    Piece of #%*^! Stay away

    • Written by from Murrieta

    HP Doesn't get it. This thing disconnects every hour. You have to bang on the touch screen. The Tray slot os awkward. You have to insert USB sticks several times before it reads them. HAD ENOUGH ? IDIOTS DESIGNED THIS UNIT. We should all sue HP for wasting so much of our time.

    WORST Printer I've Ever Owned

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    The printer LCD screen keeps freezing. Even after holding down the power button and trying to restart,the printer doesn't respond for at least 15 min. So I unplug the printer - when it restarts, the scanner makes a lot of loud noises. The printer has the audacity to say, "Don't unplug the printer or it will malfunction." On the next screen, it says that the scanner is now broken? I didn't break it - it had a hissy fit and broke itself. Do not buy!

    Don't Buy

    • Written by from Manhattan

    Great printer when you're plugged directly into it with a USB cable, but it's wireless capabilities are garbage. All of my apple devices have difficulty finding it on the network so basically "AirPrint" is useless for me. My macbook pro is able to find the printer at times.... if I get close enough to the printer. I spent several hours verifying my drivers were updated and that the firmware on the printer was good, but still had little success. I will not recommend this printer to anyone who uses apple devices or frequently prints via "AirPrint" or wirelessly across your home network.

    Once again I have bough a wireless printer/scanner/etc only to find out that it just does not do what it says it does. It is going back to the store. These things NEVER find my MacBook despite several tries at uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Useless. I also have a Canon that is basically a glorified printer since none of the other features work on tat with my laptop either. Might as well keep using my iPhone to take pictures and then email them to myself to capture documents - at least single page and pictures. WASTE OF MONEY!

    Great printer; no issues

    • Written by from Rye

    We have had the Photosmart 7520 for about 1 month. The set up was very easy, with wifi printing possible out of the box from the new iMac without an issue as well as immediate printing available from iPad and iPhone. Was also able to set up scan to email (have not tried scan to computer yet) and fax service with no issues.

    For my older Macbook Pro, I downloaded and installed drivers from HP. There was no issue on installation. When I went to "Add Printer", however, there was a bit of glitch in the last stage when -- after picking the printer from the list -- in the bottom window I needed to change the printer to "Apple AirPrint Printer" (as opposed to Photosmart 7520) to make it work, but have had no issues since then.

    Print quality of photos seems good, although I have no real way to compare with others -- but no issues at all I can see with the naked eye.

    Awful Printer with nothing but issues

    • Written by from bowmanville

    I am a Computer Engineer of 14 years and know my way around electronics. This printer (for the lack of a better word) had more issues than the '85 Toronto Maple Leafs. This would shut off, and not be able to re-connect until I would unplug the power cord and re-insert. That would kick-start and printing wireless would again be available until it powered down again after a while of non use. We took this back to Staples and will never purchase anything from HP again due to the awful customer service I received.

    Thanks for nothing HP and good luck with your nasty printers. :)

    Don't buy

    • Written by from Noblesville

    Can't turn off two sided printing if using MS Office for MAC. I'm sure this "could be" a simple fix, but there is simply no way to effectively reach HP. HP also decided to put advertisements on the printer screen, where functionality would be better. The ink usage and print speeds are not close to what are advertised and this thing is quite loud.

    Eats Ink

    • Written by from Evanston

    Printer functionality is fine, and the printer works well with my home network and with MacBook and other computers, but there is no way that I'm getting anywhere near the predicted page count from ink cartridges . . . more like 1/2 (and that includes the XL cartridges). Seems like a very cynical ploy by H-P; shame on them.

    Superb, for the 1st Time

    • Written by from Millersville

    Purchased the HP 7520 e-AioP directly from Apple Store, and for the first time, I have a printer fully functioning with my iMac. Setting up took awhile, so follow directions VERY CAREFULLY. Duplex printing, copy, and fax work fine. Have not tried scanning yet. Further, the printer is very fast, especially at copying. My iPad recognized it , and for the first time am printing wirelessly from anywhere in the house. Cost of inks is expensive, but that goes with any printer, and clubs always have deals. The printer is one month old, so if problems arise, I will revisit site. For now though, I am happy. Happy Printing!

