HP LaserJet 5M Printer
Simple, flexible network printing for mixed environments

The HP LaserJet 5M printer offers seamless network printing to workgroups in PC/Macintosh mixed-client environments. With easier operation, enhanced performance, versatile paper handling and more ways to expand and connect to the network, the HP LaserJet 5M printer lets you pack a lot of printing into your budget.

The HP LaserJet 5M printer builds on the proven performance of the HP LaserJet 4 Plus printer, with enhancements that make network printing simpler and more productive.
