HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer

 

The HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer is a surprisingly good fit as a workhorse printer in a micro office.

Fast. High-quality text and graphics. Duplexes. Prints through cloud. Ethernet. Wi-Fi. HP's equivalent to Wi-Fi Direct.

Photo quality is at the low end of what you might expect from inkjets or drug store prints.

If your main concerns are speed and paper handling, you can save a little money by choosing the HP Officejet Pro 8100 ePrinter or Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4020. However, the HP Officejet Pro 251dw Printer delivers essentially the same speed and paper...

HP OfficeJet Pro 251dw

 

Attractive small business printer with very competitive running costs

The OfficeJet Pro 251dw isn’t perfect. Its colour printing could definitely be faster, and the lack of a built-in scanner is disappointing in a printer costing almost £200.00. Even so, it provides good quality for text, graphics and photos, and its...

HP OfficeJet Pro 251dw review - perfect for small businesses and cheap to run

 

HP seems determined to push its inkjet printers up-market and get them into people's offices as well their homes. Following on from the high-speed OfficeJet X551dw, which was aimed at larger organisations, it has now come up with the OfficeJet Pro...

fast text printing, good quality for text and graphics, highly competitive running costs, supports AirPrint

colour and photo printing could be faster, no scanning/copying features

I am not happy with this product

 

This is one of the worst printer I have ever come across with. When I am trying to print many back-to-back pages, I have to insert the paper one by one for it to print properly. If not, papers will be wasted for the printer will get jammed at the rear...

This product offers fast printing

 

This product offers fast printing and is convenient to use. It was easy to set up and the wireless printing is a great plus.

So Far So Good for Me 2

 

This printer is on the ball. Setup was easy. It took me a while to figure out the eprint feature but I finally got it. Changing of the ink cartridges couldn't be easier. Print time is speedy and the quality is good. So Far.

This product needs work

 

This printer is the second one I have purchased in just over a year. The first one I returned because it would not feed photo paper. HP tech support could not find out what was wrong. I thought I would give this new model a try. Very fast easy set up...

This product has great ease of use

 

It was extremely easy to add the printer to my wireless network. It worked well without trouble and produces a nice print product.

HP keeps getting better

 

Have owned many HP printers and scanners and have been pleased with their performance. All have been handed down in search of a better one. This HP 251dw fulfils this quest , will keep this one. Easy setup, great photo prints, cannot believe the print...

So far, so good!

 

The 251dw was very easy to initialize. The test pages were excellent. Will have to wait awhile to evaluate ink consumption. The ink cartridge tray is a very different design from all my previous HP printers. It doesn't have that solid "snap in" feel...
