HP LaserJet Pro M1217nfw MFP

The ; driverless setup, auto document feeder, and range of connectivity options would make it a valuable addition to a small office.

The printer lacks automatic duplex printing, which may dissuade businesses with high print volume needs.

HP LaserJet Pro M1217nfw MFP

 

HP's M1217nfw MFP is a no-nonsense, mono multifunction printer, complete with wireless connection and very easy maintenance. One or two little niggles hold it back, though.

SmartInstall CD-free setup, Fast first page out, Low running costs

Noisy ADF feed, Above average paper curl, Small control panel

"Product lines are money pits."

Lack of connectivity.

 

Avoid this printer.

Never got that far.

I've spent the last four hours trying to get this printer to connect to my wireless network. A HP technician has been remotely accessing my laptop connected to this printer for the past 90 minutes without success.

Great all-in-one device; no disadvantages experienced

 

So far, we are fully satisfied with the printer. The initial setup is quick and easy and the functionality to quick install drivers via Windows once the printer is in the wireless network is great. Printing and scanning is fast, as expected. It has...

Does absolutely what it is supposed to do, quick printing, quick installation under Windows 7.

First toner has smaller size than replacement ones you can buy --> you have to buy a new one quiet soon.

"Works well, one big problem"

 

Great product, with one important exception.

Fast, mostly does what it is supposed to do

Will only print at 300 dpi from document feeder, can't change to lower number which would vastly reduce size of saved files. Can change DPI only from flatbed scanner.
