    HP M553x Reviews

    LaserJet Enterprise M553x Color Laser Printer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the Printer - Hate their Software HP makes an awesome laser printer!? The colors are bright and crisp and the print quality is fantastic.? Past HP laser printers I've owned are durable and largely trouble free.? However, HP's software is another matter.? I had to call HP support to install and connect this printer to my router as it could not find the correct IP Address by itself.? Had to call a 2nd time to correctly configure it for the ePrint and establish a "Claim Code" which is unique to HP (this is a separate process).? I found the HP technicians to be competent and friendly so my printer is now correctly configured to my network.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Color quality of photos prints too dark! When printing anything with photos ALL pictures are too dark, to the point I need to utilize my old printer and cannot print brochures or presentation materials.
    Date published: 2018-01-28
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an amazing product. Simple instructions. I used the literature and CD that came with the product and the printer was up and running in a matter of minutes. The iphone and ipad print to it wirelessly and the office computers print though the network connection. It is fast even when printing color and even the double-sided color prints look great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Printer I've Had I have owned my business for over 13 years and gone through a lot of printers.? This is by far the best printer I have ever purchased.? I have 4 trays on it, it prints beautifully and quickly, and it was a breeze to install.? Highly recommend, and worth every penny.

    Does the HP LaserJet Enterprise M553x Color Laser Printer come with the ability to print using a WIFI network? The option I see on the site says that it has wifi built in. But checking with HP - they say you have to buy another accessory.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    You need to get the Jetdirect 2900nw in order to print via WIFI. The installation is pretty straight forward, but if you encounter any issues, contact their support for business (even if the printer is in your home); and they'll take care of it for you. I actually had the best customer service experience with them that I've had in years ( :
