You'll need one with an ADF in order to scan 8x14 paper. Epsons only have ADF in their higher cost printers for office use. Best bet would be a Brother printer like a DCP-T700W. Printers from other brands that have ADF are way more expensive than this.

Hindi kaya 7K for an ink tank printer with ADF. Closest to that budget will be an HP Ink Advantage 4675. It's not refillable but the ink cartridges are comparatively cheap costing only about P500 each now.

she apparently has a list of requirements in mind, posted above. now, she's not a techie by any means, so she's not aware that some compromise has to be made if she goes with a low budget. also, she believes what she is looking for is sold at a discount in Lazada.

In fairness Lazada is having a sale right now. And lately, Lazada is the first site I go to when looking for something to buy. So she maybe right.

i tried searching for printers at Lazada myself and i found it to be a pain. so i asked her to send me links of what she found to be good in her eyes.

which one of those is the most suitable for her needs? i hope one of them is. that Brother printer appears to be fit for what she's looking for, but i have no experience with that brand of printer. thanks!

Canon mx492 can scan up to 8.5x14 (legal size, am i right?) via the document feeder according to this:

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/printers/inkjet-multifunction/mx-series-inkjet/mx492

The brother printer OTOH has conflicting info. In Lazada, it says scanning is only up to A4 via document feeder whereas the brother site says max is 8.5x14:

http://m.brother-usa.com/MultiFunction/ModelDetail/4/MFCJ480DW/spec

And there's 1 review saying that legal size didn't fit the paper tray kaya "binutasan" nya pa daw.

For business use ba yung printer? Kung may continuous ink system kasi (like the brother above) prone to clogs kapag natetengga nang matagal.

The seller of the Brother with continuous ink also has that same Canon model but with a bundled refill kit (some ink and syringes).

Still less than 5k.

Refilling ink cartridges is a messy affair. Baka magsawa when she experiences how messy it is. Check the prices of the ink cartridges before buying a printer. Canon ink cartridges are pretty expensive.

Brother with CISS is actually "sulit" if you will be printing frequently and on a daily basis. Easy to refill too.
