This WP-4540 does everything well, just as it is supposed to do. I particularly like the ADF for multiple page scanning and copying. I am able to create full color, great looking documents right from my office. The support given by Epson is very good; i have had to use it only once, and that was my fault --- (my bad.) Looking forward to a long period of solid, high performance with this Epson unit.

First this was my fist wireless printer but with that said setup went very smoothly. I installed it with usb cable then tested it out and was delighted. The printer showed up on my home wireless network. While IMHO you do have to be aware of how to use your network I can't immagine it being any easier. I then added the software to a laptop connected to the network and did a wireless setup which went without a glitch. Just for fun I downloaded the epson android app which had a few glitches. But after the app found the printer and I figured out the phone and app, I was able to print pictures from the phone to the printer. Have yet to test the scanning, fax, copy and so on but all in all it have been very easy to setup and seems to be working fine. I especially like replaceing the individual catridges as opposed to the 3 in one color carts. oh yea my samsung s3 pictures in HD look really good and clear in an 8x10 also. Gotta try the banner printing to print out 3'x3" model airplane parts also.

Good Printer but Short Life

Customer review by Katbirdtrading

Overall, this has been a pretty good unit. Print quality is great, even for business presentation. Often times, I will use this model over our color laser. Print speed is very quick and spool up time is quick. No problems with print quality or speed. Scan, copy, and fax all work as they should. Biggest concern is the durability. Print head unit began showing lines after about 9 months. Did a cleaning but problem did not improve. Appears a nozzle became clogged as yellow ink flowed out into the lower tray. Finally, trying to print but it would either pick up no paper or would pull 5-7 sheets at a time. Credit to Epson customer service, though. They walked me through several possibilities before saying they would send a new unit out. This has been a good unit for us and pleased Epson supports their brand. Hopefully, the replacement unit will last a little longer than the original unit. I would not shy away from this unit over technical problems. It's electronics. Sometimes, they just don't work the way they should. Epson fixed it and we're happy.

I needed a wireless printer, so I decided on a Epson WP-4540. . I looked at the WP-4530, and the 4540 has the same footprint, just taller because of the extra paper tray. Easy to set up (I have windows 7 professional on both my laptop and desktop). Do download the new drivers from Epson before installation. I selected the Epson over all of the other brands because of my experience with Epson photo printers (3), that I have. I think the only problem that I had was finding a spot for the printer. It is big. I sure would like it if Epson would put the regular full size cartridges in it, instead of the starters. I would highly recommend using a 24 or 28 pound paper, I use 28 pound Hammermill paper for color laser, and do NOT get multiple sheets fed out of the paper tray with this paper. Get quality paper, it works. Overall, I like the printer. I don't need the fax function, but all the other functions perform as advertised.

I am thoroughly satisfied with the performance of this 3-in-1 printer. It is a work horse. My only difficulty with this printer is with regard to the MP tray. I use it for printing envelopes and sometimes for legal size paper. It would be preferable to use one of the trays that sit under the printer than using the MP tray. ///

This printer was great. I bought it in March 2012 and had only printed 637 pages total when all of the sudden it starts spraying yellow ink stripes from the top of the page to the bottom. I went to the Epson Support site to see their resolution for this problem ad found nothing. However in the reviews I found where others were experiencing the same problem. I then googled the issue and found review after review describing the same yellow ink problem. I also found a YouTube Video showing the problem in great detail. It will be difficult to buy another Epson printer considering this problem after the printing of only 637 pages. I have also seen others responding that Epson has pulled the replacement parts from parts sites without offering a substitute part that doesn't have the problem. After replacing the ink cartridges, my final cost per page was approximately 85 cents each. !Outrageous! Buyer Beware!!!

I own this printer, and I would really love it, but I cannot give it a 5 star due to the following reasons: 2 reasons: Reason 1: Epson designer you need to think about giving it a higher altitude from the automatic paper feeder to the Output ray on the table. Why, because of the low high altitude causes to push away papers/pages from the automatic feeder to the Output tray "receiver" then pushed out to the floor, once a document has been scanned/copied. Epson designers, we need you to fix that, I really hate that fact/issue, because when a put a set of documents where the order is important, I cannot trust the automatic feeder, since it will, eventually, push away pages, and it will make my life not easy to reorder the documents. 2nd reason: The other issue I'm not happy with is that YOU CANNOT DO DOUBLE SIDED SCANS FROM THE TABLE GLASS FUNCTION. (As of today, 4-22-16) it cannot still do double-sided scans from the table glass, using the printer itself to USB device, but from the automatic feeder only. May you please fix that on one of your firmware updates or driver updates? Those are the only two reasons, I cannot give it 5 stars. I hope Epson review this comments and take actions. Thank you

I bought this machine for home use since there are three computer users at home who all need printing capabilities. It's by far the best printer I've ever used. It prints almost as fast as a laser printer and is quite quiet too. Fax works flawlessly and so does duplex printing. Setup was breeze through wifi. Though a USB cable is recommended, it is by no means necessary. If you're thinking about purchasing this product, don't hesitate. I was also able to buy this at quite the discount too! The 4/5 star rating is due to only 1 big box office supply store carrying the ink for this machine (other than Epson online store). I assume it is because the printer is relatively brand new. So buyer beware regarding ink costs. I've checked the other big box electronic shops and they do not carry the ink required for this machine. I live in Canada if that helps anyone gain context on the stores I'm referring to.

First I must say that I’m an Epson’s printers fan. I have purchase other printers before but presently I only have my Epson (R300 and R1800) printers. The Epson 4540 is an additional printer. When I pull the Epson 4540 out of the box it was bigger than I thought. I have had it now for about 2 weeks. I’m using it with my I-Mac and windows laptops but mostly with my I-Mac. It’s a good printer. It wasn’t hard to setup and I install the software on my MAC and several windows PCs. I have used this printer to create envelops for my daughter’s wedding, to print a double side document which works fine, and I’ve printed several photos on different media type paper which looks great. I was very impress with printing from my IPod using Epson IPrint too. So far the printer seems to print with no problems and I’m still figuring out different features on my printer. So for now yes, I would recommend this printer.

I've owned two of this model, both in my business and at home. When my printers worked, they worked great. It is a very fast printer and the ink lasts a very long time. The problem is that it has a VERY short lifespan. I've had two of these develop issues of leaking huge quantities of ink. One WP-4540 started leaking yellow ink at less than 5000 pages, and the other leaks black ink and only has 7000 pages. The one that leaked yellow literally sprayed ink all over the inside of the chassis, but the one that leaks black leaks mostly on the pages that I print which leaves huge, dripping smears all over them. I wrote the first broken printer off as a fluke, but after reading numerous complaints about this model doing the same thing and having another one break, I've decided to no longer make Epson my first choice of printer.
