HP HotSpot LaserJet Pro M1218nfs Review

Estimated Price Rs.18,200

HP LaserJet Pro M1218nfs HotSpot is one of HP products that are quite popular in India with its innovative features. This laser printer features a built-in wireless router to allow users to connect to the printer through a PC, smartphone or tablet. Like the other multifunction printer, these printers provide a scanner, copier and fax machine.

The design seems robust and luxury with the whole black-colored surface. On the left side is a 2.5-inch monochrome LCD display. A scanner with an ADF at the top, while the front features a paper tray. The rear panel features the socket for Ethernet, USB and phone lines.

LaserJet Pro M1218nfs come with resolutions of 600 x 600 dpi, but does not support auto duplex printing so that users have to do it manually. The A4 flatbed scanner featured have resolutions of 1200 x 1200 dpi which is equipped with an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) that can hold up to 35 pages.

Copy feature provided able to copy documents at resolutions up to 600 x 400 dpi. Other features that are not less interesting is the fax that can hold up to 500 pages in its memory. Although it already has a built-in wireless router but M1218nfs offer various connection are standard connection USB 2.0, Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

If the M1218nfs too expensive for you, maybe Canon Pixma MG2470 Inkjet Multifunction conform with the budget you have. Only by Rs.3,800 you can bring home a unit of this printer. Unfortunately, this model only provides a USB connection and has a low print speed only 8 ppm, but higher print resolution which is 4800 x 600 dpi.

Samsung Xpress M2020W MFP Wireless (Rs.6,800) offers better print speeds and resolution than M1218nfs. But you should be satisfied with the print function because you will not find scan and fax on it.

If price is not a major consideration, we recommend the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M176n (Rs.32,900). This printer allows you to print color documents. In addition, more powerful engine specifications thanks to a 600 MHz processor and 128 MB memory. Printing capability even better than M1218nfs where this printer can print up to 20,000 pages per month.
