Epson WF-2540 Drivers Download for Mac & Windows and Review

Epson Labor force WF-2540 All-in-One Printer (copy/fax/print/ check) has a 30-page automatic record feeder, it outputs good message as well as graphics, and also it has triple-threat USB, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi connection. Those are attractive features on any type of shade inkjet multifunction, but there misbehaves news: Ink prices are high, as well as glossy photos print at some of the slowest times we have actually ever seen. Scan speed is nothing to write home about, either.

Establishing the WF-2540 is a breeze. With USB, Ethernet, and also Wi-Fi all on board, you're totally free to attach it to a PC or network in any kind of location you want. The WF-2540's small non-operational footprint: 15.4 inches wide, by 14.8 inches deep, by 8.7-inch high additionally aids in the flexible positioning. Nevertheless, those numbers (displayed in an image on Epson's Website), are a bit misleading. When you expand the guide for the 100-sheet rear vertical feed (there is no level input tray), the elevation climbs to 11 approximately inches. With both the guide and also control board in running position, the depth is a lot more like 17 inches. That's still reasonably compact, but not as little as if with a bottom-mounted tray.

The Epson WF-2540 Drivers software bundle is standard, but capable. The Epson Scan program is user-friendly and also fully grown, as well as it will manage any kind of scanning task you toss at it. That would be everything except automatic two-sided scanning, which the WF-2540 does not support. Abbyy FineReader Sprint 9.5 is on hand to take care of Optical Character Recognition tasks and there's likewise the full gamut of Internet as well as regional wireless printing alternatives.
I didn't find making use of the WF-2540 fairly as user-friendly as lots of printers. The 2.5-inch LCD show, buttons, and also keypad are fine; there's simply something a little off in the implementation. You're forced to hit the OK button sometimes when the menu/home button would usually operate, and there are simply sufficient various other little oddities to make the experience less than top-shelf. You'll get made use of to it, yet it could be done better.

Hand-operated duplexing is never user-friendly. For the WF-2540, onscreen motivates help-- for PC individuals. Unfortunately you'll get no such help if you're using a Mac. I also had some problems replacing the ink cartridges. Possibly it was my ham-handedness, yet several times I got "void" cartridge messages. Re-seating (several times) healed this, however the device can be picky regarding the replacement operation. Speak with it better compared to I did, and you might do better with it.

While the WF-2540 gets you right into an inkjet multifunction for a reasonably small initial investment, ongoing costs will certainly hit you hard if you print in any type of type of quantity. That's a roundabout way of stating that per-page ink prices are very high. The standard $17/175-page black is a monstrous 7.4 cents per web page (cpp) and also the $9/165-page cyan, magenta, and also yellow cartridges are 5.45 cpp apiece. A 23.75 cent four-color page is not a deal. The $30/500-page XL black, as well as $13/450-page color cartridges decrease that to 6 cents each black page as well as 17.3 each four-color page-- still well above standard.

Performance-wise, the Labor force WF-2540 additionally proved a frustration. Regular files and duplicates exit swiftly sufficient for home usage, yet scans are pokey, as well as the unit is really slow with glossy images. Monochrome web pages output on the COMPUTER at 6.7 web pages per min (ppm) and 6.5 ppm on the Mac. Snapshot-sized (4-inch by 6-inch) pictures print at almost 4 ppm to plain paper.

The problem with glossy prints differs by settings. When utilizing photo paper we generally examination in the first-rate mode, yet this slowed the pace of the WF-2540's output considerably. Photo pictures published in the setting to shiny paper took control of 2 mins, and full-page pictures printed on the Mac an incredible 10 mins. The full-page picture's print time enhanced to about 6 mins by stepping down one quality to High-Quality mode, and also to concerning 3 mins dropping yet another grade to High quality mode. There was no apparent loss of integrity in High-Quality mode compared to Best setting, and also just a moderate one when we utilized Top quality mode, so stick to those on the WF-2540 unless you're looking to pass the time.

On the bonus side, though you'll have a lot of time to head to the store for extra pricey ink during several of its procedures, the WF-2540 generates extremely nice outcome. Essentially whatever that appears of it is first-class. Text is sharp and black, and also shade prints are nice. Darkness are a bit dark, as well as the colors cooler than originals, yet in general the output sports a classy feel for a four-color (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) system.

The Epson WF-2540 All-in-One Printer is attractively valued, and the three-way USB/Ethernet/Wi-Fi connection is appealing, yet taken overall-- Epson fizzled with this one. Ink expenses are high, as well as photo output is slothful and afterwards some. Look instead to the Dell V525w or HP Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One Printer. Both devices have less expensive ink as well as similar attributes at about the same price. Better yet, spend another $50 and get something much more feature-complete.
