The Epson WorkForce WF-3540 has been awarded PCMag's Editor's Choice award, which recognises its range of multi-function printer (MFP) features.

David Stone from the website believes the machine is weak when it comes to text quality, but boasts effective paper handling, making it a great choice for micro offices.

"Although the WF-3540 level of output quality takes a little of the shine off the printer, there's plenty here to make up the difference, from the long list of MFP features to fast printing to the easy-to-use touch screen control panel," Mr Stone explained.

He cited the WF-3540's 3.5 inch colour touch-screen control panel as another advantage, calling it a "welcome improvement" over the Epson WF-3520's LCD screen.

On the other hand, Epson's Workforce WF-2540 system was recently criticised by PC Advisor writers.

Jon Jacobi and Melissa Riofrio reviewed the system and claimed that ink costs are too expensive, while glossy photos are produced at slow speeds.
