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

Has my desired additional features

 

This unit is an upgrade from my HP 6978 that still runs just fine. The 8740 has one-pass, dual-sided scanning and two paper trays that I use for regular and legal sized paper. My 6978 does dual-side scanning but that is handled by the document handler...

Replaced My HP 8620 All IN One Easily

 

Printer worked fairly easy right out of the box. Had to plug in cables then shut everything down and bring it back up to find the Proper I.P. address. The rest of it was just loading the software and teaching Devices how to use the wireless air print...

Excellent replacement for my Officejet Pro L7590

 

Ij previously had an HP Officejet Pro L7590 All-In-One. It provided me with great service for 9-1/2 years. However, when it finally needed repairing, I chose to put the money into a new 8740. Definitely glad I did. The 8740 works great, and would...

Meaningful improvements on the 8600 series.

 

This printer is an updated model of the 8600 series. I bought it to replace a several-year-old 8600 series printer whose automatic feeder was failing. While I was annoyed by the failure, the old printer had provided good service for a long while. The...

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...
