A+ Printer - Highly reccomend

  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: We are a growing company and my boss asked me to do some research on all in ones to see which one would be the best fit for the office to add as an additional machine. After many hours of researching all of them I came to the conclusion that this one is the best for the money. [...] very easy to set up. It was also pretty simple to train all of the employees on how to use it.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use

Call it the Workhorse!

  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: Overall, you can't go wrong with this printer in the office. We had some trouble getting it set up and there has been off and on a problem with paper jams, but as compared to other printers, this problem has been much less. The quality of the graphics it prints has truly made our presentations look professional and the speed of printing has made things much easier in terms of getting work done efficiently. I like it!
  • Pros: Durable Construction, Fast Operation, Reliable

Finally the fax!

  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: Upgraded to this model because of the fax functions. A color laser that has great quality. Comes with the toners and everything. Don't remember if it came with a printer cable, but we had so much of those laying around anyhow. It was a bother to setup, but once it was running, we were relieved. If only it printed faster, but hey, for the price it will do.
  • Pros: Durable Construction
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Slow Operation

Difficult to get set up

Abi, pcRUSH.com
25 May 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: This printer was extremely difficult to install. It took almost an hour to get working and be viable on the network here and this was after a lot of fiddling around. It seems that HP use their own installation setup and not a normal Windows setup routine. After we finally got it running we were very disappointed to discover that the printer is very loud and makes weird noises even of its own accord.
  • Pros: Durable Construction, Fast Operation
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Noisy

It's an OK printer...

Chris, pcRUSH.com
22 May 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: This printer wasn't exactly what I had expected. It was an all right printer - it got the job done; however, it was a bit slow, and it a bit too bulky. It was somewhat hard to work/program, and it seemed to jam pretty easily. I wouldn't recommend buying this product over others on the market today..

Avoid it

Accidental IT Guy, pcRUSH.com

  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: The management software is a huge resource hog and the device is very slow and unreliable. The print cartridges have a habit of wanting to be changed every few days - wiggling them around makes them work again. The drum wore out after only 2 months of moderate use (about 7,000 pages). There are MUCH better machines out there for the money.
  • Pros: Durable Construction
  • Cons: Hard To Use, Slow Operation, Unreliable

Good quality prints but extremely slow!

Semi, pcRUSH.com
1 June 2006
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2840: It looks great and has promising features, but it took us a while to figure out how to program the scanner and the fax functions. Also, the printer is very slow - it takes forever to print graphic heavy pages, as well as plain black print. Once in a while, it stops working because of an error and we cannot figure out what it is. Therefore, I find it unreliable since I can't print anything quickly or depend on it working properly.
  • Pros: High-Detail Printing
  • Cons: Hard to program features, Jams - unclear error, Slow
