Good Quality Prints
I have now had the HP Photosmart 6520 for about a month and am very pleased with its performance. I have printed several 8x10 pho I have now had the HP Photosmart 6520 for about a month and am very pleased with its performance. I have printed several 8x10 photos that I have framed and placed in various locations in my home. As a semi-professional photographer, photo quality is very high on my list of expectations.
I currently have my HP Photosmart 6520 connected to an iMac via wifi. Because it is an e-printer I am also able to print from my iPad and that has been a great capability when I want to print a hard copy of what I am reading.
As a word of advice - use the high capacity ink cartridges. Quick and easy to remove and replace cartridges. …

Best home printer ever.
I've owned a lot of home printers. The HP Photosmart 6520e-All-in-One is hands down the best for our needs. From multiple devices, I've owned a lot of home printers. The HP Photosmart 6520e-All-in-One is hands down the best for our needs. From multiple devices, from multiple locations, it's never missed a beat...It should be in the 'Workforce" line of HP printers.
As far as ink usage? Much better than average, but I do recommend buying the XL. Then you don't need to worry about it for awhile.
If your in the market for a great home printer? Buy this one! …

Best Printer I have Ever Owned!
This printer is perfect for those who love wireless printing! You can print wirelessly from your laptops, desktops, iPhones, iPads This printer is perfect for those who love wireless printing! You can print wirelessly from your laptops, desktops, iPhones, iPads, and iPods. I think it is also compatible with other smart phone and tablets (non apple products). This printer even gives you the option to create an email that pretty much lets you print from anywhere! (Say you are at work or any other place--you can send whatever document/photo to the email you have created with HP and it will instantenously start printing from your printer at home! It prints fast! I highly recommend this printer to anyone who complains about having cables everywhere, having just one computer to print from b/c of their printer being connected to that one computer. Once you have tried wireless printing, you will never want to use a non-wireless printer. I have nothing bad to say about this HP Photosmart 6520 printer. GET IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT! …
