You don’t need to change laser printer toner as often as inkjet cartridges.

While the prices of laser printers have come down, the reasons why businesses swear by them remain. HP Color LaserJet printers have incredible advantages:

HP is proud to have celebrated 25 years of LaserJet printing. With all of that experience, it’s no wonder HP Color LaserJet printers are renowned for their outstanding reliability.

Low cost of ownership
Because the majority of HP LaserJet printers and MFPs are ENERGY STAR® qualified, they save on energy, and the need for replacement parts is extremely low, saving you money over the lifetime of your printer.

See how HP Instant-on technology saves additional energy.

Infrequent maintenance
Because these printers use long-lasting toner, you’ll rarely be interrupted by messages telling you that your printer needs attention.

And the print drum, another part that occasionally needs replacing on most laser printers, is included in most HP toner cartridges, so that’s one less interruption to worry about.

Lower cost professional-quality printing
Print your own brochures and other marketing materials and save up to 50% compared with printing at copy shops.1

If you’re someone who prints all the time—and in large quantities—choose a printer with a high print volume, like the HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw

Before you choose an HP Color LaserJet printer, answer a few questions:

How many prints do I need per month?
The monthly volume recommendation for each printer will tell you whether it matches your needs. For example, if you print around 500 pages per month, choose a printer such as HP LaserJet Pro CP1025nw Color Printer. It has a recommended monthly volume of 200 – 850 pages.

However, if you’ll be sharing your printer with a group that prints larger amounts, you may want to consider a printer such as the HP LaserJet Pro 400 Color M451nw, designed to handle a monthly volume of between 750 and 2,000 pages—but able to handle a duty cycle (monthly maximum) of up to 40,000 pages.

Which paper handling options would I use?
Paper handling is simply the way you and your printer use paper. For example, if you frequently print double-sided pages, you might consider a printer with automatic duplexing or one that is compatible with an automatic duplexing accessory. Find out more about automatic duplex printing.

Also, if you’d like to print on different types of paper without having to get out of your chair, you’ll want a printer with at least two paper trays, or you have the option on many models to add extra paper trays as your needs grow.

See the entire array of available Paper handling accessories for HP LaserJet Printers and MFPs.

What are my networking needs?
HP offers color LaserJet printers with wired and wireless networking options:

  • Wired networking: Many HP Color LaserJet printers are equipped with either built-in Ethernet networking (fast) or built-in Jetdirect Gigabit networking (fastest).
  • Wireless networking: Select HP Color LaserJet printers, such as the HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw Color MFP, offer built-in wireless printing capabilities.