    Negative number rating

    • Written by from Valley Grove

    This printer is a black hole. Wireless connection doesn't work well. Had to use a cable for the desktop (HP!!) MacBook Pro hunts it down. Forget HP tech help(?) If they can get it working, it won't the next time you try to use it. Constantly tells me it's out of paper, even with over 100 sheets in the tray. Prints one side of one page, then quits and says it's out of paper again. May spew blank sheets - and then be out of paper again with a full tray. It takes 2 people to get it to work, and then you have 2 frustrated people. One to tell the computer to print page again over & over, and another to feed one of the 100 sheets in & press the button to tell the printer that it's supposed to print. Never again. I had a Brother that worked fine. Too bad I gave it to a friend before I realized what a lemon this printer is. I was trying to upgrade to wireless.

    Great choice!

    • Written by from Virginia Beach

    I bought this printer about a month ago. I have an iPhone five and an iPad 3. I am very pleased with its performance with both devices. When selected, it will also automatically do two-sided copying.

    Flexible,and quick...

    • Written by from St. Louis Park

    My HP 7520 worked great from the get-go. I should mention (like a lot of printers), it goes threw ink VERY fast. But you can go into printer utilities, and specify color/b&w (b&w alone will drain black ink very fast). One can also specify the "volume of ink used". But when its on "fast draft, it is VERY fast, and 'fires" pages out, more then printing them. Note: Make sure its on a strong table, or it will "vibrate itself off" when printing. (found that out the hard way...)

    I have not used it w/Airport, only ethernet. So far no problems. Photos are very sharp, document's (some w/graphs) also very good.

    After 2 hours of phone calls (after reading the included instructions) I finally got the thing hooked up. I was trying to do this for my parents, to whom I convinced to switch to Apple because of it's ease of use. This printer made me a lier. If you don't hook up the USB cable you do not get the message from the HP Utility where it tells you how important it is to use the USB cable to set it up. Kind of stupid. Maybe it was my mistake but after following the instructions (after the cable was hooked up) it tells you that you need to DISCONNECT the USB cable to continue on with the WIRELESS set up. As soon as you disconnect it the printer can no longer find the network it is connected to???? My parents have a brand new IMac. The only think they don't have Apple is the router. The printer has no problem connecting to get all the online apps running on the screen (useless feature). There should be no reason it cannot communicate with the IMac. Apple's solution is to just keep the USB connected. Why ??? Crapy printer if for only the set up and installation. Would not buy again!!!!

    failed out of the box, never worked

    • Written by from Severna Park

    The first error was the ink cartridges would not register with the printer. I was able to fix this by repeated, somewhat randomly removing and reseating all 5 cartridges.
    The ink cartridges come w/ the printer, are clearly labeled and very easy to install, but the contacts must not be reliable. Anyway, install and re-install the ink four or five times and you should be fine. Be sure to use the 'setup' cartridges that come w/ the unit.
    Second, fatal error: immediate paper jam. Hat's off to HP on this glitch, it's a real professional jam, solid, tightly packed. Took me a couple minutes to clear it. I'm even using HP paper. Of course, I tried several times, even one sheet at a time. JAM ! JAM!
    My wife took it from me before I through in the driveway and ran it over with my car.
    Back it went.

    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.

    Great match for both my Mac and iPad

    • Written by from Surprise

    I love this printer and have been using it for about six months. It works great wirelessly with both my Mac and iPad. Easy set up (and I am NOT a techie). Touch front screen is very easy to use and I've been happy with the quality of both printing and copying. Scan works fine for emailing documents. I have not used it for faxing anything. It does a nice job of printing photos as I do a lot of scrapbooking. This is my 3rd HP all-in-one printer and so far, my favorite for functionality and quality.

    Impossible to print photos larger than 5x7 from an iPhone

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    It is impossible to print a photo larger than 5x7 from your iPhone or iPad. I called the printer tech support specialist at HP and she told me you can't select a paper tray when printing from a mobile device and I should contact Apple. I checked the App Store and found HP has a free print utility app that allows you to select which paper tray you wish to use. The problem is that even if you select "Main Tray" and "8 1/2x11" - the largest image size you can choose is 5x7. There's a "Custom" size option, but it makes even high resolution photos print at 4x6.

    In the Q&A section, someone says the photo paper tray is adjustable to 8x10 - it isn't. It only goes to 5x7.

    Bottom line - 5x7 is the max. size photo you can print from a phone. Any larger and you have to use a computer.

    problem printing double sided

    • Written by from ANDOVER

    When printing duplex, the printer cuts of the very bottom of the page. I've spent hours on the phone with HP all to no avail! I have used HP printers for years - have had at least 5 HP printers, however, I'm now looking at replacing it with a Brother printer. The print quality is good, wireless works good (I'm using it with a Mac).

    I would be completely happy if it would only print duplex CORRECTLY!
