Hi All

I'm planning to buy an All in One (Printer/Scanner/Copier/Fax) in a couple of days. Please suggest something with the following requirements:

Budget:
8-9k Max

Mandatory:
1. Printer/Scanner/Copier/Fax
2. Flatbed (glass top) scanner
3. Automatic Document Feeder for Copying/Scanning
4. Network connectivity (wired is ok, wireless will be awesome)
5. Best reliability w.r.t ink/head drying in a low usage environment (I'll generally use it 3-4 times in a month)
6. Linux compatibilty
7. Good ink performance with cheap cartridges. Don't need to refill as I'll buy original ones but it should not be like that I have to buy new carts every 4-5 months even with my low usage.
8. Good after-sales service.

Good to have:
1. Photo Printing
2. LCD with photo preview
3. PC less Printing through USB stick
4. PC less Scanning to USB stick/email
5. SD Card support
6. Low area footprint

From what I have read so far Epson doesn't have good build quality. Canon and HP are good but canon uses bubblejet which dries off ink more quickly as compared to HP's thermaljet but some say that HP requires ink to be there eevn for scanning. How is Brother and Lexmark?
Thanks in advance

Hunt for HP's Officejet J6480. It fits all ur requirements.

And it is Canon that doesnot allow scanning with empty cartridges.

^^ Thanks for the suggestion, njankit. Featurewise it looks completely apt to what I need but it seems that it quite expensive..more than 15-16k which is quite out of my budget...
