HP LaserJet Pro M402n Laser Printer Review – Black and White / Monochrome

May 18, 2020



Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) The HP LaserJet Pro M402N is a mid-range printer at a low-end starting price. See more at and subscribe here!

I have used HP LaserJets for over twenty years. Each one has easily gone a decade or more before it needed replacement and continually print well up until they completely die. In fact my Laserjet 2200 from 14 years ago is still chugging away even after it was dropped and the reset button fell out of it.

This one is surprisingly capable for the price. It’s as fast as a printer I would have paid easily twice as much for in the past, has excellent print quality, and seamlessly configures itself for every electronic device I have in the house – tablet, phone, computer, or otherwise. It even supports Google Cloud Print for Chromebooks.

What’s nice is that it also has a manual feed which is something that’s not always found in low cost laser printers these days. I was able to print a small stack of 3×5 index cards using the feeder vs. loading them in the paper tray.

Toner included with the less expensive version of this printer is a lame intro cartridge – probably an attempt to hit the sub $200 pricetag. I’d suggest just going with the version with the full toner since the replacement will cost about $110. The cartridges are good for about 3,000 pages with just text and minimal coverage. Printing items with photos and graphics will reduce that number a bit but it’s still more economical page to page vs. an inkjet printer.

One important note is that this printer does not have Wifi built in – so you will need to connect it up to your network switch or router with an ethernet cable (not included). It can also connect directly to a PC with USB (cable also not included). The only way to use it with mobile devices like phones and tablets is to get it connected to the network. I do like how it will tell you the printer’s IP address on the main display without having to hunt for it. The printer has a small web server that is helpful for configuring it.

Those looking for duplexing (printing on both sides of the paper) will also need to look at a higher-end model. But all in this is a mid-range printer for a low-end price. I can definitely recommend it.

  • Thank you so much for doing this video! I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get the new toner cartridge in the correct way! The user manual sucks!

  • Have the N402dw and it duplexes – I would not buy again had a heck of a time setting up the wireless printing. Compared to other laser cartages, these are expensive.

  • This printer is a piece of garbage. I talked to HP support before buying it to tell them what I needed it to do. It won't recognize envelope format from either Word or WordPerfect, second pages of documents print as garbage and the printer doesn't recognize forms put in the manual paper feed tray. Don't buy. Garbage and I can't get through to HP tech support for assistance after trying and trying and trying……………………………………….

  • I gave up on HP printers a few years ago… The last 3 printers were completely unreliable. We went to Brother, both ink jet and laser and we have been completely satisfied ever since…

  • I rarely print documents now. Most of my documents are stored on local NAS and cloud.

  • I think since Epson launched there Ecotank line of colour printers the cost benefit has swung back to the inkjet printer. Here in the uk I can get 100ml of the four ink colours for £29 ($50 approx)

  • Nope. Never buying an HP product again. If both of my HP computers started to have issues within 2 months, I can't even imagine how long the printer will last

  • This printer is garbage in my opinion, especially for that premium price! It's a ripoff and definitely not worth it!
    I have a Brother HL-L2380DW (which does scanning, duplex & wifi and does all the protocols this HP does & more) and I only paid $119 CAD, which was on sale. The regular price is $129 USD on Amazon.com. I also purchase third-party toner from Amazon.ca, which costs $64.99 for a 3x Pack HIgh Yield Toner, and each toner prints about 2,600 pages.

    As always, thanks for the honest review Lon… Cheers!
