HP OfficeJet Pro 8740 All-in-One Printer

 

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8740 All-in-One Printer competes more directly with color laser multifunction printers than with typical inkjets, delivering speed and paper capacity that works well for moderate-duty use in a small office.

Excellent paper capacity. Touch-screen controls. Prints, scans, copies, and faxes. Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and NFC. Prints from and scans to USB key. Prints through the cloud and from mobile devices.

Text can smudge if it gets wet.

Conclusion As a must-see alternative to the HP OfficeJet Pro 8740 All-in-One Printer, the Epson WF-5690 offers a mix of fast performance, good paper handling, and top-tier text quality for an inkjet. You might also want to consider the laser-based...

HP Officejet Pro 8740 All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

Replacing a venerable predecessor, this Officejet packs some advanced duplexing features and reasonable, if not stellar, costs per page into a solid small-office/workgroup business inkjet.

Good print, scan, and copy quality ; Relatively fast ; Reasonably competitive cost per page ; Lots of mobile features ; Relatively large input and output sources ; 50-sheet single-pass duplexing ADF ; Support for borderless printing

A bit pricey for the printer proper ; Needs XL cartridges for ideal cost per page

The Officejet Pro 8740 stems from a long line of capable HP business inkjets—from the

Nice printer, good quality prints. Need to remember to deactivate Anti-virus software when installing. I didn't first time and had issue, but it all worked fine when the drivers had installed properly.

Perfect replacement

 

I finally had to replace me old 8500 All in one. It had finally aged out. With the help of Edris Hamdard my account manager I selected the 8740 without reservation. This unit replaces with upgrades all the features I had in the 8500. Installation was...
