Printer Review: LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw

Posted on July 11, 2014 | Posted under LaserJet Pro 400, M401dw, printer review | 0 Comments

The LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw is a printer with a large array of features which would suit office use. Some of the best features of the LaserJet Pro 400 are the direct USB port, wireless connectivity and auto duplexing. It also comes with a 3.5" touchscreen. The touchscreen is a bit flimsy but still adds better functionality than you would get with a button layout. The printer also supports printing through email and Google Cloud Print. 


It is a reasonably good looking printer that, as previously mentioned, features a 3.5" touchscreen. This screen can be swivelled out to view at different angles, but the result is a unstable touchscreen when it is all the way out, making entry of details somewhat frustrating. The rest of the printer has a solid feel about it and it looks comfortable in withstanding the day to day wear and tear that a printer like this would experience. The front has a 250 page input tray and the USB access point is also featured on the front of the printer for ease of use.  It comes in at 11kg with dimensions of 36cm x 36cm x 27cm.


Comparable, the HP LaserJetPro 400 provides quick printing, clocking in at 33 pages per minute. The print quality is mixed. For plain text this mono laser does a good job but for anything more demanding the printer begins to struggle.


The running costs of this printer add a real positive. The cost per black page is $0.05 while the cost per colour page is $0.13. The toner cartridges that are suitable for this printer are the HP 80A and 80X, which we provide as a genuine toner cartridge and a remanufactured toner cartridge.


Overall, this is a quality printer but does come with a hefty price tag in comparison to it's competitors models.
