Most offices have more business machines than they would like. Almost every office needs a copier, and many offices use multiple machines to support their multiple users. Now, the choice of equipment can be easier with the HP LaserJet 2840 color laser toner printer. It combines the multifunction features of a copier, scanner, and fax with solid printing functions and excellent quality. If you do not need multifunction capabilities, the LaserJet 4000 toner printer should be considered.
Along with its array of standard features, the HP 2840 color laser printer includes some nice conveniences as well. The unit is network ready with its included Ethernet port, allowing it to be shared across the network, not only for network printing, but for scanning and faxing across the network. Digital memory card slots are included (supporting all major formats), a feature not often seen on a business machine, which allows users to print photos and documents directly from memory cards without the need for a PC. The automatic document feeder can scan up to 50 pages directly to a network folder on a remote PC. There is also a flatbed scanner for items that won't fit in the automatic feeder. Also included is Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software which converts scanned documents into text files to make them editable and searchable. Those looking to archive boxes worth of documents and make them searchable will find this a very welcome feature.
Print quality is excellent due to the innovative HP toners that provide sharp text and good graphics print quality. Print speed is average, at about 12 pages per minute in black and around 2.5 pages per minute in color. Multifunction units tend to have slower printing speeds than dedicated laser printers, usually a cost saving measure. HP LaserJet 2840 toner cartridges have a moderate page yield of 4,100 pages per color laser toner cartridge and 5,100 pages per black printer toner cartridge. To save even more money with this unit, the user could purchase compatible HP 2840 toner cartridges from third-party sellers. Compatible HP LaserJet toner cartridges are of equivalent quality to the genuine, OEM HP toner.
Lastly, the unit comes with Toolbox software, which manages all the settings and functions of the unit, and can be accessed from any computer on the network. This software manages all the scanning, printing, and faxing functions in a very intuitive way and even integrates with email and other software to make most tasks seamless and simple.
Overall, the HP LaserJet 2840 is a great option for an office looking to replace multiple business machines with one affordable unit that can get the job done and uses a high-grade printer toner cartridge. The included features like digital memory card slots and an automatic feed scanner are just icing on the cake of an already impressive machine.
