question

How accurate do you feel the colors are? A little sibling HP color printer does not render colors very well.
Asked by: Alan
I am a graphic designer and send jobs both to traditional 4 color and high-end digital presses. This printer produces office quality prints, it is fast and does a reasonable job on uncoated text and gloss. The colors are not as vivid as larger machines but it renders a usable product for internal use.

Does this print two sided? I don't see it if it does.
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. M553dn and M553x are duplex printers. You can turn the option on or off when you print your document. Great printer.

question

How long should the toner last?
Asked by: Anonymous
OEM Black shipped with printer used up must faster than expected. Use depends on what is being printed. I was printing color documents with less black text vs color images. Black emptied first. There should be a little window, or some way to visually judge how much stuff is in these things. right now we have to trust the manufacturers. Trust but verify. Otherwise printer prints pretty well. Better than the older HP color laser I was using. May be seeing some paper feed issues with label sheets.

question

Can I insert a single sheet, such as a sheet of checks, to print?
Asked by: Robert P.
Absolutely. I do it all the time. I am always running test prints on specialty papers to do color corrections. I have never had a problem printing one sheet at a time. I bought this printer in December 2015, and I have printed thousands of pages already. Great printer.

question

can this printer connected by wifi at home??without a cable connected to my laptop
Asked by: Anonymous
This printer does not have a built in WiFi functionality, though it can be added with an accessory from HP. However, if you connect it to your network using its Ethernet port the printer will be available to other computers on the network including wireless devices (assuming your network has a WiFi enabled router). Hope this helps. Good luck.
