It's Great But.......,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Epson WorkForce WF-2530WF Ultra compact and reliable 4-in-1 for the small office printer with Wifi and AirPrint (Accessory)
To tell you the truth, if you are a PC savy person, you never need to open the instructions. As soon as you turn it on, it asks where you are in the world, what the date is, what the time is then it asks you to put in the ink cartridges (which come with it 1x set)... it then has a 4 minute moment of diagnostics and moving all its moveable bits about the place, then it says it's ready. Pressing menu on the printer and going to the WiFi selection it asks you if you want to search for a specific router (yes we do)...it lists off all the ones it can find in range, you select your one, enter the password (this is still at the printer, typing in the password using the alpha numeric buttons (or dial out buttons for the fax feature of the device ) .... it happily connects and immediately prints out a network status sheet with all the information you may need when you are back at your PC. Thats it from the Printer side of things. You open the box, power it up WITH NO PC or LAPTOP attached... and do everything above. this means the printer can be in bedroom, while your PC is in the front room.
Scanning, same applies, as soon as you select scanner it asks you where you want the output to go (this is on the display of the printer)... you can choose USB to PC , Network to PC or WIFI to PC (I took the WiFi one)... now as soon as you put something on the scanner and hit scan.... by the time you have walked back to the PC, the associated program has opened ON IT'S OWN, and the scanned image is sitting there waiting for you. Faultless.... I have done all this and the manual and software is still sealed up. it is mind numbingly easy to set up and use. and the quality is excellent, it's fast, and quiet..... if you are to leave it on during the day, expect the printer to make some noises every now and then, this is normal, and just part of printer putting itself in and out of standby mode... which I believe is about 13 minutes of in-activity..... VERY MUCH WORTH IT.

I have to say, thank you very much for the very detailed feedback, it helped greatly in making a decision :)
I don't know if you'll ever return to this comment down the line, but if you do, could you comment on the ink-usage you've seen? I'm wondering about the value for money + quality aspects of it's ink-usage. Also, are you using compatible cartridges (as opposed to Epson originals)?
Many thanks again for your review, I've got my eye on this printer now! :)

I have not run out of the original cartridges yet. but saying that I am not in an office, I got the device for home use, the odd print out of a letter or scan of a received letter for digital storage. So for a "hard core" user, (multiple prints an hour) they would chew though the cartridges very fast. So in short our frequency of use does not allow me to answer your question accurately. sorry :(
