HP LaserJet Enterprise M600 Series Review

Good: Flexible paper-handling, Sure Start security feature, choices of high-yield and extra-high-yield toner cartridges (for the M608 and M609 devices).
Bad: Wireless connectivity is only optional; not intended for offices with low-volume printing needs.
Bottom Line: Scalable line of black-and-white high-volume printers with affordable operating costs.

Product Overview

The new LaserJet Enterprise M600 Series joins its multifunction siblings in HP’s lineup of devices targeted to larger offices. There are seven single-function monochrome printers grouped in three smaller series: the M607, the M608 and M609. All of these devices range in speed from 55ppm to 75ppm and includes a 1.2GHz processor and 512MB of standard memory.

There are two devices in the M607 series: the M607n ($750) and the M607dn ($950). Both devices print at up to 55ppm, has a first-page-out time of 5.3 seconds and include a 2.7″ LCD panel with a keypad. The M607dn includes standard duplexing.

The M608 series include three devices: the M608n ($1,050), the M608dn ($1,250) and the M608x ($1,600). These printers can print at up to 65ppm and has a first-page-out-time of 5.3 seconds.  The M608n and M608dn includes a 2.7″ LCD panel, while the M608x includes a 4.3″ color touchscreen.

The M609 series consist of two printers: the M609dn ($1,800) and the M609x ($2,150). Both printers has a speed of up to 75ppm. The M609dn includes a 2.7″ LCD panel and optional wireless connectivity. The M609x, on the other hand, has a 4.3″ color touchscreen and standard wireless connectivity.

More details on these printers is in our Features section below.

The LaserJet Enterprise M600 Series is a good buy for larger offices looking for a single-function high-volume printer without color output.

Features

All seven printers include PCL and PostScript printing language. USB and Ethernet connectivity is standard, while wireless is optional. Direct mobile printing is optional (except for the M608x and M609x, which has standard embedded Wi-Fi Direct). Users can download the HP ePrint, Apple AirPrint and Mopria-certified apps. Standard memory can be optionally expanded to 1.5GB maximum.

All printers include a standard 550-sheet tray and a 100-sheet multipurpose tray. An additional 550-sheet paper feeder is standard for the M608x and M609x. Users can optionally add up to four 550-sheet trays. A 2,100-sheet paper feeder is also optional. Maximum paper capacity is 4,950 sheets.

A 500-sheet output bin is standard. Automatic duplexing is supported for all printers except for the M607n and the M608n. There’s an optional five-bin stapler/stacker/mailbox finisher with job offset features.

The M600 Series ship with a 11,000-page toner cartridge. HP also offers optional high-yield and extra-high-yield cartridges for the M608 and M609 devices. We’ve calculated the cost per page of the extra-high-yield cartridge (41,000 pages) as less than one cent. That is very remarkable, especially for a device that produces high-volume printing. As the 11,000-page cartridge is only available for the M607 printers, we’ve calculated the cost per page as 1.7 cents. That is also more than reasonable.

And finally, we’d like to note the HP Sure Start security feature that helps prevent any viruses, malware or other attacks. With the Sure Start feature, a printer can self-detect an attempted attack and if such an attack occurs, will reboot itself and send a notification to the IT administrator.

Shortcomings

Wireless connectivity is only available as an option and not standard. Also, these printers are not intended for offices with low-volume printing needs.
