy to set up and use; it prints good-looking documents and photos, and in our tests, it was reliable. Compared to recent competing models (such as HP’s $129 Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-one and Kodak’s $99.99 ESP 3.2 All-in-One), though, it’s slow, even when printing photographs. However, our biggest concern with this model is its high per-page cost of ink, which we discuss in the last section of this review. Other models—including other similarly priced Pixmas—can deliver comparable (and sometimes better) print quality at faster speeds, as well as provide a better overall value over time.

It wasn’t all that long ago that high-volume color laser printers ran well upward of $1,000, with some as much as $2,000 or more. In addition, color prints on these models, in terms of the per-page cost of consumables (here, toner cartridges) often cost more than 20 cents each. It’s no wonder that so many businesses depended on FedEx and other service bureaus when they needed laser-quality color prints.
Relying on service bureaus, though, is costly in other ways. First is the time and fuel wasted with trips to the store. Getting your files there, pre-proofing to make sure colors are right, picking up the print job, and so on, all take more time. Plus, if something changes, such as, say, a sale price or product specification, your only recourse is to throw away leftover prints and print new ones—and that’s costly, too.
If you print and distribute color documents often, having a color laser in-house is much more convenient, and here’s where products such as Dell’s 2012-release C3760dn Color Laser Printer can make your life easier. This high-volume workhorse, $649 at the time of our review, prints faster than nearly every printer in its class that we’ve tested, with superb-looking output, and it costs less on a cost per page (CPP) basis than most competing models. It’s even faster and cheaper to use than our Editors’ Choice winner, the $749.99 Samsung CLP-775ND (a high-volume, multifunction print/copy/scan/fax color laser), which we reviewed back in October 2011.
Alas, no printer is perfect, but the C3760dn comes close. Our primary concerns center on cost. Because this is a single-function model, its $649 price seems a touch high for what it is. In addition, to get Wi-Fi connectivity, you must purchase an adapter (more on this in the Design & Features section on the next page), adding to the overall cost of the machine. Still, this model’s low CPP numbers—especially for monochrome pages, which are what most businesses print most often—are attractive. If you use this printer a lot (compared to most other high-volume models), you’ll make up these costs and start saving money sooner than you might think.
And that’s where the C3760dn makes the most sense—high-volume printing over the long haul. When buying a workhorse printer like this one, what you pay for each print should be a bigger overall consideration than the purchase price. Combine this model’s lightning-fast printing, and its excellent-looking documents, graphics, and photos, with its low CPP, and the C3760dn comes up a great printer and a terrific value.

We’d say it’s raining laser printers, but we don’t want to send you running for cover—they are quite heavy, after all. But, in recent weeks, that’s how it seems here at Computer Shopper. Given all the laser models that have hit the market this summer, as soon as we plough through one group—testing, analyzing, and writing reviews—the next bunch shows up. They’re coming from Dell, HP, and others, in a variety of shapes, sizes, and prices. The summer of 2012 has turned out to be one of the hottest times in memory for laser-printer releases.
Here, we took a look at Dell’s $249 B1265dnf, a multifunction (printing, scanning, copying, and faxing) monochrome laser printer. The B1265dnf is the fourth model up—in terms of features, price, and print-volume rating—in a group of five monochrome lasers that Dell released in late June. Two of the company’s three less-expensive offerings in that line, the $99 B1160 and $119 B1160w, are so-called “personal” laser printers similar to Samsung’s $129.99 ML-2165W, which we reviewed in spring 2012. (We’ll be taking a look at the B1160w in the coming weeks.) The other cheaper model, an entry-level monochrome printer-only model, the B1260dn, we looked at earlier this month.
As multifunction lasers go, at under $250, the B1265dnf is an entry-level machine. In this part of the printer market, “entry-level” is an important distinction. With budget models like this one, you typically pay a low up-front price for the machine itself, but then pay a premium each time you buy the printer’s somewhat overpriced (as we see it, anyway) toner. In addition, these lasers usually have relatively low maximum monthly duty cycles. (“Duty cycle” is the number of pages the manufacturer says you can print each month without excessive wear on the machine.)
Despite Dell’s “high duty cycle” proclamation for this model, the B1265dnf falls a little short of this claim. This model’s somewhat high per-page cost of operation, or cost per page (CPP), and relatively low duty cycle (20,000 pages per month) do not, in our estimation, meet the requirements for a high-volume laser. By comparison, the company’s higher-end 2355dn, with its low (under-2-cent) CPP and 80,000-page duty cycle, is a true high-volume monochrome multifunction laser. The B1265dnf is—at best—a mid-volume one.
Don’t get us wrong. We’re not saying that the B1265dnf is not a good printer—not by any means. It prints quickly and churns out great-looking documents, making it a good fit for small offices, small businesses, and small enterprise workgroups with modest print-volume requirements. However, if you push it anywhere close to the recommended monthly volume rating, you’d be much better off, over time on a CPP basis, with a pricier model with a higher duty cycle. Just be mindful of how much you print and copy. (We analyze the cost-per-page value equation between this model and higher-volume multifunction devices later on in this review.)
