HP LaserJet printers make it easy to get quality printing while saving your company money on energy costs and materials. With HP's Instant-on Technology, you'll get the first page faster when a printer is coming out of low power mode, so your print job is done sooner.1 Learn how some HP LaserJets can even pay you back while reducing your print times.

Print faster with Instant-on Technology

Instant-on Technology, available on the HP LaserJet Pro 400 Printer M401dn, prints the first page in as fast as 8 seconds from power-save mode!
Instant-on Technology, available exclusively on HP LaserJet printers and multifunction machines, works to eliminate idle time waiting by the printer.
Instant-on Technology uses cutting-edge fuser technology to produce the first page faster when a printer is coming out of low power mode, so your print job is done sooner.1
Time To Completion
And it's not just the first page that is faster. The Time To Completion (TTC) of a typical office print job can be nearly three times faster than competitors when coming out of low power mode.2
For example, with the HP LaserJet Pro 400 Printer M401dn, the first page out is as fast as 8 seconds from power-save mode!

Reduce energy consumption

Energy Star
Using the ENERGY STAR® program's Typical Electricity Consumption method, tests show HP LaserJet printers with Instant-on Technology save up to 50% on energy over competitors.3
Coworkers talking and working
Having a printer that will instantly turn on and start printing when you need to use it can make your office more productive.
With all there is to manage in a large office, remembering to turn off your printer may be the least of your worries. However, leaving office printers on at night, and during weekends and holidays, increases your energy bill and contributes to greenhouse gases.
With Instant-on Technology, though, your business can save in many ways:
Reduce power consumption
Using the ENERGY STAR® program's Typical Electricity Consumption method, tests show HP LaserJet printers with Instant-on Technology save up to 50% on energy over competitors.3
*Since 1993, Instant-on Technology has helped prevent nearly 3.5 million tons of CO2 emissions—the equivalent of a year's worth of emissions for nearly 680,000 cars!4
Increase efficiency
Instant-on Technology saves the trouble of coordinating staff to shut off your office's printers at the end of the day.
Boost productivity
Your printer will not only shut down when you're not using it, but it will instantly turn on and start printing when you do, which means less wait-time between prints jobs.

Increase efficiency in the workplace

a busy office
The wireless capabilities of HP LaserJets allow many users to share just one printer—a major cost savings.
Time is money—now you'll have more of both!
Save energy with faster printing times
The faster your machine prints, the faster your printer powers off and stops consuming electricity.
One machine, multiple uses
Why buy and maintain three machines when you can run one? With an HP All-in-One or multifunction printer, like the HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf, you can print, scan, copy, or fax with the same machine—saving space and money.
Share printers across entire staff
With wireless capabilities, many users can share just one printer.
Add a new computer or printer in minutes
With HP Smart Install, you can connect new computers to printers—and vice versa—with only a few clicks! No software CD or tedious downloads required.5 Learn more about HP Smart Install.
