HP LaserJet M1536dnf MFP Review

 

After reviewing a few a couple of HP printers, the HP 6500A Plus and HP Office Jet 100 (L411a), we had very high expectations from the HP LaserJet 1536dnf multifunction printer. Here is a quick review of the printer followed by a detailed one.

The HP LaserJet 1536dnf multifunction printer does each of the task, i.e. printing, scanning and copying (we did not test faxing) efficiently and with good quality as well. Add to it the simple and easy to use UI and you have a dependable office...

HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf

 

The market for multifunction printers in particular, mono models has become very competitive. We take a look at the new HP LaserJet ProM1536dnf to see just how well it stacks up.

Logical control panel; print is as expected; clean with no sign of black toner

Not the most striking design; No wireless option; Claimed speeds are wishful

No advanced features for Windows Server 2012

 

Packing this up, returning it, and buying a Lexmark. This will be my last HP product after several years of putting up with declining quality and tempermental junk.

Um, it was recognized quickly when I plugged it into my LAN

1. This device is nothing more than a dumb printer to a Windows Server machine, despite what is said by HP employees in HP's support forums and what is suggested by the fact that it lets you download a "full featured driver package" after selecting...

Fast Delivery, Easy Set Up, Works Great. Just picked up a 2nd MFP for a different location to share toner, etc. The other one has been working with no problems for over a year. Needed a new fax that worked with a digital phone line and it works fine

Toner cost is high, but hard to find a printer that does not have high toner cost
