    • A. Apple's Airprint works great with this unit. There is also a program that is called Epson Iprint available from the app store that give you a lot of control. You can print and scan if they are connected to the same network. It also allow you to connect to Google docs to upload scanned files or print wirelessly from an iphone or ipod touch 3rd gen or newer.

    WF 545 - Great Printer & Value
    5/29/2012

    Customer review by SSDaytona

    4.0 stars 5/29/2012 by SSDaytona
    by SSDaytona

    My older but still working, sorta, HP C4500 wireless (worked fine when I ran Vista, but Win7, it gets really finiky) dropped its connection once again... and I couldnt get it working even after reinstalling drivers, uninstalling everything & reloading. So, having this problem for the LAST time, I retired the HP and went to Walmart to buy Epson's Workforce 545. I use it at home and might print out pages for work if I telecommute. Its also Apple Airprint compatible. Webpages and the like print out very well, clear and clean. But photos printed from Ipad or iphone albums to the WF 545 are very low res on 20# plain paper. Prints from my iPad and iPhone are set by default to a 4"x6" size for photo paper. A piece of Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper confirmed photos printed from my iPad/Phone require photo paper. I had reservations from reading Amazon.com reviews horror stories but decided if I followed instructions I should be fine. (115ea 4-5 stars vs 12ea 1-2 stars). I followed the quick start brochure (didnt open the IB) and followed ALL the instructions in the proper order and got in on the first go. Used a printer cable for the basic setup then set up the wireless connection. Once the printer was connected to my home network, I installed the drivers on a second computer easily as the printer was already in my system. Printing on the cheapest 20# paper from Walmart was more than just acceptable for general printing. I tried printing high resolution DSLR images on the two sheets of complementary Premium Presentation and was more than impressed in the results. The colors could use a bit of tweaking with ICC Color Profiles, but the resolution was finer than my 60 yr old eyes could resolve. Tried the printer mode with auto document feeder. Worked fine. Tried scanning - the software left me wondering where the copy file went but I found it. The scanning software is not as polished as HP's but the best software counts for naught if the hardware doesn't work. Another WF 545 weak point IMO is the paper tray. The paper stack isn't fully guided along its length. This was a weak area pointed out in user reviews I've read. And its true. But, load the tray and be very very steady in seating the tray into the printer so you don't bang the tray around, causing the paper stack to slide out of alignment and it should be fine. Some users have made cardboard guides to stick into the tray. I'll get around to that when I have more time. I was concerned about how the WF 545 would handle thicker paper. The very fine ink droplets in today's inkjets allow lighter 20# paper to handle the ink without large areas of saturated bleed though to the other side. I sent an Avery 5160 adhesive address page through and it printed straight and even. I was concerned that it might pull to one side due to the very small paper guides. Have not tried 24# paper as I don't have any right now. The plastic guides are .. flimsy and fragile but versatile. It can extend out to handle legal size sheets and retracts to fit letter sized paper. The length guide does not run the entire sheet length but laterally guides the first 2.75". The remaining 8.25" is left to gravity and friction between sheets of paper to keep in place. The footprint of the all-in-one is not as huge as I thought it would be. It still fits in the small spot I have for my printer. The finished paper tray only protrudes 6-1/4" out from the body of the printer. It appears to be capable of holding 250 sheets of 20# paper. I don't have a landline so cannot check out the faxing capabilities. Slots for Compact Flash and SD cards allow viewing on the 2.75" LCD color screen and printing. Didnt actually print any but did load some images on an SD card, plugged into the printer and verified the WF545 displayed them. Years ago, printers were heavy duty and made to last. Today, software changes so quickly that plastic wunderkrates seem engineered to last just a few years before componants wear out or become obsolete. So far I am well satisfied and impressed with printer/scanner/copier. Hopefully it'll still be supported for Win 8.

    After considerable shopping around for a new printer when my old HP Officejet All-in-One died, I found this excellent bargain on the Walmart website. It was in stock and on sale at my local store, so I bought it online and picked it up the next day. Setup using the easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions was a SNAP! I installed it on two desktops and two laptops, under Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 Home Premium (x32 and x64) without any problems. I set it up in a common area in my home so that everyone could access it, and it connected to my wireless network without a moment's glitch! I have faxed from it (both from the desktop application and from a hardcopy), received a fax, copied a document, and printed many pages. Beautiful print quality, and FAST! If I had a complaint, it would be that it is a bit loud when it prints. You won't want to put this in a corner of the baby's nursery... Other than that, I would highly recommend this excellent printer-scanner-copier-faxer.

