HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M525f

 

The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M525f ($2,099 direct) is a massive multifunction printer (MFP) with some neat features, including a large touch screen and a built-in hard drive. It's reasonably fast and has good text quality, though it stumbles a...

Very good text quality. Built-in, secure hard drive. Large touch screen. 50-sheet reversing ADF

Sub-par photos. Slightly sub-par graphics. Running costs on the high side for its price. Optional wireless adapter is pricey

The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M525f is a formidable, rich-featured monochrome laser multifunction printer for SMB and workgroups, best for text printing.

HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 Color MFP M575dn

 

The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 Color MFP M575dn is very fast for a color laser multifunction printer and prints excellent graphics.

Very fast. Above-par graphics quality. Large color touch screen. HP ePrint capabilities. Password-protected printing.

Slightly sub-par text and photo quality. Lacks fax capabilities (a $300 option). Relatively modest paper capacity.

TOP TEN REVIEWS - EXELLENCE

Expert review by: (toptenreviews.com_old)

HP LaserJet Enterprise 500

 

The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 is a laser printer with many benefits. The biggest advantage to using this printer is the excellent printing quality it provides. With a high resolution of 1200 x 1200dpi, your images are sharp and clear. The high monthly...

This laser printer can print both black and white and color pages at a rate of 33 pages per minute

This printer has large dimensions and weighs 76 lbs

An extensive feature set including high resolution, fast printing speeds and a high monthly duty cycle makes this a tough laser printer to beat.

Great Accessory

 

Used with an HPLJ M401DNE printer. All paper handling, including auto-duplexing, works as expected. I use this tray (3) for Letter, and the internal tray (2) for legal and Windows doesn't have any problem defaulting to this and sending jobs designated...

Effortless installation - just line-up guide pins and lower printer - no other connections. Works perfectly with auto paper selection. Holds an entire ream of paper.

Price. Cost 63% of printer. Then again, the printer was a great deal and the extra tray is a quality piece of equipment.

Perfect. This will make life so much easier. No changing paper anymore, just load both drawers with paper, checks or envelopes and forget about.

The department we purchased this for is really enjoying this printer and its ease of use. They do a lot of printing and usually need some help and I have hardly heard a word! The only thing lacking that we have discovered would be the ability to print...

HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color Printer M551dn

 

I am not pleased at all with this printer. There are error messages that are popping up frequently. There is nothing stuck in the printer. The printer has been too tempermental. I do not like it. I have been in the technical field for over 16 years, so...

HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color Printer M551n

 

I've never written a review but I was frustrated when I set out to get a new printer, and the newest printers didn't have many reviews. (This one had 4.) For starters, I'm a Mac user. I've owned 3 HP LaserJet B&W printers over the years, all solid...
