A multifunction device with LAN is fully in the trend as it can be controlled by notebook, netbook or tablet. The picture gallery shows the best combi printers with WiFi from the tests.
Especially in the case of ink-jet multifunctional devices, the control by radio is almost as common as the USB port as a connection to the local computer. Wi-Fi is no longer a luxury, as the number of multi-function devices with WiFi is below the magic price limit of 100 Euro (manufacturer’s recommended retail price). In addition to decent quality in printing, copying and scanning, they also offer good equipment. For example, integrated duplex units are not a rarity that allow for automatic two-sided printing. Even preview displays, which can be used to print documents from cloud stores such as dropbox or social media services like Facebook, can be found in the entry-level segment.
You should still pay attention to page prices: the entrance segment is only seemingly cheap here. You can spend a little more than 100 euros for the device and get a multifunction device with reasonable costs. Here LAN (or local area network) is always on board, often also as a variant WiFi Direct, in which you connect your mobile device directly without a router via the combineret. Especially some Canon models use the Kombigerät as an access point.Then a point-to-point connection can be established with the mobile device. However in this case deactivates the classic wireless network by router.

Many a multifunction device can also connect via NFC (Near Field Communication) to the smartphone or tablet PC. What makes the manufacturers as super simplistic, has proven so far in the PC-WELT tests as still unripe. In most cases, the contact only works in a certain way, or not at all. If it is established, the data exchange again takes place via WLAN.

Mobile Printing Standards And Manufacturing Services
More and more multifunction devices support various possibilities of mobile printing, of which Apple Airprint and Google Cloudprint are probably the most common. However, a look at the technical data remains necessary, since not always are both standards that are mastered. The manufacturers offer their own cloud printing services such as HP ePrint,Epson Connect and Canon CloudLink. Every printer manufacturer also has apps in the program, which allow the models to be controlled from their own home.
Guide: Print from the mobile device-how it works
In addition, the multifunctional devices all have a USB port for the local connection to the computer. Some models also offer Ethernet to connect them to the LAN. Discover in the gallery the best multifunction devices with WLAN connection from the tests.
Currently tested: HP Officejet 5740: The multifunction device is suitable for home or small home office. However, even the moderate working speed is against a very high demand for printing, scanning and copying. Anyone who decides to use this combinatorial model will be able to consider Ink Inkjet Instant Ink when it actually retrieves regular print volumes. It comes then because of the Kombikartuschen more favorable than with the cartridges from the shop next door.
