HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw Review: Nice Laser Printer Is Duplex-Deprived

 

The $450 (as of March 9, 2012) HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw color laser printer has nice output and is relatively speedy considering the price. However, it suffers from the same pricey toner of most entry-level color laser printers, and it lacks...

Good output quality ; Good performance

No automatic duplexer ; Expensive toner

Expensive toner and the lack of automatic duplexing make this small-office printer less appealing than it could be.

HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw review

 

The HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451 series includes three workgroup printers. The M451nw comes with both wireless (802.11b/g/n) and wired Fast Ethernet 10/100 capabilities. The model we physically reviewed wasn't the M451nw, but the more expensive...

The HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw is a well-specified workgroup printer that produces strong and fast output. If your main priority is text, it'll prove a good choice - but if colour printing is more your bag, look to the Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4535...

HP LaserJet Pro 400 M451nw review

 

The HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw's lack of an automatic duplexer is an issue that you can overcome by opting for the M451dn (no Wi-Fi) or the M451dw (with Wi-Fi and, despite the absence of the letter n in the name, ethernet). Alas, neither of those...

Excellent Printer

 

Fast and sharp printing. Hooked it up to my network in just a few min. and the WIFI works great. The original print carts lasted for almost 6 months in a home office environment. I would buy another without hesitation.

Scam "protection" plan

 

if HP is in bed with financial "insurance scam" crooks, then it's probably in my best interest to avoid HP for the forseable future. I also regret buying the HP since a much better featured, top brand, color laser - with scanner built in - came out on...

The product listing was spectacular with the featured product protection plan.

The insurance company is dirty, their so-called protection is an outright scam IMHO. First, they don't tell you that you're not covered unless you go out of your way to find their so-called policy form. Since you paid for it, wouldn't they just send it...

Excellent quality color documents. Plug n Play setup.

 

Buy one today don't hesitate and miss this great price!

Just what my office needed was a great color printer. B/W printing gets old after a while and color gives the financial statements I give to my clients more definition. We are a professional accounting office and the color documents make us stand out....

Was missing the CD in the box but downloaded what I needed from HP website.

Great Printer

 

If you want photo quality at it's best, stick to inkjet. In my case I print very rarely, so an inkjet is inconvenient, since it dries up if not used very often. For the odd picture I may want to print I can head to the store and have it printed for 30...
