Laser printer under $100 – HP LaserJet Pro M15w Review

The HP LaserJet Pro M15 wireless printer was successfully built. The body of the printer looks sturdy, but the output tray extender feels a bit on the cheaper side. The toner cartridge is easily accessible simply by lifting the lid; you can also access cartridges when the printer is turned off. You also have easy access to paper jams through the toner compartment just below the output tray. For a printer with better build quality, refer to the Brother HL-L2350DW.
The Hp LaserJet Pro M15w is a very small and compact printer. You should have no problem placing it on your desktop or setting it up in your store.
The HP LaserJet Pro M15 wireless printer has an excellent monochrome cartridge system. The black ink cartridge produces an extremely large number of pages before you have to change the cartridge. However, during our tests, we noticed that after printing 60 full black pages, the printer takes five minutes to cool down. This shouldn’t be a problem for most users. Unfortunately, there is no high-performance toner option for this printer.
This printer accepts third-party toner cartridges; However, its use may invalidate the warranty.HP LaserJet Pro M15w PrinterThe HP LaserJet Pro M15w is a high-quality black and white laser printer. It uses a single black toner cartridge, which has a very high page yield. It doesn’t have a scanner, but the compact size makes it a better choice if you have little space. It only has a decent print speed in general, which is surprising for a laser printer, but if you’re only printing a single page, you’re able to print it very quickly.
The HP LaserJet Pro M15w printer is a mediocre choice for students. It has decent print speed with excellent black page performance, which can be incredibly useful when printing long tests or work bodies. However, it does not have scanners or color printing and does not support Microsoft Office files.
The HP LaserJet Pro M15 wireless printer is a bad option for your home or small office. While its small design makes it easy to mount almost anywhere, it doesn’t have a scanner or color print. You can print an impressive number of pages before you need to change the cartridge, and the design gives you good access to paper jams. Unfortunately, this printer does not include an Ethernet port.
The HP LaserJet Pro M15w is a reasonable black and white laser printer. It’s compact and robust, so it won’t require much space on your desk or store. It has an excellent black page yield and a cost per print, but since the drum unit is integrated into the toner cartridge, the cartridge is more expensive. HP LaserJet Pro M15w PrinterThat said, avoid having to replace the drum unit separately. It has no scanner and is not made to print photos. You can connect it to your computer directly with the cable that comes with the cable or connect with Wi-Fi Direct, but you can’t print from a USB drive or SD card. Photo:HP
