Re: Inexpensive printer that scans decently

Mostly on OSX around here. Any sleepers in this category I should know of?

I've found the Canon MX870 to be pretty good (as well as the replacement MX895) as it handles duplex page scanning as well as flatbed scanning without too much of a problem. Software is actually decent on Mac OS X, you can scan to a computer from the multifunction printer itself so it will launch on your Mac and save the file automatically for you (or you can scan directly from the Mac, depends on your setup).

Only downside would be slow colour ADF scanning vs grayscale (ideally, you'd get a proper ADF scanner that can do both sides at a time). You can also get chip resetters for the CLI-521/CLI-526 cartridges + refill ink if you want.
