HP Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One

 

The HP Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One inkjet multifunction printer can print, scan, copy, fax, print through the cloud, and print directly from phones and tablets.

Automatic duplexer for two-sided printing. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct. Prints through the cloud. Prints, scans, copies, and faxes.

NFC support is highly limited.

The Brother MFC-J870DW's fast speed keeps it firmly in place as our preferred pick in this category. That said, however, the HP Officejet 5740 e-All-in-One is a strong contender. It delivers a similar level of output quality and a slightly higher paper...

HP Deskjet 5740 Printer

 

The $100 HP Deskjet 5740 is a simple, reliable inkjet printer. Though not particularly eye-catching, it produces nice-looking prints.

Good quality prints

Lacks media card slots

The 5740 comes with a USB 2.0 port for connecting it to your PC, but no parallel port. If you have a digital camera, you may be disappointed that the printer has neither a PictBridge port nor a media card slot. HP software guides you through printing...

HP Deskjet 5740

 

Documents and photos both look good when printed on this compact, easy-to-use printer.

The HP Deskjet 5740 won't win any awards for speed or economy; but for all-around print quality, it's a good little performer.

HP Deskjet 5740 Color Inkjet Printer

 

The HP Deskjet 5740 concentrates on good-looking output, but it's not too much of a slouch on speed either.

Overall output quality is at the high end of the ink jet range. Printing photos with six colors is almost as fast as with four.

Print speed is in the respectable range, but it's slower than some similarly priced printers.

HP Officejet 5740

 

A good-looking, well-specced all-in-one for the home office

Quiet when printing ; IRIS OCR included ; Novel USB and SD socket cover

Slow duplex print ; Paper tray awkward for big fingers ; Lack of touchscreen sensitivity

The HP OfficeJet 5740 is a fine all-in-one for the home office, with excellent support for mobile devices and good, if sometimes sluggish, printing. It could do with a bigger paper tray, but if you buy into Instant Ink, it can be very economical.

HP Officejet 5740 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Officejet 5740 is an all-in-one wireless printer with office as well as home printing features. It scans, copies and faxes, as well as turns out good-looking black text prints. But is it as capable when it comes to printing colour documents?...

Good Product - excedded expectatations

 

I'd recommend this product

For a Refurbished Printer it is like brand new. Print quality is good (Black & White / Color ). Every thing functions as it is supposed too.

none so far.

Great Printer!

 

Very easy to set up! Great color printing and works great with any WiFi device. Would have only wished it had a tad bit larger display. Enjoy!
