Conclusion: The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One is an all-round multifunction printer that's suitable for home use or in small-business settings. Performance is terrific in most tests, especially when it comes to producing high-quality photos. But -- as with most HP printers -- owner reviews are mixed.
Pros: Easy to install and use, Outstanding print quality, Extra color cartridge for photos
Cons: No Ethernet connection, Small paper tray capacity, Plenty of owner complaints
HP Photosmart 7520 eAll-in-one Printer; print what life gives you
24 December 2013
Excerpt: All-in-one printers can be seen at every retailer out there, whether brick and mortar or online. There is however a standout in the HP Photosmart 7520 eAll-in-one Printer. Without further adieu, it is time to tell you why it is a standout. I got a hold of this earlier this month. It was the first HP I had gotten to review. I have reviewed many other manufacturers of all-in-one printers, as well as stand-alone printers, and high end photo only printers.
Need a productivity boost? Try cloud printing with the HP Photosmart 7520
4 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
Pros: Superb, fast photo printing, Great text output, Good overall build quality, Web and mobile printing options, Photo printing is near faultless. Colours are vivid, colour ramps smooth and consistent and skin tones accurate. It does a great job of printing default-quality prints on regular paper too. Its text printing rivals an Officejet for both speed and quality, and its feature set is comprehensive.
Cons: No second A4 tray, Some build issues, Slight banding on default-quality images, No Ethernet connectivity, There's very little to dislike here. Some may bemoan the lack of Ethernet connectivity, but you can connect to your network through Wi-Fi, or print wirelessly from a direct connection. The catch tray is flimsy, and not up to the build quality of the rest of the printer, and we wish the scanner lid hinges could accommodate scanning from thicker documents.
