HP Deskjet 5740 Color Inkjet Printer

PC Magazine
13 October 2004
  • Conclusion: The HP Deskjet 5740 isn't the fastest printer for the price, but more important, it provides a far better than usual output quality for a standard ink jet, with both graphics and photos ranking just short of excellent.
  • Pros: Overall output quality is at the high end of the ink jet range. Printing photos with six colors is almost as fast as with four.
  • Cons: Print speed is in the respectable range, but it's slower than some similarly priced printers.

HEWLETT-PACKARD DeskJet 5740 review

18 February 2005
  • Excerpt: Unlike the two cheaper DeskJets here, the 5740 uses HP's newer generation ink cartridges. These were released in August 2004, and compared to their predecessors they have more ink nozzles spread over a larger area. HP says they contain a different ink formulation, but print quality seems largely unchanged from the older supplies. Print speeds have undoubtedly improved, particularly on printers that use the high-capacity #339 black cartridge.
