According to its developer, the HP EWS 2840 was intended to deliver the ultimate experience in colored LaserJet printing technology in a compact design. The device driver for the HP EWS 2840 supports the scanning, printing and faxing features of the equipment along with the feature set of printing directly a digital photograph. It is touted as a reliable but simple printing solution that makes use of electro-photographic technology. Engines that make use of laser marking methods are applied to generate the best image quality possible. The HP EWS 2840 device is also known to provide an add-on value to standard printing engines. The Canon print engine served as the prototype for earlier versions of the LaserJet printer product line. The LaserWriter however is the counterpart product of the LaserJet, wherein LaserWriter is intended for the Apple computer.
