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

HP Deskjet 2540 All-in-One Printer 4.6 5 73 73
Undecided Easy to set up, good quality print for the money. My only difficulty is trying to work out how to print pics etc a4 size from my iPad. Unsuccessful so far :-( 18 November 2014
Excellent printer and fast delivery service Printer duly arrived at my local Waitrose store the day after I ordered it from John Lewis (excellent service as always). Following the quick setup instructions the printer was easy to install and simple to connect to my WiFi network. Print quality is very good and replacement cartridges are reasonably priced. Overall great value for money and in my opinion one of the cheapest 'quality' printers around. 18 November 2014
Good so far Good so far -- low cost, easy to install, good, quick printer, clear copies. 18 November 2014
Good 'air' product Having an iPad, this printer is really useful as it can also be used for 'normal' computers. 18 November 2014
Great value; works Cheap printer; easy to set up; does the job; HP quality 11 November 2014
A great buy Lightweight, looks good, HP quality for a great price. 04 November 2014
Great value printer / scanner / copier I decided to go Air wireless for my printer and a friend suggested this item. More than pleased with it, easy to install, easy to send print or scan to it through the router wireless. An excellent item from Hewland Packhard and very good value for money. 16 September 2014
Great value wireless printer I was unsure exactly what to expect given the low price tag, but this printer has proven to be great value; it does seem to have some issues when dealing with paper that thinner than regular paper (picking up multiple sheets at once), but for regular printing jobs I've not experienced any problems. 09 September 2014
