HP Deskjet 3520 Review

 

If you are looking for a simple at-home printer that functions mainly to print word documents, you should consider the HP Deskjet 3520 wireless all-in-one printer. Because this printer's primary function is printing documents, its handling of photos...

You can download a handful of apps directly to the printer. This makes it easier to print from more devices than just your computer.

The mobile printing capabilities don't work with Android devices.

Mobile printing is fantastic, and while this printer works well for standard document printing, it falls short with graphics and photos.

Prints quickly. Decent scanner. Has an automatic duplexer.

Ink cartridges are ridiculously small. You run out of ink fairly quickly.

HP DeskJet 3520

 

Be forewarned: Regardless of price ~~ Don't EVER be tempted to purchase this. (There was no option for checking off ZERO eggs.)

Light, Looks nice. Scans reasonably good to computer. But there it's pros end.

Absolutely the WORST printer I ever had. Paper feed jams way toooo many times. Print quality is lousy; Have to clean inkjets 3 times every time I print a new project. Top half is nice an black, then bottom half of same page fades into nothingness....

You get what you pay for.

 

I'm dealing with it for the time being, but if I'd have paid more I'd have sent it back right away. You get what you pay for, but this is a first for me with an HP product, and I have many.

I bought the machine as a copier and it has good quality

It's loud, but more annoying is the fact that you have to assist the paper feed each time. I've tried more paper, less paper and amounts in between in the paper tray, but nothing corrects the problem

Works as the other crapped out

 

It replaced the exact same model that broke with the dreaded 'head exception; that they do. It works just like the original and the kids have an extra box to play with

Came working out of the box

Work, But annoying.

 

Spend the few extra bucks and get a printer that will wake up automatically and reconnect when you try to print something. Save the headache. I wish I did.

It works. Looks nice. Easy Set up

Goes into sleep mode and won't print unless it is turned off and back on. Becomes very annoying after a little while ; Occasionally have connectivity issues but usually works

Unsatisfied

 

It prints well, when it works. Has a nice user interface, and good features. Can print from cell phones, computers, and other devices.

It does not hold the wireless connection to the router for more than 30 minutes. I contacted HP about the first one I had, they had me reset to factory settings the first time, give it a static IP (even though my router already did that), and that did...
