The HP Officejet J5740 All-in-One printer/scanner/copier/fax is a multi-purpose device that uses thermal inkjet technology for printing. The product is of compact design; its dimensions are 20.3 x 18.0 x 9.3 in and it weighs 18.8 lbs. The size and weight are slightly on the higher side when compared to other Officejet printers from Hewlett Packard. It has a maximum printing speed of 30 ppm for monochromatic drafts and 24 ppm for color draft prints. Print resolution for black and white printouts is up to 1200 dpi. Paper input for printing is via a built-in 100-page input tray. The output tray has a pull-out arm which helps you control longer sheets. The recommended monthly duty cycle is of up to 3000 pages.
There is no ethernet connectivity which means the device works as a stand-alone machine unless connected to HP Jetdirect external print servers. There are no media card slots to support direct printing. External IO ports include one USB, one phone, and one extension phone port. Media types supported include cards, labels, envelopes, photo paper, iron-on transfers, plain paper, transparencies but not banners and greeting cards.
An automatic document feeder with a capacity for holding 35 letter-sized sheets feeds the scanner. The maximum scan size of the flatbed front-panel scanner is 215.9 x 297 mm or A4-sized documents. The scanner takes around 36 seconds for a grayscale scan of an A4 page which is on the slower side as compared to other multipurpose printers.
The digital copier features up to 100 copies at the maximum. It scales from 25% to 200% and allows fit-to-page copying. The copier churns out 30 and 24 copies per minute for monochrome and color copies, respectively.
The fax component offers a best monochrome resolution of 300 x 300 dpi. The device supports color faxing and interfaces with the PC; however it does not have remote retrieval capability. It offers a fax memory of up to 100 pages and speed dialing for a maximum of 110 numbers.
The control panel may appear a little cramped but is well-organized. There are dedicated buttons for common commands such as start, redial, speed dial, and size management for copying. Obtaining replacement inkjet cartridges for the Officejet J5740 is easy. The HP 74 Black Inkjet Print Cartridge and the HP 75 Tri-color Inkjet Print Cartridge are ideal ink cartridges for everyday printing use.
In conclusion, it can be said that the HP Officejet J5740 All-in-One is a middle-of-the-road machine suitable for the home-office user or a small office setting.
