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

 

Call it IIS: Incremental Inkjet Syndrome. In mid-to-late 2012, HP started replacing its consumer-grade Photosmart line of all-in-one (AIO) printers with modestly upgraded models. The Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One Printer, for example, has gained a few...

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

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.

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...

Great printer!

The direct wireless printing is terrible to set up as the instructions are not enough help. You will have to call HP for assistance. But go ahead, they are very good and nice to work with. Called me back the next day to see if printer was working the...
