HP’s entry-level Enterprise-class printer with speeds up to 42 ppm[8] and strongest security.[1]
Workteams excel with HP’s black-and-white office LaserJet printers, which pack extra punch with high-quality results, extra power, and more features.
This printer is intended to work only with cartridges that have a new or reused HP chip, and it uses dynamic security measures to block cartridges using a non-HP chip. Periodic firmware updates will maintain the effectiveness of these measures and block cartridges that previously worked. A reused HP chip enables the use of reused, remanufactured, and refilled cartridges. More at:

Easy to use, simple to manage

HP FutureSmart firmware can be updated with the latest features[2] to optimize your investment for years to come. Centralize control of your printing environment with HP Web Jetadmin—and help build business efficiency.[3] Easily enable workflows across your fleet with a consistent user experience and intuitive, tablet-like icons. Set up this printer fast, and easily manage device settings to help increase efficiency.

The world’s most secure printing[1] 

The operating code (BIOS) is automatically checked during startup and repairs itself if compromised. Common Criteria certified[4] to continually monitor memory activity to detect and stop attacks in real time. Firmware is automatically checked during startup to determine if it’s authentic code—digitally signed by HP. The printer’s outgoing network connections are inspected to stop suspicious requests and thwart malware.

Enhanced productivity to empower work teams

Give workgroups what they need to succeed with hundreds of HP and third-party solutions and card reader support. Help ensure the security of confidential information with PIN/Pull printing to retrieve print jobs. Stay connected with an optional accessory for wireless,[6] Bluetooth® Low Energy, and NFC touch-to-print. Print directly from the 2.7-inch (6.9 cm) color display.

Sustainability is smart business

Help save paper right out of the box. Two-sided (duplex) printing is set at default for automatic savings.[7] Help reduce wasted paper and toner by only printing jobs that are truly needed, using HP Secure Print.[8] Save energy without sacrificing performance—this printer is ENERGY STAR® and Blue Angel certified. Remove barriers and help meet compliance and accessibility standards with the HP Accessibility Kit (which includes Braille overlay and tactile adhesives, an HP Access Handle, and BigKeys LX Keyboard) and compatibility with HP Accessibility Assistant.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Acct office from difficulty setting up printer This printer is incredibly difficult to set up. It goes through the drivers and setup but will not print. Used the tools to troubleshoot, spoke to support and it took forever to fix the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronald Remmel from HP Laser M406dn printer works just great! I am a scientist and writer. I use my HP printers to produce statistical graphs and drawings using the GL/2 graphics language, as well as scans, photographs, and .pdf and .odt documents and books for publishing, newspaper articles, and email blogs. Often I run off dozens of double-sided articles for mass mailings. I also use my M406dn to print out interesting newspaper articles. For 20 years I have used HP printers in my engineering business and my writing. The M406dn is by far the fastest, best one so far!
