HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer (A9U22B)
An affordable, simple all-in-one printer which is perfect for economical printing.
The Deskjet 2540 printer from Hewlett-Packard is designed to be easy to use and boasts an impressive range of functions. Whether you are printing at home or in the office, using the Deskjet 2540, original HP inks and photo paper you will be pleased with the print quality you get as a result.
This All-in-One printer has been designed for use with a wide range of computer operating systems and has wireless printing capabilities along with USB 2.0 connectivity.
With its simple one-button operation, the Hewlett-Packard 2540 has rapid print speeds of up to seven pages per minute when printing black text and up to four pages per minute when printing colour prints. From idle this all-in-one printer by HP will print a colour print in as little as 24 seconds and it will print a black and white print in as little as 17 seconds.
This compact all in one printer from Hewlett-Packard allows you to further increase your affordability by using original HP ink cartridges. The genuine HP 301 Black, 301 Tri-Colour, 301XL Black and 301XL Tri-Colour make your printing highly affordable and deliver exceptional print quality.
The Deskjet 2540 is able to print from DL envelope up to A4 size, the paper tray can be loaded with around 60 sheets of standard printing paper, and when not in use, the rear tray can be folded (without paper) to a flush fit on the top of the printer, allowing you to store it where desired. It only weighs 3.60 kg, making it easy to transport in an effortless instant.
If you require a compact printer which can be used for your everyday printing, the 2540 Deskjet is perfect for you. This printer is tapered from top to bottom, further reducing the amount of desk space you require. Unusually for a printer of its size, the Deskjet 2540 can be used with Apple AirPrint which allows you to print wirelessly from your Mac or iOS devices; you also have wireless printing technology from Android devices too.
Unlike many inkjet printers of a similar size, the HP 2540 delivers laser-quality prints at 600 x 600dpi, which for a small, simple inkjet printer is impressive making it a valid machine for any shortlist. The exceptionally high print quality is complemented by the fantastic 301 series ink cartridges which deliver consistently outstanding results.
Designed to produce waterproof, smudge free and fade-resistant prints, the HP 301 ink cartridge range uses innovative dye and pigment base inks suitable to use with a variety of paper varieties providing consistently outstanding results.
The HP tri-colour 301 cartridge consumer reviews pay particular attention to the quality of this ink, describing it as ‘true colour match’ ink for photograph printing. The HP 301 Tri-colour cartridge has a respectable print yield of around 165 pages based on 5% coverage. The HP 301 Black has an average print yield of 190 pages, ideal for the home or small business user.
Instead of having to buy separate cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges, you only have to purchase the tri-pack inks, which for little money provide excellent value. And what’s more-you can also purchase the competitively priced HP 301 Black and 301 Tri-colour 2-pack which works out as more cost effective than purchasing them both separately.
In fact you can save around 47% cost per page by buying XL cartridges. The HP 301XL Tri-colour and the HP 301XL Black cartridges provide far more ink capacity than the standard 301 cartridges. With an estimated print yield of up to 480 pages (HP Black 301XL) and 330 pages (HP Tri-colour 301XL), these cartridges are great way of further lowering your cost per print if you are using your HP 2540 Deskjet frequently.
