    When Are Most New HP Laser Printers Released?

    We couldn't see any clear pattern in the release dates for new HP laser printers over the last 3 years.

    Six new HP laser printers were released in March 2018 making it the biggest month that year for new HP laser printer releases. In 2017 most new HP laser printers were released in November, with 78 new HP laser printers released that month. The biggest month in 2016 for new HP laser printer releases was October, with seven new HP laser printers released that month.

    .

    How Fast Do HP Laser Printer Prices Drop After Release?

    New HP laser printers drop in price by an average of 1% in the first 6 months after they wer first released.

    That means that on a typical HP laser printer costing £389 you could save on average £5 by waiting 6 months before buying.
