Rated 5 out of 5 by WilburT from Definitely an asset! I would say that my HP printer has been an asset to my business. I use this printer at home to support work. The resupply of ink through the HP Instant ink program works magnificently. I would recommend this printer for anyone who has to work from their home to support another office

Rated 2 out of 5 by BreakerofChains2016 from Inhales Ink Very nice printing results, but this machine burns through ink like a 1975 Buick Special burns through oil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cascabel from Seems like a good printer so far.... Have not used this very much yet, so difficult to pass judgement. Have printed a few web pages fine. Tried faxing, and it worked fine for that. Hard to find complete instructions for faxing. Could not figure out how to fax using the built-in small control panel. Had to do it using my computer. Printer did not revert to normal printing mode on it's own after faxing. Had to figure that out myself. So far it seems to work fine, just the instructions leave out important steps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by goofy123 from No complaints at this point Very happy with the ordering and shipping experience with HP. I have no complaints at this time for my HP Officejet 5740. While I have not tried anything other than printing from the computer and copying using the scanner these functions worked well. I would probably rate this higher if I had used it more and if I had not had myriad problems with the HP309 Webprinter that this is replacing. I would like the ability to print different size pictures (not sure why).

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunshineSue73 from I like getting crossword puzzles nightly. This printer I can get daily recipes and crossword puzzles etc. It doesn't stop in mid printing and spit out the paper without being completed. I can print off my pictures from my SD card I have in my camera without putting them on the computer first.
