The HP Color LaserJet Pro Multifunction M479fdw is a good option for small and medium-sized workgroups or offices because it produces high-quality prints while taking up minimal office space. 

This multifunction printer allows you to print, scan, copy, and fax, but it is a bit slower than some of other machines of a similar size. The costs to run the printer and supply replacement costs also tend to run high for this model.
