With the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M280nw, HP renews its multifunction color laser printer for the desktop. Unlike the previous generation, the manufacturer has increased the capacity of the paper cassette to a maximum of 250 sheets, which is positive.

However, you cannot expand the device with extra cassettes. It didn’t take the printer long to transition from Sleep mode to Operate mode. After 18 seconds, a page of text is ready. In addition to the paper cassette already mentioned, the HP model offers a single sheet feeder that can also be used for specialty media such as transparencies.

The paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets – which corresponds to the average and helps to keep the dimensions of the case within limits. Up to 50 originals can be placed in the automatic feeder. For scanning double-sided originals, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M280nw offers a workaround in the scanning software where the user actively intervenes to digitize the back side of an original.

This turns out to be a well-balanced multifunctional color laser printer for the small office or home office. Its dimensions are just so compact that it can be easily placed on the desk. That the HP model is barely audible in sleep mode speaks for its location.

However, sensitive users will set up the device in a different place, because the noise development during use is clearly audible. The printer is on the shortlist if you are looking for a multifunctional printer with a fax function.

However, the good output quality and the absolutely reasonable follow-up costs when using XL toner cartridges can be transferred to the entire model range. A free extension of the manufacturer’s warranty applies to you if you register your model online.

In the case of this printer series, the manufacturer has succeeded in creating a complete package that has earned a recommendation from the editors. HP uses Wi-Fi Direct for the Color LaserJet Pro MFP M280nw to work wirelessly without going through the router.

The last generation of printers was based on NFC. There are also connections for LAN, fax and USB on the housing. The multifunctional color laser printer has a USB host interface for sticks on the front of the device.

To print and scan from a mobile device, use either the Airprint standards for Apple devices or Mopria for Android mobile devices, or use the “HP Smart” app or Google Cloud Print.

HP continues to rely on JetIntelligence technology that minimizes the melting point of the toner particles, helping to save energy.

Overall, with the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M280nw, you get both fax and duplex, LAN, and WLAN features in addition to the printer, scanner, and copier.
