Pump up your home office with a wireless all-in-one printer, $129.99 shipped

JR.com has the Brother MFC-685cw multifunction printer for $129.99 with free shipping. It's a feature-packed all-in-one that supports both wired and Wi-Fi networks.


To paraphrase Arthur Clarke, printing without wires is indistinguishable from magic. I mean, remember when you needed a big fat parallel cable to send documents from PC to printer? Now all you need is air (and a Wi-Fi router).

JR.com has the Brother MFC-685cw, a seriously well-equipped multifunction printer, for $129.99 shipped. Among the highlights: compact design, a built-in phone with answering machine, and both wired and Wi-Fi network compatibility.

You can read CNET's full review here, but I'll summarize in case you're in a hurry: It's packed with features, but it's also a slowpoke that produces so-so output. Of course, this all-in-one was designed with home offices in mind, where speed and pro-quality prints aren't priorities. If you want printing, faxing, scanning, copying, calling, and more, all without wires, here's your chance to get it on the cheap.
