HP LaserJet Pro M28w scanner driver

We reverse engineered the HP LaserJet Pro M28w driver and included it in VueScan so you can keep using your old scanner.

Here’s what some of our customers are saying

Canon CanoScan LiDE 100. wouldn’t work under Windows 7, wouldn’t work under Linux Mint, VueScan definitely gave it a second life. VueScan works like a charm under Linux Mint, and even fixed a critical issue with the user rights. Money well spent. See review on

Hamrick Software. I have been using VueScan for 10 years on several different computers using 3 scanner models. It really is an excellent product well maintained and exceptional value for money. It has given me a lot of pleasure over the years and helped produce some high quality scans of vintage family photography. I can recommend it to anyone. See review on

In Jan 2003 I bought VueScan for my Epson Perfection 1200. I used it a lot, more functions than the standard driver. Got new computers with new operating systems, forgot about VueScan. I got a new Epson scanner. old one doesn’t have Win10 drivers. I remembered VueScan. Found it, downloaded the trial version, and my old EPSON 1200 scanner WORKED again. Wow, a purchase made in 2003, works on a PC with an operating system that doesn’t exist in 2003.17 YEARS later! And that for a very small amount of money. THIS IS SERVICE AND ADDING VALUE TO YOUR CUSTOMER! See review on

I had tons of photos to scan, and after doing some research I decided to go for VueScan. I don’t regret my decision. Scanning was a breeze and saved me a lot of time. I’m using a Brother All-in scanner which I bought 3 years ago and whilst its scanning software is not bad it’s much slower and has way less options than VueScan. My operation system is Windows 10. I can recommend VueScan without hesitation. It”s worth the money. See review on

Win10 doesn’t support my older Fujitsu scansnap. But, with VueScan I can keep using it. so far, so good. See review on

Far better control of Nikon scanners than Nikon’s own software. And does a great job with Kodachrome slides. See review on

It’s absurd that I couldn’t use my Espon WF-3520 scanner when Mac OS updated, and Epson obviously has no interest in fixing the problem. Works perfectly with VueScan 9. See review on

Was going to send my very old HP scanjet to the landfill but thanks to Hamrick Software I won’t have to. Very sustainable. It works on my Macbook with Catalina OS. See review on

Vuescan Professional saved me from having to buy a new scanner when Mac Catalina no longer supported my current scanner. Much less expensive than buying a new scanner, easy to use and great quality. See review on

Peter lucas

Rescued my Canon P-215 from the junk heap. Kept postponing updating my MacBook Air to High Sierra just to keep the Canon driver working. For some reason the driver and proprietary software stopped working today anyway. Thanks to VueScan, I get to use my scanner despite the fact that there’s no longer support from Canon. Thank you! See review on

Peter Yurowitz

I have 3 scanners in perfect condition, each no longer supported by their respective manufacturers, and no longer recognized by the latest version of MacOS. It was only after I purchased a new, supported and recognized scanner (big mistake) that I discovered VueScan. The product instantly identified the ID, connected scanners, and brought them back to life. The new scanner is now sitting around collecting dust. An absolutely magnificent product. Highly recommended. See review on

Ward hagaman

This software is great! We LOVE our ScanSnap S1500M and were so disappointed when it stopped working after the upgrade to macOS Catalina. We are so happy to have VueScan solve this issue for us. We are able to continue using our ScanSnap without having to shop for a new scanner. Installation and payment were easy and the VueScan software works wonderfully. Highly recommend! See review on

I’m very pleased with the software. It recognized all scanner features and allows me to continue scan to documents after macOS update. See review on

It even offers more settings and is much faster than the original software. Thank you so much, Hamrick Software, you made my day! See review on

Multifunctional device: printer, scanner and copy in model from HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w. Advantages and disadvantages. How I set up the printer, including the wireless connection! I had to dig in. Connecting a new laptop to the printer.

I would like to share with you information about your recently purchased HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w.

My Samsung MFP has worked its way out, and for home use this technique is very convenient: print, copy, scan some documents, etc.

I chose not only for functionality, but also for compactness. The choice fell on the HP MFP. This brand has been on the market for a long time and is well recommended, I think that this is one of the best brands that produce office equipment, well, and not cheap.

In the past, the MFP did not have a wireless connection, I decided that I needed to buy it with wi-fi, because you take it for more than one year, you need to take it for comfort.

Ordered on [link]. The cost is 12 518 rubles. I wrote off points THANKS from SBERBANK 1500 rubles. Extra paid 11,018 rubles.

Came within 4 days, picked up from the point of issue. The box is not heavy, I carried it calmly to the car, to the entrance, to the apartment.

Printer relative to 32-inch TV:

You can install anywhere with a power outlet thanks to Wi-fi.

Includes wires, installation disc and three-page manual (in Russian).

