choosing a photocopier/scanner that has a form-feeder for multiple pages


Hi
My 'work'-place is looking for a decently large photocopier that can also be used as a scanner. Roughly the size shown in the pic in the link
http://www.approvedindex.co.uk/photo...rphotocopiers/
ie, not a desktop one.

Any ideas of where to look? There used to be lists of hardware that had been tested under Gnu&Linux or more specifically Ubuntu in my 'work's case.
Regards from
Tom

Something like this? http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport...odTypeId=18972
According to the description it should work just fine with hplip.

Hi
Yes, that sort of thing looks good. Hp seem to be a good company for Gnu&Linux users. That model seems to cost $4k and a quick google-search didn't find me one in England but i can do a better search later.
Thanks and regards from
Tom

Hi

I couldn't find at first search but the system (yes, I call it, because it's almost an unmanaged device doing all by itself) which I know that works in linux (CentOS)
is Develop Ineo+ 452 -> here
The prices are ^^ almost skyrocket high I think but it's a very good system.

I wish you good luck in choosing

Hi
Thanks chaps Roken's 2nd link was very useful with the "Similar items" at the bottom. Seems like it's going to be about 4k, lol = ie just change the currency symbol and ignore exchange-rates.

Tom

Found one

Found a decent match here http://www.top4office.co.uk/photocopiers/sharp-mx-2310u . The thing about photocopiers is that they are terribly expensive if purchased new. So paying slightly less than 2k is not such a bad deal. Anything below would rank either as pre owned, refurbished or simply ineffective. Networking on a cheap MFP seems like a bad joke. This should not happen to a techie ...

Hi
Thanks all! Good to know. Of course the parameters of the problem have been changed for me so now i'm looking for a small machine to sit on a desktop. I have a feeling they are going to come back around to this idea later so i have bookmarked this thread. So i have attached a small diagram that seems fairly apt.
Many thanks and regards from
Tom
