Conclusion: If you want the speed and text quality a laser printer provides, but require more versatility—for scanning, faxing, and copying—the HP LaserJet 3030 with its flatbed scanner and automatic document feeder is a good choice where printing demands are light to moderate.
Pros: Good to excellent text output; excellent scanning, faxing, and copying capabilities; 50-sheet automatic document feeder for scanning and faxing multipage documents.
Cons: Graphics output shows obvious dithering; photo output is seriously flawed with extremely obvious posterization; paper handling is relatively limited.
Conclusion: HP's printer driver provides a good variety of booklet, N-up, and watermark output options. The company's browser-based "toolbox" software has an even more impressive array of simple, tabbed menus for setting defaults and adding options which you can then cycle through with the LaserJet's LCD menu...
Pros: Solid monochrome printing, copying, and faxing matches functionality of separate devices, Great text quality; handy controls and automatic document feeder
Cons: Slightly cramped paper-loading and -retrieving; mediocre graphics output, We wish it cost $100 instead of $200 more than its sheetfed sibling
