HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dw

 

The HP LaserJet Pro 400 color Printer M451dw's strong point is high-quality output, particularly for graphics and photos.

High-quality output across the board. Paper handling suitable for a small to medium size office or workgroup. Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

Relatively slow for the price. Text is not quite on the same high level of quality as graphics and photos.

Dead On Arrival

 

Most of them are good little printers for the money

Dead on Arrival - Be careful of lemons - get them installed and tested before the return period expires for newegg.

HP M451dw

 

The prints come out looking good. The big plus is this printer is a duplex color and that has worked without any problems. I don't think I have has a single paper jam and I have owed it for over a year. The supplies web server built in works well.

Toners are a little small but that is to be somewhat expected considering the printer has to hold four colors and there is only so much space.

Great printer so far

 

bottom line is this...this printer is $289.00. a 4 pack of toner to refill it is $352.00. WHY would i not just buy a brand new printer instead of refilling it with toner for more money? if i recall, its been this price for a long time...this is not a...

crisp, clear print jobs, duplex printing is a big plus for our assembly department (printing instructions to go in product packages).

none so far, but only been using it a month

Great printer

 

If you have space, it's a great way to have an extra printer for occasional color printing. I wouldn't use it as a primary printer in a high volume office - that's what black/white laser printers are for.

Works like an HP. Never a problem, ever. Monitoring software keeps me up to on supply levels (toney, paper).

Toner is not cheap.

Five Eggs!

 

It's a fast reliable printer. Now that HP has fixed their terrible printer software installation packages the IT community can finally recommend HP printers again.

• Great quality color prints • Fast • Quiet

HP M451dw

 

I would expect this error if I bought re-manufactured / non HP original toner, but this is what HP put in there, not me.

Don't know yet

Two out of the four starter toner cartridges are defective. I made sure the orange plastic was pulled out. Made sure they were seated properly. Turned off and back on 3 times. Will not print due to "supply memory error" So now I have to buy new toner...
