    HP LaserJet Pro M281fdw reviews

    Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw All-in-One Laser Printer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer, very happy I participated in a market research study and received this item to evaluate. This printer is very compact, other then being tall, which is great for small spaces. The set-up was easy and not as time consuming as anticipated. The touch screen is simple and sleek, self-explanatory and easy to navigate. The noise/volume level while printing is very minimal and the print quality is excellent. It`s wonderful printing wirelessly. The only negative aspects are the cost of replacement ink cartridges. Overall, I found it to be an amazing product, with capabilities far exceeding any other printer I`ve owned and/or used. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I Expected I purchased the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M281fdw for my wife as an early Xmas present. Her previous multi-function color inkjet printer (also an HP) was slow, noisy, and expensive to operate since the color ink cartridges frequently ran dry, and the printer wouldn't run unless all the cartridges had ink. This LJ doesn't require that since it will continue to operate if one or more of the colors is empty. This printer says it will notify us when the ink is low, and re-order if we agree. That helps too. It hasn't occurred yet, but I expect it to function as described. It's quiet, has great quality print, is quick, and is (relatively) easy to set up. The setup took a little effort, but nothing impossible. The only drawback is a lack of printed manual, but that's almost universal these days. Honestly, we couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the rare laser printers with manual feeder I bought this to replace a aging giant Kyocera printer. It prints flawlessly at least for documents. I wouldn't try photo or high graphic prints but it does the job.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Features, Good Performance In retrospect, I wish I would have gotten 2 full trays instead of 1 full tray and the single document feeder that this one has. The specs show 2 trays, but you need to research which model has full trays. This is good printer if used for the SAME paper size within a document. If you have multiple paper sizes within a document, this is not your model. Overall, printer quality and speed matches the specs. Scanning works well and also matches specs. I would not recommend this product as the features do not fit my business needs, but printer and scanner quality is good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HP long time fan, this replaced a2007 HP 1022n that I passed along to a granddaughter. Works as expected, love the scanner feature and setup was a breeze. Toolbox software is very useful.
    Date published: 2018-03-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good This product doesn't perform as well as my last HP Color Laser Multifunction Printer. Printouts more than 2-3 pages fly out of the "holding area" onto the floor. When faxing (yes, doctors continue to fax), the prompt to key the outgoing fax number that is written on the cover page comes when one is not able to see the number on the cover page. The new product's toner cartridges are not completely full, requiring the user to purchase new toner cartridges sooner. (Toner cartridges are expensive.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Multifunction Printer Setup: The printer was very easy to set up. The instructions were self explanatory and assembly was a breeze. The biggest challenge is taking the printer out of the box because it is a bit heavy about 40 pounds. It is helpful to have more than one individual lifting the product. The printer can be set up by anyone who can read, technical knowledge is definitely not a requirement. The download and installing the printer software is very easy. Quality: The product print quality is 100 percent. The outcome is clear crisp and very easy on the eyes. The printer also is one of the fastest wireless printers I have ever used. In less than a second of hitting print the document is coming out. There are no ink streaks on the page. Features [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
