HP Color LaserJet EnterPrise CP4525n (CC493A) Printer Review

The HP Color LaserJet EnterPrise CP4525n (CC493A) is a high-performance colored hp laser printer with special networking security features. It’s mainly efficient when it comes to paper handling, paper capacity, and office printing management. It wouldn’t be an enterprise unit for nothing, that’s why it offers networked-ready features for fast-paced businesses and organizations.

Aside from its strikingly fast print engine, at a rated printing speed of up to 42 pages per minute. It also offers a reliable color printing technology, through high-quality ColorSphere HP 647A toner cartridges (CYMK). HP even boosts its color printing capability by installing HP ImageREt 3600 enhancement for more accurate results at up to 1200 x 1200 dpi.

Now with enhanced network security, HP ensured their customers with secured printing features via HP Secure Hard Disk and IPSec. However, it’s a bit disappointing that for users who prefer the LaserJet CP4525n, such features are optional and does not include upon purchase. So basically, you have to pay an extra cost to have these security features installed with the unit. Nevertheless, it’s a good thing they offer it as an optional upgrade rather than not.

Even if it’s a networked-ready laser printer, this model does not support HP ePrint which is use for mobile printing. This is due to the lack of wireless interface that is very important when it comes to wireless printing. Standard connection interfaces include hi-speed USB, Gigabit Ethernet and EIO. While the rest like Print Servers, JetDirect and WiFi interfaces can be purchased optionally.

Paper handling is generous, with a standard input capacity of 600 sheets split between a 100-sheet multipurpose tray, plus a 500-sheet main tray. Its output tray can hold a maximum of 500 sheets, no more no less. In addition, there are secondary trays available including a 500-sheet paper feeder and a postcard media tray.

HP gave it a monthly duty cycle of around 120000 pages, but its recommended monthly print capacity ranges from 2500 to 10,000 prints. Its control panel has minimal buttons and keys, thanks to its 2.03-inch color screen display, configuring the printer’s system become easier. Plus it’s a great factor that contributes to a printer’s level of being a user-friendly unit.

The toner cartridge is the HP CP4525N laser toner cartridge which has a page yield of 8,500 for the black and 11,000 pages for the color the color.

The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CP4525n may be expensive upfront, but it’s literally a workhorse for corporate and business environments. Just make sure that once you get it out of the box, a definite place for it is set and ready, because this printer is literally heavy and bulky which make it hard for you to move it around.
