The main upgrade of the HP OfficeJet 5742 e-All-in-One inkjet printer compared to average consumer models is its automatic document feeder, which does make for much more efficient scanning. It has wireless networking support, ISO speeds of up to 12 pages per minute, and it won't break the bank when users need to replace HP 5742 printer ink supplies.
The automatic document feeder may not be large, with a capacity of 25 pages, but it does give the machine a business-centric feel. The 2.7-inch touchscreen control panel is also a nice addition, making the device much easier to use. Buyers can connect via USB or wired ethernet port, or they can connect via Wi-Fi for easy sharing with very little setup. Mobile printing is supported through Apple's AirPrint protocol, or through HP's own ePrint platform, which also allows for remote printing.
Although faxing is supported, users will probably prefer the scan-to-email method. It not only results in better quality but helps save paper and OfficeJet 5742 e-All-in-One ink in the process. Despite its varied feature set, the unit is still very compact, measuring 7.6x17.9x16.1 inches and weighing 16.9 pounds.
When printer ink needs replacing, buyers don't need to start sweating. HP 5742 printer ink cartridges are quite reasonably priced, and the standard supplies can yield around 165 pages for the tricolor supply and 200 pages for black. High-capacity OfficeJet 5742 ink cartridges are available for those who want better yields of 415 pages for tricolor and 600 pages for black. Buyers should also consider using remanufactured HP 5742 ink, which is generally less expensive than OEM versions.
For an office-centric inkjet model, the 5742 will still appeal to home users with its consumer-friendly features like Wi-Fi sharing and mobile printing support. For the very small office, however, it has the power and speed to keep up as well.
