While most printers are aimed to the general populace, i.e., normal people like us who only use once or twice a week when we have assignments, there is certainly market for printers dedicated to enterprises that requires some of the most heavy-duty printer to do its job. So, here is a HP LaserJet Enterprise M690X review.
Yes, it is certainly expensive, but considering that it’s aimed for enterprise, that’s to be expected. Anyway, let’s see what this printer has in store for us.
Right out of the get go, the M690X is a massive block of white despite being only used for printing purposes. It’s 17x18x19 just from dimension alone, and weights at around 58 pounds. It’s a massive thing that will surely need a dedicated space for it to function.
The M960X has an expansive 100-sheet MP tray and two 550-sheet feeders. All three of which supports automatic duplexing.
Seeing its size and tray sizes alone, you can already guess what this printer is made for. That’s right, the M609x is made for high-volume monochrome printing. It’s rated at 300,000 pages for monthly duty cycle, and from our testing, it actually can backup its claim.
To achieve this number, it of course has to be fast, and lo and behold, one of its strongest points and selling points in this HP LaserJet Enterprise M690X review is indeed its speed at printing monochrome pages.
It prints at 75ppm and only has a 7 seconds wake-up time. All of these make the M690X an enterprise monster if the only thing you’re going to be doing is just monochrome printing.
Since it’s a one-function printer, the Enterprise M690x only offer a handful of features that are still helpful, but definitely not as expansive as the likes of MFP printers, enterprise or otherwise.
Apart from its automatic duplexing, it also supports cloud and mobile printing. You can use AirPrint, Google Cloud Print or HP Smart app easily to print stuff from your phone. Or, if you want to do it the traditional way with cables, the M690X has an Ethernet port and USB 2.0 port.
But other than that, the Enterprise M690X is quite barebone in terms of feature. There is of course the usual admin control panel in the form HP Web Jetadmin that provides information and control over the printer’s network, but that’s pretty much it.
So, what can we conclude from this HP LaserJet Enterprise M690X review?
Well, the M690X is an expensive printer, as expected from its enterprise tag, but it does its job absurdly well. It can handle a lot of paper through its MP trays and regular trays, and it prints detailed and crips mono pages at breakneck phase.
It’s of course not the printer for everyone, but if you’re in the market for high volume mono printer, the M609X is an absolute bang for your buck. Not to mention how well it handles auto duplexing and mobile printing.
