Olivetti PGL 2540 black and white Office printer review.
Review date: 19 February 2018
Hi, today we are reviewing the Olivetti PGL 2540 printer. A black and white Office printer from Olivetti.
We will go over some of the important details in this review and offer some comparisons to other printers on the market..
Before buying a printer from a dealer, you should speak with them directly about the model you are interested in.
The PGL 2540 is a black and white laser device from Olivetti, offering high quality black and white output. It is a good performer providing quality print output with decent speeds and lots of useful features
It's a well made printer, targeted at low volume workloads in a small office / home office or for personal use. In our opinion the PGL 2540 is best suited for homes with very light print requirements
As this is a print-only printer, it does not offer any additional functionality besides printing. If you need other abilities, such as scanning or faxing, you should look at multifunctional printers.
The Olivetti PGL 2540 sports a touch screen panel for easily printing and adjusting print settings and performing other useful tasks.
The PGL 2540 has efficient mono printing, with a print resolution of 1200 x 1200 DPI. There is an enhanced resolution function that also enables you to print at an even higher quality - should the need arise - although the print speed is a fair bit slower.
Offering A4 print speeds of up to 40 pages per minute, you can be sure of efficient printing for large print jobs. Duplex printing function allows you to print on both sides of a page, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact. This printer also offers a time-to-first-page of 6.4 seconds meaning short and one-off print jobs are quick and easy to complete.
Extra print features for this device include: Barcodes, Envelope printing and Printing on transparent material
This printer does not have any networking capabilities.

We review all printers in comparison with each other - meaning that 1 star indicates that a printer is in the bottom 20% for that attribute or function. When shopping for a printer, you should keep the star rating in mind and compare it to the prices being offered - low rated printers, at cheap prices can be the perfect choice. Conversely, when thinking of purchasing an expensive printer - ensure that it is highly rated, or it is simply not worth paying extra for.
