Weighing only 11.16 pounds, the HP Photosmart C4540 prints, scans and copies documents at fast speeds. Not only is it lightweight, but it also doesn't take up too much room. Its size is only 17.09x23.11x6.38 inches, which isn't too big for a unit that is essentially three machines in one. This thermal inkjet unit also can connect via wireless or USB, and it has a monthly duty cycle of 1,000 pages.
For printing and copying, it is essential to have a black and a tricolor HP Photosmart C4540 ink cartridge. The tricolor HP C4540 ink cartridge houses cyan, magenta and yellow printer ink. While these black and color ink tanks will produce documents with great quality and high resolutions of 1200 dpi and 4800x1200 dpi, respectively, a third tank filled with photo printer ink is also available for higher resolutions.
These tanks of black, tricolor and photo HP C4540 ink have very small page yields, which will be the major drawback in buying this particular machine. The black yields 200 pages, the color yields 170 pages and the photo yields 130 pages. Users who print a lot of documents will probably find themselves buying ink more often then they'd like.
Consumer reviews of the HP Photosmart C4540 are pretty mixed. Those who think positively of it, find that the wireless connections are impressive and that it always exerts high quality. Users also find that the inkjet unit is very fast. For many, the C4540 was easy to set up too. On the flip side of things, many consumers regret their decision to buy the HP C4540. Expensive HP C4540 ink, reduction issues and unreliability are a few of the common complaints. Users argue that the Photosmart C4540 ink consumption is much higher than promised by the manufacturer, and that it is too loud even when not in use.
