Best Fit

The  HP LaserJet Enterprise M608x is a speedy printer that can print up to 100 pages per minute in A5 size and 61 pages per minute in A4 size. Its fast printing capability is also reflected in its quick first page out time of 5.3 seconds and wake-up time of 7.8 seconds.

The printer is also efficient and durable, with a monthly duty cycle of 275,000 pages and a recommended monthly page volume of 5,000 to 25,000 pages.

The M608x is most suitable for medium to large offices that require fast, efficient, and high-volume monochrome printing, and do not need Wi-Fi connectivity.

Bottom Line

The HP LaserJet Enterprise M608x is a basic monochrome printer, similar to other models in the M600 series. It boasts fast and efficient printing with high resolution, producing clear and sharp text and images.

One of the key features of the M608x, like other M600 printers, is HP Sure Start security. This security feature helps prevent viruses, malware, and other attacks. In the event of an attack, the M608x can self-detect and reboot, while also alerting the administrator.

In addition to security features, the M608x also supports HP ePrint, wireless direct printing, Apple Airprint, and Mopria-Certified apps. However, for its price, the M608x is relatively light on features.

Compared to earlier M600 series printers like the HP LaserJet Enterprise M607n and HP LaserJet Enterprise M607dn, the M608x comes with some notable additions, such as automatic duplex printing and compatibility with high/extra high-yield toner cartridges.

However, the M608x falls short in certain areas, such as its lack of Wi-Fi connectivity and color printing capabilities, which can be inconvenient for office settings. 

Additionally, the M608x is a basic one-function printer, lacking fax, copy, and scan capabilities, which may be limiting for some office settings.

Overall, the HP LaserJet Enterprise M608x is a great option for medium to large offices seeking a fast, efficient, and durable printer with flexible paper handling and high-level security features. 

However, it may not be the best fit for offices that require Wi-Fi connectivity, color printing, or copy/scan/fax capabilities.

To complement the performance of the HP LaserJet Enterprise M608x and achieve optimal print quality, explore HP toner cartridges compatible with the model.
