Need a productivity boost? Try cloud printing with the HP Photosmart 7520
16 June 2013
Summary: The HP Photosmart 7520 earns its "all-in-one" moniker and adds cloud printing, remote accessibility, wireless connectivity, and app downloads to its list of features for busy households and small offices.
Pros: The HP Photosmart 7520 all-in-one is a cost-efficient introduction to the world of cloud access, remote printing, and simple interactions with the unit's large 4.33-inch color touch screen.
Cons: With no support for Ethernet, this printer won't do much for IT shoppers looking to link to a hardwired network.
Excerpt: This is a five- colour inkjet A4 multi-function printer, copier, scanner and fax, also letting you fax directly from your Mac. There’s a 25-page Automatic Document Feeder along with a 125-sheet paper tray and separate photo paper tray (but no disc printing).
Excerpt: The HP Photosmart 7520 has a very different design to the others, eschewing the increasingly low and flat look for a stepped shape. The smaller top shelf has the scanner platen, a 25-sheet foldaway ADF and a protruding tablet-style touchscreen, then there’s a cut-out thin body before you reach the bulky base, where A4 and photo trays sit. It’s not ugly as such, just different.
Two paper trays and an ADF, a big tablet-style touchscreen, fast document speeds, attractive price
Disappointing photo quality, awkward boxy design, rather noisy
Conclusion: HP’s Photosmart 7520 offers outstanding print quality and ease of use, with all the features most small or home office users need. It’s definitely worth consideration–especially by photo mavens. Canon’s Pixma MX892 is a similarly straightforward and competent choice.
Pros: Excellent text and photo output; easy-to-use control panel
Cons: Scanner lid can’t telescope to accept thicker material
Conclusion: HP's Photosmart 7520 is a stellar printer for home use, but it's also more than capable for home office and small office use. If you're looking for a quality printer that's great for both text and photo printing, look no further. This one's a prince among inkjets.
Excerpt: Nu får du så heller ikke en topklasse printer , der er bygget til at køre mange tusinde print hver måned, naturligvis. Og 7520 er da også lettere og virker knap så gedigen som for eksempel den dyrere Brother. Men er behovet en kontorprinter til hjemmet, ligner HP et oplagt valg. Ikke mindst, fordi den også udskriver fotoprint, har Wi-Fi, kortlæser og alt det andet, du forventer at få med en almindelig fotoprinter.
