With full color printing, scanning, copying, and faxing as well as built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, the M177fw LaserJet Pro All-in-One Color Laser Printer from HP is designed to dramatically boost the productivity of your home or small office. With a print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi and speeds of 17 ppm in black and 4 ppm in color, the M177fw can quickly create crisp documents. The printer is hinged in two places in its center, allowing access, respectively, to the scanner platen and the toner cartridges. The toner access hinge is the lower of the two...
This model supports Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB connections, which will give you a fair amount of flexibility. Both of the physical interfaces are on the back of the chassis, as you can see here, on the right side when facing the printer's rear. Also on the back are two phone-line jacks for the M177fw's fax function (which we did not test). We had no issues setting up a Wi-Fi connection. Keep in mind that you won’t be able to use HP ePrint to print via an e-mail attachment if you use the USB option exclusively, because a USB cable can’t supply an Internet connection. In that vein, the M177fw is compatible with not just the HP ePrint app but also Apple's AirPrint. For that reason, it could be a good pick for mobile printing, as long as your printing needs are modest.
Paper Handling Capacity
The paper input tray can handle only 150 sheets at a time, and the paper output tray will hold only 50. Both are located at the bottom front of the unit. Pair that with the 35-sheet capacity of the document feeder, and it's clear that the M177fw wouldn’t be the best choice for large print or copy jobs. HP's recommendation for monthly page volumes for this model reinforces its “best for small jobs” positioning. HP recommends that the M177fw be used to print 250 to 950 pages a month. That’s roughly 8 to 31 pages a day, on average. Meanwhile, the maximum duty cycle for this model (the most you should print on this printer to avoid undue wear) is 20,000 pages per month, which works out to a maximum of about 666 pages per day.
