    Good Quality Prints

    • Written by from SAINT JOSEPH

    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.

    • Written by from Atascadero

    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!

    No Scan with Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Beware

    • Written by from Williamsville

    Very disappointed.
    No Scan ability at all on OS 10.8.2 (iMac fall 2011)
    Tried manual download from Apple and installed software. No good.
    Apple should advise us if this stuff does not work. Please.

    Awesome Printer! Buy it!!

    • Written by from WILMINGTON

    One of the best printers to buy. The price is reasonable as well. It's extremely easy to setup and user friendly when printing over wifi. I print from my iPad and iPhone 5; not to mention from anywhere in my house. Great investment.

    I have used this printer for two years and have been continually frustrated by its lack of reliability. I run a Mac desktop computer, a Mac notebook, my TV, and my iPad off a wireless home network. This printer is the only device that will NOT stay connected to the network. Every time I use the printer, even if it's twice in the same day, I have to reconnect it. Considering the extremely inconvenient method provided for connecting, this situation is more problematic than a consumer-oriented design would be. in addition, the software is so inaccurate that it is worthless. it will often report that a document is printing when it is not. Jams are frequent because paper feed is poor. Technical support is expensive and not helpful. I was actually told to dismantle the cartridge carriage. I replaced it with a much less expensive printer with more features. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER.

    Avoid HP

    • Written by from Derry

    HP is great when running with PC's. The printer is great when you plug directly into it. The wireless is a constant fail. Everytime I need to print it's a project to get the MacBookPro and the printer to talk without plugging in via usb. I have given up all hope after another evening of fighting and have bought an Epson which all my Mac/Apple peeps say works everytime. Sorry HP.

    As an IT Tech I was thrilled how quickly I was able to set up this printer. The installation went smoothly from tapping into my internet for wireless to testing all the functions. Works like a dream and can't beat the price.

    Very Disappointing

    • Written by from Berlin

    I looked at the reviews when I ordered this printer/scanner. One review said the scanner didn't work. I call Apple and asked if I should be concerned with this problem. They assured me it would not be a problem. I received the printer/scanner yesterday and set it up the wireless scanner from the computer to scanner worked great today it's getting hung up and freezes my computer and I have to reboot. The HP help tells you to run the HP utility to make sure the network is "good" and not coming back with an "unknown" status. I have a good status and it still gets hung up. I will call Apple to find out about the return policy.

    Cheap, plastic printer poor paper tray design

    • Written by from Livermore

    Bought this printer in March 2013 and the paper tray finally quit feeding paper in June. Paper jams throughout time I have used it. During my teaching career I taught the Office Program so I have used printers since 1986. HP printers made during the first 10-15 years from HP were solid, well-built, designed to take the constant printing needs for the computer classes with an average of 30 students per class for 6 to 8 classes each day. HPs newest computers are JUNK! Cheap plastic and cheaply made. Yes, printers do cost less today. However, I would rather pay more and have them last for years with less problems. It often took us days to get the printer working with all the different programs so when you consider that time it takes to set one up it is worth the extra cost to get one that is reliable. There is NO HP tech support either!

    Worst printer ever

    • Written by from Chevy Chase

    Do not buy this printer. It never works well. It requires toner changes after only printing a few pages, is always backed up, spooling, giving us error messages. What an aggravating part of our home office!!! It is great that you spend only $150 on it because it will go through that much in toner in the first 2 weeks.

    Big disappointment

    • Written by from Bloomington

    This printer is very disappointing. It loses its wireless connection constantly and runs out of ink quickly. The ink is very expensive and the quality of the print is just not that good.

    I loved HP printers in the past, and I regret this purchase very much.

    This will work good for 6 months and then it will stop feeding and stop recognizing the black ink cartridge. It wont print black at all. HP says its common with Macs and they don't have a fix. I would not recommend this at all.

    Bad Printer!

    • Written by from New Kent

    I loved this printer for the 1st year! Then it stopped working. Would not print anything with black ink!!! Called customer care and talked with some one in India. Was told for a FEE they would send me to a support line. After doing some research, I found that many Mac users are having the same problem! So it is now in a dump and I will not buy HP again!

    2.5 stars. This is a WPS enabled printer which means staying connected to the home network is a nightmare if you don't have a WPS enabled router. AT&T and HP point their fingers at each other, while the customer is SOL. Scanning is painfully slow, basic printing operation is fine.
    You can do better.

    A Frustrating Photo printer

    • Written by from Wallingford

    The thing works AOK printing documents, fast and legible but a crock when it comes to printing A4 photos. It fails time after time to pick up the photo paper so one's prints are offset. Print saying 'plain paper' and all I is well other then the soggy plain paper) but tell the machine that it has A photo paper in it, and the output is screwed with margins at the edges. Don't buythis if you want to print A4 pix or you will be disappointed.....

    I have had this printer for about 2 years now. I bought it for school because I would be doing most of my homework on my iPad at the time. It works great when I'm printing from my iPhone - never has a problem. However, whenever I print from my iPad, my MacBook Air, or my iMac, I have to physically unplug and replug the printer! I'm loosing my mind!

    Great Printer for Home Use

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Purchased this printer in July along with my first MAC.. I was excited just because it was wireless. I have yet to manually connect the printer to any device meaning I've been printing wireless since it came out of the box with absolutely no problems! I print from my iPad, iPhone, macbook, etc. now if you're attempting to use this printer for a small business light usage etc, it will work fine especially for the price point. however if you're seeking to use this printer for a full-blown active business.. this is not your product. Perfect for school.. just sent one to both of my children away at college.

    This is much better, functions more efficiently, and works better with iPad, iPhone, MacBooks, and iMacs, than the previous generations of HP printers.
