HP Deskjet 2540 review

 

With wireless networking and support for mobile printing, this MFP can't print photos but would work well in a home office

If you scan and print documents, but have little interest in photos, then this is a sound little MFP, albeit one with expensive mono costs. We'd have preferred more of an all-rounder, but if you're okay the scanning and photo printing limitations of...

HP's Deskjet 2540 is aimed at phone and tablet owners who want to print easily.

Low purchase price, Simple controls and LCD, Good quality copies

Fiddly cartridge renewal, Images don’t fill 15x10 photos, No NFC support

A HP AiO Device : HP Deskjet 2540

 

It has been a while since I last had the opportunity to check out a HP printer. If memory serves me correct, this unit was a home photo printing model that I reported on in 2008. It was therefore quite a surprise when HP's PR agency rang me up out of...

At the high end of the inkjet all-in-one market, Canon reigns supreme with its Pixma range of printers. However, lower down the pecking order, where printers such as the new HP Deskjet 2540 sit, it's much more open.

A cost-effective all-in-one, with decent print quality and broad Wi-Fi support

HAPPY WITH THE PRINTER

 

I AM AN YEAR OLD FEMALE ELECTRONICALLY CHALLENGED, I WAS ABLE TO GET THE PRINTER HOOKED UP & WORKING. I USE IT OLY FOR PERSONAL THINGS, SO IT WORKS PERFECT FOR ME.

Good Value, Easy to Use, Performance, for the price i"m happy

took me several tries to get ink cartridge

Might deserve more stars - read on

 

One of my reasons for choosing this printer is that it is supposed to print from a device such as my iPhone. But my iPhone was unable to download the required app. Truth is, my iPhone is 3 or 4 years old, so maybe it just is not up for the job.

Consumer review by:

Didn't work.

 

I tried for hours to get it to connect to my computer and my internet, but it didn't work at all. I am taking it back now. Save the hassle and get something else.

Should have gone with another model

 

My fault. I should have selected a model with more features. Does not have paper storage, only upright feed. Front door has to be open to receive your copies. I will keep it for use at my job to run copies, but I would not use it in my home or office.

Jams Easily, Difficult to Set Up
