Speaking of scanners, I have been looking at what's available these days. Mostly it is "all-in-ones", machines that combine the functions of fax, scanner and printer. I wonder if they are really good at all three jobs?
Back in the 60's, I had a roommate who owned a huge console TV, stereo and radio. It was as large as a sideboard. When the TV went bad, and the whole unit had to be taken to the repair shop, we had to do without any media for about 30 days - which - when you are 20-something, is a fate worse than death! The only radio we had was in her car. Ever since then, I have been leery of machines or media which are combined into multiple-function units.
As of now, I have both a fax and a printer, both of which are working well. Should I trash them for an all-in-one? What do you think? Would you considering buying one if you were in my shoes?
