HP MFP M477 Printer Color LaserJet Pro Pictures

We got an opportunity to set up this brand new color LaserJet Pro HP MFP M477 printer for a local no profit group.  As we installed it, we snapped the following pictures of unboxing, connecting it to a WiFi network, and installing the driver for it on a Windows 10 Lenovo computer.  Setup went smoothly as you would expect, when following the well detailed HP instructions that came with the MFP M477.

First, Unpack the HP MFP M477 Color Laser Printer

The box was quite unwieldy and heavy to move about and unpack.  In fact, we had to turn it onto its side once we opened the top to slide the unit out.
