    Excellent wireless performance with Apple products and more!

    • Written by from Sandwich

    After so much research on wireless printer performance with Apple products, I took a chance on the HP 7520. If you read enough user reviews you will not want to try any.

    I did not install the HP software on my MacBook Air, but instead set it up on the wireless network as a stand alone device. It has worked flawlessly with this laptop, 2 iPads, an iPhone 5 and also an Android phone. I have used it for multiple full color 4X6 and 8 1/2X11 photos and documents and have scanned directly to the iPads and both phones using the HP apps. I love the effortless double sided printing, and also keeping both paper sizes loaded at the same time, and not having to choose which to use. My biggest concern was having complications with my Apple laptop, but so far all features have worked so easily while maintaining print/scan quality. I have been using this printer 100% wirelessly and loving it!

    Communications problems

    • Written by from San Francisco

    When this printer worked, it was great, but it kept losing connection with my computer (all HP printers I have used have this problem), an iMac. On my previous HP, I could unplug and replug the USB cable, but that does not work wirelessly. (Why this printer cannot use WiFi with the USB cable plugged in I cannot guess.)

    The printer does not really have a traditional fax capability. It uses some efax service which is claimed to be free for some number of pages, but the service demands a credit card and wants to charge a monthly fee, more expensive than buying a separate fax machine.

    As with many HP all-in-one printers, if you scan, it forgets how to print; if you print, if forgets how to scan.

    Works with Mountain Lion, but front touch panel has limited functionality

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    This printer works fine with Apple's built in drivers (for printing and scanning). Quality, speed, etc all seem good.

    Be aware, though -- the nifty touch screen on the printer itself has only limited functionality when used with a Mac. You can use it to set up various printer settings, but several of the one-touch buttons (in particular, "scan") does not work. (i.e. if you place a document on the scanner and hit "scan", the printer returns the error, "no computer found."). HP confirms this is a limitation of the printer when using with Macs. Initiating a scan from Image Capture or other scanning application on the Mac works fine.

    I can print with my iphone & iPad from anywhere

    • Written by from Davie

    Set up was a breeze. I hooked it up to my network & our 2 laptops effortlessly. When I installed the apps on our ipones & ipads I was amazed at what I could do. Having paper trays (one for paper & one for photo paper) is it's best asset. The printer has a "brain". When you print a photo it chooses the right setting and the photo tray & produces high quality photos, right from my iphone. Draft printing is super fast & very good quality. Best printer I have ever had & it does it all.

    A pleasant surprise

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    Though not a fan of HP printers, I was pleasantly surprised with this printer. Easy to set up. the print quality is great as well as the two paper trays, great for pictures without having to change paper, but can of course print photos on regular paper. I found the ink, if you put it on draft, prints as well as normal, and will extend the life of the ink cart. save the special ink settings for important pictures or legal documents. it is a waste of ink to print everyday things such as text docs with normal printing. I use this setting for insurance forms and have not found any loss in quality of print.

    For the price it is a great printer, and the cart. are very reasonably priced.

    The 7510 was better....

    • Written by from Charleston

    This printer has MUCH less functionality than its predecessor, the 7510. First, this printer does NOT have E-fax functionality, a feature I assumed it had because I thought it would be a step up from the 7510. Second, you cannot access facebook directly from the touchscreen on the printer, so unlike the 7510, you cannot go to Facebook on the printer and print directly from it. Third, there is some sort of software glitch where the software cannot be downloaded from the internet. All in all, not impressed. Please bring back the 7510!!!

    can't be beat for the price

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    I considered both this printer and the Artisan 837. I went with the HP and am glad I did. I had none of the set up or connection issues mentioned by some other reviewers. I have not used the USB cable and have had a very solid WiFi connection. If the HP printer software is installed on your Mac (mine is running OS 10.7) the scan-to-computer function works fine. I've used all the functions except for fax and had no issues. AirPrint works great, including the ability to choose 2 sided printing from your iPhone/iPad. And, for me at least, with quality paper this printer outputs beautiful photo prints that I think are as good as the lab. The pre-installed apps are mostly fluff (coloring pages, etc) but probably would be useful with children. The quick forms app came in handy when I was tutoring my niece and we needed some graph paper.

    terrible wireless connectivity

    • Written by from alpharetta

    This printers connectivity with my mac book pro is just awful. Every time I want to print something I have to unplug the printer and plug it back in to reestablish the wireless connection.

