The series includes the Pro 400 MFP M425 range of multi-function devices as well as the M401 range of single function printers, ideal for a variety of home and small to medium business needs and budgets.

“The M425 is the ideal device for business users who need a versatile, networked multi-function device that takes care of all of their everyday office functions. Not only does this range offer fax, copy, scan to email and scan to network along with high quality printing, the full colour touch screen also enables users to access a host of business apps.

Using wireless connectivity the printer can be networked and shared anywhere in the office. Business apps can be accessed through the touch screen available on selected models.

Automatic two-sided printing prevents unnecessary waste, reducing paper usage by up to 50%, and excess packaging has been removed by shipping the toner cartridges in the printers. All cartridges can be recycled through HP Planet Partners,” says De Fortier.
