An MFP for Almost All Seasons

An MFP for Almost All Seasons

by P. J. Connolly
The LaserJet Pro M1536DNF from HP is a solid multifunction printer that supports the new AirPrint feature of Apple iOS, allowing iPad and iPhone users with updated software to print directly from their devices to the printer, without needing to route print jobs through a cloud-based service. It is designed for use in workgroups and small office environments, offers duplex printing as a standard feature and supports high-resolution copying and scanning of documents. It is inexpensive, yet fast, and is suitable wherever a wired connection to network and telephone services is available. Setup of the powerful, but lightweight, multifunction device can be accomplished in less than a half-hour, and the built-in management features mean that most day-to-day management of the printer can be done remotely, if desired. It's not intended for use in heavy-duty use cases, but performs well when faced with a monthly workload of a thousand or two pages.
P. J. Connolly began writing for IT publications in 1997 and has a lengthy track record in both news and reviews. Since then, he's built two test labs from scratch and earned a reputation as the nicest skeptic you'll ever meet. Before taking up journalism, P. J. was an IT manager and consultant in San Francisco with a knack for networking the Apple Macintosh, and his love for technology is exceeded only by his contempt for the flavor of the month.
