Epson WorkForce 545 Software Download. I have used Epson multifunction printers for many years. So far the Stylus Photo XP-860 which speaks for the longevity of the Epson printer. The Epson WorkForce 545 follows in the same vein and fits seamlessly into Epson’s line of multifunction printers.
The scope of delivery no longer includes a USB cable. Either you use the printer via WLAN or you have to buy a cable yourself.

However, a set of ink cartridges is included so that you can set up the printer right away. During the initial installation, however, the ink channels are filled with color, which is why you can never print as much as specified with the “first” cartridges.
A set of new original cartridges is not quite as cheap with the original ink from Epson. 60€ and more are quickly spent. However, you can get quite cheap refills from some providers, which you should not buy from just anyone. Cheap ink is often coarser and quickly clogs the nozzles of the Epson printer.
Then you have to buy original ink to get the nozzles free again with expensive cleaning processes. You can save yourself that if you buy the iColor ink from Pearl (costs about half the original ink) or another good supplier. But you should also pay attention to quality here.
However, this ink is not waterproof. The original ink, on the other hand, does. Documents don’t run apart if a drop of water gets on them. This is certainly the case with the cheap ink. You have to be careful when you print out a package label and then take the package to the post office in the rain.
The printout on photo paper is not affected because the photo paper absorbs the ink to such an extent that water drops can no longer cause any damage. The durability of the colors on the paper has meanwhile improved a bit, but is by no means as good as with the original ink. You pay for that when you buy Epson ink. So if you print out photos that you want to look at even after 15 years, then you should use original ink.
So now enough of the ink and back to the printer. Unfortunately, only hard-to-understand brief instructions in different languages are included in paper form. Unfortunately, it is now also common that no detailed instructions are included. This is then on the enclosed CD on which the installation software is also on it.
Installing the printer is easy. CD into the PC and follow the instructions. Finished. It’s that easy.
After you have set up the printer and integrated it into the network, you can also conveniently print from your smartphone or tablet if you have installed the Epson app.
The print quality is really good. It’s just an Epson and it can do it in professional quality. The printer is so fast that it doesn’t necessarily have to hide from laser printers. Sure, it doesn’t quite come close to the speed of a laser printer, but it’s absolutely fast enough.
The paper tray, however, is not worth an Epson. If you want to print out 10×15 photos, for example, you first have to take out the DIN A4 paper and insert the 10×15. When you’re done with that, do it the other way around. That’s way too cumbersome.

I think the possibility of having a single sheet feeder on the back of the printer is great. If you want to print something on cardboard or something, you can use it and don’t have to take out the paper tray to put it in there.
Unfortunately, the Epson WorkForce 545 does not have a duplex printing function, making it impossible to print on both sides of a sheet of paper in one go. Here you first have to print the sheet from one side and then insert it the other way around again to have it printed from the other side as well.
Scanners and copiers work very reliably and the results are of high quality. All in all, I’m very happy with the results and can definitely recommend the WorkForce 545. However, you have to be aware that the printing costs with original cartridges are quite high, but the printouts are waterproof and the color fidelity is retained for many years.
Incidentally, you can already reduce the printing costs a little via the settings by setting the combination of text+image printing. In my opinion, the image quality for photos is absolutely sufficient and you save a lot of ink.
But as mentioned above, you can also use “cheap ink”, but then you have to make some compromises.
I would like to briefly address another reviewer who mentioned an issue with the ink pads. These pads are there to absorb excess ink when performing a cleaning process, for example. By the way, you usually only have to do this if the nozzles are clogged with “cheap ink” in order to blow them free again. If you only use original ink, these cleaning processes are usually not necessary.
If these cushions should really be full, you can send your printer to Epson. But before that, please take out the ink cartridges. They then clean the printer, reset the display and change the pads. In addition, new cartridges are used to make a test run. It all costs just €20 and the cost of sending it.
The return costs are already included. Now that’s really not too much. However, the whole thing takes at least two weeks, but then you get back a completely refurbished printer with a set of new ink cartridges. With all that in mind, the WorkForce 545 will not disappoint.
