The HP Office Jet Pro 7740 offers a potent combination of high speed, excellent output quality, generous paper capacity, a good range of connection choices, and most of all, the ability to print on paper up to tabloid size.
The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 is a hefty all-in-one inkjet that can handle printing, copying, and scanning documents up to 11 by 17 inches, and can fax letter-size documents as well.
The 7740 is large and heavy, measuring 15.1 by 23 by 18 inches (HWD) and weighing 42.9 pounds, so it’s best kept on a table or bench of its own and moved by two people. Its standard paper capacity is 500 sheets of up to tabloid-size (11-by-17) paper, split between two 250-sheet trays. It has a maximum monthly duty cycle of 30,000 pages and a recommended monthly duty cycle of up to 1,500 sheets. It includes an auto-duplexer for two-sided printing.
On top of the 7740 are a flatbed, which can scan paper up to legal size, and a 35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF) that supports single-pass duplex scanning. The Brother MFC-J5720DW has a larger (50-sheet) ADF and a similar duplex scanner. It’s easy to navigate by using the 7740’s 2.6-inch color touch screen, which is surrounded by a touch-sensitive border. Below the display is a port for a USB thumb drive.