    Spectacular print quality and ease of use

    • Written by from Berkeley

    When our old printer gave up the ghost, I finally decided to buy an all-in-one, and man am I glad I did. The AirPrint functionality works flawlessly, so I can print and scan from my iOS devices. Printouts are gorgeous, especially when using inkjet paper: on par with a laser printer. Don't hesitate.

    Buyer Beware

    • Written by from Rancho Santa Margarita

    I got this as a christmas gift for my aunt&uncle, but it had problems with the wireless. It would drop out after the first 5 minutes (or so) of turning it on, and never come back. And had severe range problems compared to any other device (including another HP printer!) (I tried many things, including moving it closer to the wireless router, switching the wireless router from a Netgear to an AirPort Extreme because I thought it might be an AirPlay related issue, updating the firmware, etc.). After reading the reviews from Apple and Amazon, it seems like other people have this problem too (while it's fine for others -- so it might be a quality control issue at HP). I ended up getting an Epson Artisan 837 for them. While the Epson's are a little slower at printing, they seem to have much more consistent positive reviews on Apple and Amazon's sites. We didn't have any issues using this at all, even with AirPrint (which was the primary reason for buying a new printer for them).

    As for other features of this product... also realize that they tie in with a lot of other 3rd party services which you have to pay for. This may be convenient to some or be seen as nuisance advertising to others.

    Print quality & communication problems

    • Written by from SAN DIEGO

    Very unhappy with this printer! Communication problems losing connections to wireless - have to unplug cable to restart printer. When printing from computer it prints in black and white and pictures are extremely poor quality. Unable to scan to computer so unable to send e faxes or scan documents to computer. So unhappy after one year that I will trash and purchase a better printer! Don't waste your money on this one!

    Ink Cartridge Eater PhotoSmart 7510

    • Written by from Alexandria

    I bought the 7510 based on reviews. Have been satisfied with quality and ease of use. I've only printed 330 pages and have gone thru all color cartridges and a black XL cartridge. I use the printer mainly for text printing. Unless your loaded. Skip this printer. I've had to come to terms that any time I need to print something I better go by the store for ink. By the way I bought this a year ago. The XL cart which is supposed to print 550 may have printed 100.

    I'm going laser, not laserjet. Good luck.

    HP 7520 review

    • Written by from ORANGEVALE

    I bought this printer directly from HP in Jan 2012 and had problems getting it to find the internet address from DHCP from my Linksys router. Many other devices are served just fine except the 7520. My wireless is from an access point not a wireless router but this, according to the 7520 documentation should work fine.

    If you select the "Tools" option on the front panel then it has no "return" option so you are stuck on this screen until it somehow times out. The HP printer software guys need to test more thoroughly.

    this printer has great features but the wireless software systems is very weak. I have had no problems on my network with a recently purchased HP5514.

    the HP 7520 takes over 3 minutes to get an IP address from a router.

    Paid $100 for each when I purchased an apple product.
    Only one would SCAN and ONLY one would PRINT! so i would unplug according to the job I was doing. So stupid!

    Then the SCANNER one finally broke after 9 MONTHS!
    TODAY it has been 12 months and the PRINT one broke!

    The cartriges were $50 to refill and they dried out fast so you could not have them refilled by a second hand store (costco, walgreens, etc)..which led me to have to buy NEW $50 cartridges VERY often.

    Also the printers could NOT turn off their WIRELESS ability so it would take FOREVER to print ONE PAGE!

    HP Photosmart Wireless All-in-1 printer

    • Written by

    I have had the same issues with my Photosmart on my iMac using both OS 10.7 and 10.8. The WiFi has never worked properly. WiFi was very difficult to set up initially and it quits when the printer goes to sleep, refusing to reconnect after waking up. I finally just connected it by cable. The WiFi will not work when the cable is hooked up, so you can only access it from the wired computer. Also, the scanner freezes in the middle of a scan and requires a full restart to correct. I recommend you look at a different machine.

    Constant Connection Drop

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I wanted to like this printer, but it's nearly useless. It ALWAYS drops connections. And when you want to print something right now and have to fiddle with settings and turn it on and off, and even that doesn't work all the time, you're in trouble. Look elsewhere.

    No problems whatsoever

    • Written by from London

    I am surprised at all the negative reviews, we have had no problems at all. Set-up was super easy and quick, and since then the printer, scanner, fax and copier has worked absolutely fine. No problem with the wifi connectivity from either our iMac or our iPhones and iPads.

    The only thing I would say is that I have trouble turning off the automatic double-sided printing and sometimes you have to wait for up to one minute for the printer to warm up after a long time of inactivity. Otherwise, it works like a dream, and the eprint facilities are great!
