Actually, let me modify that. How did I live without the scanner?
Why is anyone still using fax machines? This “Canon PIXMA MX512 Wireless Color Photo Printer with Scanner, Copier and Fax” came with fax capabilities, but I’d much rather scan and send something as an email attachment. My guess is most of the people still sending faxes never think to do it any other way.
I’ve only printed two pages on its color printer. Test prints. My laser printer is cheaper to operate and faster. I’ll continue to print boarding passes in black and white.
OK–back to the scanner. It’s got sheet feeder and flat bed capability. It is fast enough… faster than I expected.
I didn’t expect to use it as often as I have. Insurance forms, real estate disclosures, even photos have been scanned and sent on their way. Today, when Helaine discovered some paperwork we’d need during our drive west, I scanned it, then emailed it to myself. It will be there when I need it without the necessity of carrying more paper.
For $88.00 I got a deal. What I’m trying to remember is, what I did for scanning before this entered my life?
