Mistake

Paul P., Newegg
11 May 2014
  • Summary: Boo hiss to Epson. This is the first time I've been bit by one of their printers. It's really my bad to not make sure the Epson I was buying was supported, but I've never had to in the past.
  • Pros: I don't know.
  • Cons: My bad. I bought this thinking there would be simple PPDs for OSS. Nope, only one I found was on openprinting.org had proprietary ties to Linux. I'm on FreeBSD and the gutenprint project that does so well with simple PPDs and drivers has not been given any of the WF-25xx series for a port. Not good.

NO CABLE / BE WARNED IF YOU WANT TO CONNECT TO YOUR COMPUTER RATHER THAN GO WIRELESS

ralph smith, Amazon
21 April 2014
  • Summary: After reading many , many reviews , I ordered this . The installation process ground to a halt when I was asked to connect a USP cable . A cable was NOT included with this product . I kind of think that info ought to be included at the onset when someone orders one of these .

Epson WF2530 Printer

Phillip, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: At this time I have not been able to connect this printer to my Dell PC with Windows 8.1. I contacted Epson and they could not help...told me I had a problem with my computer and I needed to speak with Dell. I was not pleased with the support from Epson.

Prints at an angle

Allen Kapusta, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: My printer was delivered promptly, The unboxing instructions were unclear as to how much tape and packing material had to be removed, I kept coming across more of it (for a printer with a black finish, orange tape would be easier to see than blue).

Going Back to an HP Next Time

Macy Banton, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: After using this printer for about a year, one thing I'm certain of is I'm going back to an HP next time. This Epson printer gulps ink, and won't even let you print in black & white if any color runs out.

Poor ink design

G. Anderson, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: Overall a nice printer, but it is designed to become inoperable if one of the 'color' cartridges runs out. Even if you designate it to print with only black, it still will not work until you replace the specific 'color' that is out of ink.

Not so fast

TRFB, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I was very excited to try out this printer. I have another Epson printer (Epson Stylus NX430), so I was able to compare the two. Both are wireless which is a big plus. I love these wireless printers.

Small Footprint, but at what cost?

APG from Philly, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this All-in-one because of it's small foot print. That is the only positive that I can say about this printer. 1. Paper feeder, rear, failed after 32 days necessitating a call to Epson and an in warranty exchange.

Beautiful, Sluggish, and Clumsy

Nathan A. Edwards, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: The machine is not a total waste. The image quality is great for an entry level printer/scanner/copier. It also looks nice, and doesn't take up much space. This is, quite literally, every nice thing I can think of saying about this all-in-one mechanism of frustration.

Unfortunately, This Was Not Our Favorite Printer

Patty Hahne, Amazon
28 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought an Epson WorkForce WF-2530 for my home office and sadly, it seemed like I constantly had problems with it. It lasted just past the 1 year mark when the warranty expired before it stopped working completely.
