HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fnw in More Detail

The HP Colour LaserJet Pro MFP M479fnw is a smart, uncomplicated printer to streamline workflow in any office. Print fast with 27ppm in both mono and colour, while a 9.7-second first-page print speed means there’s less time waiting around. Stay connected with Wi-Fi and effortlessly sync your devices and print from virtually anywhere.

Versatility for all purposes

A printer with multi-functionality is sure to modernise any office environment. Fast printing and copying are facilitated by a manual double-sided feature to reduce paper usage to save both money and waste at the same time. With 250 sheets that can fit in the paper tray as well, there will be less hassle when it comes to refilling.

Scan to cloud (Google Drive or DropBox), to USB, to email, or network folder. This choice is less restrictive and excellent when there are different users with different needs. You can even fax direct to email or computer to save on paper, too. With a 400-page fax memory and 300 x 300 dpi, it’s an excellent choice for any hardworking professional.

Easy to use

The Print/Scan/Copy/Fax functionalities have handy presets for ease of use, so it doesn’t take much to learn how to use it. Setup is fast, and you can easily manage the settings to your choice to increase printing efficiency. Print with precision with the simple 4.3” (10.9cm) colour touchscreen with visible, easy-to-read directions.

In line with new technology

Print wirelessly from any iOS device with Apple AirPrint, or use Google Cloud Print for Android, making printing much more accessible and easier for everyone. The MFP M479fnw is also compatible with both Windows and Mac.

Safe & secure

The MFP M479fnw security features include inputting a PIN when releasing documents. To stop potential attacks and take immediate action, you'll also receive instant notification of security issues.

Customer Question & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help!
Q I have a HP Colour laser jet Pro mfp M479fnw printer. It is saying the toner is low. Which toner/cartridges do I need to buy for this printer as it is not listed on the options? Thanks
A Please see the following page for the HP M479FDW Multifunction Printer Toner Cartridges. Kind Regards.
Q I would just like to confirm that this printer can definitely print on card stock.
A The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fnw can handle a maximum weight of 200gsm through the multipurpose tray however, this is for postcards and HP glossy media only. For standard media types, the maximum media weight it can handle is 176gsm. For an alternative option, have a look at the Xerox WorkCentre 6515DNI which can handle up to 220gsm card stock.
Q Does this have borderless printing
A Unfortunately the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fnw is not capable of borderless printing, it has the following print margins: Top: 4.23 mm, Bottom: 4.23 mm, Left: 4.23 mm, Right: 4.23 mm.

Replaces our Rental Printer/Copieer
This replaces our rental printer copier at substantially reduced cost. To print both sides of the paper, it has to be turned over manually, but that's no great hardship. Cannot do A3, but we rarely need that. Am about to buy another for home office.
Printerland Response: Thank-you for your feedback. For reference, automatic double sided printing is available on the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw version of this series.
