Nice quality prints. Printer needed adjustment before it would function.

Summary: I didn't have the same installation problems others seemed to have, but the printer kept rejecting cartridges and it took a while to figure out why. It turns out there was a gear misalignment that was throwing errors.
Summary: I bought this printer in 2006. The noises are accurate, as this product does calibrate a lot. It also has issues with Windows 7, but I just downloaded the drivers and it seemed fine. Like others, I added memory and it printed fine. It printed in nice quality - and served me well.

Summary: I've been flogging my 2840 since that model first came out, several years ago. It has required NO service, except for toner, for which it has a hearty appetite. (Word to the wise: Use only HP toner. If you don't you'll get bitten someday.
Summary: We had no problems installing the printer on our network (Windows SBS Server 2000) or installing the management software on my PC. The printer works well for the our usage. There is newer technology available. But if you can get a discounted price, the printer works well.
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.
Pros: Durable Construction, Fast Operation, Reliable
Summary: I just got this printer today. I don't use a network so I don't know anything about some of the issues some people have stated. I plugged it into my MAC it recognized it and I printed my first document seconds later. No software needed. The copier works well. I have not tried the scanner.
Somewhat noisy and quirky, but excellent quality prints and easy installation.

Summary: The HP Color LaserJet 2840 is everything I hoped it would be, aside from being kind of loud when it prints. The plastic casing of the product is bordering on flimsy...I guess I will find out after several months if this thing is going to rattle itself apart. Print/copy quality is fantastic.

Summary: The Automatic Document Feeder did not work on the machine when I got it. I called HP Technical Support. They sent me a new ADF to install. New one didn't work. A Technician came to fix the problem which was in the circuit board. Everyone I talked to at HP were very nice and service was fast.
Who needs the stupid stock software? Don't use it! Typical HP printer really, but good quality prints.

Summary: I have no problem with the software because I don't use it. Linux detected the printer automatically when both directly hooked up and even over the network, and I have no problem configuring the print jobs to look exactly how I want when I go to print some document or page.
