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...

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...

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...
