Rated 1 out of 5 by evilvw They just don't last
I've owned two of this model, both in my business and at home. When my printers worked, they worked great. It is a very fast printer and the ink lasts a very long time. The problem is that it has a VERY short lifespan.
I've had two of these develop issues of leaking huge quantities of ink.
One WP-4540 started leaking yellow ink at less than 5000 pages, and the other leaks black ink and only has 7000 pages. The one that leaked yellow literally sprayed ink all over the inside of the chassis, but the one that leaks black leaks mostly on the pages that I print which leaves huge, dripping smears all over them.
I wrote the first broken printer off as a fluke, but after reading numerous complaints about this model doing the same thing and having another one break, I've decided to no longer make Epson my first choice of printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigAl Printer looks great, accessories ???
Just received the printer: it set up OK and appears to work just great. But ...
- there was a small white plastic piece rattling around loose in the second paper cassette. It wasn't broken off anything, just loose. I have NO idea where it came from or if something will crash and burn because it's not in place.
- 3 of the 4 ink cartridges that came with the printer for the starter ink kit did NOT work. Printer setup wouldn't complete with them (Cyan, Yellow, and Magenta.) Good thing I bought extra ink or I'd be sitting here with no functioning printer.
- My opinion ... great product, poor service (quality checking).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Printer disappointed Epson 4540 - trouble trouble
I had to have 2 replacements sent in 2 years - it spewed yellow ink all over the pages, then it printed everything with a strong red overtone. Now, just a year later (after the 2nd replacement in 2014) it is spewing yellow again!
It was printing letters, etc. fine, and photos were great until "the troubles" started - all three have now had the same type issues. I will not try again and recommend against this printer. Sorry Epson.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NIcki Won't print yellow
I have had this printer for several years now and have to say that I absolutely love it. Recently, the yellow ink started running all over everything. I finally got that stopped and cleaned up and now it doesn't print yellow at all. Seems from other reviews that this is a common problem. I know my warranty is out so I guess I'll have to buy another printer. If I can find another brand with two paper trays, I will purchase. Not sure I want to buy another one of these. My luck it will do the same thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CoopFootball Leaks Yellow ink
I have had this printer for two years and loved it until it started leaking yellow ink. There is a line of yellow ink on everything that I print. It appears It is happening with a lot of the units. Where is the fix EPSON?

Rated 2 out of 5 Happy Epson Owner
I was a very happy owner of Epson printers. Never had one that displeased me in the slightest.......until now. The leaking ink is a major draw back with this printer, which other than that, is a high quality printer. Unfortunately you can't have a printer blowing yellow ink all over your business papers and expect others to view your product as top quality. Epson, You need to fix this problem before you lose your quality customers.

I have had this printer for 2 years and absolutely loved it until it started leaking yellow ink inside. Very disappointing and frustrating.
