andrew: There seems to be multiple problems with the HP website
That! is putting it mildly...'-}}

When I had looked at the Officejet 5740 specs earlier, it stated that it had an ADF but in the comparison specs, it didn't--as far as I can tell, none of the 57xx line has ADF at least when using the master Officejet AIO page. I think the idea of watching some videos is a good one and speaking of videos, there are 5 of them on MicroCenter's OfficeJet 5740 "Overview" page.

Be aware that the HP-Instant-Ink (aka: e-ink) option can be very tricky! From reading reviews at amazon about this printer, one reviewer wrote that when s/he decided to back out of the e-ink program apparently the printer became non-functional. Personally, from the (admittedly) little bit I've read about the program, it's extremely creepy in that the printer is basically always talking to HP and who knows what it's telling HP.

I'd rather just buy my own inkcarts thankyouverymuch!

Also, apparently it's possible to install the drivers for the printer using a cell-phone but from the descriptions of this process, that approach is also to be avoided at all costs because it requires you to create an HP account and in the end doesn't work properly...
