The HP LaserJet Pro M1136 MFP is rather compact for a laser printer of considerably heavy duty cycle. HP has designed it differently from its earlier range. So this printer has a boxy-looking black polymer body with a little bit of grey here and there. This gives it a serious look with a touch of style and elegance. The build of the body is quite rugged and there is no tackiness anywhere. It can easily withstand the rigors of office environment. The device is understandably heavy at 7 kg, so you would not want to move it around too much. A large power button is present on the bottom left of the printer for convenient access.
Installing the toner cartridge is pretty easy; just open the cartridge bay and slide the cartridge into place. The instruction manual clearly mentions how to do this.
The input tray is present at the bottom, and it can be adjusted to accept different paper sizes. Its capacity is 150 sheets, which is adequate for SOHO or SMBs. Paper is placed with the side to be printed facing up.
