I had an HP Deskjet 1510 All in One printer with which I could print, scan and take xerox. That was pretty handy for me as i had to take lots of prints and had to scan documents for my project. Also my father loved to sit and scan all the old photos. In our office though we use document imaging service for scanning a document as there are loads of papers that need to be scanned. or household purposes the deskjet will be a good choice.
