HP Officejet Pro 251dw in More Detail

The HP Officejet Pro 251dw A4 colour inkjet printer is an ideal choice for small to medium businesses for a professional quality printer that delivers low cost per page with mobile and wireless connectivity.

Using the 10.92cm Colour touchscreen interface you can access print tools and business apps to help with your processes.

USB port on the mcahine enables you to print directly from the printer.

    HP Officejet pro 251DWPrinter

    Don't look at the Office jet pro 251 DW if you want reliable printing. Paper feed is rubbish especially on A5 pulling multiple sheets through and making it impossible to print sequentially. Not that brilliant on A4 either Blurb says it prints double sided, no way will it print double sided on A5 its not included in the package. To get it to work properly on A5 you have to feed sheets of paper in one at a time and to do this the paper trays make it an impossibility My old K4500 worn as it is still knocks spots of this one Cant blame printerland though as their service was excellent.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.
