Recommended Printer
(compatible with PC and Mac)

We recommend that individuals and departments at UMass purchase only duplex-capable printers. Duplex printers automatically print on both sides of the page, saving money and paper. A duplex printer is a good investment for your budget and for the environment. We also recommend printers from Hewlett-Packard. Here are some HP duplex printers that have proven reliable and are compatible with our network:
