Price-performance ratio

inexpensive

HP’s printing technology JetIntelligence is designed to keep the space requirements as low as possible, reduce energy consumption and bring more pages from a toner filling. When HP Color Laserjet Pro MFC M477fdn succeed, as the test shows. The Color Laser Multifunction Device is a prudent and energy-efficient way to achieve low-cost site pricing, without compromising speed and quality. The new function of job storage brings secure print functions to the smaller work environment. The price / performance ratio is also correct. Bottom line, the HP model puts itself at the top of the PC-WELT top-chart of the color laser multifunctional devices at a fair price thanks to balanced performance.

Per

+ Duplex printing, duplex scan

+ PCL 6, PS-3 emulation

+ Job storage by stick

+ Good energy management

Contra

– no WLAN interface

– a little cumbersome scanner driver

Test report: One advantage of HP JetIntelligence are the newly designed toner cartridges. They are not only narrower than their predecessors, but also filled with new toner, which has a lower melting point. This affects the entire energy management of HPfrom Color Laserjet Pro MFC M477fdn. In the test, the color laser multifunction device quickly switches from the operating mode to standby and then to the idle mode. In the latter case, the meter shows just 0.1 watts before switching it down to 0 watts. This is amazing for an office combiner of this size. No wonder the device is equipped with the Blue Angel and Energy Star logos.

At the same time, the toner cartridges should also deal with the particle distribution on the sheet more intelligently than before, in order to get the optimum out of the contents. In the case of the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFC M477fdn, the filling capacities of the XL toners speak for high throughput. So we arrive at 2.4 cents for the monochrome and 12.6 cents for the colored leaf at the most favorable prices with the highest filling quantities (6500 pages in black and 5,000 pages per color). Also the starter toners with the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFC M477fdn are comparatively generous with 2300 pages for the black and 1200 pages for the colored toners.

Speed – fast, except in scanning

The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFC M477fdn makes a good figure in the speed-ups. Thus, a printed page will last just 12 seconds. Diesel The task from the energy saving mode is done with 18 seconds only a little later. Thanks to single-pass printing and the color printing remains a brisk affair as 12 color pages from Acrobat show in 55 seconds.However, the scanner can not keep the high speed in scanning: we measure 10 seconds for a preview and 13 seconds for a full color scanner in DIN A4 format. These are only average results.

Quality of print, scan and copy

Despite the high working temperature, the results can be seen. So we get texts with filigree letters that remain legible. This also applies when we have activated the toner cartridge mode called HP “EconoMode”. In the case of color prints, the Laserjet model basically produces a rich application and harmonious colors. Color areas also fall homogeneously. In the copy mode, the cover reduces something, which is at the expense of details. This is again the case for background areas. For this we get real 1: 1 copies, which have only a minimal offset at the bottom. The scans are always slightly bright and in the color evaluation slightly red and yellow. With the naked eye we can not necessarily understand. It can be seen, however, that the sharpness in the depth decreases quickly – a common phenomenon in office equipment.

 

Good for office use

The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFC M477fdn provides central office functions for everyday office work. The automatic duplex units are ideal for printing and scanning. The manufacturer has designed the touchscreen very clearly. It can also be folded – that is not self-evident. In addition, the scanning bed is completely flat to the edge. This makes the removal of templates easier and looks fancy.

On LAN interfaces, and find USB for different purposes: A port acts as a local connection to a computer. There is a USB host on the front of the device to store scans on a stick. In addition, the HP model provides another USB port on the back. Here can be another USB flash drive infected to save jobs on it and print it out later. HP has introduced this feature for the first time in this model and calls it “job storage”. It is deactivated at the factory and must be activated only under printing properties. It requires a stick with at least 16 GB memory space. In the printer driver, select how the job should be saved.

Among the variants there is the “Personal Job”, in which the print job is only stored on the stick. Once retrieved from the device, delete it from the control panel. Or the mode “Check and store”: Here, in the case of several copies, one is printed, the rest is kept. To do this, the jobs can be saved with a PIN, which we also assign in the printer driver. To print the job, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFC M477fdn prompts us to enter the PIN before printing. The Job Backup function is intended for printing only. Scans can not be stored and later, as an e-mail, can be redirected, even though the device basically controls this function. The jobs are stored encrypted on the stick. Abuse also protects a stick with a particular printer (Paring). Neither on a different HP model of the series nor on a computer are the stored jobs accessible.
