    Very useful printer and the price is right, October 25, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    I’ve been in the market for a wireless printer for a while, so I jumped on the chance to get one through the Amazon Vine program.

    SETUP

    The Quick Guide is pretty easy to follow. One thing I did not expect is the need to remove (what seemed like) 8,382 pieces of blue tape from every single surface of the printer…inside the printer…there is blue tape everywhere. I don’t know if Epson has stock in blue tape or what, but just removing all the blue tape took me several minutes. Installing the four ink cartridges was very easy – remove the yellow tape, click the cartridges in place, and then let the “priming” system run. That took about 5 minutes. The next step is to load the paper…and then we’re off to install the software.

    SOFTWARE

    The CD auto-runs (of course) and you can install the needed drivers/utilities as well as some other stuff I was not interested in. (An OCR program, etc). The main installation took about 5 minutes or so. Once the installation is done, it’s time for the wireless setup.

    WIRELESS SETUP

    Doesn’t get much easier than this. You can choose to connect a USB cable temporarily (just for setup purposes) but I elected the other option: connecting completely wirelessly. For this to work, you have to know the name of your network as well as the network password. (This info is probably on the back or side of your router, unless you’ve changed it manually). The printer will auto-detect your network – for me this took about 10 seconds. Then to enter the password, you use the number keys just like you’re texting on an old cell phone. For “E” you have to hit the “4” key 7 times, etc. It’s a little bit repetitive but it only took me a couple of minutes. Then the printer auto-connects to your network. At this point, you come back to the computer to verify the wireless connection and print a test page. Mine worked perfectly. The next option is to set up the fax, but I skipped that step. You can do that later by following the instructions in the manual.

    FIRMWARE UPDATE

    For me, the next step was the installation program searching for, and then downloading, a firmware update. To install this update, you have to turn the printer off, then on again. The update took about 5 minutes, during which time the printer turned itself off and then on again.

    EPSON EMAIL PRINT / GOOGLE CLOUD PRINT

    The next option is to choose whether you want to install and enable Epson Email Print and/or Google Cloud Print. To install Epson Email Print you have to create a new Epson account, which I didn’t want to do, so I didn’t complete that step. Google Cloud Print just requires – you may have guessed this already – a Google ID. I logged in and enabled this feature, and then did a test print of a photo from my external hard drive. The print job took about 30 seconds to start and it worked like a charm.

    PRINTING

    I tried the basic settings and got a printed page in pretty much no time at all. A lot faster than my current printer (Canon Pixma). More detailed print jobs obviously take longer, but I was impressed with the speed and the clarity. I printed a photo of a museum placard on the lowest settings…and I can read all the words like I was in the museum. Pretty impressive.

    SCANNING

    Scanning works fine using the Epson Scan software. I was a little surprised to learn that if you just hit the “Scan” button on the printer, you you must use a USB cable. Wireless scanning is only supported using the Scan software.

    PRINTING FROM SMARTPHONE

    I downloaded an app called “CloudPrint” from the Android store (it’s free). It lets you print from your smartphone to your printer, using the “share” or “send to” option. So if you have an app that you want to print from, just check to see if it has a “Share” or “Send to” option and if it does, you’re in business. Not sure about the range…but in theory, if you leave your printer on while you’re out, you can send print jobs to the printer and come home to a stack of printouts. Pretty cool.

    INK

    I’ve had Epson printers in the past that ate ink like it was going out of style. Obviously I haven’t had this long enough to know how it handles ink, but I can tell you there are 4 cartridges (black, magenta, cyan, yellow) and they are fairly small so I would not be shocked to learn that they run out quickly. Right now, Amazon is offering a replacement multi pack for twenty five bucks, so that seems pretty reasonable.

    OVERALL

    If you want to set up every single option it does take about 30-40 minutes, but it seems to me to be worth it. This is a great user friendly all-in-one machine. Highly recommended.

    Awesome little printer….better than my NX-420, November 24, 2012

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)
    I have been the happy owner of the NX-420 (“Small In One”), another Epson compact Printer. It’s very similar except for a few additional handy features which I’ve found very useful. The top paper feed is my favorite feature, which is missing on my other printer. I can print off a nice stack of paper, which would prove to be too much for the back paper feed. That means alot less “printer baby-sitting” which is very much like watching paint dry.

    This all-in-one also comes equipped with a fax feature which has been the easiest I’ve had to set up in all of my printer owning history. While I don’t use the fax often, it is an easy no brainer to use, I haven’t looked at the help section YET, and most likely won’t need to!

    Epson has outdone themselves with these lightweight printers in their ease of use (no mysterious panel to study, crazy drivers and software to hunt for, etc.). They are set up in an intuitive way that makes sense if you’ve had any experience with electronic gadgets like a cell phone. This particular printer has been a stable little workhorse, cranking out really great looking prints when I need it to….and being sparing on the ink supply for text.

    Unlike some other reviewers…I wanted to put it to the test for MONTHS to see how well she fared. I don’t think it’s fair to use a printer for a day (or a week) and give it 5 stars. Typically a printer will go gangbusters for a short period then go to Hell later if something’s wrong. I’m happy to say that my printer has been consistently running without any issues or problems since October. While that isn’t a super long test period, I’ll be happy to edit & update this review if she craps out. So far, so good!

    The WF-2530 works well wirelessly or with a cable.The color of the prints is exceptional for a printer of this size & cost (teeny!). Is it a good deal? I absolutely think it is…and as far as inkjet cartridges are concerned….the Epson cartridges cost less than the other brands I’ve had. Fax sending without a hitch. Oh…and the SCANNER….wow…is sharp, I can’t tell any difference between a doc loaded from my hard drive and one I’ve scanned. You can also scan without being hooked up to your computer, which I DO…I take mine on the road.That’s exceptional in the world of the less than $100 compact printer. All of these features in an all-in-one that weighs 13 lb.Highly recommended!

    NOTE: If your printer has been sitting awhile & you start getting blank pages try the following:

    * Clear all print jobs via clicking on the printer & select “cancel all documents”. Do this even if you have no jobs in the queue.
    * Do a nozzle check via the menu button on the printer. If your nozzles are clear, do the next step.
    * Gently dust the inside if it’s dirty, wipe down with a soft cloth and/or canned air.
    * Again, via the menu select “change cartridge” (this will move the carriage to a place where you can access it). Take out each cartridge & shake it (make sure you cover the opening with a paper towel before doing so, or you’ll fling ink all over the place) then replace. Do all cartridges. Select “OK” to “finish”. The printer will then recharge the cartridges, it takes a few minutes. If for some reason the black ink isn’t working, this usually solves the problem. When the ink has been sitting awhile without printing, the heavier color molecules settle at the bottom & interfere with printing. Recharging the cartridges (along with shaking them) will make them work again.

    This printer was easy to set up and was firing on all cylinders–printed quickly, straightforward settings in Windows, good quality even in draft mode, colors and even photos looked excellent on plain paper, etc. But when printing an actual photo on premium photo paper it was a complete flop. Not only were the photos dingy, the ink took forever to dry, and worst of all, some internal paper guiding mechanisms were dragging on the printed area and smudging it. Then, of course, they cleaned themselves off on the next couple of sheets that went through–completely, totally 100% unacceptable. After experimenting a bit I found out that if you had a small enough photo and centered it on the paper you could avoid the smearing, but the picture quality was literally better on plain paper than photo paper.

    If you don’t ever want to print photos then I highly recommend this printer, it’s great at everything else.
