Trademark HP quality every time

The familiar LaserJet technology HP is known for reliable, high-quality printing every time. A competitive print resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi combines perfectly with the 1200 dpi scanner and the copy/fax functions. That HP sheen will always be present, so you know you'll be getting sharp outlining and seamless colour calibration as well as the high print speeds and supreme versatility.

Interface with ease

The MFP M281fdn comes fitted with a 6.85cm colour graphic touchscreen for simple operation, and can connect via USB and Ethernet cable. There is also Airprint compatibility, so mobile devices can get in on the action too. You won't need to waste much time training yourself or others to use this machine.

Best practice for best results

Always opt for genuine HP consumables if you want to get the best out of your hardware, and minimise the risk of damaging it. The MFP M281fdn is a hard worker, with a monthly duty cycle of 40,000 pages, and a recommended 2,500 pages per month listed for max print volume. That means you may be putting this machine through its paces month-to-month, and you'll want to keep it in top condition.

Ever the hard worker

With a 250-page capacity for the input tray, you can simply load up this machine and put it to work. Scanning, copying, printing and faxing are all swift and painless with the MFP M281fdn, and the price tag won't bust your budget.
