Rated 5 out of 5Â by TAZmania SIMPLE & STYLISH
When it comes to printers, I have destroyed my fair share, from over use... and it didn't bother me, as there was always a better one that I could get. Well... those days I think have come to an end. This newly purchased HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer is one awesome printer! It has a stylish design and my gosh... was it ever simple to set up for use out of the box! The videos for installation and processes are so easy to understand and the wireless feature is great! Photos are beautiful and I didn't think I would like the 4 individual ink cartridges to deal with... but the advantages , as seen with photos from this ink system, are amazing! So far this printer has done everything I have asked of it accurately, reliably and professionally. This is one printer, I plan to hold onto for many years! It works seamlessly with my HP Pavillion dv6-6c 10us Entertainment laptop (notebook). Would highly recommend this printer to friends and family!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by PeteDaPirate why is it missing photo black?
One of the reasons I went with the 6520 was the absence of fax and the large number of 564xl cartidges I had from the previous all-in-one, the 309. Surprised by the missing photo cartridge.. Too early to tell anything about printing except it didn't get worse. Haven't printed any photos yet.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mwhit Great as usual.
I've only had HP printers for the last 6 years. My last one a Photosmart printer, lasted for most of those years. Finally the print head carriage gave out. I printed a LOT of pictures and documents.
My new Photosmart 6420 has worked flawlessly right out of the box. VERY easy to get online with I my home wireless network. All my PC's and laptops connected right away. All can print quickly and easily. The colors on the photos are great. The big plus with the Photosmart line is the Photo paper tray that is always loaded and ready to print pictures at any time. This is where the Photosmart printer beats out the Officejet printer line.
My tip. Don't buy a printer that is not designed for your needs. Try to understand how your wireless network is setup and use that knowledge when setting up the new printer. By the way, HP printers almost set themselves up on a wireless network.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by michgirl So disappointed
I have owned HP printers since 1996, always selecting a Photosmart printer and being so happy with the results. My 4 1/2 year old HP Photosmart c309g recently died and I replaced it with this one. For the first time in many years, I felt the quality of the HP printer had declined, it felt to cheaply made and flimsy. The photo prints were so disappointing, lacking color and blacks were just muddy looking. For days I played with settings, trying different paper, etc and was never satisfied. I was also greatly disappointed that this HP printer no longer had the ability to make custom sized paper. I own different HP paper products that require custom sizing and no they were obsolete with this printer. Today I took it back and exchanged it for a different brand, the first time in 16 years that I considered another brand. The new one far exceeds this HP printer and was $20 cheaper. Sadly leaving HP.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by check This product has problems
Wireless features will not work.I call techical support two times. They tried walking me through the problems. Each time we thought the problem was solved. It was not. After all the frustration and time on the phone, i gave up and installed a usb cable. Why have a wireless printer if its features do not work. I have always purchase HP printers and received great service. i do not recommend this model.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by conn24 A bit disappointed
O.K., so I get this is for light use, and I do only use it for light use. And, I get it is inexpensive and you get what you pay for. I'm a Salesperson that works out of my office. I don't run a lot thru this peripheral because it probably couldn't handle what I really need, so I outsource most large jobs.
That said, it has some decided inadequacies:
- Jamming: Paper Jams
- Print Options: Problems changing from Letter to Envelope printing
- Copying: I knew this upfront when I bought it, but really wished it had sheet feeder
- Print Option Settings: I had a high-end HP Printer/Copier, Office Type, at one time. One thing I loved about it was it remembered file settings and you didn't have to change a setting every time you changed a print job. This low end unit does not have that. I wished HP would step up and make that part of their default on any Printer/Copier Type Hardware they make.
