Not great

sharon2893, Ebay

  • Summary: the printer does work, however, there was black ink everywhere. I don't know where it was coming from as there were no cartridges in it. It was quite a mess even getting on the carpet in my office. I really didn't think it was going to work but it does.

  • Summary: This printer is a real workhorse, the one I had finally gave out and was in deperate need to replace it without upgrading my operating system. The software was already in my computer...so all I did was plug it in. I'm going to get another one for a back-up....(Thanks EBay)

Excellent Printer

  • Summary: We bought this printer because our other one finally broke down. We really loved our HP 840c, It is a real work horse. We had our other one for maybe 10 or 15 years and it gave us such good quality printing and kept on going.

  • Summary: This printer model does not exist. The seller misrepresented the item they were selling, and then added a stock photo of a printer that did not have clear details. Do not buy this product, no such printer exists!

  • Excerpt: My family have had the HP DeskJet for more than 10 years now and it has been through a huge amount of printing, either black and white or colour, and it is still working fine. We only got the printer, I do not know why there is also a scanner on the photo since you could buy just the printer back...

  • Excerpt: Prior to purchasing my own Hewlett Packard DeskJet 840C I ran a DeskJet 693C with an older computer and was thoroughly impressed with it. When it came to choosing a new printer to take to University with me I once again opted for a Hewlett Packard product and am not sorry I did.

  • Excerpt: This is one of the best Deskjet printers that HP has ever made. OK, it is not state of the art printing for nowadays, but I have customers that still have this printer in good working order after many years of duty. If you can get hold of a new one, buy it.

  • Excerpt: I trust HP so when I needed a new printer the 840C was a natural choice, being the latest at the time. It has been great!! Never any problems, perfect text and beautiful photos. The cartridges last a long time, giving super results. Would recommend this printer to anyone.