    I bought this printer, after swearing I would never buy another HP. IMHO, they are all possessed! Anyway, I bought this one after reading the mostly rave reviews and for the fact that the ink is water resistant. I want to be able to do recipe cards and things for my kids, that I don't have to worry about being unreadable, if they get a drop of water on them. Installation was a breeze, even using only the wireless connection, since I didn't have a usb to usb cord available. Ink was easy to load, as was paper. I like that it holds a entire pkg. of paper. Now I don't have to wonder where I'm going to put the rest of it. Printing is excellent and wireless works great so far. I havent had a chance to try the scanner, (which I was never able to get to work on the last HP), so am looking forward to that, and don't use the fax so can't report on that. Shipping was sonic fast! Ordered it on Thursday and it was in my livingroom on Saturday! All-in-all, seems to be exactly as represented and I would deffinitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable printer.

    Purchased this printer back in December 2011 didn't want to write a review until I put it through a good workout. First I want to say it couldn't have been easier to setup if you take about 5 minutes tops to actually read the manufacture installation instructions. My printer setup is network wired into Verizon FIOS router, the printer is network shared to all printers in my home totaling 8 (Windows 7 and XP) every computer has printed without error of difficulty since December. I have printed, scanned and faxed especially heavy workout with tax documents no jamb, errors, miss feeds, it performed as expected and the added bonus is it's under $100 !

    I wanted an all in one printer for my home network. Price was a big reason why I chose the Epson Workforce 545. I was also happy reading the many positive reviews for this printer. Anyway setup was a snap, I had it connected to my network and three computers within an hour. The reason it took an hour is that the software has to be installed on each computer in your network. The printer works extremely well with a wireless connection which is the main reason I bought this printer. Print quality is excellent both text and photographs. Very happy with my purchase.

    If you are looking for a great all in one, then this is it!! Buy this from Walmart then get on eBay and get an ink system for it and you have an outstanding unit that prints, copies, faxes and scans for pennies compared to anything else out there. I have had many printers, Canons, HPs and nothing touches this. This is my third Epson, lost last two in the Bastrop wildfire, both of those were workforce 600's and great machines, both ran with ink systems from eBay and never let me down. Ink system is from the seller name of 5-starservice on eBay. It is a reliable system that is so inexpensive to run and produces perfect results. Hope this helps. Take care Mike

    it does copy very quickly as advertised, but ONLY in black and white, so if you do mostly black and white copying, need the fax and remote printing, you certainly won't be disappointed. i have yet to get 500 prints out a cartridge but come close if i keep it on the low quality/high efficiency setting, but the moment you increase the quality it sucks the ink VERY quickly. copying in color is different all together. ALL my color copies look awful even on best quality, which means i have to print them, and printing my color fliers takes FOREVER. to make them look decent i have to print on the highest quality which is extremely expensive in ink and it took an hour to print only 20 of my fliers. another issue i have is with the color itself. everything prints MUCH darker then it should, and frequently doesn't even print out as the right color. this happens mostly with red. all my reds look pink. i am extremely disappointed. the advertising is deceiving. this printer does not meet my needs.

    Just got my workforce 545, I was very happy with the price and the printer does work pretty quickly, as promised. For anyone who likes the idea of having a wireless printer, you need to know that you NEED the USB cable in order to scan things to your PC! The scanner works a bit slowly, but works well. The copy function works really well and at a good speed. My biggest - and really only - disappointment is that the quality of printed photos (on glossy photo paper) was not what I was expecting it to be. The photos aren't bad, but they definitely look like they were printed off a home printer. If you are looking to buy a printer or all-in-one for it's photo capabilities, I'd consider buying a different model. However, I am quite pleased with the crisp quality of document printing, the speed, the noise, etc. The only function I have not tried is the fax, but that feature is one that I may never use. The setup was quick, and I LOVE the tilting control panel! Overall, I'd recommend this unit.

    I have used several Epson printers over the years and I have found that as time goes by the quality of Epson printers have gone down hill (read flimsy). I bought this specific model to replace my old 4 in 1 printer that finally died. Pros: Quiet, fast, quality prints, easy to use, light in weight, cartridges cheaper then the competition. Cons: Only 2 downsides to this machine. 1. It is not solidly built ( flimsy lid and paper tray). 2. Fax machine does not like to communicate with other new fax machines (have to resort to my back up 25Y.O fax machine to send any faxes). I could have saved $100+ and bought a unit without the fax and it would do exactly the same as this one does. If you want a good printer that is quiet, does a good job in scanning / printing / copying, is light on ink consumption, then this model will fit the bill. However if you need to rely on a machine to also fax companies on a regular basis that have new fax machines, then avoid this model like the plague!
