HP TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 - Scanning the Third Dimension
19 March 2012
Excerpt: HP's TopShot LaserJet Pro M275 is a color laser multifunction printer that handles its scanning function very differently from other MFPs out there; it literally employs a digital camera to capture the items. This makes it useful for 'scanning' 3D objects too. So is it any good? Let's find out.
Pros: Good 3D object scanning results, Web-connected features (ePrint, print apps), Sharp text quality
Cons: Slow color printing speed, No fax function; no ADF, Fairly expensive for a 3-in-1 MFP
Conclusion: HP is an endlessly experimental company and the M275 will certainly prove an interesting prospect for the curious. However, we suspect the 3D feature will remain a short-term fad for many users – with eBay sellers perhaps being an exception. Take out the 3D feature and you have a proficient but not outstanding printer for the business and/or home office.
Pros: Unique 3D capabilities; compact and well built printer; plenty of connectivity options; smart Install
Cons: Can only hold 50 sheets of paper; Colour isn’t great; high running costs
