A LASER PRINTER FOR HIGH VOLUME PRINTING
HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477fdw
you can either use a wired or wireless connection. Both Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print 2.0 are supported, as do wireless direct printing (including Mopria-certified Android devices) and NFC touch-to-print. The last point simply means you can print by touching an NFC-enabled mobile device to the printer.
The M477fdw has an advertised A4 print speed of 27ppm, for both black and color documents. Automatic duplex printing also comes as standard. That said, the actual experience depends on the types of documents you print and their complexity. For reference, with my standard test suite, I got a range of about 22 to 25ppm. By all accounts, this is very fast, but it’s also worth pointing out that recent Epson WorkForce and Canon MAXIFY inkjets have proven that fast print speeds are no longer a laser printer exclusive.
Still, printed documents displayed sharp and fullbodied text, so I’ve no qualms recommending it for churning business reports. Photos were a hit-and-miss affair though: with some color inaccuracy and lack of finesse in handling details.
So, is it worth getting the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477fdw? The sturdy build quality, fast print speeds, mobile printing options, and security features like LDAP authentication and authorization are several things that HP has gotten right with this printer. However, at RM3,589.19, I’m a bit surprised that it didn’t outright blow away even the newest inkjets in terms of print speed and quality. by
