What is the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw?

The main change that’s happening to all kinds of office printer, particularly those at the SOHO end of the market, is support for a wider range of devices. It’s no longer sufficient for a printer to work with a PC or a Mac; it’s important it works with iOS and Android devices too, and HP’s LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw aims to cover all the bases.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw – Design and Features

This is a rectangular, black box, which still manages to look clean-cut and modern, despite its boxy bearing. It has a conventional design, with a flat rectangular lid to the flatbed scanner The whole scanner section hinges up for easier access to the top cover of the printer section, which lifts for access to the one-piece drum and toner cartridge.

At the front, to the right of the output tray, a neat, flat control panel folds up. This has a rather haphazard arrangement of buttons and indicators, though the power button is, smartphone style, located on the right-hand edge. The Copy button, in particular, is rather small, though its icon is coloured green for identification.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw - Controls

There’s a 2-line, 16-character mono LCD on the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M125nw, which isn’t always easy to read, because it doesn’t have a backlight. The paper feed tray is a clip-on attachment, which sticks out quite a way from the front of the printer and the output tray folds and telescopes out above, by about the same amount.

Bundled software includes HP Scan, an eco-print utility and membership of HP Connected, formerly ePrint.
