The HP LaserJet M1522nf is a multifunction monochrome laser printer designed for the home or small office user. It has a wide array of features that will appeal to the multi-tasker, and the speed to keep up with a busy office.
The HP M1522nf can print, scan, and copy, and in the "f" models, it also has fax capabilities. Don't let its small office design fool you, its features are all business. Each function is well-implemented and intuitive to use. The unit has an automatic document feeder that can hold up to 50 sheets at once for automatic scanning, and can be used for copying, scanning, and faxing. It also has a flatbed scanner for media that won't fit in the document feeder, such as books or stapled pages.
The copier can make up to 99 copies at once, and resize from 25 to 400%. Scanning at a resolution of up to 1200 dpi is supported, and color scanning up to 24-bit depth. The LaserJet M1522nf has a paper capacity of 260 sheets, which is pretty good for a multifunction designed for small offices. The main paper drawer holds 250 sheets, and a priority tray can hold up to 10 sheets when alternate media is needed. The printer is powered by a 450 MHz processor, and has 64 MB of RAM, though the memory can not be upgraded, which is a strange oversight.
Print speed is impressive for the HP M1522nf, given the price and size of the unit, at about 23 pages per minute. Copies can print at the same speed, minus scanning time. First page out time is also quick, at 9.5 seconds. Print quality is excellent. Text is sharp and defined. Graphics prints are a little below average, but still passable for everyday printing.
Overall, the HP LaserJet M1522nf wraps up a nice array of features that should suit the needs of small office users quite well. For higher volume offices, consider the HP M2727 toner printer. Lack of expansion may be an issue for offices expecting to grow, but for home or personal users, it will be a great choice.
