Energy use
Most laser printers will have jumpy energy readings and energy usage in general when the device is in use. During our energy test, when the M175nw was in “ready” mode (or, when it wasn’t being used), it stood at an even 8 watts. During printout sessions in the default print mode, we pulled numbers ranging from 280-370 watts, but during short periods of time it was down as low as 18 watts. The energy during startup remained in the 10-100 watt range a lot, but also reached as high as 340 watts. Energy saving features of the M175nw include HP Auto-Off and Instant-On, and it’s Energy Star qualified.

We fully recommend this product for numerous reasons. The HP LaserJet Pro M175nw is not only a reliable 3-in-one product, but it’s compact, offers speedy monochrome prints times that are of good quality, has wireless network connectivity, and also has some great features such as ePrint technology and a 35-sheet ADF. Moreover, we didn’t come to any shocking results during our tests to deter us from recommending the M175nw.
