HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw

 

The HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw color laser printer is a great fit for personal or light-duty shared use, with fast speed, high-quality output, network connectivity, and support for mobile printing.

Both cloud-based and Wi-Fi mobile printing. Can print from USB memory key. Ethernet and Wi-Fi for connection to a network. Wi-Fi Direct. NFC. Fast. High-quality output in our tests.

Low paper capacity.

Conclusion If you need a shared printer for medium- to heavy-duty use in a micro office, be sure to consider the Brother HL-3170CDW and the Brother HL-L8250CDN. Both offer a higher paper capacity than the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw, and both are fast...

HP LaserJet Pro M252dw Review

 

A great model if you want high end performance and don't need a built-in scanner

Great text and graphics quality, great interface

Relatively slow for a laser

The M252dw is a high performing, single function printer. Its perfect for those that want a high quality printing option and already have or don't need a scanner.

HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw

 

The HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw is a small office or home office (SOHO) A4 colour laser printer with duplex printing, a colour touchscreen and compact form. It can be used over a wired network or wirelessly as with quick setup via NFC for some mobile...

Top-panel USB socket ; Multi-purpose paper feed ; Quiet when printing

Only 150-sheet paper tray ; Slow Economode print ; Flimsy USB socket cover

There’s a lot to like about the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw, from its smart looks to its versatile wireless connection and duplex print. We’d like to see a higher capacity paper tray – or an option for a second tray – but other than that, it’s a very...

HP Colour Laserjet Pro M252dw review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Colour Laserjet Pro M252dw is a standard colour laser printer - it doesn't scan or copy. You can print to it wirelessly from laptops, smartphones, tablets and more. And, as it's a laser model, it's economical to run. But what's the quality like...

Great Printer. Works well, and not too expensive.

 

We have a Laser Jet Pro M475dw at another location. It is also a good printer. We have had it about 10 yrs. The M252dw is less expensive than 4 ink cartridges for the m474. It works great. we have had no problems. The wifi connection is much improved...

Design flaw

 

I bought this printer to replace a new M452nw due to problems printing straight vertical lines (a lot of people has the same issue). Overall this printer works very good, but has a big flaw in its design: you cannot easily grab your documents from the...
