The HP LaserJet Enterprise Flow M830z multifunction printer is aimed at medium to large offices looking for a versatile multifunction device that can improve their productivity and efficiency. Professional finishing, double-sided scanning, and flexible paper handling help save time and money, too, but the mediocre speed and high initial price of the high-volume HP LaserJet M830z laser multifunction printer might make some users think twice about buying it.
This is a large all-in-one machine with a fax, scanner, printer, and copier housed in a 1650mm wide, 1100mm tall, and 715mm deep frame that weighs 204Kg. The centrepiece of the HP M830z mono multifunction printer is the eight-inch SVGA LCD colour touch-screen with a keyboard. It runs on 1.5GB of memory with an 800MHz processor and a 320GB hard disk drive. There are two 500-sheet input trays, a 3,500-sheet high-capacity tray, and a 100-sheet multi-purpose tray. The standard connectivity options of the HP Enterprise Flow M830z include Wi-Fi, two high-speed USB 2.0 host ports, a high-speed USB 2.0 device, a foreign interface, two internal USB hosts, and Gigabit Ethernet.
This model is great for high volume usage. EveryPage technology is built into the device for easy detection of missing pages and potential errors while scanning. The LaserJet Enterprise Flow M830z laser printer helps increase productivity with single-pass and two-sided scanning, finishing options, and mobile printing capabilities. Administrators can easily monitor and control usage, and protect sensitive documents. Text documents are printed sharply in 1200x1200dpi. The Hewlett Packard LaserJet Flow M830z printer is easy to operate. Productivity is boosted by the black HP LaserJet Enterprise Flow M830z toner cartridge which can last for up to 40,000 pages.
The main disadvantage of this model is that it lacks an automatic paper sensor. The HP LaserJet Enterprise M-830z MFP is expensive and users might have to spend more if they want to buy the booklet maker and stapler hole punch finishers. It doesn't print in colour. The LaserJet M830z all-in-one printer can be difficult to set up and install because of the heavy and bulky frame. Furthermore, the LaserJet M830z Flow multifunction printer takes up a lot of space. Multi-tasking might be problematic and can make the machine sluggish because of the outdated processor speed.
