3.5 stars Very good

The Good Includes Ethernet, USB and Wi-Fi. Excellent colour reproduction. Good display panel. ePrint enabled.

The Bad Very slow printing. Overpriced for the Australian market.

The Bottom Line HP's colour laser multifunction printer delivers very high-quality prints, especially in colour, but you'll need plenty of patience while waiting for your prints.

The LaserJet 300 clearly fits into the bracket of SOHO colour multifunction lasers built for the larger home office; at 420x483x500mm and a hefty 28.2kg, this is a printer that you can't easily just drop onto a desk — or, for that matter, even lift without a little help. For those with a smaller home office set-up, this isn't really for you, but then the asking price should make that rather obvious. For what it's worth, it's large enough that when propped up on its own box, we were able to work standing up, propping an ultrabook on top of the printer.

The standout design feature of the LaserJet Pro 300 M375nw is the control panel, which is a 3.5-inch colour touchscreen. While printer interfaces are never something that you'd easily be able to describe as alluring, HP has done a decent job with the LaserJet Pro 300 M375nw's set-up; not only is it intuitive to use for basic functions, but it's also decent to look at. From a SOHO perspective, if you entertain a lot of clients from your office that may make a difference.

At its asking price, you'd reasonably expect the LaserJet Pro 300 M375nw to come with a full array of features, and, for the most part, it doesn't disappoint. The basics are covered, with printing, copying, scanning and faxing from either PC or directly from the touchscreen, with the notable exception being duplexing. Connectivity is also a high point, with in-built networking covering both Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n.
