With the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise MFP M578f, HP expands its mid-range multifunction color laser printer with an enterprise model.
The special thing about this: the combination printer has security functions that are otherwise only found in higher device classes.
According to the manufacturer, the M480f will be used in small businesses with up to 10 users, as well as in the home office.
In the test, the HP multifunction printer presented itself as powerful, even if it was a bit peculiar to some extent.
Trimmed for performance, the printer completes test print, scan and copy jobs at a rapid pace. The noise level during use is too high to place directly on the desk.
The integrated security features make sense and delay the operational readiness of the multifunction color laser printer only insignificantly.
We think the HP model is too big for the home office, unless you need a real workhorse for multiple users that you want to manage yourself.
The web interface offers many setting options for this, but requires that you are familiar with management tasks and network technology.
In this case, the M480f can be flexibly adapted to the respective needs without being too strict on other points, such as follow-up costs.
Dedicated to the topic of security HP in different ways with the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise MFP M578f.
It starts as soon as you turn it on: the multifunction color laser printer uses the “HP Sure Start” function to check the control code (BIOS) and repairs it itself if it detects damage.
In the test we can follow the individual steps on the display. The process also takes a little longer than you’re used to when starting up other office combination printers.
The firmware of the multifunction printer is also designed with security in mind. According to HP, the manufacturer checks the system for authentic code with a digital signature at startup.
HP provides regular updates. The new versions can be played on the multifunction printer via a USB stick.
When used on the network, the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise MFP M578f also offers a comprehensive web interface – referred to as HP EWS, which stands for Embedded Web Server.
Additional security features can be set here, such as an administrator password for device security or PIN access for secure printing.
You can also define additional functions here, such as scan to e-mail or scan to a network directory. Administrator knowledge is required to perform all settings.
