HP Photosmart 7520 printer

Brad N., Newegg
8 January 2015
  • Pros: The printer prints very nice quality in 8 x 10
  • Cons: It doesn't want to print from the photo tray. It pulls the tray in makes sounds like it wants to and returns the tray saying there is no paper. I have sent an email to HP over 2 weeks ago and still no response. I have tried all of the fixes I can find on google to no avail. I have even purchase different photo papers to see if that was the problem.. I would give this more stars if I thought the customer support was even going to try and help me but I will say New Egg ...

Runs out of ink fast.

Nick "Nick", Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: When this printer has ink, it prints beautifully. The problem is it runs out of ink so fast, I have to look for another job to keep supplied in ink. Earlier this month I replaced all the cartridges. I've printed less than 10 photos this month and maybe 30 documents {mostly black}. My ink levels for cyan, yellow and pink are almost empty.

Thought I was saving money, but ended up spending more than a new printer would have cost me!

  • Summary: was told new, but box had been open, this is what I was told prior to purchasing the printer. When it arrived, the printer was in box and that was it!. No manual, no cdrom so I could load the drivers for the printer. I had to spend a lot of time calling HP getting info from them on how to set up printer since I had no manual (and still don't). Also the ink cartridges had about 20 % ink left in them, so it had been used.

Changes colors on photos -- Drinks ink

J. Finch, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: Worst printer I've ever had. It is undependable to print photos. It will do crazy things with the colors like turn my black dog orange. Then you go through many steps which may or may not work but waste tons of ink. I get probably less than 1/2 the number of prints than the ink is supposed to provide. The photosmart printers I've had in the past were great for photo printing. I love that I can easily print double-sided pages. This is great to reduce paper waste.

The design needs work.

  • Summary: The plastic on top of the paper tray doesn't allow the paper to easily come out because of the static it produces.

Just died without warning

J. Saenz "JMS", Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: Have had negative experiences with HP printers lately. This photosmart printer lasted only 7 months(and the usage is not heavy by any means) and one day, for no apparent reason everything is just blinking and unresponsive with the message "there is a problem with the printer" and instructing to restart just to get the same message. Have had another photosmart just stop working at just shy of 3 years of age and another networked HP printer just stopped working as well.

Horrifyingly inefficient with ink.

Adam B., Amazon
27 August 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this printer just over a year ago for its wireless functionality and price. We use it largely for light printing of documents and the occasional (and I mean every couple of months) we print photos. We ALWAYS print black ink only, draft unless there is a good reason for quality. We have replaced the printer once because it broke itself (yes, literally broke itself). Opened the top to replace the ink and it threw itself off track and ruined the internal gears.
