Saturday—HP Color LaserJet Pro M281fdw All-in-One Laser Printer

A recent purchase made here. Like nearly every consumer product, there are hundreds of printers to choose from. How does one decide?

In this case, I thought about the features I needed and then chose one with some features the last printer didn’t have and that I think we might use over time. Then, like most everyone I imagine, I read reviews and searched for the best price. While B&H doesn’t have any reviews, Amazon has 90. Printer reviews are somewhat like home appliance ones, frustratingly bifurcated. And of course, who really knows whether a review is made up or not.

After a month, it’s clear this is a serious upgrade from our retired Brother monochrome that cost two-thirds less. It’s one of those purchases where you wonder why you waited so long. Go forth and print, copy, scan, and fax. Sans cables. In color if you choose.
