epson wf2540 review

The Epson WorkForce WF-2540 is a compact, multifunction inkjet printer that also scans and faxes. It offers built-in wireless printing and a USB port that lets you connect a portable storage device directly to the machine. It can also print directly from your phone or tablet using Epson’s iPrint app. It also has a convenient 30-page automatic document feeder and fast performance.

The printer’s physical build is one of the smallest in its class, with a footprint that’s a little less than the size of a legal sheet of paper. It has a 100-sheet paper input tray that extends out from the back, along with a bottom output tray to corral outgoing prints. A 2.5-inch LCD monitor makes it easy to navigate the device’s features.

In our tests, the WF-2540 tied with the WF-2530 in overall speed, producing 2.6 pages per minute (ppm). This makes it significantly slower than both the Editors’ Choice Brother MFC-J430w below, at 4.3 ppm, and the more expensive but faster-printing Brother MFC-J825DW above.

Epson has bundled the WF-2540 with basic but capable software bundles for scanning, printing, and OCR tasks. Its Scan program is intuitive and mature, while Abbyy FineReader Sprint 9.5 takes care of OCR chores.

The epson wf2540 review is a solid multipurpose inkjet for small offices and home use. It has a small footprint and a wide range of connectivity options, but it’s not the fastest or best-performing model available. If you’re looking for a faster and more feature-rich option, consider the Brother MFC-J825DW.
