HP Color Laserjet Pro MFP M281fdw in More Detail

HP have really broken the mould with the M281fdw. Such diverse functionality, such high performance, and such an affordable price tag. Expect print speeds of up to 21 ppm in colour and monochrome, with the first page in the output tray in as fast as 12.6 seconds. This is a workgroup multifunction printer you'll want to get your hands on.

Glorious colour, precise monochrome

The HP M281fdw has a print resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi, and scanning resolution of up to 1200 dpi. This means your copies and faxes, as well as your prints, will have a consistent high-quality that you can bank on. One feature that stands out here is the automatic double-sided printing - you can get twice the use out of a single sheet of paper with no extra effort.

Maximum output, multiplied!

Using genuine HP consumables, you can really get a great yield from this machine. Legitimate consumables always produce the best results, and they minimise the risk of wear-and-tear damage to the hardware. Pay close attention to that 40,000 pages per month duty cycle, and the recommended 2,500 pages per month print volume - if your workspace is likely to be hitting numbers like that, you'll want to make sure your machine is operating at its peak!

Using your multifunction printer

The 6.85cm colour touchscreen enables users to easily enter commands for copying and changing settings. External devices can interface with the M281fdw via USB, Ethernet cable or a wireless network.

Alternatively, you could use the Airprint compatibility to interface with mobile devices. The software comes packaged with the machine, and it is compatible with Mac and PC.

A super-solution for the office

At such an affordable price, one wouldn't expect to get such versatility and quality. The input tray can carry up to 250 pages, so you can just load her up and get to work.

Great service, great printer

The printer was very easy to set up and the print quality is excellent. Haven't used the scanner yet, but think it will be fine. This is for home office use - looks like it will do a great job. Service at Printerland also excellent - rang a couple of times for advice and they were very helpful. Order was processed quickly and with the exception of Parcelforce and their various antics, it would have arrived the next day. Highly recommend.


Brilliant Service

We are a young business which is expanding at a fair old pace, as is our requirement for IT equipment. This is the third printer we have ordered from Printerland in as many months, they have great offers, we picked up £60 cash back, 3 years free warranty and next day delivery which they have always achieved. Would I use them again definitely. They consistently deliver excellent customer service, price and delivery and I don't think we could find anyone who came close. Well done


Great Customer Service - Alex

I ordered the product on line, but had a few queries; i spoke to Alex and also had some email exchanges for me and helped me get everything sorted, especially the delivery and invoiced address etc., which I had messed up when placing the order on line; he also provided me with links to sort out the 3 year warranty and to claim the free gift offered with the product - very patient and helpful, super service Alex, thanks


First-class company

I was really impressed by the excellent customer service. My order and delivery were dealt with promptly and effectively. The staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The price was good, and I would recommend this company without hesitation. Excellent website, too. As an previous reviewer said, it's a bit soon to start reviewing the product itself, since it's still in its box! But the service by Printerland has been faultless.


Order Review

Excellent customer service, someone answered straight away and they were able to help me. Ordered on a Sunday and had this delivered by Tuesday. Excellent price, cheaper than other websites but good quality.

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.

Please note. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk.

Voice Activated Printing with Amazon Alexa

Once you’ve enabled the HP Printer Skill from your Amazon Alexa app printing becomes just as easy as talking. You can print various pre-formatted documents such as shopping lists, calendars, puzzles or even colouring pages - and all you need to do is ask!


How to Print

Firstly, you’d need to obtain your HP printers email address to link it to Alexa. This can be located via your printers control panel, or by printing off a Web Services information sheet.

Now you can enable the HP Print Skill from your smartphone or tablet using the Alexa App, or you can enable this skill via the Amazon website if you’re using a computer.

Then all you need to do is enter the email address for you printer, tap finish and start printing.

You can now ask your Echo or other Alexa device to print straight to your HP printer:


“Alexa, ask my Printer to…” and then follow with the content you wish to print. It’s as simple as that.
