HP Deskjet 6540 Printer Review
Expert review of the HP Deskjet 6540 printer
09 February 2012
This desktop inkjet printer by HP is designed for users who need a basic and midrange device that can produce high-resolution and vivid prints in monochrome and full colour. However, the faulty construction, the outdated paper tray, and the unnecessary software that comes with it makes the HP Deskjet 6540 a poor choice.
HP attempts a futuristic design with the HP Deskjet 6540's silver case combined with dark grey tones. All the controls are conveniently located on the front panel to your left, but the indicators are quite small. At 13.2 lbs, the HP Deskjet 6540 is portable; the depth of 14.4 inches makes it rather bulky for a basic printer, though. It is one of HP's older models and still uses wired connectivity via a 4-pin USB type B to a USB 2.0 port.
The control panel has a one-touch button for selecting the print quality and a button for cancelling print jobs. Ink levels indicator is in the same area, making it easy to know when you need to replace a cartridge. The HP Deskjet 6540 is quite fast for an inkjet printer because it can do 9.8 ppm in monochrome and 5.7 ppm in colour. Printing in draft mode is much faster at 30.4 ppm in black and 20.8 ppm in mixed colour/monochrome.
Replacing the ink cartridge on the HP Deskjet 6540 can be troublesome because of the flimsy and poorly-constructed cartridge holder. Some users reported that the springs snapped while they were replacing the cartridges. The HP PhotoREt III (an Image Enhancement program) that comes with the printer is sub-par compared to more advanced graphics editing programs. And because it is an older model, the HP Deskjet 6540 is only compatible with Windows XP and Mac OS X 10.1.5.
