The HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn is part of a series of monochrome laser printers that includes the M401 base model, the international M401a version, the M401d with duplexing, and the M401dw that adds wireless support. The M401dn model itself includes both duplexing and wired ethernet for network sharing. It can provide print speeds of up to 35 pages per minute and high-capacity versions of HP M401dn printer toner can make it a very affordable solution.
The M401dn will fit best in a small, shared office environment, and it has the build for it, measuring just 10.7x14.4x14.5 inches, and weighing 24.2 without the LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn toner installed. Automatic duplexing can conserve paper by printing on both sides of the page, and its initial paper capacity of 300 sheets can be expanded to a maximum of 800 sheets by adding an optional second tray.
Mobile printing has become increasingly important, even in an office environment, so the M401dn includes support for the HP ePrint standard as well as Apple's AirPrint. The ePrint option lets users print from the cloud by sending an email to the printer with a document attached. The AirPrint solution applies only to Apple devices, but makes for easy integration.
Toners are available in standard and high-capacity sizes. The standard black HP M401dn toner cartridge provides up to 2,700 pages, while the high-capacity HP M401dn toner cartridges can provide up to 6,900 pages each, for a much lower cost per page. Compatible HP M401dn toner is commonly available for a fraction of the cost of OEM versions, and makes for the most economical choice.
With fast speeds, great networking features, and the ability to print from virtually anywhere, the HP M401dn can become the central hub of a busy small office. Expandability options for paper handling leave room for growth in the future as well.

HP LaserJet Pro M401 Instructional Video Transcript
The LaserJet Pro M401 is catered to micro or small offices that need fast-paced laser printing. It can output up to 35 pages per minute, yet it weighs a little under 25 pounds. This makes it a good fit for tight office spaces, and its paper capacity of 300 sheets can be expanded to a maximum of 800 sheets.
Find the toner button on the right side of the front panel and press it as you lower the access panel toward you. Look for the handle on the empty HP M401 toner cartridge, and pull it toward you to remove it.
Take the replacement LaserJet Pro M401 toner cartridge out of its box, discard the packing materials, and carefully remove it from the bag.
Rock the cartridge back and forth about 5 or 6 times to redistribute the toner powder inside. Find and remove the black paper that protects the drum by pulling it in the direction the arrows are pointing. Loop one finger inside the tape strip at one end, then pull it straight out of the M401 cartridge.
Align the HP M401 cartridge with the sliding rails on either side of the opening, and slide it into the machine. Press firmly to make sure it is seated properly, then close the front access panel.
You are now ready to resume printing with your LaserJet Pro M401 laser printer.
