HP Color LaserJet Pro M177fw review: Great output, but little else
24 January 2014
Summary: This color laser multifunction printer offers the usual compromises for this bargain price range: slow performance, minimal features, and high toner costs. If you don't print much then you might not mind all of this. Otherwise, a like-priced business inkjet model would be a much better deal—or spending $500 or more for a color-laser model with better attributes.
Pros: Impressive print quality, Easy-to-use touchscreen control panel
Cons: Slow performance, Meager paper handling and no duplexing, Expensive toner
Excerpt: The M177fw is an odd device. In some ways it’s an absolute bargain, providing a versatile multifunction colour laser printer at a price of just £274. That’s well within the reach of small businesses and home workers who need laser-quality output for their office documents.
