HP is a printer brand that we have always been using since a long time ago because of its variety. This time, we found two products that are interesting and worth reviewing. They are HP LaserJet M209dw vs HP LaserJet M209dwe, two laserjet printers with various features from HP.
HP LaserJet M209dw is made for small businesses and home offices. HP created this product to provide black-and-white document printing, which is suitable for printing reports, business documents, or official forms and letters.
We also love the duplex feature on this product, which allows us to print on two sides of paper much faster. Moreover, with its laser printing technology, the result is also accurate. That adds more value to this printer in this comparison review.
Digital printing is another feature we would like to highlight in this printer review. HP added this feature by integrating it with HP Smart App, which you can use to print documents or images from a mobile device. It also has a Scan to Cloud feature where you can scan directly from Cloud services, like Google Drive, DropBox, or other services.
Unfortunately, the printing speed is not as fast as other printers in the same class. This printer can only print up to 30 pages per minute for a single page or 19 pages per minute for a two-sided page. Then, when we tried this HP printer for the first time, the installation process was too complicated and need 37 additional steps to finish.
HP LaserJet M209dw Pros & Cons
One feature we like about this printer is the inclusion of the HP+ Smart Printing System. HP created this feature to simplify the mobile printing process. Furthermore, you also can use this feature to improve printer and device security, automatic updates, and many more.
HP also gives 6 months of free cartridges bonus as an additional bonus in this printer package. It means you have no worries about running out of ink for 6 months because they will send it to you whenever you run out for free. If you don’t need this service after six months, you can cancel it.
Similar to the first product, this printer has quite a slow printing speed. With just 30 pages per minute for one-side printing and 19 pages per minute for double-side, it is indeed not that satisfying if you use it for business or office printing purposes.
We also like the design, which looks simple and easy to use, suitable for any place in your place. In short, this printer has the looks. Then, the performance and features are also abundant, from printing, and scanning to copying documents or images, also everything is doable via the app on a mobile device.
HP LaserJet M209dwe Pros & Cons
Which is Better, HP LaserJet M209dw or M209dwe?
It is easy to decide which printer is the better one between HP LaserJet M209dw vs HP LaserJet M209dwe. We only need to see the features and bonuses each printer gives, and we choose M209dwe as the winner.
The six months of free ink and features from the HP Smart App are two reasons we choose this printer. Those two bonuses make this printer has more value than the other product.
