HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw

 

An entry-level color laser AIO printer, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw prints well overall, albeit somewhat expensively, making it a good fit for companies that don't require more than a few hundred prints and copies each month.

Good output quality. Compact. Easy-to-navigate 5-inch color touch screen. Strong mobile connectivity. Supports USB thumb drive.

Somewhat high purchase price. No automatic document feeder. Lacks near-field communication (NFC). Slow for the price. Graphics and photo quality could be better.

Bottom Line: An entry-level color laser AIO printer, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw prints well overall, albeit somewhat expensively, making it a good fit for companies that don't require more than a few hundred prints and copies each month.

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw Review

 

Great balance of functionality and quality for any home office

Great text and graphics quality, great interface

Can be expensive, relatively slow for a laser

The M281fdw combines all the printing, faxing, copying, and scanning that you could hope for in a multifunction printer, and does so with aplomb. There isn't really a task that the M281fdw does not excel in, except for being easy on the wallet. If your...

HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw printer review

The HP LaserJet Pro M281FDW is a large, multi-function laser printer that could even appeal to small business owners. It has an excellent scanner on the top and an automatic document feeder for multi-page scans. But does this pricey laser printer have...

Everything I Expected

Great Printer

 

I totally love this printer. The thing I like the most is the high-quality printing that is super fast. It's also a great size for a small office. The touchscreen is very easy to use. The only downside would be the setup for the scan to folder option...
