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

Overall, very good multipurpose machine.

 

Overall, very good multipurpose machine. 1 exception is getting the machine to remember which tray has envelopes and the plain paper, even after setting up the preferences via different windows. Bottom line: I will keep it.

Still issues that remain unresolved

 

We bought an earlier version of this same printer many years ago. We were happy with its performance, but there were issues with the printer's use via a wireless network on both PCs and Macs. When it came time to replace the old printer, we did some...

Outstanding Product

 

I believe this printer to be an outstanding product. It prints much quicker and the picture and printing quality is very good. I also like the design of the machine, in particular that both trays are "tucked away" to include the one that houses the...

Printer colors

 

I would have purchased a black or gray model if available, white is last on my favorite list and does not blend in with the colors of my other office equipment. When will a black or gray option be available?

Best HP printer ever!

 

I bought this to replace my 8600 Pro - which was my second of that model. The 8740 is SO much faster in duplex printing! I also love the photo enlargement and reduction. This printer is an absolute delight. And I love the move from black to white or...
