HP Officejet 5740 e-All-In-One in More Detail

Providing print, copy, scan and fax functionality in one small and intuitive printer, the Officejet 5740 from HP is the compact multifunction printer designed for home and small office use. With wireless and Ethernet connectivity as standard, the printer can be used in tandem with a wide range of mobile devices as well as laptop and desktop printers.

Laser-Quality Printing

Despite the small build of the printer and wide range of functions, the laser-quality prints of the Officejet 5740 offer professional-standard clarity. Capturing the nuances and subtleties of tone, the printer can be used to create photo-realistic prints. Supporting high-yield ink cartridges from HP, the printer can produce a high quantity of lab-quality prints with fewer interventions and replacements.

OneTouch Functionality

The Officejet 5740 supports simplified printing and editing from the control panel of the printer. The clear colour screen gives the user greater control over their print jobs and requirements – as well as simplifying copying and scanning responsibilities. The wireless and mobile printing capabilities can help simplify the process of printing on the go – helping utilise the printer’s full range of functions from a greater number of devices.

Compact Design

Perfect for home and small office use, the printer measures in at just 17.87x16.14x7.6 inches in size. Furthermore, the small weight of 16.91lb means that moving the printer is a quick and simple task.

  • Roger Bourne 02 February 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Superb Customer Service

    Ordered at 16:30 hours on Monday and printer was delivered at 10:00 following morning. Website is very clear and prices are extremely competative. Printer was reasonably easy to set up ( I am not very computer wise). Have not yet used it at the moment, but it appears to do everything it says on the box., and printing in colour and black and white is very sharp. Superb customer service

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.
