The printer copier scanner fax machine is for a home or small office. Its unique selling point is the amalgamation of all utilities; it prints, scans, faxes, photocopies and it is economical on space so it saves you having multiple units within a confined space. Essentially they perform all the tasks adequately. They do not produce the highest quality images so if your business relies, for example, on the ultra sharp images when printing or copying then your focus should be elsewhere in the market. If there are elements of the printer scanner or fax machine you do not use regularly the printer copier scanner fax machine will suit your needs. They are primarily a space saver but they are still one big unit, (rather than numerous units), so incorporating the printer copier scanner fax machine will require a fair allocation of space in one location.
