The HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 MFP M525 (RS.45,000 direct) is a massive multifunction printer (MFP) with some neat features, including a large touch screen and a built-in hard drive. It’s reasonably fast and has good text quality, though it stumbles a bit with graphics and photos. If your office is looking for a rich-featured monochrome MFP for heavy-duty text printing, it’s worth a close look.
The M525 can print, scan, copy, and fax; it can scan to e-mail, a network folder, USB thumb drive, or an FTP server, and print from a USB key. It offers secure, password-protected printing.
The M525 has a standard paper capacity of 600 sheets, split between a 500-sheet main tray and 100-sheet multipurpose tray. You can add up to two 500-sheet optional trays as well, for a total paper capacity of up to 1,600 sheets. An automatic duplexer lets you print on both sides of a sheet of paper. On the side of the printer is a built-in stapler, good for documents up to about 25 sheets, which you have to manually insert.
The M525f can connect via USB or Ethernet (including Gigabit Ethernet), and an optional Wi-Fi adapter is available ($269 direct). For mobile printing, it’s compatible with HP ePrint and Apple’s AirPrint. I tested the printer on a wired network with its drivers installed on a PC running Windows Vista.
