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
