HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw printer review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP LaserJet Pro M281FDW is a large, multi-function laser printer that could even appeal to small business owners. It has an excellent scanner on the top and an automatic document feeder for multi-page scans. But does this pricey laser printer have...

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

 

An entry-level color laser AIO printer, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw prints well overall, albeit somewhat expensively, making it a good fit for companies that don't require more than a few hundred prints and copies each month.

Good output quality. Compact. Easy-to-navigate 5-inch color touch screen. Strong mobile connectivity. Supports USB thumb drive.

Somewhat high purchase price. No automatic document feeder. Lacks near-field communication (NFC). Slow for the price. Graphics and photo quality could be better.

Bottom Line: An entry-level color laser AIO printer, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw prints well overall, albeit somewhat expensively, making it a good fit for companies that don't require more than a few hundred prints and copies each month.

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw review: Fast print jobs for home or small businesses

Compact design ; Price is reasonable ; Prints quickly ; Works with mobile

Photo quality can be a hit or miss

Now that you’ve read everything, it’s time to for the final thoughts of HP’s LaserJet Pro printer. As a printer, it’ll do the same thing as just about any other printer out there when it comes to printing, scanning, or fax documents but with HP, you’re...

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw Review

 

Great balance of functionality and quality for any home office

Great text and graphics quality, great interface

Can be expensive, relatively slow for a laser

The M281fdw combines all the printing, faxing, copying, and scanning that you could hope for in a multifunction printer, and does so with aplomb. There isn't really a task that the M281fdw does not excel in, except for being easy on the wallet. If your...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Flexible options

 

Having previously had three HP mono laser printers which lasted 8 years, 7 years and 12 years respectively, I opted for a colour inkjet when needing an AirPrint machine compatible with an iPad / iPhone. Whilst this lasted a creditable 6 years it gave...

Easy to set-up and love the fact that the printer has it's own email address so you can print to it anywhere

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Perfect for home use!

 

I need a colour printer, and a laser is much more economical than the standard inkjets. The size is as large as I can accommodate, and the cartridges are easy to install - plus benefit of returning dead cartridges for recycling FOC. Suits me exactly.
