HP’s Color LaserJet Pro MFP M180nw – Excellent All the Way Around
Good output quality. Reasonably fast. Small and light. Strong mobile connectivity. Low price.
No automatic document feeder. No automatic two-sided printing. High cost per page.
The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M180nw is an entry-level color laser AIO that prints well and at a reasonable clip, but large-volume offices should note its high cost of consumables.
The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M18s0nw ($299.99) is one of the smallest and least-expensive entry-level color laser all-in-one (AIO) printers we’ve recently seen. It’s a little bit slower than our current Editors’ Choice, the somewhat more expensive Canon Color imageClass MF634Cdw, and it prints as well, but the lack of an automatic document feeder (ADF) for sending multipage documents to the scanner, as well as a lofty per-page cost of consumables, should give pause to high-volume offices. Even so, its small footprint, strong print speed, and good output quality make it more than suitable as a personal color laser AIO for churning out low-volume prints and copies in a home-based business, or even a micro office or workgroup.
