5 Best HP Laser Printers for Small Business
August 18, 2018
When you’re ready to take your business to the next level with high-speed printing that’s consistently crisp and professional, no product compares to the laser printer.
Out-performing inkjet printers in output and efficiency, a small business laser printer can keep you productive without the overhead and maintenance that many expensive commercial models require. Find out the best office laser printer for your unique business needs in our top printer list.
This print-only model is a budget-friendly option, which puts the competence and volume of a laser printer well within reach of any business owner. It’s also a great addition to any home office suite thanks to its outputs of up to 23 pages per minute and a first-page-out-of-the-printer speed of just under 8 seconds.
You can cut back on energy costs by applying the innovative HP Auto-On/Auto-Off Technology, which makes sure it’s only on when you are using it. And with the easy-to-manage HP ePrint utility, you can print documents from your phone, tablet, or email using dual-band 802.11n wireless networking. Also, the input tray holds up to 150 sheets of standard printer paper, so you’ll have to refill it less often.
It creates vibrant, rich color copies at a rate of up to 22 pages per minute (black or color). Its auto-duplexing print-loading tray houses 250 sheets of paper, which offers twice the production power with the ability to print directly from USB, too.
The interactive touch screen lets you make adjustments to your print jobs, check ink levels, and connect to your existing wireless network without ever accessing your computer. It’s the perfect blend of beautiful and affordable, making it the economical option for creative businesses that need clear color prints without breaking the bank.
And while it offers a variety of functions, it is also one of the best laser printers for small business. This model allows you to print at speeds up to 17 pages per minute, copy any color or black-and-white document, and scan even the most striking photographs with outstanding resolution.
Choose between USB connectivity for fastest speeds, or go wireless with the supported WiFi 802.11 connection. This affordably priced model easily supports teams of up to five people.
It has all the exciting features of the HP M180nw printer but includes the ability to send and receive faxes, too. You can print 22 pages per minute, and the first sheet will be delivered in as little as 10.8 seconds from hitting the print button.
With a best-in-class print time, you can get up to 13 pages per minute in duplex mode, and the 50-page automatic document feeder makes sure your copy, scan, and fax jobs can manage without you. It also has a full 2.7-inch color graphic touch screen, which makes it easier to input your print commands without fumbles or miskeys, too.
The HP Smart app lets you scan, send, and receive documents from anywhere - not just your printer. Just snap a photo with your phone, crop or edit, and send it directly to your device for effortless printing in full-color that jumps right off the page.
For use in commercial settings only (not approved for home use), this laser printer provides a monthly print volume of up to 7,500 pages and can hold up to 1,200 sheets of paper between its three duplexing trays. The 4.3-inch touch screen is among the largest in its class and gives office workers more control of projects.
Print speeds range up to 45 pages per minute (black only), and jobs can be dispatched wirelessly or through one of the following connected network options: Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, Ethernet 10 Base-T/100 Base-Tx/1000 Base T network.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of this affordable, yet fully commercial, model is the security. With industry-disrupting tech designed to detect, protect from, and thwart cyber attacks, even your most sensitive print jobs will be secure. Suspicious print requests will be stopped before they occur, resulting in a system reboot.
Also, any unauthorized firmware upgrades can be prevented automatically. The processes occur without intervention, too, so your IT team can continue doing what they do best, while your printer handles the rest.
Better printing for all
No matter which of these best office printers you select, you can be confident that your toner will go the extra mile.
That’s because our toner cartridges take advantage of HP JetIntelligence technology to use just the right amount of toner for your needs - no more, no less.
Anti-fraud technology ensures that you’ll never pay more for fake toner cartridges, and the high yield cartridges are now capable of providing more printing between replacements, often at a reduced per-page cost.
HP printers also have the added benefit of being ready to go, right out of the box. Printer cartridges come pre-installed, so you can get that first print job started sooner.
The next time you’re looking to upgrade your small business printing solutions, consider these HP models that have been optimized for a variety of industries, office sizes, and security needs.
Whether you need the kind of eye-popping color that HP’s full-color printers can provide or you’re looking for high-volume black-and-white prints on the fly, the right printer can help you do it with incredible professionalism and value.
