Customer ratings and reviews for HP LaserJet Pro 200 color Printer M251nw

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laser pro 200 Absolutely love it! Very satisfied! January 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This printer does everything I need it to do. It prints in color, wireless, and on demand. I have only had it up and going for a month now but so far so good. I also use this same model in a couple places in the workforce and have not had a problem in the year they have been on the floor. Toner is costly but considering my usage, I don't look at buying toner more than once a year, making it a good buy. But I have the luxury of color capability in a laserjet printer when I need it. Otherwise to conserve, I can print in grey scale or black and white. Again, this unit is wireless so I have it set up in an area neutral for all those in the house that need to access it. Considering this is a unit produced for primarily for business use, hopefully HP will continue to make toner cartridges for it later down the road. Hopefully I can get years of service out of it. January 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid Color Laser Value Priced The HP LaserJet Pro 200 is a solid wireless laser printer. Pros: 1) Excellent quality printouts 2) Fast printouts--14 ppm 3) Easy wireless setup 4) Great 3-1/2" touchscreen Cons: 1) Does not do automatic duplex (double sided). (Other HP printers at this price point do duplex!) 2) Slow printouts when copying Internet pages (Nearly 1-1/2 minutes for first page.) 3) Starter toners only do about 800 pages Overall the HP LaserJet Pro 200 is a great printer providing you do not need duplex printing or need fast speeds for Internet printouts. It's a solid printer that does a great job. January 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Almost All I could Want, and Even More I Don't This is my first Laser Printer EVER (and a Color Laser Printer at that!) after 17 years of computing with Inkjet Printers. (I still have one and intend to keep using it.) The only thing I could desire that this printer doesn't have is Duplex Printing, but the way HP designed it Manual Duplex Printing couldn't be any easier -- plus the Driver Software has a feature enabling manual duplex printing of multipage documents easily. I also like the compact size and shape. It looks a bit lightweight for business purposes, but for my occasional use it couldn't be better. I have just about no use for other attractive features like Wireless Printing, Network-Enabled Printing or Web Printing (a simple USB connection is fine for me), but the reader might find them far more desirable. The color touchscreen is pretty and replaces a lot of controls (although the touchscreen is finicky), but I prefer an elaborate display on my monitor allowing precise and detailed control from my computer. The front-panel USB port for walk-up printing is designed to accept a thumb drive and will probably not recognize your camera or even a flash-card reader just because it has a USB connection, so unless you want to transcribe your printing to a thumb drive you may not want to use this port any more than I will; I prefer the control my computer gives me over my output anyway. But a full-page print of a 16MP digital photo comes out looking magazine-ready, even on plain paper, and that's what counts with me. This printer installed its own driver software as soon as I plugged it in and booted up. The included CDROM proved completely unneeded. That's a first for me, though it's probably the Way of the Future. December 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Satisfied My old HP laser color printer finally got pretty sick after 7 years, so I decided to replace it rather than have it repaired. It was due for three new toner cartridges; hence not buying them almost paid for the Pro 200. I immediately set about printing 150 Christmas cards with lots of color, and it did a rapid, great job, Very pleased November 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! This is a great home printer. It was very easy to set up and easy to use. It also prints very quickly! October 17, 2013
