The HP LaserJet Pro M15w is a very small but fast mono laser printer
HP has today launched the LaserJet Pro M15w, the successor to the M12w we first saw in 2016. With a maximum dimensions of 346 x 348 x 280mm and weighing 3.8kg, the diminutive M15w is said to be the smallest mono laser printer in its class.
Capable of a 19 page-per-minute (ppm) print speed and a top print resolution of 600 x 600 dpi, the printer is also equipped with a 150-sheet paper input tray and a 100-sheet output tray. Designed to be a personal printer, it comes with a USB 2.0 port and has built-in support for 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. It supports Wi-Fi Direct too (so you don’t really need a wireless access point), as well as mobile printing, and plays nice with protocols and services such as Apple AirPrint, Mopria, and Google Cloud Print. While the printer doesn't have a built-in scanner, you can scan from your smartphone and print it through the HP Smart mobile app.
The HP LaserJet Pro M15w has a sticker price of S$119, and comes bundled with a black toner cartridge capable of 500 prints (off-the-shelf replacement cartridges have a 1000-page yield). It will be available in stores starting August 1.
For those who need an all-in-one printer, HP is also making a LaserJet Pro M28w that sports additional scan and copy capabilities. Other than the extra flatbed scanner (1,200 dpi optical scan resolution), it shares the same features as the single-function M15w. And finally, if you value the AIO functions but don't need the wireless and mobile printing features, there's the USB-only LaserJet Pro M28a.
The LaserJet Pro M28w and M28a are priced at S$189 and S$169 respectively, and they too will go on sale in August.
