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

 

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...

"Scam by Epson"

 

Stop with the ink scam tactics, its getting old.

very cheap

Printer designed to require color ink, even when printing black only.

Consumer review by:

"Terrible waste of money and space"

 

Avoid purchasing this printer unless you are quite wealthy and can afford to stock up on ink to clean the heads. I found it cheaper and more effective to print to a third party and drive to pick up my printouts. This has been one of the most...

Scans ok.

Will not print anything if one cartridge is empty.

"Do yourself a huge favor and stay CLEAR of Epson!!!"

 

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE!!!!! EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!

1. It works fine when you pull it out of the box.

1. Problems start almost immediately.

"Junk !!! Junk !!!Junk !!!Junk !!!Junk !!!"

 

It is Junk

CheapCheapCheapCheapCheapCheapCheap

Uses ink like a sponge does water. WHEN it breaks, it cannot be fixed. It is, by true definition, JUNK

Consumer review by:

"I was going to buy either Epson WF2520 or WF2540"

 

They need to work on fixing the printers so they won't use so much ink. Put in better hinges.

Look's like a good price for the Epson WF2520 or WF2540.

Cost to much to run because of the ink and cheap hinges.

"more ink is spent cleaning the heads than printing"

 

I use my at home printer about 1-2 times a month. Such infrequent use means that the nozzles become clogged; therefore, most times printer head cleanings are needed. It got to the point that a new black ink cartridge would not print. At this time, I am...

convenient that prints, scans and copies

more ink (and money) spent on cleaning heads than printing
