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 multi-function printer (MFP) is almost identical in most ways to the Epson WorkForce WF-2530 that I recently reviewed. Both models are best understood as personal MFPs for any size office and both offer essentially the same...

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)

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 inkjet MFP is small enough to share a desk with but can also connect to a wired or wireless network for easy sharing in a home or micro office.

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 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...

"Worthless garbage"

 

This product is a waste of my time to even write about. Long story short; Don't buy this product and look for a more responsible company that builds a better product and stands behind it. Epson does not! I'm unclear as to how the reviewer gave this 8...

"uses up lots of ink, then clogs, then dies"

 

It seemed like such a good deal at the time. But it uses lots of ink, which I guess all ink jet printers have in common. But then when it became hopelessly clogged and I removed the print head assembly to clean it, upon reassembly it started up, did a...

"Great features for price. Designed to make you buy expensive ink. Don't purchase."

 

I'm a graphic designer so I'm aware of the difference price makes regarding quality and durability. I use the scanner and fax features mostly. Wireless printing is great. However... the printing... OMG! The quality is fine. I use it when I have to do...

Good feature set for price.

Very poor ink jets. Dry up easily. Terrible seals. Drain so fast, printer is not practical.
