Easy to use
5 Star Review   By SIjoe on HP - Jun 15, 2012   

Bought this for my 87 year old Mom, and it was very easy for her to use it. She loves the one button speed dial to fax. She got confused where to put in a sheet to fax, but now she is a champ at it.

It would not send faxes and I returned the machine according to instructions from HP. They sent me a new 2140 that seems to work ok.

Disappointment in quality of 640 fax
1 Star Review   By Kuduhunter on HP - Mar 14, 2012   

I find it odd that when this 640 fax machine is on the way to be returned for poor service and lack of quality that you ask for a review on it. . This equipment is much poorer grade than all the many HP products I have purchsesd for the past 25-30 years or so.

What? No paper tray???
4 Star Review   By MsDebK on HP - Mar 7, 2012   

Although I really do like this fax overall - the setup and programming is quick and simple - it seems like a HUGE oversight to have no tray to catch the paper.

HP 640 FAX
5 Star Review   By Hyderabadi on HP - Feb 7, 2012   

I am pretty happy with thios newly installed FAX machine. This replaces my former HP 1240 FAX machine which could also copy in color. However, this is a minor point and I am prepared to overlook it. Keep up the good work, HP!

Home Use
3 Star Review   By Rhett on HP - Jan 30, 2012   

Purchased machine over 2 years for light home use. Have had no operational problems - easy to set up and use. Cons: Needs paper tray and easier to read Menu window. At the low purchase price it has been more than adequate and reliable for my needs.

not so hot
2 Star Review   By heyyouse on HP - Jan 22, 2012   

ring tone is way too soft. It's hard to hear the phone/fax ring if two to three people are talking in the same room.

good for my needs
4 Star Review   By spidergut1 on HP - Sep 18, 2011   

Since I only send very few fax'es I don't want a high end product. A cheap low cost unit would be perfect for me. As business grows I then would upgrade to a better machine and a dedicated phone line. Machine was confusing to set up but believe it was me as never had or used a fax in past. It does work as one customer sent a fax back with a signature on a contract so I know it works. My one man office and a partime worker make it for now a good choice. However if you are familiar fax user I then would consider a more advanced fax machine. As said when my business gets going more I will upgrade. It does what I want for now.

Would Not Purchase Again
1 Star Review   By films4u on HP - Sep 8, 2011   

I've only had the HP 640 Fax for less than 2 years. It has had very light use but is already not able to send faxes. I expect better from HP.

Just average
3 Star Review   By Wong on HP - Jul 28, 2011   

The old HP fax machine was easier to use. This HP 640 fax has a longer drop list in its Menu Button. This makes it more confusing for me to use. And the clock timer should be on 12 hour not 24 hour cycle. The old HP fax was on 12 hour cycle.

Had to send it back!
2 Star Review   By stlouis on HP - Jun 11, 2011   

The fax machine is easy to use. We sent many faxes during the four months we owned it. However, we had to RECEIVE a fax from the doctor's office and it would not work. Our warranty will cover a replacement. We will upgrade and pay the difference.

HP 640 Fax
3 Star Review   By OccasionalFaxer on HP - May 9, 2011   

This fax is acceptable for occasional faxing (I do mostly sending). However, I have a phone with a built-in answering machine and in order to use the fax, I have to physically disconnect the phone and then connect the fax, in order for the fax to work properly... a splitter will not work for me. Somewhat of an annoyance, but I can tolerate it since I'm only an "Occasional Faxer."

Good for home use
4 Star Review   By SueC on HP - Feb 8, 2011   

I didn't buy this for heavy duty use, only occasionally sending out faxes - but I needed to have one, and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. As a phone in my den, it is quite functional and am very happy with it. It was easy to set up, and easy to use. If you're thinking of getting a fax machine for your office, get upgraded equipment.

not for office use
2 Star Review   By cak1 on HP - Jan 22, 2011   

Bought cheapest fax machine.. not such a good idea. We have many faxes coming in and have to replace cartridge way too often. Good for a place that doesn't receive too many faxes. Sending it to my other store that only sends faxes and looking for a new fax machine at main office.

Unhappy
2 Star Review   By unhappyTexas on HP - Sep 7, 2010   

This was purchased for our office and at first we were pleased. The problems is the amount of Ink this things uses is terrible! We have already replaced it with the HP 701 cartridge 3 times and have only had the machine less than a month!

Good fax machine fits your need
3 Star Review   By member htchen76 - Jul 24, 2008   

Strengths: easy to install and use. compact and mulitfunctional.

Weakness: None for this price. But I would prefer a laser one if I have money.

It is very easy to install. I do not use fax too much and this one fits my need very well. Cheap and compact. The quality is ok. Nowdays laser all in one should be better but then will be much more expensive. so for selfuse, this one is a good choice as you can get with some discount.

Great sturdy fax machine that works well HP 640
5 Star Review   By member qshu - Jul 20, 2008   

Strengths: sturdy, clean fax, high quality, compact

This is a great fax machine that is well built, works well and has a small footprint that is ideal for home usage or even in an office. The inkjet cartridge system is better than Brother's ribbon cartridge system and for the price, this fax machine can't be beat.

HP 640
4 Star Review   By member hanjunp - Jul 14, 2008   

Strengths: fax, copy, and phone functions work well.

Weakness: it's not laser. design is somewhat outdated.

I purchased this one because my old one is dead. I thought of buying a laser all-in-one machine. However, it works well. If you can buy this one with some rebates or discount, I will recommend this one.

Hewlett Packard HP 650 Plain Paper Fax Machine
4 Star Review   By member jthejs - May 15, 2008   

Strengths: Uses Plain Paper. Clear fax and copy prints. Compact size.

The fax machine does exactly as expected for the faxing and copying functions for me. The fax and copy prints are clear. Its compact size (small footprint) is a plus. Its body seems well build and sturdy. Its button interface is standard and easy to use. The setup was very easy. It has a 16 character wide display panel. For a home or home office use, I would say this is a good buy.

Great fax machine for home office or small business
5 Star Review   By member hweng - Jan 21, 2008   

Strengths: Compact. Clear output. Have all functions that I need.

This is a great fax machine for home office or small business use. Sure, it may not be the best choice if you expect a hundred fax every day. But for occasional use, this machine is perfect. The fax quality is remarkable. All the functions are there. And it's very easy to set up.
