Good level of equipment is almost a prerequisite for this price
Like its competitor from Dell, the HP Laserjet offers all the networking features you could want from a printer. An integrated LAN printer server allows the printer to be connected directly to the existing LAN port. If you would like to use Wi-Fi, you can do it wirelessly. And this is where the first advantage of the HP printer comes into play:
Best comfort for Apple users (and other mobile devices)
While printing from mobile devices is no longer a special feature, it's still a bit of a breeze when a printer supports AirPrint on its own. AirPrint makes it possible to print from Apple devices and whether iPhone, iPad or Macbook without the installation of additional drivers directly wirelessly. But the users of other devices are not neglected when it comes to mobile printing. Thanks to HP ePrint, it is even possible to print to the printer from anywhere in the world via the Internet (Internet connection required). More information about ePrint can be found on the manufacturer page.
HP is bought mainly because of the long tradition in the printer business
Many would justify the low cost for an HP printer directly with the name. Many offices still have old HP equipment, which after a very long time still faithfully do their job and print in outstanding quality. The most exciting question is thus hereby:
What is the print quality of the HP LJ Pro 200 M251n?
Print quality is perceived subjectively by different people. Therefore, my preferred approach to assess print quality is to get as many opinions as possible. And the HP does it with flying colors. First-class print quality, great colors, no streaks or other confounding factors, overwhelming edge sharpness. Simply great.
Customer review by H.Grill
Thus, the user is not alone, "The prints have a super quality," it says in another review. "Whether BW or color prints and they all have a good contrast and are completely sufficient for our purposes," it says in another. Numerous further reviews praise the print quality. At the time of going to press, 20 (out of a total of 30) reviews were rated 5 star rating, there was no single rating with only 1 or 2 stars. Overall, the printer came to an outstanding 4.6 out of 5 stars. Here you can clearly see that the HP's very good print quality has a very good effect on the overall impression of the printer.
The only thorn in the eye? The toner costs
Well, with so many positive voices about the HP Laserjet, sooner or later there will be a catch. This looks no different with HP than with other color laser printers. Original toners are very expensive. A standard black toner cartridge from HP costs about 55 €. With a capacity of around 1,600 pages, this entails side costs of around 3.5 cents.
To rescue rushing the "compatible toner"
While expensive original toners are the norm for color lasers, cheap alternative toners tend to be the exception. Not all models come with cheap third-party toner. However, it looks good at the HP: For around 100 ¬ there are of the company Logic-Seek, the complete set of 4 (black and three colors). This is still around 25 € per toner. Such a toner will hold 2,400 pages (black) or 1,800 pages (per color).
Conclusion: This is the optimal printer for you, the HP is clearly aimed at anyone who puts a lot of printing (optimal range according to HP up to 1500 prints per month), with special emphasis on print quality.
We can not argue with the HP Laserjet that the original toners are very expensive. This is no different for all other manufacturers of color laser printers. On the positive side, we can credit the printer that there are cheap third-party alternative toner available. This allows a very economical operation with the HP printer for anyone who wants to use these foreign toner. Together with the Dell C1760nw, the two printers are the test winners in the field of color lasers without multifunction printers. The ultimate winner can only exist if you know your needs. If you value minimal operating costs, Dell is the right choice for you. If you want the best possible print quality instead, you are right with the HP Laserjet Pro 200 M251n printer.
