Review: Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Printer

 

The WorkForce WF-2540 color inkjet multifunction has some nice features and good output quality, but ink costs are high, and it slows considerably when scanning, or when printing at higher-quality settings.

Very good output quality ; Full connectivity (USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet)

Ink is expensive ; Slow scan speeds and higher-quality print speeds

Epson WorkForce WF-2540

 

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 offers office-oriented features and network support in a personal inkjet MFP.

Prints, faxes, scans, and copies. Automatic document feeder. Wi-Fi. Ethernet. Prints though cloud.

Low paper capacity. No manual feed tray. No duplexer (for automatic two-sided printing).

Epson WorkForce WF-2540 review

 

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 offers a selection of useful features to keep your office productive, but the top-loading auto-document feeder, cloud printing access, LCD screen, and Wi-Fi connectivity aren't the main features that should convince you to...

An external USB port on the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 gives standalone copying and scanning functionality on top of standard printing duties, and Epson's cloud printing suite adds remote printing capability.

The printer ships with small capacity "starter" ink cartridges, and the flimsy plastic hinge on the scanner doesn't inspire confidence in its long-term durability.

Cloud access, Wi-Fi connectivity, and an external USB port in addition to the company's mobile printing app make the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 a good fit for smaller work-groups and start-ups with moderate printing needs.

Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Printer Review

 

With its document feeder, dedicated fax buttons and Ethernet port, the Epson WF-2540 has a number of important capabilities that small and home office users will appreciate. Unfortunately, slow performance and mediocre photo prints hold it back. For...

Dedicated faxing functions ; Document feeder ; Ethernet connectivity ; Affordable price

Very slow prints, scans and copies ; Mediocre photo quality ; No touch-screen LCD ; High ink cost

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 offers a bevy of business-friendly features, but slow print and scan speeds hold it back.

Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This inexpensive AIO inkjet has excellent print quality and a nice, compact design, but it operates slowly, and the per-page cost is high. It works well as a supplementary printer for occasional use, or for households that print only sporadically.

Excellent print quality ; Very compact for an AIO ; Supports printing from smartphones and tablets ; Built-in ADF

Costly ink ; Slower-than-average print, copy, scan speeds

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 certainly has its strong points. We were impressed with its compact design and connectivity options, which include USB, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet interfaces, as well as wide support for popular smartphones and tablets. Best of...

Epson WorkForce WF-2540 review

 

Setting up the Epson WorkForce WF-2540 inkjet printer is a breeze. With USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi all on board, you're free to attach it to a PC or network in any location you wish. The WF-2540's smallish non-operational footprint: 392x377x221mm also...

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Printer is attractively priced, and the triple USB/Ethernet/Wi-Fi connectivity is appealing, but taken as a whole - Epson missed the mark with this one. Ink costs are high, and photo output is slothful and then...

Absolute Junk

 

Horrible print quality. Heads need to be cleaned once a day. Drinks ink like there is no tomorrow. Lastly the absolute scam ---->Will not print black only if color cartridges are out.

The only positive think is knowing I will never support Epson again.

WAY too to list.

Never know when it will print

 

I have so many issues producing a quality printout, it's very frustrating and time consuming.

Head Cleaning and Nozzle alignment all the time
