The LaserJet Enterprise 500 M551xh Network Color Laser Printer from HP outputs up to 33 pages/minute in both black and color. The printer's high 1200 dpi resolution (black and color) and high monthly duty cycle (up to 75,000 pages) let you execute high volume print jobs in-house, saving the time and money of outsourcing print jobs.

The printer's 3-tray, 1100-sheet total input capacity allows you to print more without interruption. The second tray also provides the option of keeping a 2nd, commonly used media type such as labels or photo paper in the printer so you don't have to keep switching media.

The printer's multiple connectivity options make it easy to get any print job done wherever you are. In addition to 2 standard USB ports, the printer features Ethernet connectivity and an embedded print server so you can easily share the printer with your entire team. An integrated 250 GB hard drive lets you store commonly used files in the printer itself for easy reprinting from any computer on the network. Don't worry about keeping your data secure; the printer's built-in security measures ensure your proprietary data stays out of the wrong hands. Not an IT expert?

    Comments about HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 M551xh Network Color Laser Printer:

    Setup was very easy. Very good looking machine. The quality of color prints is excellent. Color photos, are okay, but not great. We are still working with different settings and papers to try to improve the photo quality. Also noticed some of the prints were not aligned properly. There may be an adjustment for this, just haven't gotten there yet.
