The HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw multifunction printer


Smaller offices and businesses considering the CM1415fnw printer, nevertheless, might also want to be aware of exactly what it is lacking in: speed and economy. It really is on the list of slowest products we've examined in recent times, and its toner is quite high priced. In addition, it provides no automatic duplexing, which can make saving on paper expenditures more difficult.

In our trials, the CM1415fnw was in fact disappointingly slow. It has got a habit of calibrating or initialising for minutes on end when all you would like it to do is print. On plain black text, the least difficult type of printing, it labored at a lethargic rate of 7.4 pages per minute with the Pc along with 7.3 ppm with the Mac. Snapshot-size pictures printed on letter-size paper averaged a below par 1.7 ppm using the Pc system, at the same time a full-page, high-resolution picture printed with the Mac needed virtually 80 seconds (0.8 ppm) to print. Scans as well as copies were just as sluggish.

The standard of the CM1415fnw's end product offers you some consolation. Text looks clear as well as accurate. HP touts their ImageREt 3600 technology when it comes to photographs, and yes it would seem to do the job - to an degree. Looked at from typical range, the photographs appeared rich, even if a little bit darker. On more detailed inspection, very fine horizontal banding spoiled a lot of the effect, and a number of the contours on faces ended up being tough to detect. Scanning ended up being a mixed bag: Simple black and white copies looked decent, but a colour copy looked overly bright as well as somewhat uneven. Colour scans coming from the Apple looked richer than those coming from the PC, but on both systems monochrome scans showed jagged lines and decrease in very fine detail.

The build quality of the CM1415fnw has a slightly flimsy feel. The mounting designed for the 150-sheet input tray appears to be insubstantial, however that's the only genuinely worrisome physical element we came across. You get a 50-page automatic document feeder when it comes to the integrated flatbed A4-size scanner along with a 125-sheet output tray. The deficiency of automatic duplexing is certainly dissatisfactory with respect to an office-oriented product. Wireless, Ethernet, as well as USB connectivity are offered. A plus is the 3.5-inch colour Liquid crystal touch screen control panel; the on-screen menu design is actually instinctive as well as simple to browse through, even though a bit congested from time to time.

The cyan, yellow, and magenta HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw printer toner cartridges last for merely 1300 pages each, and the black cartridge will last for simply 2000 pages.

It's hard to come up with perfection in this particular budget range of colour laser multifunctions. The HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw colour MFP offers some head-turning capabilities, however the slow performance as well as expensive toner will be hard to swallow.
