Robust, high-speed laser printing from the HP M506n
Whether you’re replacing an older laser printer or upgrading for the first time, the HP LaserJet Enterprise M506n is a powerful single-function printer for businesses that depend on an efficient flow of high-quality documents and prints. It has a top-tier print speed in addition to great paper capacity with optional tray upgrades, making it a competitive solution for anyone looking to increase their output.
For speed, it offers 45 pages per minute, with a blazing fast 5.9-second-first-page-out rating at its full power setting and a better-than-average waking time. It’s no slouch when it comes to paper storage either, thanks to a 550-sheet primary input tray, a 100-sheet multipurpose tray standard, and optional add-on trays that further boost the capacity. Its overall print volume is a recommended monthly range of 2,000 to 7,5000 pages.
You’ll also find automatic duplex printing options available so that you can conveniently switch from single to double-sided prints. Among other things, that’s a great way to save on paper costs. Duplex printing won’t substantially add to your wait time, either.
A high-capacity device may bring some serious capabilities to your workflow, but it doesn’t need to equate to a big sacrifice in terms of space. This printer measures a surprisingly compact 16.46 x 14.80 x 11.73 inches, so it won’t take up much real estate in your office.
Extensive security and manageability features
With the convenience of HP Web Jetadmin, the HP M506n is set up for painless fleet management so you can easily handle installation, configuration, and anything else you may need when overseeing multiple devices. And it’s designed for high security from input to output with great BIOS protection.
Where extras are concerned, you’ll also have some leeway for secure local storage in the form of an optional HP high performance secure hard disk. This compact addition is useful for various situations, whether you’re running an active small business or you’re part of a demanding corporate environment.
Plus, for in-person management and print handling, you can always use HP ePrint for easy mobile printing via any connected and compatible smartphone or tablet.
Original HP toner cartridges with JetIntelligence
We all know the hassle of managing print supplies, but the HP M506n offers a straightforward system with just a single toner cartridge to worry about. For your standard toner supply, it uses an HP 87A black Original LaserJet toner cartridge that offers superb print efficiency thanks to the built-in HP JetIntelligence. It allows for more dynamic printing all around and has an output rating that peaks at roughly 9,000 high-quality, consistent prints.
Want to cut out even more of the cost and hassle out of your typical cartridge herding? You can save cash and print more efficiently with HP’s high-yield cartridge options. For a bigger print yield, simply purchase an HP 87X high yield black Original LaserJet toner cartridge the next time you run out of toner. It can last for up to 18,000 printed pages at a price not much above the standard option, which is also a big advantage when you don’t always have time to stay on top of your toner levels.
Designed for energy efficiency
The HP LaserJet Enterprise M506n is a high-speed and powerful print hub, but it also boasts surprisingly strong energy-efficiency credentials. It ships with the added confidence of ENERGY STAR® approval, recognition from the CECP, and Blue Angel certification.
Thanks to efficiency features like HP JetIntelligence and a streamlined power profile, the HP M506n stands out for its minimal energy consumption. You’ll find less to worry about with your power and supply bills, along with knowing you’ve reduced your environmental impact over the lifetime of the device.
One-year warranty with onsite coverage
Whatever your situation, buying a new laser printer for your office or business is an investment that you want to last for the long haul. With the reassurance of HP’s standard one-year warranty, you’ll get convenient next-business day support and onsite coverage, so there’s no need to worry about slowing down your office’s productivity for too long.
