Individuals who make use of printer supplies in their home office may like to consider the KX-MB2030 model from Panasonic.

The device is a monochrome laser multifunction printer (MFP) that is capable of being used as a copier and a fax machine, in addition to containing a high-resolution scanner.

It is compact enough to fit into a small space, while still including all the features a person may need to run a business from their home.

The machine comes with a 20-sheet automatic document feeder to boost productivity and it is capable of holding up to 250 sheets in its standard tray.

Review M David Stone of PC Mag suggested that these features would make it a "good fit" for a small workstation, noting it is convenient and easy to use, while its quality is good enough for most business purposes.

He added the Panasonic machine "offers all the MFP features you'll likely need in a compact size and at a reasonable price".

Mr Stone also recently examined the KX-MB2010 model from the same manufacturer, which he suggested would be a good option for light-duty use in a home office environment.
