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 less than 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 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.

    It's really a bit early to start reviewing the product itself, since tr's still in its box! But the service by Printerland has been faultless.

  • Fabian Haxhia 25 July 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Feedback

    Very happy

  • Elias 18 July 2018 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 A4 Colour Laser

    I was sceptical about the merits of a Multi-function colour laser at this price but I needn't have worried as it has turned out to be an excellent buy. The printer produces colour prints that are sharp with bright vibrant colours on plain A4 paper. I have had it for 6 months in a SOHO environment and it does everything well, including the scan to computer function. Its not too big either and has all the connections that I need. I am using it wirelessly without any issues. Its a great colour laser printer at a great price, especially if you can qualify for the cashback offer.

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.

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.

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