HP Colour LaserJet Pro MFP M281FDW All-in-One Printer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 185.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality machine Bought this printer as a replacement for a desk jet all-in-one printer. Was surprised to see a machine still offering a fax facility as I thought everyone used email these days. That said, I haven’t set up the fax facility although the rest of the set up was relatively easy. Was surprised that the initial set up instructions, steps 1 &2, were unclear whereas the rest of the instructions were clear and easy to understand. Impressed by the speed of the printer but have been advised that the running costs are quite high as HP dominates the market. That said compared with other suppliers at least I can get supplies for this printer in the UK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and prints but needs bigger screen Reasonably easy to set up, but could be more information provided for initial installation and options. Very convenient to print direct from iPhone and iPad. Both print and photo copy quality is excellent, sharp, clear and good colour for a laser printer. The screen could be bigger as it is a a bit fiddly to navigate with larger fingers. Good looking unit and blends in well with an office environment. Would recommend as a great alternative to the Canon bubble jet printer I had previously, which after a few years had printer head problems and the notorious not printing BLACK issue. Am looking forward to printing a few photos to see quality and comparison against bubble jet prints.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Basically good but gave loads of trouble 1. Liquid crystal display did not function fully all time. 2. Had huge pdf printing problems - turned out the correct drivers don't install from the website. Didn't find out until 2 weeks or more later when HP's technical support found out and corrected this. 3. Scanning kept freezing as well. To be fair, HP's very good technical support sorted the printing and scanning problems but it shouldn't take so much time and work to get a brand new machine up and running. Didn't have any of this problem with the previous LaserJet 10 - 15 years ago. 4. Doesn't seem to be any facility for making print denser or darker so far as printing computer file copies are concerned. 5. Scanning is misaligned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer I have been previously using similar printer (M277dw) and I have been satisfied with that. Wireless printing from PC, iMac, iPad, iPhone all have been working very easily. Based on my positive experiences, I decided to buy also an HP printer, but a new model (M281fdw). Installation of the new printer was really easy and painless. All functions seem to work as expected. Printing quality is very good. The negative thing is that replacing laser color ink cartridges is really expensive: buying all four cartridges costs double the price of a new printer (!) with half-filled cartridges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A quality product This replaces an all-in-one inkjet which was noisy, wasteful of ink due to the excessive preparation and cleaning cycles, and so unnecessarily expensuve to run. By contrast this colour laserjet is quiet and on first impression looks and feels to be a much better built and more efficient printer. In short a quality product. Setting up was relatively straightforward via the web (as recommended) rather than from the disc. My only gripe - hence only 4 stars - is that the instuction manual has to be downloaded and printed from the web rather than provided in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value laser printer OK, early days as I only just got this and haven't used it much. That said, it's really very easy and simple to set up, in fact it pretty much does it all by itself. I have mine connected via ethernet so printing from the networked Macs and PCs is no problem at all. Have also air printed from Android phone, iPad and MacBook Pro, again very simple and no problems. Copier, scanner and fax all fine. Print quality is very good, speed isn't blazingly fast but it is quite acceptable, build quality seems good. Very happy with it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value and Quality This laser printer is ideally suited for use in a small or home office, or just for the individual requiring better quality and more functionality than that provided by the usual and cheaper inkjet printers. Set up was intuitive and straightforward. The "out of the box" print quality is excellent, even on the most basic of paper, with charts, pictures, photographs and text faithfully reproduced. Scanning and copying is quick with first class results. This is a great printer for the price and is thoroughly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up and good quality print We replaced our inkjet printer since it had its time. I originally choose a cheaper printer and my partner asked me to switch and it was worth it! It was very easy to set up, the prints are coming fast and in good quality. Also I appreciate that we now can use all the various print functionalities like double page which we couldn't with our old printer. My only complain is the weight of the machine, its a 2 men job to lift in to place and the price of the toners is very high. But overall happy we chose this printer.
