Consensus

our Verdict

The HP LaserJet Tank MFP 2604sdw is a good pick for business. Equipped with a SuperTank system, this printer doesn’t require cartridge replacement and offers an incredibly high page yield of about 4560. Its printing costs average 0.65 cents per page, and it ranks in the top 5% of our certified, tested printers. It prints and scans clear documents at resolutions of up to 600 dpi in monochrome and color. However, if you’re looking for a more affordable monochrome printer, see Brother HL-L2325DW review. The printer works with the HP Smart app for intuitive operation.

This MFP 2604sdw model is not as fast as the typical AIO LaserJet printer, though its printing speed of 12.85 is passable for most businesses. A 250-sheet paper tray and 40-sheet automatic feeder take care of big jobs. Although this model offers automatic duplex printing, it doesn’t support automatic duplex scanning. The LaserJet Tank MFP 2604sdw is also bulky and incapable of color printing.

Reason to Buy

  • High-quality printing
    • The HP LaserJet Tank MFP 2604sdw is an incredible printer for business, printing high-quality monochrome documents at resolutions of up to 600 x 600 dpi.

  • Remarkably low running costs
    • A SuperTank system that will never require cartridge replacement makes this device very affordable to run.

    • The printing costs average about 0.65 cents per page, ranking in the top 5% of our certified tested printers.

Reason to Avoid

  • Flatbed scanner
    • Its 600 dpi 24-bit color scanner has an automatic document feeder, although it doesn’t support automatic duplex scanning and produces slightly hazy scans.

  • Mediocre printing speed
    • The HP LaserJet Tank MFP 2604sdw prints at speeds of 12.85 ppm in monochrome, which is below average compared to our certified, tested printers.

  • Lacks versatility
    • This multifunctional printer doesn’t offer color printing.

Being a SuperTank laser printer, the HP LaserJet Tank MFP 2604sdw has a much lower printing cost per page than the Pantum P2502W, which is a regular laser printer.
