As the most upgraded model in its lineup, the HP LaserJet Enterprise Flow MFP M680z multifunction color laser printer is also the most capable. It includes the full complement of print, scan, copy, and fax features, with output speeds of up to 45 pages per minute. Its major hurdles are expensive HP MFP M680z toner supplies and a high upfront price tag, however.
The MFP M680z is a sizable machine, measuring 46.5x40.2x26.8 inches, and it weighs 191.3 pounds with the LaserJet Enterprise Flow MFP M680z printer toner supplies installed. Needless to say, it requires a lot of space. The top of the unit features a 100-sheet automatic document feeder that can handle single-pass duplex scanning. This makes it an excellent choice for digital workflows, which can also help alleviate the problem of expensive HP MFP M680z toner.
Connection options include a USB port and Gigabit ethernet for sharing. Buyers who want a little more flexibility as to placement in the office can upgrade it with wireless networking support. With either connection option, the device supports mobile printing with Apple's AirPrint protocol and HP's ePrint platform offers even more features, including both mobile printing and scanning documents directly to a mobile device.
Replacing four toners is often an expensive proposition, but HP MFP M680z toner cartridges are more expensive than those of its competition. Even with large yields of around 16,000 pages for color LaserJet Enterprise Flow MFP M680z toner cartridges and up to 21,000 pages for black, the supplies are not as cost-effective as they could be, making it an expensive model to operate.
For such a large and expensive model, the MFP M680z laser printer isn't as fast or as feature-rich as some of its competition. Combining that with a high price tag and expensive supplies, it is not a great value for its class.
