For 10 years now I have run two printers in my office. One for letter size documents and one for larger format 11 x 17 drawings. This has worked well over the years because, by chance, both of these printers take the exact same ink cartridges. Looking at the age of these printers (the small one is closer to 18 years old I would guess) I'm thinking of replacing both with one new one but I'm having problems finding just what I need. Here is my criteria.
Must do color. Many of the documents I work with have color and need to be printed that way.
Must have two paper trays of which one must be able to hold 11 x 17 paper. This is a biggie because I do A LOT of 11 x 17 printing and I don't have the time to be manually feeding the paper.
Must be able to scan so an all-in-one is obviously what I'm looking for.
Of all this, the separate tray for 11 x 17 is the big one. You wouldn't believe how many prints I run. I've been known to run several hundred a day. Right now I am looking at a Brother MFC-J5920DW and it looks like it meets my criteria. What concerns me is, I was just at OfficeMax (they are supposed to carry this model) today but the sales guy never showed me this one so I wonder if it really will do what I think it will.
