HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw

 

The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw can be a good fit as a personal printer in any size office.

Small. Low price. Wired and Wi-Fi network connections. Supports both Wi-Fi- and cloud-based mobile printing.

Low paper capacity. No duplexer, even as an option. High cost per page.

If you won't be printing enough for the running costs to matter, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw delivers a lot of printer for a low price. In addition to printing, it can scan, copy, and fax; it offers the convenience of an ADF as well as a...

Unless you don't print much, the expensive toner and dumbed-down features on this color laser MFP are going to frustrate you.

Impressive print quality ; Easy-to-use touchscreen control panel

Slow performance ; Meager paper handling and no duplexing ; Expensive toner

There's no disparaging the LaserJet Pro M177fw's output—it's top notch. But as with all color-laser products at this price point, the toner is too expensive, and the features are just adequate. We suggest you start at the $500 level if you really want...

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw Review and Ratings

 

This low-cost color laser AIO has excellent print quality, as well as a touch-screen interface, a built-in document feeder, and Wi-Fi. It's best suited for light duty, due to its per-page costs and modest print speeds.

Excellent print quality ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Color touch screen ; Built-in ADF ; EPrint and AirPrint support

Higher-than-average per-page costs ; Relatively slow print speeds ; Limited paper capacity ; Scanning must be initiated from PC

There’s much to like about the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw—as long as you don’t plan to print a lot of pages, especially color ones, with it. The print quality is excellent for such a low purchase price. The touch-screen LCD and menu system are...

HP Color LaserJet Pro M177fw review: Great output, but little else

 

This color laser multifunction printer offers the usual compromises for this bargain price range: slow performance, minimal features, and high toner costs. If you don't print much then you might not mind all of this. Otherwise, a like-priced business...

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Laserjet Pro MFP M177fw is an all-in-one colour laser printer designed for home office use. It's a large machine with wi-fi and ethernet connectivity so you can print from a range of devices. It turns out sharp-looking text prints, but is it...

HP Colour Laser MFP M177fw

 

This is a Multi-Function Device in that it can print, scan, copy and for those who still use it fax. Unlike the recent offering that was monochrome this is colour and of course somewhat larger but in real terms really not that much larger.

The HP Colour Laser MFP M177fw measures 42x41x32cm, the only figure that needs a little more space is the last one if you are raising the lid on the flatbed, but as there is a rather good sheet feed then you only really need the flatbed to copy pages...

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw

 

The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M177fw can be a good fit as a personal printer in any size office.

The printer’s quality overall is a touch below standard because of slightly below-par text. Fortunately, text quality for lasers is high enough that even being slightly below average is still pretty good. I wouldn’t use the M177fw for serious desktop...

HP Colour LaserJet Pro M177fw review

 

The M177fw is an odd device. In some ways it's an absolute bargain, providing a versatile multifunction colour laser printer at a price of just £274. That's well within the reach of small businesses and home workers who need laser-quality output for...

excellent print quality, ethernet, wifi and AirPrint connectivity

slow colour printing, very expensive toner cartridges
