Description

The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w is the smallest all-in-one laser printer in its class. Because of its business functions, this printer is especially suitable for office use. For example, scan to e-mail and PDF. Easily make a copy of both sides of an ID card on 1 sheet of paper. Despite the compact design, you can put up to 150 sheets of paper in the printer and there's space for 100 sheets in the output tray. Fold the paper tray in after use, so that the printer takes up even less space on your desk. The toner is pre-installed, so you can get started right away.

"Great printer for homeworking"

Lucas | 2 September 2020

  • Pros:
    Print and scan quality
  • Pros:
    Print and scan speed
  • Pros:
    Small dimensions
  • Pros:
    Easy installation
  • Con:
    Redundant software

I was pleasantly surprised by the MFP M28w.

Packaging and dimensions: The printer was snugly inserted into the packaging. The toner comes inside the printer, but must be temporarily removed during installation. Two different types of power cord were included. The build quality is good. The panel is not touchscreen as some other models, but it should not matter for the purposes of this printer.
The small dimensions of the printer are perhaps one of its greatest qualities and a blessing for those that have limited space.

Installation: Once the printer is in place, installation was fairly easy and all the steps were clearly indicated both in the setup poster and in small notices attached to the printer itself - in short, remove all the colored tapes and coverings from the printer, tray and toner.
Connecting the printer to your network is especially easy (2 button presses) if your router supports WPS, otherwise the connection is done directly through the HP software or through a USB cable (included in the box).
There is a software CD included, but the software can be easily downloaded through the link provided in the manual. The installation was very straightforward and took around 10 minutes for me. Once finished, the printer was ready to go.

Software: A few different (but somewhat redundant) applications were installed in my computer:
- HP LaserJet Software: This is the basic software for configuring and customizing your printer. From there you can set your preferences, look into usage statistics, run diagnostic tools, etc. There is also a button for scanning, which will simply open the HP Scan software, and another button to download an external tool (Readiris Pro for HP) to convert scanned documents into editable documents.
- HP Scan: Standard scanning options are present here (PDF, JPEG, e-mail scanning, basic image editing with contrast and color options, etc.). There is also the possibility of using OCR (Optical Character Recognition, for editable scans), but it is provided by a different company (I.R.I.S.) and requires registration.
- HP Smart - From this application you can also print, scan and configure your printer. HP Smart has a more modern interface.
There appear to be some small differences in the available options within the different applications, but ideally, this should all be condensed into one or two applications. You can ignore one of these (HP LaserJet or HP Smart) and still make full use of the printer without issues.

Printing and scanning: The printer responds very quickly after sending a file to the queue, and the printing itself is fast. In a few seconds you will have the print ready. If you don't fully extend the output bin the sheets will fly off from the printer :-)
The quality of the printing is great, no artifacts are visible unless closely inspecting. The print resolution goes up to 600 dpi (in pure black). HP says that the printing margins are about 2 mm, but I've found it to be closer to 4-5 mm (it probably won't matter unless you go out of your way to cover the edges of the page).
I also have no complaints about the scanning quality and speed. The scanning resolution goes up to 600 ppi.
I've uploaded in the review an image that was printed and scanned using the M28w. The text in the last two cells is not visible after scanning with the default parameters (too faint), but they were visible in the print.

It is worth noting that the printer does not support double printing, thus printing on both sides of the paper must be done by manually turning each sheet after it's printed.

Given the small dimensions and great quality and usability, I think this printer is perfect for homeworking, home use, very small offices and stores, unless you need color printing. If you are in an environment where a larger volume of printing is needed there are probably options with a lower cost per page (the M28w's HP 44a toner has an average capacity of 1000 pages) and less frequent tray reloading (the M28w has a relatively small tray capacity of 150 sheets).
