Customer ratings and reviews for HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid less expensive home use product This printer replaced my HP 1200 All in One printer that finally died. Prints well and quickly, with easy setup, including wireless connection. Arrived much faster than projected delivery date, which was great! A good light weight printer at the price. It contains most of the features of the 1200 except for fax capabilities (which I don't need). Only issue was my space for printer, which is very small. While it's the same overall size as 1200, had to rearrange to accommodate upright paper tray. Have to remember to open output tray when printing (always open in 1200). If you don't and try to print you get a clear message re problem. April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product for the Price Excellent printer for simple home use with few printing requirements. March 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by HPDeskjet2540 Very disappointed in printer---print quality inferior, grinding noise when printing,cannot print multiple copies, not up to HP's usual quality. I have used HP printers for years and this one is not of the same high standard. I would prefer that this review not be printed. March 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product for the Price This printer was great for the price as compared to other similar products and brands. Scan well and copies effortlessly. Print out is of superior quality and very bold!! One draw back is the amount of squeaky noise coming from feed wheels. It does not effect the quality of the print in anyway, just very annoying and disruptive. Otherwise a GREAT PRODUCT!! I would recommend this product to anyone!! March 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good printer for my needs I needed a reliable, affordable All-in-One printer with affordable cartridges for basic home use. It was easy to set up (especially after watching the YouTube video.) No problems and easy to use. The shipping was quick, too. I am happy. March 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't work with my computer I have worked with this printer for days now and it still doesn't work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it numerous times and it still is not working properly. Sometimes it will print a page or two then other times it won't do anything. February 21, 2014
