Individuals seeking a multifunction printer (MFP) for use in a home or small office environment may like to consider the KX-MB2010 model from printer cartridge manufacturer Panasonic.

The compact design could make it a good option for those who have limited space available, while it includes copying and scanning capabilities alongside its monochrome laser printer.

Owners looking to produce complex documents may also be able to take advantage of Panasonic's Easy Print utility, which can simplify these operations and give users greater control over the final output.

The quality of the printouts the KX-MB2010 produces were recently examined by PC Mag's M David Stone, who noted its text is suitable for most business requirements, while the graphics are more than adequate for internal use.

He also said that light-duty users could find the low running costs of the MFP a good feature, noting that it makes the model a "potential bargain" for individuals looking to produce small volumes of documents.

Previously, the writer had suggested another printer that could be a good option for users on a budget is the Canon Pixma iX6520, which he said offers high quality documents and a decent speed.
