HP Color Laser MFP 178nw in More Detail

A compact, multifunctional machine suitable for any office, the HP Color Laser MFP 178nw A4 Colour Multifunction Laser Printer is one of the most affordable HP pieces on the market. With three functions (printing, scanning and copying), it is a practical unit that can help you work on your project effortlessly. Thanks to its compact size, it doesn’t take up a lot of space, so you can fit it anywhere you would like.

Well-connected

It features both Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct and an Ethernet port, depending on what you prefer. It is also perfect for small workgroups since you can control it through AirPrint and Google Cloud Print via your smartphone. You might want to consider downloading the HP Smart Print app which makes it easier to print and scan documents via the cloud. There is also a USB port on the back, for printing from a flash drive.

Great text and image quality

Printing both black and white and colour documents and images, this printer features exquisite technology that gives precise results in rich resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi. The same resolution is valid for scanning, as well. It also has a printing speed of up to 19ppm for mono pages and up to 4ppm for colour. Its printed text is sharp and crisp with well-defined edges, while the colours delivered by this printer are vivid and bold, so you can even print photographs.

High functionality

Perfect for small offices, this model is the smallest colour laser printer of its class. With foldable flaps, extendable paper tray and smooth scanning levers, it is a smart gadget that is incredibly easy to handle. It has a 150 sheet input and 50 sheet output capacity plus a two-line LCD display with cursor for straightforward control. Printing on only one side of the paper, it features a manual duplex mode enabling you to print on both sides of the paper.

Customer Question & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help!
Q If any of the colour toners run out on this printer can you still print in Black and White?
A Hi Ashley, The HP Color Laser MFP 178nw requires at least some levels of CMY toners in order to print in mono. Kind Regards
Q Can this 178nw printer scan multiple pages at same at the same one file ?
A The HP Color Laser MFP 178nw features a flatbed scanner so to scan multi-page documents you would need to manually scan each page individually, but you can add each scanned page to the same file.
Q How do I scan a legal size document on the scanner?
A The HP Color Laser MFP 178nw is only able to scan documents up to 216 x 297mm in size via the flatbed scanner. As a legal sized document is too wide, you can use the HP Smart app to scan the document with your mobile device camera or computer webcam. All information on how to scan with the HP smart app is available through the app or via the manufacturers website.
Q How to scan document and save to PC?
A You can use the 'Destination' section in HP Scan to find or change where your scanned files are saved; if you are scanning directly from the printer control panel, use HP Scan to check the default folder your scans are saved to. To change the default folder, click 'Browse' and navigate to the folder you want to save your scans to, click 'OK' and then 'Save'.
