Professional printing from an HP Color LaserJet Pro
In today’s fast-paced world, you can’t afford to waste time standing around while your print job moves like a snail.
Fortunately, you won’t run into that problem with the HP Color LaserJet Pro M452dn.
This is a fast, high-performance piece of equipment that’s more than capable of handling a variety of tasks.
When it comes to printing, speed is the name of the game and the HP M452dn gets the gold medal every time.
What makes it so fast? Start-up speeds and two-sided printing capabilities. Gone are the days of flipping over pages and feeding them back into the printer thanks to this exceptional machine.
Burn through multiple documents at a time. Whether you use this printer for the office or at home, it’s sure to increase the available work hours in your day.
Toner cartridges can burn up fast in other printers, but not in this one. Like many HP printers, the HP M452dn uses HP Original High Yield Toner cartridges in black, magenta, yellow, and cyan with JetIntelligence.
Considering how sophisticated this toner is, you can rest assured that you’re getting the most out of every cartridge. You can count on not only efficient performance from your toner, but high speeds as well.
With the HP ColorSphere 3 toner, expect your printer to produce pages upon pages of content at blinding speeds. Be sure to check out the other HP LaserJet Pro Color Printers to make sure you get everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
Security you can count on
Cybercrime is a booming business and new ways of breaking into networks are being developed every day.
If maintaining the security of your printer is important to you, then the HP Color LaserJet Pro M452nw is perfect for you.
The elite device comes fully loaded with a myriad of sophisticated security measures like HP JetAdvantage Private Print, a feature that keeps your information protected from outside attacks.
From the moment you boot up to the moment you shut down, know that the HP M452dn’s built-in security measures will safeguard against even the most complex of threats.
Print from anywhere with ease and security
One of the major advantages that this printer provides is the ability to print remotely from wherever you happen to be.
With just a few easy steps, you can connect smartphones and tablets to your printer.
Using NFC-enabled mobile devices, printing on-the-go from anywhere will be as easy as the tap of a touch screen.
Concerned with security when printing from an unsecure device?
The HP M452dn allows you to print without connecting to your home or company network to protect from hackers breaking in through your mobile device. Additionally, if your wireless network goes down, you can still print without connecting to WiFi.
Connecting your printer to a network isn’t a problem either. The troubleshooting process for connecting your printer is incredibly easy, and if you run into any problems, our support staff is standing by to assist you with anything that comes up.
Streamline your business practices and print at lightning speeds with the highly sophisticated HP Color LaserJet Pro M452dn.

*SpencerLab Sept 2021 study of printer inks sold in North America commissioned by HP for on-average performance of 16 brands of non-HP refill, remanufactured, and imitation cartridges vs. Original HP Ink SKUs 952XL, 63XL, 902XL, 950XL, 951XL. To account for reliability-driven supplies issues, defective and failed cartridges were included in the page yield calculations. Consequently, the reported page yield numbers are not based on ISO/IEC 24711 standard methodology, as it requires defective supplies be excluded from page yield calculation.
