The HP Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw appears 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 easily be placed on a desk. The location speaks for the fact that the HP model is barely audible in idle mode.

Sensitive users, however, will move the device to a different location as the noise is clearly audible during use. The printer is on the shortlist if you are looking for a multifunctional printer with a fax function.

However, the good output quality and fairly reasonable follow-up costs when using XL toner cartridges can be carried over to the entire model range. Double-sided printing saves paper and the automatic document feeder allows easy scanning of up to 50 originals in succession.

However, automatic feeding does not work automatically on both sides. the HP Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw takes little time to transition from sleep mode to work mode.

A text page is ready after 18 seconds. In comparison, the same print job takes only two seconds less when the printer has already warmed up. Multi-page print jobs show that the printer works slightly faster than its predecessor at 21 pages per minute.

Like today’s inkjet combination devices, HP uses Wi-Fi Direct for the printer to work wirelessly without going through the router. The last generation of printers had built on NFC here.

There are also connections for LAN, fax and USB on the housing. The multifunction color laser printer provides a USB host interface on the front of the device for sticks. If you want to print and scan with your mobile device, you can use either the Airprint standards for Apple devices or Mopria for Android mobile devices, but you can also use the “HP Smart” app or Google Cloud Print. This includes the main routes.

HP ships the HP Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw with PCL-6 drivers. If you want to print Postscript, you have to rely on the printer’s internal emulation. Standard double-sided printing is enabled in the driver – helping to save paper.
