The HP M477 printer is now discontinued. Get a brand new replacement HP M479 printer from Printerbase.
The HP M477 is a top printer; it’s consistently scored highly in customer reviews and has been commended for its reliability and swift, no-nonsense printing.
For the perfect marriage of quality and speed, this printer was our go-to. The technology needed a little updating though, and so did the design. So HP has taken what was great about the HP M477 and channelled it into a very modern piece of engineering: the HP M479.
This brand new printer takes everything we loved about the original and ever-so discreetly upgrades it. No mechanism is wasted in this carefully built replacement model, and HP has excelled once again.
So, the question is, should you upgrade?
Smart technology used simply
The HP M479 is an impressive piece of smart technology. The scan (or email) to print function is quick and simple to use and is clearly designed with a complex workflow in mind.
HP makes it easy to save frequently used settings, and allows the automation of workflow for staff who print several things in the same way. Feedback from teams who have heavy printing jobs is positive already in this area, with customers reporting just how easy this printer is to use.
The Wi-Fi works flawlessly, and here the HP Laserjet Pro M479 really is a step up, connecting quickly and painlessly, and enabling printing through the cloud.
Plus, you have 4 options with this machine as follows:
- – M479dw – duplex and wireless functionality
- – M479fnw – fax, network, and wireless functionality
- – M479fdn – fax, duplex, and network functionality
- – M479fdw – fax, duplex, and wireless functionality
Sustainability is key for HP M479
With this model, HP shows it is a head and shoulders above the competition. They have listened to customers complain about how frustrating reprints and wasted printing-budgets can be and upgraded this model with this in mind.
Best in class for eco-friendliness, this printer automatically sets duplex printing as default, so your team doesn’t unwittingly use more paper than they need to. The 18% less energy waste is also a bold claim; and it stacks up, with the HP M479 showing up as the most efficient model yet from HP.
High-speed, but low-cost
HP printers are renowned for providing cost-effective and reliable solutions for busy businesses, and this model is no exception. The HP M479 runs at an excellent 27 pages per minute, which is astounding, considering the print quality that it provides.
Its input capacity goes all the way up to 850 sheets, which is itself a step-up, and welcome practicality for a fast-working office. Likewise, the cartridge yield shows HP values its customers, with an impressive maximum yield of 7,500 pages (black). This all adds up to fewer cartridge costs, smaller paper costs and a fast printing service: what’s not to love?
Going the extra mile
As we have come to expect from HP, set-up is a swift and easy business, which is always appreciated in a hectic office. In addition, HP has included several bonus features in the HP M479, most notably the security system which capitalises on the popular pin-entry system and offers an instant warning of potential security and data attacks.
