Question
QUESTION: Dear Sir,
I have shortlisted three monochrome Multi function printers for Print Copy Scan 1) EPSON M 200 2) HP 1050 3) BROTHER DCP 7065. All are almost same price. Kindly advise me to choose the best one. Criteria law running cost, maintenance free and good speed.Only brother model has ADF which looks  like an added advantage. In india Hp after sales is excellent.no idea about Epson and Brother.
Thanking you.
Deven

ANSWER: I cannot advise you as you would like.  I can advise you as a tech.  Here is my analysis.  
First... toner based machines are a better investment than ink based machine... toner lasts atleast twice as long as ink...
Second... parts... for inkjet hp covers and are about all you can find... even new machine
third... brother machine have a great warranty whether ink jet or toner based and all parts are available.
fourth... I checked epson parts are available but not plentiful... in fact they are retiring some.

My advice... if its inkjet stick to brothers.... if its toner based or laserjet... stick to hp...

QUESTION: Thanks a lot for quick answer. Now I have decided on hp laser monochrome.please help me choose model better than 1050 may be of slightly higher price but better perfomance.in short hp's best selling model in this category.

Answer
As a tech I can help you no further...  you would have to consult a tech local to your area and ask him which HP is the most reliable... ask techs at a couple of shops...  don't ask a salesman... his motivation is profit... and not reliability.  That is all I can do for you...
