Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has my desired additional features This unit is an upgrade from my HP 6978 that still runs just fine. The 8740 has one-pass, dual-sided scanning and two paper trays that I use for regular and legal sized paper. My 6978 does dual-side scanning but that is handled by the document handler so it takes additional time. It also has only one paper tray. The 8740 is an improvement and is worth the cost to me. Functionality is very good as is print quality and speed. The larger screen is helpful. The unit is not small. Probably the same footprint as the 6978 but it is quite a bit taller. The stacker trays are not huge so you do need to keep an eye on the output if you are printing a long document. The desktop software will allow you to create shortcuts for common functions but I have not yet found a way to transfer that shortcut to the printer screen. That would be very handy. But, for most functions, I don't need to bother with the computer. I can simply walk to the printer, insert the document, scan it to the computer - all in one process - without dealing with the computer. That's a plus. I use the Instant Ink program and find that worth the cost - no more trips to the office supply store plus I get "official" HP ink. Convenience is worth the price. All in all, I like the unit. It seems sturdy enough and has been reliable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer. Easiest to use. I’d order this printer every time I needed one and have already recommended it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced My HP 8620 All IN One Easily Printer worked fairly easy right out of the box. Had to plug in cables then shut everything down and bring it back up to find the Proper I.P. address. The rest of it was just loading the software and teaching Devices how to use the wireless air print Capabilities. Last printer HP8620 had a tray that had to be extended to catch printed pages otherwise would fall on floor. The 8740 feeds printed pages back onto itself with out having to pull out an extension. The Automatic document feeder works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for my Officejet Pro L7590 Ij previously had an HP Officejet Pro L7590 All-In-One. It provided me with great service for 9-1/2 years. However, when it finally needed repairing, I chose to put the money into a new 8740. Definitely glad I did. The 8740 works great, and would recommend to anyone looking to replace an older unit or just buying a printer for the first time.
Date published: 2018-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meaningful improvements on the 8600 series. This printer is an updated model of the 8600 series. I bought it to replace a several-year-old 8600 series printer whose automatic feeder was failing. While I was annoyed by the failure, the old printer had provided good service for a long while. The 8740 has a better footprint. It is slightly smaller and no longer has the awkward paper handling cartridge sticking out the back, which allows it to fit into spaces more easily. The paper path in changed significantly with a noticeable speed improvement. A larger control panel is a plus. Much easier access to print cartridges is good, but changing the cartridge number obsoleted my cartridge inventory which is a normal lousy HP practice. Overall, it is still an excellent high-end printer at a reasonable price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Printer I love this printer. It is fast and I love the extra drawer for legal size paper.

Last printer HP8620 had a tray that had to be extended to catch printed pages otherwise would fall on floor. The 8740 feeds printed pages back onto itself with out having to pull out an extension. The Automatic document feeder works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent replacement for my Officejet Pro L7590 Ij previously had an HP Officejet Pro L7590 All-In-One. It provided me with great service for 9-1/2 years. However, when it finally needed repairing, I chose to put the money into a new 8740. Definitely glad I did. The 8740 works great, and would recommend to anyone looking to replace an older unit or just buying a printer for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meaningful improvements on the 8600 series. This printer is an updated model of the 8600 series. I bought it to replace a several-year-old 8600 series printer whose automatic feeder was failing. While I was annoyed by the failure, the old printer had provided good service for a long while. The 8740 has a better footprint. It is slightly smaller and no longer has the awkward paper handling cartridge sticking out the back, which allows it to fit into spaces more easily. The paper path in changed significantly with a noticeable speed improvement. A larger control panel is a plus. Much easier access to print cartridges is good, but changing the cartridge number obsoleted my cartridge inventory which is a normal lousy HP practice. Overall, it is still an excellent high-end printer at a reasonable price point.
