    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!

    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.

    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.

    Excellent preforming printer. However, I believe the ink cartridges are too small, thus can not print very many pages.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
