HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227fdw VS. Xerox B215

Whether you’re setting up a new office or upgrading existing equipment, choosing the right copier is imperative to ensuring the smooth operation of your business. There are many copiers on the market with a wide range of features and prices for you to choose from.

Which features do you need? Which features would be nice to have? Which are entirely unnecessary for your business? Doing product research can quickly turn into a major distraction and time commitment as you dig deeper and deeper into the various options for your business. 

The HP is much better at printing accurate colours, which is important if you work in print media. On the other hand, the Xerox printer prints much faster.

Some aspects of business are simply black and white. But it still needs to be versatile, fast and perform many tasks simultaneously to be truly productive. And the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227FDW is aimed squarely at users who have a need for a purely monochrome MFP, but still, need a printer that is more than just a printer. 

Using the latest HP JetIntelligence the unit is smaller, faster, prints more pages per cartridge and is more energy efficient than before. With the ability to print, scan, copy, fax and print both sides of the sheet of paper automatically it has all the versatility that today’s business environment demands.

Designed for small workgroups ranging in size from 1 to 5, the HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227FDW is quick off the mark with a first page out time of 6.8 seconds from ready and 8.7 seconds from the energy-saving sleep mode. From then on it prints up to 28 A4 pages every minute.

Print resolution is at 1200 x 1200 dpi in best mode and 600 x 600 dpi in normal (draft) mode, producing high-quality prints as expected from a laser printer.

As always getting ahead in today’s business environment relies on being well-connected. Today it’s no longer who you know but rather how many devices can access a printer. In this respect, the HP LaserJet MFP M227FDW has an array of connectivity to allow a multitude of devices to access it.

On the front is a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port to allow easy access for material on a USB stick to be downloaded.  Also on the front is a Near Field Connector (NFC) allowing various mobile devices such as Smartphones, tablets, notebooks etc to be paired with the MFP. This permits direct printing from the paired device.

The rear panel has the other connections; a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 host port, an Ethernet 10/199 port to hardwire to a network, and one phone line in and a phone line out.

Xerox B215

The B215 sits at the top of a recent three-machine debut, which includes the Editors’ Choice print-only B210 and the B205 AIO, a pared-down iteration of the B215. With the B205, for a $50 difference in list prices, you give up automatic two-sided printing, a colour touch-screen control panel, and a few other notable features, including a 500-pages-per-month difference in the recommended monthly print volume.

The B215 comes with a 40-sheet manual-duplexing ADF, meaning that to scan and copy multipage two-sided documents, you must turn the originals over manually, which is the same as the MB2336adw’s 50-sheet manual-duplexing ADF. The MF269dw and the ET-M3170 both have 35-sheet auto-duplexing ADFs that scan two-sided originals without user intervention.

You can configure and control, as well as perform walk-up tasks such as scanning to the cloud or making copies, from the B215’s 3.5-inch touch-screen control panel, shown below, or from its built-in web server, which, like the control panel, allows you to monitor consumable levels, generate reports, set security parameters, and much more.

Paper handling on the B215 consists of one 250-sheet drawer and a one-sheet override slot for printing one-off envelopes and other off-shaped media without opening and reconfiguring the main paper tray. This is the same configuration as the MF269dw, the MB2336adw, and the ET-M3170.
