A+ Printer - Highly reccomend
By AliciaVerified Reviewer from San Jose, CA on 10/22/2008
Pros:
Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Best Uses:
Workgroups
Describe Yourself:
Heavy Duty User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We are a growing company and my boss asked me to do some research on all in ones to see which one would be the best fit for the office to add as an additional machine. After many hours of researching all of them I came to the conclusion that this one is the best for the money. [...] very easy to set up. It was also pretty simple to train all of the employees on how to use it. It works very well under pressure and I have not had one single issue with it as of yet! Now that is something that you don’t just hear any Secretary saying so I highly recommend it!

 
Call it the Workhorse!
By BlairVerified Reviewer from New Jersey on 10/12/2008
Pros:
Durable Construction, Fast Operation, Reliable
Cons:
Hard Setup, Jams Easily
Best Uses:
Graphics & Charts, Professional Documents
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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. The quality of the graphics it prints has truly made our presentations look professional and the speed of printing has made things much easier in terms of getting work done efficiently. I like it!

 
Poorer Performance As A Color Laser
By SimrnVerified Reviewer from CA on 10/11/2008
Pros:
Compact Design, Durable Construction, Easy Setup
Cons:
Slow Operation
Best Uses:
Professional Documents
Describe Yourself:
Heavy Duty User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When you compare the 2840 with the 2550L, you'll find a lot more in terms of enhanced features i.e. 50-page ADF, the capability to scan across a network, and the capacity both to fax from your PC and to use the unit as a separate fax machine as well as color copier. You can have memory card slots for printing pictures directly. But its performance doesn't match its specification set: It gave a poorer performance on our tests as compared with some ink jets. It clocked full 43 minutes 19 seconds, running a maximum 8.2 ppm on our 50-page colorless text file. That's considerably slower in comparison to any color laser we've tested besides the HP 2550L.

 
Not worth the headache
By Tech EnthusiastVerified Reviewer from NY on 10/10/2008
Pros:
Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Cons:
Jams Easily, Slow Operation, Unreliable
Best Uses:
Dorm Room
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I set it up as a network install, and the physical installation of the machine was easy. The printer is noisy and runs like a pickup truck before its starts printing- It simply doesn't print PDF files as consecutive pages in a document, it treats each page as a separate file taking over 30 minutes to print 30 pages. You probably won't really need a printer with 5 memory card slots, color and extra fringes. Next time I am going to get a basic black and white model that does these primary functions very well. Though it's capable of producing quality prints, the 2840's problems cripple its print performance making it unsuitable for demanding environments. The media card slots and the extensive image software make the 2840 attractive for offices that print lots of photos, but its pokiness may cause you to steer clear.

 
Finally the fax!
By ChipVerified Reviewer from New York, NY on 6/9/2008
Pros:
Durable Construction
Cons:
Hard Setup, Slow Operation
Best Uses:
Professional Documents
Describe Yourself:
Frequent User
Primary use:
Business
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Upgraded to this model because of the fax functions. A color laser that has great quality. Comes with the toners and everything. Don't remember if it came with a printer cable, but we had so much of those laying around anyhow. It was a bother to setup, but once it was running, we were relieved. If only it printed faster, but hey, for the price it will do.
