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: Epson's latest all-in-one outdistances the competition

 

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...

"Glug Glug Glug goes the ink"

 

It might seem like a good deal at first, but then about $700-$800 in ink later. Not so great. Needs refill of colors when all I needed was B/W sometimes.

inexpensive

eats ink, quality very poor

"I got the dry ink blues..."

 

I'm going to start with this. I looked at all kinds of reviews before buying this, and at the time could not find ONE BAD REVIEW. That includes CNET! CNET still has another page with a good review of this thing. My only problem so far is the dry ink...

Convenient in theory

Dry ink when not used is not funny

"Worst Printer I've ever owned"

 

I have always bought HP MFP's that usually last me about six to seven years, and have long life on the ink cartridge if you by the high yield. I was in need of replacing my old HP, and saw the specs on this printer and decided to buy it... BIG...

Nothing

It's an ink scam

"Don't buy this "

 

This printer is now sitting in a heap at the end of the driveway. I unplugged it, threw it to the floor and gathered up the pieces and chucked it. Whenever I tried to go back and forth from Wi-fi on laptop to Wi-Fi printing from my Ipad it would stop...

It sounded like it would be a good product

It doesn't work well, drinks ink and the lid falls on your wrist.

"Flimsy (S)inkhole"

 

Probably the worst printer I ever had to deal with. Drinks ink like a drunken sailor drinks beer... (and the ink is not cheaper per gal than e.g. HP's as Epson claims). But if "dry" (aka not in use) for say a month, either the tiny cartridges dry out...

Only pissed away $150, printer & ink combined, before I smashed it...

False advertisement. It's named a "Wokforce". Maybe it means, it takes force to work with it... maybe typo, should say "workfarce" or "weakforce".

"A joke"

 

We bought this printer at Office Max for roughly $120. It worked pretty well except going through cartridges like crazy even though we didn't use it much. Then 34 days after the warranty expired a error message came up on the screen. Called Epson and...

It did work well (while it worked)

It got a error message that Epson said they couldn't do anything about 1 month after Warranty. Convenient.
