Dell printer is inexpensive. It serves the purpose of all three functions: scanning, printing, and copying in a very compact device with a very easy to use buttons. One of the coolest features is that it can be wirelessly connected with your home network.
Dell scanner printer is mostly used to archive documents to PDF files. Network scanning uses push methodology and you connect to the computer you want to scan to using the front panel controls after setting up a client on a Windows PC. A4 digit PIN number is used to secure access to the PC for scanning. But since you need to be at the unit to feed the scanner it makes sense than pulling from a computer on the other side of the room or building. The scanning to a USB connected Windows computer can be push or pull. When pushing to a computer you could select an application or folder to scan to if the Windows software is installed. If you scan to Word the OCR software that comes with the unit would run to convert the page to text before opening the document in Word.
