Review: Epson WorkForce WF-3540 All-in-One Printer

 

The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 offers a lot of paper capacity, speed, and ease of use for the price. Although ink costs are above-average, it's worth considering for being so well-equipped compared to the competition.

Automatic duplex printing and scanning ; Nice output quality

Ink prices are higher than average

Epson WorkForce WF-3540

 

One step up in Epson's line from the Editors' Choice Epson WorkForce WF-3520, the Epson WorkForce WF-3540 is similar to its less expensive sibling in most ways, but more appropriate for a different level of use. Both of these inkjet MFPs are aimed...

Prints, faxes, scans, and copies. Unusually capable paper handling. Wi-Fi. Ethernet. Prints through the cloud

Although good enough for most business needs, text quality is a touch below par

The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 is a little weak on text quality but its paper handling and MFP features make it an excellent fit for a micro office with heavy-duty needs.

Epson WorkForce WF-3540 review

 

The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 bundles an array of useful features to keep your office productive, including a top-loading auto document feeder, dual paper input trays, extra-large-capacity ink cartridges, and cloud printing access by way of Google Cloud...

The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 workhorse multifunction is built for performance with cloud printing capabilities, extra-large-capacity ink cartridges, dual 250-sheet paper trays, an intuitive touch-screen display, and an external USB port for standalone...

The 3.5-inch touch-screen display works well with gesture navigation, but its fixed angle inhibits its usability in higher positions.

Complete with wireless access, remote printing in the cloud, an interactive touch screen, and several paper trays, the Epson WorkForce WF-3540 is well-prepared to handle large workloads for home offices, corporate teams, and everything in between.

Epson WorkForce WF-3540 review

 

Paper handling on the WorkForce WF-3540 is top-notch. In addition to two bottom-mounted, 250-sheet paper cassettes, there's a single-sheet rear feed for photo paper, envelopes and the like. Tip: Push the paper down into the rear feeder until you feel...

The WorkForce WF-3540 is the only £129 MFP we've reviewed recently that isn't missing one feature or another. It's not as cheap per page as the Brother MFC-J4510DW, but it automatically scans in duplex and doesn't striate colour output in normal mode...

Best I've had so far for heavy home use

 

I've had this in-use for two years, and it is the best printer I've had in the home so far: just wanted a work-horse where the wireless worked seamlessly, from all 5 computers, printing from every room and floor including the basement. Supports fashion...

wireless works printing and scanning; double sided, color works without fail

Scan software on install presented a conflict

Flimsy

 

The unit had to be replaced twice by Epson in the first 12 months for hardware issues. Now it's 2 months out of warranty and it is down again. Tech support could not help. Corporate was rude and told me to bring to a service center which I did and they...

I'm looking at it right now and I can't think of one pro
