HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401n
19 August 2012
Conclusion: The HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401n monochrome laser printer is a good fit for micro and small offices that don't need duplex printing but need high-quality output and good paper handling otherwise.
Pros: High quality text. Ethernet. Total 300-sheet capacity standard with 50-sheet multipurpose tray. 800-sheet maximum.
Summary: The $399 HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw bundles all of HP's latest technologies into a tight package, but the 3.5-inch touch-screen display doesn't offer enough unique features to warrant the price jump to $400, especially compared with competing devices. Small businesses and home offices shopping for a reliable monochrome laser printer for quick prints should ignore the HP LaserJet M401dw's inflated price tag and look for a better deal.
Pros: The HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw's direct USB port, wireless connectivity, and remote printing features offer a variety of ways to interact with the printer.
Cons: HP Smart Install only works with Windows, and the flimsy touch-screen display impedes usability.
Conclusion: All in all, if HP Laser Jet Pro 400 M401n printer included a duplexer, offered a lower running cost, or both, it would be a compelling choice. As it is, if you need duplexing, you should obviously be looking at the M401dn instead. But if you don`t need to duplex and need high-quality output, the M401n is a highly lucrative choice!
Pros: On its positive end, you will appreciate the high quality text, total 300-sheet capacity standard with 50-sheet multipurpose tray!
