HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer
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.
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!
