I need to buy device to scan and print which:
- can scan with sane
- can print from my debian box (strongly prefer without binary/closed
drivers, I'm not sure about hplip)
- no bigger than ~ (H x D x W) 308 mm x 363 mm x 437 mm 
- can be shared to Windows machines (with HP 1120MFP I could not do that)
 - like Brother, but I heard that they give source code for driver too?
 - hplip has a lot of bloat in his dependecies
 - sizes of my current hp 1120 MFP device
I have had good luck with Epson products over the decades. I've been
using an Epson XP-820 for a few years now and it works quite well as a
printer/scanner/fax except that I can't print directly to a CD/DVD
(previous Epson printers allowed me to do this without problem so I'm
not sure why the XP-820 doesn't). However I can copy the image to a USB
stick and print directly on the printer so it's not a fatal flaw.
