The LaserJet Pro 400 Color mfp M475dw is identical to the Laser Jet Pro 400 color MFP M475dn in all respects except one: it has Wi-Fi.
Hardware: An all-in-one multifunction colour laser printer with double-sided printing and Wi-Fi. With PCL 6, PCL 5 and Postscript 3 recognition and Mac, Windows and Linux compatibility, this multifunction printer is an easy one to use.
Speeds: The M475dn prints as fast in colour as it does in black and white: 22 pages per minute (ppm). That's 10 pages more than the Xerox Workcentre 6015 NI for colour.
Quality: The quality is quite good. The nuances of grey are accurate and lines are thin and well-defined both in colour and B&W. Our test graph comes out sharp, clear and precise.
Cost Per Page: The HP M475dn's 14.6 pence per page is higher than the Konica Minolta Magicolor 3730DN (11.1 pence) and the Brother HL-4570CDW (7.7 pence). Yet it's still competitive at 2 pence per page in B&W.

The touchscreen is enjoyable to use and the online apps allow you to print without a computer. It prints fast and in high quality. We were, however, disappointed with the high energy consumption during sleep mode.
