HP LaserJet Guru MFP M277dw -- Design and Features

The printer is largely styled from white, using slate-grey panels on the base of the automated document feeder (ADF) and the output tray. The ADF has a healthy capacity of around 50 sheets, that seems a somewhat odd combination with the main paper tray, that may hold only 150 sheets. I am not sure why producers assume that clients enjoy restocking printer trays when making copies of large documents.

Controlling the unit is achieved via the 76mm touchscreen, which includes a mild, positive texture and supports gestures for scrolling via the menus. The all-in-one provides print, scan, fax and copy, and also USB and wireless device service. Smartphones and tablet computers could be connected with minimal fuss; just tap the device on the printer's NFC emblem, which may be seen on its front panel.

Below the control panel is a USB socket, which may be used for uploading files to publish -- including Word and PowerPoint documents -- and downloading scanned pictures in a huge array of formats.

As well as the major paper tray, there's a single-sheet paper feed for special media, such as letterheads and envelopes. There are USB and Gigabit Ethernet sockets at the back, but wireless connection has become easily the most flexible. As well as connecting to a wireless system, it may link directly to cellular devices and ePrint servers through the internet.

The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw comes with a great suite of support applications, such as IRIS OCR, scan and fax applications and a printing driver. The four cartridges slide out from behind the front panel of this machine and therefore are a very simple drop match.
HP LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw -- Printing Speeds

HP sets the LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw in 18ppm printing both mono and color. In our evaluations, these statistics seem optimistic, together with our five-page mono text evaluation giving 8.8ppm and the color equal giving 8.6ppm. Increasing the page count to 20 pages also upped the speed, to 14.3ppm, although this is still a way short of this promised throughput.

Duplex print, which is standard with this device, came through at 9.2 sides per minute -- which is a fantastic speed, especially for color print. A single-page color copy from the flatbed took 16 seconds plus a five-page mono document took 29 seconds to copy from the ADF, equally exact fair speeds.

Photo prints took between 13 minutes and 1min 23secs. This is a significant spread, with the slower time clear when printing with an Android phone.

HP LaserJet Guru MFP M277dw -- Printing Quality and Costs

We are utilised to seeing some of the ideal laser color images out of HP printers, but in this situation, results were variable. Our typical test photo printed from a PC was rather dark and dropped significant detail. It had been rather grainy, also. Another shot -- obtained out of a USB stick -- was with cleaner breeding. A colour photocopy showed odd tone shifts and registration problems.

It is probably this is a one off problem with this particular unit, because we would expect it to happen to be picked up at quality management if it had been a wider issue.

Utilizing the high-yield variations of the toner cartridges gives page costs of 2.7p for mono printing and 10.4de for colour. These are great figures, compared with most of the competition at this relative low cost. The 239 Brother DCP-9020CDW, for instance, costs 15.2p for a color page and also the Dell C1765nfw, at #242, costs 4.1p to get a mono page and a whopping 18.3p for a colour one.
