While the HP OfficeJet 5746 e-All-in-One inkjet printer isn't the fastest in its class, it comes with a good combination of office features and home conveniences for the price. At ISO speeds of 12 pages per minute for black and 8 pages per minute for color, it's still impressive, and users won't be spending a lot on OfficeJet 5746 printer ink either, especially if they opt for high-capacity supplies.
Some of the most standout features of the 5746 include its wireless support and mobile printing. It can be easily shared on a Wi-Fi network or with a wired ethernet connection. Once shared, users can utilize the Apple AirPrint or HP ePrint platforms to send documents from their mobile devices as well as from computers. This is particularly useful for sending documents for printing remotely, as users can simply send an email to a unique address.
The unit is very easy to set up, as it weighs just less than 17 pounds, even with the HP 5746 printer ink supplies in place. It also measures just 7.6x17.9x16.1 inches, so it consumes very little space in a home or office. Paper handling includes a 25-sheet automatic document feeder for quick scanning, as well as a flatbed scanner, and the input paper tray holds up to 125 sheets. This is a bit limiting for busier small offices, but should suffice for most home users.
The standard HP 5746 ink cartridges are the most affordable, with the tricolor supply providing around 165 pages and the black supply providing around 200 pages. High-capacity OfficeJet 5746 ink cartridges are more expensive upfront, but provide a lower cost per page, with yields of 415 and 600 pages, respectively. Users looking to save even more should consider remanufactured HP 5746 ink supplies instead of more costly OEM versions.
Overall, the 5746 inkjet may be a bit better suited to the home office than a small office at a business. Its limited paper capacity and somewhat slower speeds won't slow down home users as much, and they will appreciate its low price point. Business users, however, will likely need a model with a bit more muscle.
