In the HP Officejet 5740 it has two cartridges that form a unit with the print head. The manufacturer itself recommends the multifunction printer for a monthly throughput of 300 to 400 pages. When we use the cartridges in the test, it is noticeable that the cartridge suspension is designed rather shaky. There’s also little room for the cartridges to click into place.

This speaks against frequent cartridge changes. If we use XL variants of the ink cartridges, the page prices are 4.8 cents for the black and white sheet and 7.2 cents for the colored sheet. This isn’t exactly cheap for the next page. The cartridges have an ISO range of 600 black and white and 415 color pages. The HP Officejet 5740 prints, scans, copies and faxes.

In addition to USB, the combination printer comes with an Ethernet port, WLAN, Wi-Fi Direct and NFC. It offers many opportunities to get in touch with him. There is also an SD memory card slot and a USB host connection. He masters mobile printing in addition to the direct connection via NFC via HP ePrint and AppleAirprint.

Operation is facilitated by a touch screen that has a somewhat tough pressure point. The paper tray holds up to 125 sheets. There is also an additional photo pocket for up to 15 photo papers. Thanks to the built-in duplex unit, the HP Officejet 5740 automatically prints the front and back of a sheet.

However, the All-In-One cannot scan or copy on both sides. For this, the HP model has an automatic document feeder, which can hold up to 25 sheets. The multifunction device HP Officejet 5740 is ideal for the home or small home office.

However, the mediocre operating speed contradicts an excessive demand for printing, scanning and copying. Those who choose this combination model can consider the Instant Ink ink delivery service if they actually request regular print volumes.

The HP Officejet 5740 doesn’t run too fast for a multifunction device intended for the home office. In general, it only achieves sufficient results – regardless of the discipline. The device takes a very long time for the preview scan at 21 seconds.

The current value is almost equivalent to a color scan – a phenomenon we have already seen with many HP multifunction devices.
