HP Deskjet 2540

 

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

HP Deskjet 2540 review

 

Can this low-cost printer deliver a high-quality performance?

Fantastic price ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Mobile printing ; Good photo prints ; Acceptable text printing

No colour screen ; No borderless printing ; No auto Duplex ; No internal paper tray ; Slow

If you're looking for a solid photo printer or an all-in-one for the home office, look elsewhere. If, however, you bought your PC for email and the web, and want a cheap and cheerful inkjet to retire the battered old typewriter you use to write the...

HP Deskjet 2540 review - still one of the cheapest inkjets

 

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

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...

The HP Deskjet 2540 is a multifunction device that offers print, scan and copy facilities with the option of either USB or wireless connectivity. With dimensions at the base of 398 x 195mm (W x D), this unit expands through its height of 156.60mm to a...

can be improved

- easy to use

- multiple papers are easily to be applied at single print, and an error could occur...it's always driving my parents crazy when using it.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great printer for the price.

 

It's simple to use. The extra software it comes with is kind of annoying, but once you play with it, it's really not so bad! I was able to print out full color 4x7 images and they were FLAWLESS.

It doesn't always feed the pages. Quiet annoying, really. But that's the only issue I've run in to. I have one laptop that doesn't seem to like seeing it on the wireless, so I have to plug it in to see the printer. Out of all my wireless devices, I...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Literally the worst piece of technology I have ever bought

 

Seems to be a one off poor product, I have otherwise had excellent results buying HP printers.

Light, fits in small spaces. Excellent for preventing papers from blowing away in the wind.

Everything. The software that comes with it insists that you install 4 extra programs outside of the basic drivers and software, and it runs extremely poorly unless you install all of these non-essential programs. i.e. bloatware. It took 2-3 hours of...

ink!

 

wireless and scanner are great

ink runs out in no time, 20 pages maybe. You must buy HP branded cartridges or the printer refuses to print! It has software detection and if not HP branded it refuses to print!

Worst Printer I have Ever Had

 

This printer will not work with my XP computer and Windows Vista compatible. This is not clearly stated and even says for Windows Vista. Error messages keep popping up for Windows 7. Cannot scan, many errors with printing which is very slow when...

very disappointed, complex and deceiving usage info

Too many glitches

 

This product has unacceptable glitches. One being, it will constantly tell me it cannot print, because the door isn't open when it is clearly wide open. Another is that for whatever reason it won't print something, so we keep trying. It will show...
