Why the HP LaserJet M527 Is a Top-Selling MFP

Feb 13, 2018

HP M527 Black & White Laserjet A4 MFP SeriesSince it was launched in September 2015, the HP LaserJet M527 black & white A4/letter sized multifunction printers (MFP) has been one of the best selling printers on the market – especially when compared with the Lexmark MX611, Samsung ProXpress M4070, Brother MFC-8950, Dell B3465, and OKI MB562. Here's why.

High-End Features

Here are some highlights of the HP M527's functionality and performance:

  • 45 page per minute black & white printing speed (letter)
  • Standard paper capacity of 650 sheets, split between a 550-sheet main tray and a 100-sheet multipurpose feeder
  • Up to three optional 550-sheet paper trays are available for a maximum paper capacity of 2,300 sheets
  • An auto duplexer for printing on both sides of a sheet of paper
  • Monthly duty cycle of 150,000 pages and a recommended monthly duty cycle of up to 7,500 pages
  • 100-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) and a flatbed for scanning with single pass duplex capability
  • 8" color touchscreen control panel to support advanced workflow
  • USB and Ethernet connectivity
  • Optional fax, 500GB hard drive, pullout keyboard, and ultrasonic double-feed protection

Strongest Security in the Industry

According to the Ponemon Institute, 64% of IT managers believe their printers are likely infected with malware, and 56% of companies ignore printers in their endpoint security strategy. Not a good combination…

To address this gap, HP has developed the following features for the M527:

  • HP Sure Start: each device regularly checks its operating code and repairs itself from attempted hacks
  • Whitelisting: checks firmware during startup to help ensure it's authentic, good code—digitally signed by HP
  • Run-Time Intrusion Detection: continually monitors activity to detect and stop attacks, then automatically reboots

Impressive "Bang-for-Your-Buck"

The HP M527 has much the same features and functionality as larger units but is more cost-effective, in a much smaller footprint that easily fits on a table. The M527 is 24% smaller than predecessor HP M525, and is 33% faster.

Don't take our word for it, the HP LaserJet M527 was rated "Excellent" by PC Magazine.
