HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn

 

The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn is fast, low-priced, and has output quality good enough to let you print your own marketing materials.

Fast. Above-average output quality across the board in testing. Excellent graphics. 650-sheet standard paper capacity. PCL and PostScript drivers.

Display is a non-touch LCD.

Even without any of the extras, the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn is a formidable color laser and a great value, a worthy successor to the HP M551dn as our Editors' Choice. Not only is it priced to sell, and has relatively low running costs, its...

HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn Review and Ratings

 

Pricey toner undermines this otherwise excellent single-function LaserJet, which is competitively fast and prints well (surprisingly so, with photos).

Fast print speed ; Excellent print quality, especially with small fonts ; Multiple expansion options ; Stylish and well-built

A bit pricey ; Full set of four high-yield cartridges is more than $1,000 ; Wi-Fi module costs extra ; Many mobile options unavailable without Wi-Fi upgrade ; Cost per page too high

Our bottom line? The Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn really has only two significant flaws, and both of them are money problems: the purchase price, and its CPPs, both of which are a bit high. Everything else—the print quality, the print speed, and...

HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn review

 

HP unveils a lean, mean printing machine ideally suited to busy workgroups

Compact design; High print speeds; Good output quality; Low running costs and power consumption; Fast duplexing

No integral wireless

HP changes the landscape for workgroup colour printing as the M553dn delivers a superb range of features and rock-bottom running costs. It’s fast as well and the new toner provides quality output whilst keeping power consumption to an all-time low

Consumer review (hp.com)

Fast. Print quality seems good.

 

Good printer so far. Does work on local network (when local network works). (Not an HP network.) I like the large input tray. Cannot say about toner usage as I haven't printed that much. The only problem was that this printer wouldn't print in the desk...

Great right out of the box!

 

Purchased one of these for my assistant about a year ago. Easy set up right out of the box. Recently it became my turn to upgrade and this was a natural choice. Again, easy set up. The toughest things are getting the HP M553dn out of the box and...

Prints quietly, leaks toner, has errors

 

Printer seemed very good at first, so much so that I bought a 2nd one for the office. Now one of them has intermittent networking errors and leaks toner everywhere from time to time. Very glad I purchased the extended warranty. I wouldn't buy another...
