Product information

Affordable and simple, the HP Deskjet 2540 is an excellent all-in-one printer for home use on a budget. This sleek, compact printer will help you save space without compromising on features like Apple AirPrint, scanning software and a copier.

Key Features

  • HP Wireless Connect enables quick and hassle-free connection to a wireless network, so you can print from a computer on the same network, from anywhere in the house. Wireless printing is easy, even with a smartphone or tablet with the HP app installed, while Apple AirPrint makes printing from your iOS device just a couple of taps away.

  • By using the HP Printer Control app on your smartphone or tablet, you can even scan directly to your mobile device, making it easier to take your scans with you.

  • Produce high-quality documents with laser-quality text and vivid colour graphics, but don’t expect to wait around for your work; jobs finish in as little time as 17 seconds.

  • Save energy with the 2540 too. It’s ENERGY STAR qualified and composed of 25% post-consumer recycled plastics. HP’s Auto-Off Technology intelligently turns your printer off when you don’t need it on!

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but not great Print quality is very good but its getting it to print thats the problem. Firstly maintaining a wireless connection seems very hit and miss. In the end I connected a usb cable and my mac now sees the printer all the time. However if I print multiple documents once the first has finished it does not clear the print queue so all the subsequent documents stack up behind until you go into the print monitor and delete the first document. Despite numerous reloads of the software as well as a useless conversation with HP technical support it still does it constantly. That said every printer I have had in the last 5 years only seems to last 12 month and always had some problem or other whether Epson, Canon or HP 28 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Would never buy gain I was pleased to purchase another HP printer which would allow wireless printing , the machine has ticked all the boxes . Would not recommend to anyone as you will pay through the nose for your printing costs . I am printing no more than 100 sheets of A4 a month but am having to purchase ink cartridge every month £80 in 4 months is way to much .Have purchased HP Instant Ink but do not bother total waste of time . HP support team are unhelpful and I have been unable to link the Instant Ink to the Printer . Will not be purchasing another HP product 19 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product I gave this as a 75th birthday present and I have had nothing but praise from the person I gave it to 18 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value product I chose this printer as it and the cartridges are reasonably priced. It was well packaged and easy to set up, with clear instructions. It is compact and does not take up a lot of room. My only criticism is that it sometimes takes a while to get going with the printing and seems to remain pending for longer than I would anticipate. 16 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good little printer Took some time to set up with a laptop wirelessly but perseverance paid off and after 3 attempts did it. I'm not that au fait with technology but managed it . Quiet after my old printer. Bought it for my daughter who uses it for uni work with no problem. Would defo recommend . Only gave 4 stars as took some time to set up otherwise its great. 11 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Great value for money printer... Can't really go wrong for the price! 04 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by just couldn't get the wireless connection setup I can tell the printer is good as it printed the instructions and the type was excellent. It was replacing my previous wireless printer so wireless can work in our house but I installed and reinstalled the software 3 times and it couldn't find the connection. Annoyingly I will have to return this printer. I have wasted hours on this. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great purchase ! I bought this printer because I wanted to print from my iPad. It was so simple to set up and the instructions were very clear, even for somebody like myself who is a novice. The printer works like a dream and for the price is a bargain ! 03 February 2015
