Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer
WP-4540 All-inOne (Refurbished)
Overall, I'm hopeful that the printer will work out fine. The first thing right out of the box, upon removing the blue tape in multiple locations, I discovered a hinged clear plastic dust cover for the rear paper slot, broken near the left hinge.
Tech support said that they could not send me a replacement, but would have to send an entire replacement printer instead. I told them never mind, I would use either tape or superglue.
The primary reason that I was calling tech support, is it that after installing all for printer cartridges (nice big ones), the printer begins in approximately 12 minute long and initialization. After three minutes into the initialization, I got an error with a message telling me to replace the three color ink cartridges (yes the ones that came with the printer).
To verify if the problem existed in the printer or the cartridges, I needed to replace all three color cartridges. Fortunately, when I purchased the refurbished printer from the Epson store, I also purchased a set of replacement ink cartridges.
That fixed the problem, and tech support assured me they would send out three color cartridges.
The software installation and setup went smoothly using the Wi-Fi Wizard on the printer control panel. The only hiccup… that really wasn't one, is that the firmware downloaded and installed for what I assume was a compatibility issue for using Windows 8.1. In any case, it seems to print just fine.

When I have 2 pages in E-mail it only shows on screen the first page and will not print the second page. Also, when printing the right side does not print, it cuts off. It may be something I am not doing right.
Other than these problems the machine is a good printer.

Great Ink Printer
Have had printer for over six months. Initial print cartridges last much longer than other printer brands. Prints fast. Be weary of Microsoft driver updates for printer because for they cause problems with printing and create limited printing options. Stay with Epson drivers.

Thank you for allowing me to review this printer. I am a Real Estate agent who needs lots of marketing material and thought buying this printer would help. Unfortunately, the best quality is for black and white.
When I first bought the color was calibrated to print out beautiful pictures, but when I had to replace the color cartridges, it has not printed out a good solid color picture. I have followed each instruction but nothing works. I am ready to trash this printer for something else.

What a great printer! I liked it so much, I bought one for my office and one for home!
Color is excellent, scanner works well.
Epson has great customer service, in the unlikely event that you need their support.

Epson WP-4540 printer
I installed the printer on multiple computers with three different operating systems, and everything worked smoothly. I have not owned the computer long enough to make any other comments, but I suspect it will work well.

This is my first Epson 4540 product. I am loving it thus far. It is a great instrument. My only wish is that the ink cartridges were just a little bit less expensive.
