      Comments about Epson WorkForce WF-2540 Wireless Color All-in-One Inkjet Printer:

      The instructions said it's easier to setup the wifi on this printer, if you have a USB cable. Did that, unplugged the USB cable expecting the wifi connectivity of the printer to my router to work, and it didn't. So, just set it up via wifi. I've only had it for about 2 weeks, so the only complaint I have is that photo prints are weak. The saturation is low, and I am using semi-gloss paper with high quality printing. I bought this over the model that's $20 less based on a reviewer saying photo prints are great, versus a reviewer for the lower model saying the photo prints were awful, and I believe they're both bad for that purpose. However, you get a better LCD screen with this model. Probably won't do too much photo printing anyway. Love that the scanner is built into this, and the small footprint.

          I purchased it ~ a month ago and have been using it occasionally. It works OK, easy to set up. Photo quality is good at best but definitely not great. I run it on Window 7 (64-bit) and found that the accompanion AABBY text recognition software is not compatible with Word Offices 2013, specifically Word and EXEL in Win7 (64-bit mode). To make your Office Work, you need to wither delete the add-on or forget about installing the problem. Have not used other functions other than printing, so can't comment much.

                      It's particularly useful and economical in tandem with a large-format very-high-quality photo printer (also Epson) for good-looking letters, envelopes, PDFs, etc. And the fax-copy-scan functions in this one compact machine saves a lot of office space.

                                This was the easiest printer to set up I have ever had. The wireless feature was recognized by my network flawlessly. Something that was not commented on when I was researching was the ability to print from iPhone and iPad. Its perfect also. The fax works well as does the scanning function. The final plus was the inexpensive ink cartridges. Im very happy with this purchase.
