HP CE863A LaserJet Pro 400 Color MFP M475dn Printer – does it again !

Printer does all the 2 pages per sheet, back to back that was required and at a speed ok for the home office. The automatic scanner feed has already failed, which is a shame. It may be just because of a piece of torn paper but theredoes not appear to be an easy way to disassemble and check. Not sure why i did not get the wireless version. The windows installation was easy as the right software is in the printer, but having to download the macbookpro software was a pain.

Substantial features and elegant. I have been using the hp colour laserjet 475dn for just over a month now, and overall i am really pleased with this all-in-one printer. I had often considered getting a colour laser all-in-one duplex machine, but the price always seemed out of reach. However, with hp offering a tempting promotional offer of £100 cash-back on this product, and my existing colour photosmart on its last legs, i thought it was an excellent opportunity to invest in this printer. So far, i am happy with this product. Set-upsetting up the printer was straightforward. I connected it to the computer via the ethernet port, and the software installed directly from the printer memory, without having to load the supplied cd. Although this particular model doesn’t come with a dedicated wireless adaptor, it was still fairly straightforward to connect it wirelessly to the other computers on the network, by ‘sharing’ it. What do i use it for?in the month that i have had this printer, i have used it for regular document printing, and scanning of a variety of documents. I have made a few copies of documents as well.

I have my own small business and previously had an hp mfp (multi function printer); the clj2840. But as times as moved on, and pc os’s have to (i am on windows 8 and my business partner on windows 7) we were forced to upgrade by microsoft/hp . The old printer was actually still working .I guess that says a lot about hp product, i think we had owned it for 7 years. We do a fair bit of scanning and emailing of documents, some colour printing and an average amount of black and white printing. We do no faxing nowadaysthis new printer is a lot smaller, sleeker and quieter. The wireless functionality is a great feature, i only use this as my new laptop doesn’t even have an ethernet port . There is no lag or delay as compared to wired printing. We are still working our way ’round it trying out new [software functions such as ‘scan to a network folder’ but this hasn’t worked out of the box and looks like it requires a call to hp. ]

  • Substantial features and elegant
