HP LaserJet Pro 300/400 color M351/M451 - Installing the printer software in Mac OS on a Wireless Network

Installation and driver options
Review the following information to decide which installation option to use.
CD
Download
For a new product
CD installation is also a quick and easy method, but might not contain the latest software available, even for a newer product.
Downloading the software is free from the HP Web site and it includes the latest product-specific drivers, installer software, and other administrative tools.
The software download is the preferred solution as it provides full product software functionality or the most advanced features available for the product. This driver is the best option and is recommended for most multi-function products when available.
For an older product
CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released after the HP product released.
Downloading the software provides good results for older products and can help avoid installation issues.
About the software
The software on the CD is current only to the date of the product release.
The software available from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers after the product and CD release to the market.
