LaserJet Pro 200 Color M276n All-in-One Printer : OK for the money

My only regret is that it will not scan to a txt or rtf file. My previous hp printer (hp3210) did and it worked very well. You could scan a page of text and it would become a text file, which could be manipulated in ms word (or similar). The documentation with this printer implies that this feature is free but when downloaded asks for over £100.

Does exactly what you want it to. Does exactly what you want it to. Forgot to check all the specs when i ordered it and have found out that it dies not support manual paper feed which is a little disappointing. Other than that it works a treat.

Cheap as chips – what’s not to like?. My first laser printer was an hp laserjet 2. This is the latest in my relatively short line of laser printers, all of them hp. It prints, scans, copies and faxes and it’s dead easy to use. It cost (just) less than £200. Toner is about the same price per cartridge as it was back then in the eighties. This machine has four toner cartridges where i used only to have one, so toner will cost me more of my sadly devalued pounds. I’ve sourced reused hp toner cartridges from a reputable supplier for about £100 the set so that’s not too bad. I’m using 80gm paper and there’s not a hint of the dreaded curl. I expect technology to advance and for prices to fall but this machine just leaves me gobsmacked. If it flew me to the moon i couldn’t be more pleased.

Very good, but problem with the net. Very good , but problem with the net connectation.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Excellent quality from this printer
  • Great piece of kit works very well
  • An excellent printer

I bought this more than a year ago and love it. It does have to be plugged in. I bought this more than a year ago and love it. It does have to be plugged in but there is a way of making it work wirelessly via your wifi router – i have just not had the need to install it. I still have the original ink cartridges in there which were supplied with the printer. Even though it has been saying that the black ink is very low now and asking me to replace the cartridge, it’s still going strong and there is no decrease in the quality of print. The printer itself is fast and the quality of printing is outstanding. Even photographs on bog standard printer paper come out really well. The flat bed scanner is very good and fast as well. I have not used the document feeder much so can’t really comment on that.

    Pleased with both scanning and printing, both in quality and performance. Although i’d upgraded from the cheapest inkjet i could find a few years back l-)one point, it’s very heavy, something to remember when planning its installation.

      1. Plasticy and cheap feeling, but 2 months in, it seems to be doing the job. Had an issue in that it doesn’t wake from sleep mode on a mac, but i was able to work round it by addressing the printer using ip rather than bonjour. The whole house is printing to it through both cat5 and wifi. It’s not the fastest printer, and particularly scanning is slow, but that’s what you get for the price.

    1. A largish machine for which you need sufficient desk space but software easy to load and does its tasks well. Arrived immediately and very well packed.

Copying is clear and even the colour copies, although not photographic standard, are respectable. Recommended provided you have the space.

    1. Great piece of kit works very well. Great piece of kit works very well. It is very large and heavy great for office use as i am using this product for so size and weight didn’t apply to me. The print quality is outstanding when printing direct from the computer which gives a finer print compared to the direct print using the scanner however they both work very well. This also comes with a set of ink installed in the printer which was very handy. Overall this product is must if looking for good quality printing and also good printing speed. Picture quality is great when printing pictures and also word documents are very fine high quality with no word smudges.

    Solid printer for the money. I’ll start this by saying we are using this on a mac, this means the scanning software is really quite pathetic, however as we don’t use this it’s not a concern. The setup is really easy, it’s reliable, not to expensive to run. It’s a goo solid home colour laser for the money. I say ‘home’ as it’s a bit slow on the pages per minute and you wouldn’t want to be be printing any large documents too often.

    Excellent printer, excellent quality. I have always had hp printers for their quality and this is no exception. I was upgrading from a second-hand colour laser which had been used with refill toner and leaked all over, something i would never do personally. I had given up on inkjets because i do not print often enough to keep the ink from drying up or going off. This printer may be expensive to buy initially in comparison, with expensive toner to replace, but for the quality and reliability its good value. The new toners also have a higher wax content than older ones which means they smell less of ozone when you use them and have a much nicer shiny quality to the prints. Photos come out excellent, not photo quality like inkjets on fancy paper, but far better than inkjets on plain cheap paper. This something often forgotten about cost per page, you have to factor in the cost of the paper which when wanting to print photos on an inkjet you need to use expensive paper for it to come out well. Overall, i am very pleased with this printer. It performs exactly as i had hoped.
