Rated 1 out of 5 by sysadmin99 from Avoid for SMB or Enterprise Pass on this for any type of business environment. Printer is artificially disabled unless running HP smart software to connect to the internet register an account and then pushes Instant Ink subscription. From a systems administration standpoint this unacceptable. You will find this out the hard way when setting the printer up like a typical HP printer with IP, etc. Only to discover after a few prints the print ceases to function until you download, install, and run the HP Smart software. Also, if you change the PIN (as you would in a centralized business environment) the HP "smart" software looses it's mind and doesn't recognize anything but numerals. The Brand should be avoided in general if HP does this with all it's network\Wi-Fi printers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by A Miner from Not for Education/ Enterprise use. No stand alone drivers available for Print Server deployment. Not for Enterpise or K-12 use! Requires an account to be setup to even download the drivers. This Printer cannot be used for deployment in a Enterprise environment. I was unable to download the stand alone drivers to setup for deployment to a school district. The HP Smart app is required to download but we blocked access to the Store apps in our network. Printer will not work if the setup is incomplete which requires registration of the printer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GeDe from Partially-functioning printer, without HP subscriptions Printer works - partially. HP requires extensive personal information for creation of an account. For laser printers, this enrollment includes opting in to toner subscriptions. The process is cannot be skipped while setting up the printer. This program is a cash-grab by HP, and their printers are rendered partially functional without it. I will be returning this and opting for a another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Simulator Man from HP Perfect! Absolutely, positively just what I needed for my home. A nice small foot print, I already had a table that it fits on perfectly. I used a USB cable to connect the printer to my desktop. I was up and printing right out of the box. All is well thus far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BED JR from HP Laser Jet MFP M234dw WiFi Printer I received the printer 6/17/22 and set it up and began using it about a week later. I also had enrolled in HP Instant Ink. The printer prints and copies very well and the printed documents are of high quality. I received an ink cartridge as part of the purchase offer but have not yet used it. The printer is of high quality, has a sleek and modern appearance, and functions very well. I hope to use it for many years in my home office environment. The WiFi connection to the printer is very reliable is automatically maintained. As a retired chemical engineer, I would highly recommend this printer to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tidewater Techs from Worst Experience Ever This new line of HP+ printers is not to be used for any type of office or multi user printing. The setup takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes for the first time and if setup is incomplete, the printer just stops working after a few pages are printed. Each additional printer takes anywhere from 5-10 minutes to setup. We had to perform the initial setup 4 times to finally get the printer to say it was "setup". Stay away from this sort of printer line. Get anything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TB from CT from DO NOT BUY!! Better off buying a brick! MUST create online account to download and install drivers. This function was blocked on our corporate network. Had to connect with a MIFI to connect and create a phony account just to obtain drivers for a local USB connected Mac, then turned off MIFI so printer cannot talk to HP. The 2nd HP printer (M234dw) would not install drivers on our print server, no version of old or new drivers worked, - nothing. Never had issues in past networking HP printers - always very solid. Now I just purchased a brick and have to go thru aggravation sending it back. Canon and Savin will be top of list for future purchases. All this aggravation so HP can track client activity on their printers, IMHO is none of HP's business!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by SK11 from Didn't last 1 year Bought it last October to replace another HP laserjet whose duplex stopped working. By March the printer had persistent 49 error code even if used offline. After my previous HP, I bought the care pack. It was needed. Disappointed with HP quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GaryFromDC from HP Should Improve Thank you for keeping the negative reviews. After reading them and realized App is REQUIRED and internet access is also REQUIRED, as a long time HP laser lover (owned quite a few), I decided not to go with HP this time. Please listen to feedbacks, they do matter and they can drive away paying customers. I'll return when such requirements are optional. Again, thanks for keeping the negative reviews, which indeed give hope. I'll check back in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cooke from Great monochrome printer The printer itself works great! It truly prints very fast. It holds legal sized paper nicely. The scanning capabilities are a great addition. It does drop service sometimes and I have to reconnect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Albie in Tampa from HP Laser Jet MFP a Winner After a great 20 year run with my HP Laser Jet IIID, I turned to another HP Laser Jet to provide me with the clarity you only get from a Laser printer. I've had it 3 months now and it is working perfectly. It's actually faster to print and quieter than my previous HP and that was a nice surprise. The double sided printing is working flawlessly as well and that is a great paper saver. So far, excellent!

Rated 1 out of 5 by NotSoHappyCamper from Can't give a zero This printer was purchased so I could network print. I cannot complete the set up unless I download an app and create an HP account. This is ridiculous that to spend money on a device that then requires you to set up an account so the printer can send information back to HP and there is no option to decline. Will be returning and purchasing from Canon now that a similar device is in stock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Exasperated Customer from This is the last HP product I will ever buy Straight out of the box, I was required to download an app in order to set up the printer. I have set up numerous Wi-Fi enabled printers using the interface provided on the printer itself and introducing an obligatory app is needless cruft. Then the app requires that I share my location with HP. Why I need to share my location to make copies is beyond me. Then the app informs me that the printer’s firmware needs to be updated. Which it tries to do. And fails. Even though the app is named “HP Smart” it is very dumb because it cannot handle software updates. So now the printer must be plugged into a computer to be updated. If anyone at HP is reading this, is it too much to ask that a brand new printer should work flawlessly out of the box? Considering that there are other brands of printers available, I should be over the moon with my purchase. Instead I’m filled with regret and remorse.

Can you print from a thumb drive?

Asked by: rondao
Hello. Thanks for your question. This HP LaserJet MFP M234dw Printer does not have a USB host port that would allow you to print from a USB thumb drive. I recommend looking at the HP LaserJet Pro MFP 4101fdwe Printer, this printer has a USB host or Walk Up port that would allow you to print from a USB flash drive.