No instruction, you won’t understand anything, set half a day: from 15 to 22.

Holes for paper in and out:

As for the installation: I was tormented for a long time with a wireless connection, I can’t find any information anywhere, I wrote to the HP website. useless. There is no clear tuning aLGorithm in the instructions, everything is blurry. About the installation disk not a word anywhere. Poked, mopped, installed. Installed on the phone later and quickly.

In general, how I installed the printer:

For a wireless connection, it is necessary that the indicator on the wi-fi control panel does not blink, but burns blue continuously, but for me it blinks. Long reading instructions on paper. and then on the HP website (there are links in the instructions), I installed the program on the HP Easy Start computer from the [link] website, and apparently installed something incorrectly, because the indicator, although it started to light blue continuously, but printing via wi- fi didn’t go.

Since the mfp supports the Wi-Fi direct function, I chose this connection method. To find out the network name and password, you need to press a certain key configuration on the printer panel and a report will be issued, where the Wi-Fi direct login and password are indicated. The configuration of the keys is spelled out in the instructions.

After the WI-FI indicator on the printer turns blue continuously, another network will appear on the computer, where all network connections are visible, except for the standard home network of the router, you need to connect to it, enter the Wi-Fi direct password from the printed report. This will establish communication between the printer and the computer. Next, you need to reconnect the home network.

In fact, everything should work, but it didn’t work for me. I rebooted my computer, it still didn’t work. As a result, I went to Devices and Printers on a PC, stood on the icon of a new MFP, selected Troubleshooting through the context menu (right mouse button), and the computer detected the problem, showed what needs to be done, I fixed everything, I don’t remember what exactly, but it worked for me. That is, the wireless connection from the computer was established in 6 hours))))

From the phone. in seconds, you just need to install the app. I have installed the HP Plugin.

If you have any questions, write in the comments.

I connected it quickly to the printer via Wi-Fi direct:

m28w, printer, scan

1) so the printer is plugged in, plugged into the control panel. Wi-Fi is automatically caught, you can press the button on the WI-fi printer.

2) on the laptop, open “devices and printers”, add a device-printer model. A sheet with a new password from Wi-Fi direct came out of the printer immediately.

3) on the laptop we connect a new network, enter this password. And back we connect to the home Wi-Fi network.

Review on HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w Printer

In recent years, laser printers have come down a lot in price, but they still tend to be too expensive and too bulky for home offices. However, if you do not need to print in color, for example, a photo for documents. mono lasers can be very compact.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w performance

The M28w works well for such an inexpensive printer. This doesn’t quite match HP’s stated speed of 18 ppm, but our Word and PDF text documents still hit around 16.5 ppm.

It doesn’t print in color, of course, but we’ve tested several documents that combine text and graphics, and the M28w still handles at 15ppm, so you can use it for handouts and other documents that don’t require color. charts.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w price

There are also two M15 models, which are simple monochrome laser printers without a scanner. The M15a provides USB connectivity for just £ 70, while the M15w. Wi-Fi for £ 79. In the US, these printers are all brand new, the M28w is showing as ‘coming soon’ on HP’s website, and the 99 M15w is currently out of stock.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w print quality

And of course, the text quality is as good as laser-printed, with crisp text for business documents. It also handles black and white graphics well, so you can still print photos and other graphics from time to time, even if they are not in color. Naturally, it can scan in color even if the photocopier function only works in mono.

HP LaserJet Pro M28w running costs

However, the speed and quality of the M28w is very high. The purchase price includes a “starter” toner cartridge, which HP claims should last about 500 pages. Replacement cartridges have a large capacity. 1000 pages. but they cost £ 50.99 / 49.99 if bought directly from HP. The confusing part numbers are different for the UK and US. In the UK it is called 44a, and in the US. 48a.

HP LaserJet Pro MFP M28w printer features and design

The M28w genuinely surprised us when it arrived as it is very compact indeed. It’s only 198mm high, 360mm wide and 264mm deep, and is certainly small enough to stand on a desk next to a computer in a small office or home room. Plus, it’s solidly built despite its low cost, and can use a useful set of office-grade features, including 600dpi print resolution and 1200dpi scanner.

There is a 150-sheet paper tray at the base of the printer, and the output tray holds 100 sheets, and the 1,000-sheet recommended monthly volume is much more than most people need. The printer provides both USB and Wi-Fi connectivity, with Apple AirPrint support for iOS devices and Google Cloud Print for everyone else. There is also an HP Smart app that you can use to print and scan from iOS and Android devices.

However, there are several signs of cost reductions. The small 1-inch LED control screen isn’t very useful, although the HP software works well and provides all the features you need to control print or scan from your PC or Mac. There is also no automatic two-sided printing (duplex printing), although there is an option for manual two-sided printing for occasional use.
