    Helps! Can you recommend a wireless/networked printer multifunction device thingy?

    As above, for space reasons I would lime to get an mfd that performs all of it's functions either directly wirelessly or via my network. Can anyone recommend a device? I have up to £150 to spend.

    What about a Wireless HP multifunction. Can't comment on that particular device, but I've got a networked HP 2570 that's never given me any trouble at all (except when trying to persuade it to work with Windows 7...) so I can't see you going far wrong with it...

    Bit over budget but this...

    http://www.printerbase.co.uk/acatalo...r-mfc990cw.php - wireless

    Or choose from some of these

    http://www.printerbase.co.uk/acatalo...s-with-fax.php

    (I have bought from this dealer before - no problems with them - worth shopping around if you choose one of these, but the prices seem OK.)
