The MFP can also print as well as scan to USB pen drives using the USB port located on the front. The control panel features a large and crisp 3.5-inch display (aka Magic Frame by HP). The display is a resistive touchscreen and also features six other touch buttons around it. Together they make up the whole control panel to operate the unit. Once the unit is connected to an Internet-enabled network (either Ethernet or via wireless), you can register yourself and download apps for the printer. These apps range from educational, business, fun, craft, and a lot more, which can be printed directly from the Internet using the printer’s control panel.
You need to register the printer online using its unique code (during configuration) to generate an e-mail ID for the printer. You can then print any document from anywhere in the globe by simply sending the document to the printer by emailing it across. You can also monitor the complete printer’s (the registered printer(s) only) activities using the HP online website. An additional bonus feature included here is the option to wirelessly print from a mobile phone directly without any drivers. The printer features a built-in wireless access point that allows up to five mobile phones or tablets to connect directly to the printer’s open wireless network and print their documents.
We tested the printer for speeds and quality and here is what we have to say. Printing speeds were surprisingly “on-the-dot”. What we meant by this was that the manufacturer has specified the printer's speed to be 33 ppm with A4 sheets and 35 ppm on letter-size sheets, which is completely true. We also printed a 10-page word document in auto-duplex printing mode, and it was printed in just 40 seconds. The scanner also features a duplex (dual-head) scanner for simultaneous dual-sided scanning, and hence we also scanned a 10-page document to PDF format (via the computer using the USB cable), and it was done in just 1 minute and 51 seconds. Copy mode takes about 10 seconds per copy on a single side of an A4 page. The printer starts up is around 48 seconds, and the first print can take just eight seconds.
We analyzed the print quality and found the printer to do a pretty decent job. A grayscale linearization test showed that the printer can print excellent colours and shades of grey with very little or no errors. Resolution tests showed good details and contrasts. The copy mode was a little disappointing, though—we found the copies to be a bit smudged with loss in details.
The LaserJet Pro
The HP LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dw is a great investment for those looking for a feature-rich MFP for a new business environment or those looking for an additional printer for their existing set-up.
