In Living Color
Printing in black and white doesn't always express the vibrancy of your company. Kyocera Mita's FS-C5016N laser printer delivers 17 full-color, letter-size pages per minute, delivers 600 x 600 dpi resolution and holds up to 2,100 sheets of stock. It's also network-friendly, with 10/100Mbps Ethernet connectivity as well as USB 2.0 and bidirectional parallel port options. For another $419, you can make a wireless connection. Even better, its ECOSYS toner technology eliminates cartridge waste.

Five in One
With so many DVD read and write formats out there, how can you be sure that a disc is compatible with your DVD drive? Get LG Electronics' GSA-4040B, a DVD recorder that supports all five DVD formats. Its 2MB buffer makes it fast, recording at speeds of 3X for DVD-RAM discs, 4X for DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs, 12X for CD-RWs, and 24X for CD-R discs. And whatever your DVD application-backing up data, recording training videos or creating a product catalog-the portable GSA-4040B makes recording a snap.
