Follow Up Review: HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477DFW Printer


I have been using my new HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477DFW printer for a month now and I am still loving it!  (My initial review can be found here.) If you are looking for a last minute tech gift that can be used by the whole family, or a little something extra for yourself and your home based business, or small business, then this  printer might be the item you have been searching for.

USB Printing

I love that this printer can print directly from a USB and I used it to print all my custom Christmas cards and gift labels this year. The images and text are crisp, clear and streak free. It was a great way to add a personal touch this holiday season. The printer also produces great double sided reports and documents that I use for my small business and the various committees that I participate in.


For the past couple of weeks I have been playing with the apps that come with the printer as well as others that are available for download directly to the printer. There is stuff for the whole family. The printer comes with the following pre-installed apps under the apps menu:

  • Manage – Where you can manage the apps that you have set up for pre-printing documents daily.
  • Private Print – Where you would log in to print an item that you sent privately to the printer.

The HP Color LaserJet Pro offers so many wonderful features and is easy to use and set up right out of the box. This printer offers so many options for business and/or personal use. It is a great printer and I can’t believe the difference using a good quality printer makes. I will never go back to those cheap $40 printers offered on special.
