HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer Review: Midpriced MFP for Home or Student Use

 

The HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer is a midpriced ($150 as of 08/13/2012) consumer-level color inkjet multifunction printer with a good set of features for light-volume home or student use. If you're trying to decide between this model and its...

Good output quality ; Automatic duplexing

Picture-heavy, detail-light onscreen documentation ; No automatic document feeder

For a light-volume home or student user, this multifunction offers decent speed and features, and average-priced inks.

HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One

 

Touch-screen control panel. Wi-Fi. Prints through the cloud. Duplex (two sided) printing

No Ethernet. Web-based features available only though a Wi-Fi connection to a network connected to the internet

The HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One offers reasonably high-quality output along with Web-based features that are available only if you connect it to your network by Wi-Fi.

HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This entry-level AIO inkjet prints nice photos, but its unusually high cost per page diminishes the overall value. Overall, though, it prints well, and it's fast for the price.

Prints good-looking photos ; Speedy for price ; Easy to set up and use ; Dedicated snapshot-paper tray

Unusually high CPPs ; No Ethernet support ; No ADF ; No support for USB devices

In terms of price and cost per page, we liked the Kodak ESP 3.2 a little better than this particular Photosmart model. Between these two entry-level machines, the output quality is comparable, but the cost of operation is a good bit lower on the ESP...

HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One review

 

Above the HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One sits the scanner, which has basic specs: a letter/A4-size platen, a lid that doesn't telescope to accommodate thicker materials, and no automatic document feeder for scanning multipage documents. (In this price...

Offering better-than-basic features and speed, the Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One would be a reasonable choice for a home or student user who prints no more than a few dozen pages per week. For the same price, you can get more paper handling and a few...

HP never again!

 

I'm sick and tired of the runaround from HP. After buying HP exclusively I'll never buy another HP product again. When I hit control-P, I expect my printer to work, without fail, without question. When I contact a company's servivce department I expect...

Great printer!

 

I purchased this as a gift for my parents. They love how easy it is to use and the quality of the prints. I also like it because you can buy the ink cartridges separately by color instead of having to replace all of the ink when just one color is...
