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

Good quality prints but extremely slow!

  • 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

Not for Macs

  • Summary: This is supposed to be an "All in One" machine, but is no longer supported on Macs. It would appear that HP do not bother to update AIO drivers for Macs once they stop manufacture, whereas Windows support is much better. However, you can use the print and copy function on Macs. I am using the generic CUPS printer drivers - which appear better at "waking" the machine from sleep.

  • Summary: Na nog geen drie jaar in gebruik was het niet mogelijk de software voor Windows 7 te installeren. Daardoor was de scanfunctie onbruikbaar geworden. Een jaar later heb ik de printer maar weggegeven. Vele van deze printers werden (klein) zakelijk gebruikt en functioneerden tot tevredenheid. HP zou zich moeten schamen voor zo'n tekortkoming. Het bedrijf laat gebruikers bewust in de kou staan.
  • Pros: Overall goede kwaliteit
  • Cons: Update noodzakelijke software niet verkrijgbaar

  • Summary: das gerät erfüllt die gewünschten funktionen ohne schwierigkeiten. die bedienbarkeit des gerätes sind einfach und verständlich. die druckqualität ist auch mit "gut" zu bewerten. also um es kurz zu machen qualitativ und preis leistung passen. ABER WAS TOTAL STÖREND IST, DAS TEIL IST LAUT; LAUT UND NOCHMALS LAUT: HAT MAN ALSO KEINEN SEPERATEN DRUCKERRAUM KANN ICH DAS GERÄT NICHT EMPFEHLEN. OB BEIM DRUCHKEN ODER NACH DEM EINSCHALTEN INKL.

2840 Alleskönner oder Mogelpackung?

Melonum, Ciao

  • Summary: Ich habe den 2840 nun seit 14 Tagen in Benutzung - oder besser gesagt - er wartet auf die Benutzung, da das Gerät nicht will.... In Kürze gesagt: - nach dem Auspacken war der Scanner hin, wurde jedoch nach 2 Tagen von hp ausgetauscht, das Problem tritt scheinbar nicht besonders häufig, aber doch immer wieder auf. Wenn die Garantie abgelaufen ist, dann wird die Sache mit ca. 300 € Reparaturkosten sehr teuer - die Software braucht ca.
  • Pros: Preis / Lieferumfang / Druckqualität
  • Cons: Miserable Software / Schlechter Einzugscanner

  • Summary: "Aooo ma lo sai che alla sede nuova hanno messo due stampanti di rete laser a colori che fanno anche da scanner e da fax?" Io: "Noo non ci posso credere qui dove c'è, l'amministrazione andiamo avanti con delle stampantine da piccolo/medio ufficio, delle fotocopiatrici del 15/18 e un fax peggiore di quello di casa mia e là dove si fa solo vendita e assistenza mettiamo il fior fiore della tecnologia!
  • Pros: a colori  -  fax  -  scanner
  • Cons: Lenta, rumorosa, ingombrante e consuma !
