HP LaserJet Pro M477FDW printer
This is a colour laser multifunction printer, recommended for offices printing up to around 4,000 pages per month. We consider this machine to be the replacement of the HP M476dw that came out a few years ago. Comparing it to its predecessor, it’s 35% faster at getting the page out, 33% faster at single sided printing, and up to 150% faster at duplex printing.
So you can see some serious R&D has gone in to this printer and so far, its impressive. The automatic document feeder at the top of the machine can hold up to 50 sheets of standard office paper, and it can scan both sides of the page in a single pass, thanks to the new one piece scan bed design. What does this mean? Well, it means you can scan 100 sides of paper at speeds of up to 47 sides per minute; so large documents can be digitised in no time at all.
The interface is a much welcome change too. The 10.9 cm touch screen display is clear and responsive, and makes navigating through the printer’s menus a breeze. In these menus you can perform certain tasks at the machine like scanning, copying and direct printing, which I’m sure many owners will be doing, as you can now print Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents at the machine via USB flash storage. This means there’s no need to send them from a computer if you don’t have one, or convert them to PDFs before you send them to print.
Moving on to paper handling, the output tray is rated for up to 150 sheets, and this means if you’re printing large documents, you’re less likely to empty the output tray before the job is finished. In terms of input capacity, this machine can handle up to 50 sheets in the multipurpose feeder at the front of the machine, and a further 250 sheets in tray two. There’s also an additional tray available, that can hold up to 550 sheets.
If you are going to be getting the most out of this machine and printing up to around 4,000 pages a month, then we do recommend getting the additional tray. It’ll lead to less down time and offer more versatile paper handling. The consumables for this printer are fantastic, the toner particles are spherical, which offers a better and more consistent print quality.
The cartridges for this machine come in two yields, the standard yield cartridge offering up to 2,300 pages, and the higher yield giving up to 5,000 pages for colour, and 6,500 pages for black. You can connect to this machine via USB & Network cables at the back, Wi-Fi and of course The USB port at the front of the device. It’s a hard wearing, reliable and easy to use machine, and sure to impress in any business environment, and perfect for a medium sized office needing high quality colour output.
