Not so good on an Apple

Art Printing, Amazon
6 September 2010
  • Summary: I thought the software was crappy because this was being used on an Apple. However, after reading the other reviews, maybe its just plain lousy. The setup looks cracker jack (which is surprising for such an expensive printer).

Finally the fax!

Chip, pcRUSH.com

  • 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.
  • Pros: Durable Construction
  • Cons: Hard Setup, Slow Operation

Good quality prints but extremely slow!

Semi, pcRUSH.com

  • 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.
  • Pros: High-Detail Printing
  • Cons: Hard to program features, Jams - unclear error, Slow

Disappointed in this product

Linda Moya, Amazon
12 June 2005
  • Summary: I wished I had read more of the user reviews prior to purchasing this product. It prints a nice page, scans images, and can send a fax, but so could my HP Laserjet3200 before it was time to upgrade. This printer is certainly much faster than my older HP.

Will not work with Win2000 Server

Raymond W. Ke, Amazon
12 June 2005
  • Summary: Printer works OK so far. It is slow and loud but output is excellent. Installation over network for WinXP and 2000 workstations is straightforward. But be aware that this printer will NOT work with Win2000 Server. The printer can not even be found over the network from Win2000 Server.

Printer OK, Scanner is very network un-friendly

Issac James, Amazon
12 June 2005
  • Summary: If all you want is a printer, this unit is OK, but don't buy an HP2840 if you expect network friendly scanning functionality. The scan function is heavily dependent on software running on a PC.

Fine hardware - beware the software

Just Bob, Amazon
12 June 2005
  • Summary: Buying this printer is what one gets when one doesn't do the research. It has a great marketing line, but the devil is in the details. Expect high quality printing from this rather large and foreboding device. Used as a stand alone printer/copier/fax, it will do the job well for quite some time.

Expensive toner, paper prints crooked, fax & scan fails

BuyBid, Amazon
11 June 2005
  • Summary: I purchased one and it seemed to work well out of the box. I found that though it is lan ready the scan over the lan is lower quality then with the usb. kinda defeats the ethernet ability i got it for Old files to be scanned and saved to DVDs; slower scanning = more time spent.
