New HP LaserJet 400 Series Printers and MFPs with JetIntellligence for 33-Percent More Prints
On September 10th, Hewlett-Packard introduced its next-generation LaserJet printers and MFPs, the LaserJet Pro 400 Series printers, which use HP’s next-generation JetIntelligence toner cartridges for delivering up to 33 percent more prints.
JetIntelligence for More Prints
HP says that it’s redesigned parts within the new all-in-one JetIntelligence toner cartridges to be smaller, so that more toner – up to 33 percent more – can be contained within the cartridge – and users get more prints. The firm also says JetIntelligence toner cartridges are 8 – 10 percent less expensive than HP predecessors, and are also smaller and more compact. Toner-cartridge parts are also said to be more “robust” for greater durability for less internal wear, delivering better reliability, so that fewer user interventions are required.
The new JetIntelligence toner cartridges also feature:
- New print-gauge technology, which HP says more intelligently predicts toner levels (that are displayed on the printer/MFP’s touch screen).
- New auto-seal removal, as users no longer have to remove a strip from the toner cartridge before installing it. Instead, the toner seal is now inside the toner cartridge, and is automatically removed during installation,
- New “egg-shell carton” plastic containers instead of boxes; all materials are also recyclable.
The new JetIntelligence toner cartridges consist of a 201A series and a 508A series, both available in X high-yield versions.
The HP 201 JetIntelligence series consists of:
- HP 201A black toner cartridge that yields approximately 1,500 pages, while each HP 201A cyan, magenta, and yellow toner cartridge yields approximately 1,400 pages.
- HP 201X high-yield black toner cartridge that yields approximately 2,800 pages, while each HP 201X cyan, magenta, and yellow toner cartridges yields approximately 2,300 pages.
The HP 508 JetIntelligence series consists of:
- HP 508A black toner cartridge that yields approximately 6,000 pages, while each HP 508A cyan, yellow, and magenta toner cartridge yields approximately 5,000 pages.
- HP 508X black toner cartridge that yields approximately 12,500 pages, while each 508X cyan, yellow, and magenta toner cartridge yields approximately 9,5000 pages.
The JetIntelligence toner cartridges also use new HP ColorSphere 3 toner. With ColorSphere 3 toner, tiny toner particles have been re-engineered so that they now consist of a more durable shell and softer wax core. HP says this means they can be fused and melted to paper at a much lower temperature during the imaging process so that less energy is required in order to print, saving on energy costs.
LaserJet Pro 400 Series
According to HP, the new LaserJet 400 series printers and MFPs provide the fastest first-page-out time, fastest two-sided printing, and lowest energy consumption in their class. Built-in security features include job storage with PIN Printing (requires an optional USB flash drive). They’re designed for enterprises of all sizes, but particularly for small and mid-size businesses, and for small work teams with 3-10 users printing up to 4,000 pages a month.
The LaserJet 400 Series consists of:
- The HP LaserJet Pro M402 is a black-and-white printer ideal for compact work spaces and is billed as the smallest and most energy-efficient printer in its class. The HP LaserJet Pro M402 series is expected to be available in October, starting at $269.
- The HP Color LaserJet Pro M452 is color printer with with up to 48-percent faster first-page-out than its predecessor. The HP Color LaserJet Pro M452 series is expected to be available in October, starting at $399.
- The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M426 is a black-and-white MFP with fast, dual-sided scanning as well as scan to email, network folder, USB drive, and cloud capabilities. It also features up to 100-percent faster two-sided printing than its predecessor. The HP LaserJet Pro MFP M426 series is expected to be available in October, starting at $449.
- The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477 provides dual-sided scanning and support for document workflows, including scan to email, network folder, USB drive, and cloud capabilities. HP also says it delivers fast, best-in-class color printing performance with up to 150-percent faster two-sided printing and 46-percent faster first-page-out-time than its predecessor. The HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477 series is expected to be available in October, starting at $529.
The LaserJet 400 series printers support several mobile printing solutions, including wireless direct and Near Field Communication (NFC) touch-to-print, as well as cloud-based pull printing with HP JetAdvantage Private Print.
