Product Overview

HP LaserJet Pro M12a in More Detail

Ideal for small offices or home use, the HP LaserJet Pro M12a Printer is engineered to provide quality output at a fraction of the normal cost. As part of the HP series, you get all the reliability and effectiveness you’d expect from the printing industry’s market leader. What’s more, for a printer of its size, it’s surprisingly industrious – able to produce an entire 18 pages per minute. Due to its compact size, if space is at a premium at either home or work, it could be the ideal solution for the job.

Consistent and connected

Equipped with the trusted original HP toner cartridges, the M12a is consistent and dependable, whilst delivering a high-quality performance. Empowered by USB connectivity, you can very simply connect to a PC or Notebook, meaning it's user-friendly as well as effective. You can also control double-sided printing due to its manual duplex option.

Compact without compromise

Unlike some of its larger counterparts, the M12a is compact enough to fit into your workspace without becoming a burden. High-quality documents can be printed easily and effectively with the peace-of-mind that comes with choosing the printing industry’s undisputed leader. Surprisingly for a printer of this price-point, the M12a is also packed with features you’d normally expect from a much pricier printer. Take the HP Auto-On/Auto-Off Technology, for example: after periods of inactivity, it automatically switches itself off, saving you energy.

A name you can trust

The HP Laser Jet Pro series is among the most respected on the market. The M12a offers all the dependability you’d expect of the badge, at a mere fraction of the cost. Consistency comes from its rigorous technical capabilities, as well as the fact it supports original HP ink and toner cartridges. With over 20 years of development behind them, you can trust them to deliver only the highest quality printing.
