The HP LaserJet Pro 200 features four different interfaces using which a user can connect to the MFP. A high-speed USB 2.0 port featured on the front can be used for printing or scanning from and to the MFP. A USB interface on the rear can be connected to the PC for print, scan or fax features. The device can also be connected to the network via the Ethernet cable or using a wireless router. Given an Internet connection, the user can print documents from the web, scan and save documents to an online storage, and even send print commands remotely by simply sending an email to the printer’s email address. Tablet and smartphone users too can print using the printer by directly connecting to it using the Wi-Fi network without the need of any router.

We tested the printer using conventional everyday documents to test the speed and print quality of the printer. The test documents included standard text and combination of text and photos to represent a letter or presentation document respectively. Regular printing of black or colour documents can be obtained at speeds of 12 pages per minute. Copier modes gave us a single black text copy in 18 seconds while a colour document copy came out in 24 seconds. The printer starts up from a cold boot in 45 seconds and the first page can be availed in 18 seconds from standby. We also tested the scanner’s ADF copy speeds using 10-page text and colour documents, which resulted in 62 seconds and 78 seconds respectively. Scanning a 10-page colour document to a PDF file on the PC takes around 95 seconds. Lastly, the flatbed scanner can scan A4-sized photos with 300 dpi resolution in 10 seconds.

The quality of the prints was impressive, except for the copier-mode colour printing. We found the prints very smudgy and lacking sharpness while copying colour documents. Regular text and colour prints are sharp and crisp. Draft mode prints were readable enough and we could make out the toner saving mode in the printed images as the dotted print texture was clearly visible. Best mode printing results in great imaging on the paper with very crisp and clear prints. The quality of the scanned images is also average.
The HP LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw printer is an average colour laser printer for small to medium-sized businesses or offices. The toner and power saving features can help reduce the cost factor to an extent. It would have been even better if the MFP featured an automatic duplexing unit in order to save on paper costs or manual time in turning over the pages for double-side printing. The MFP is a good choice for an all-in-one laser category imaging peripheral for any office. The price tag of Rs 56,199 might seem a bit too high as an initial investment, but in the longer run, the cost per page will definitely be appreciated. What would also add to the savings is the power-saving feature of the printer. We would recommend this printer for large offices with heavy print volumes.
