Reviews From Across the Internet
Experts have viewed the D2545 favorably in relation to its class. This printer does what it is supposed to do and it has the added benefit of being “green”. Some might see the printer as lacking options, while other may view it as being streamlined for environmental friendliness. If all you want to do is print simple office documents as opposed to photos, then this printer is a fine choice. If you do want to print photos, consider spending a little more for a printer that has a few more options such as scanning and copying as well as providing additional card slots.
Customers have liked the simplicity of this printer when using it for its intended purpose, simple office documents. While replacement ink costs $30 for a printer that only cost $45 originally, it is possible to refill the cartridges to continue the theme of green.
