HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One

 

Touch-screen control panel. Wi-Fi. Prints through the cloud. Duplexes (prints on both sides of a page)

No Ethernet connector. No PictBridge support

The HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One is aimed primarily at home use, but offers some sophisticated features, like printing through the cloud, that are anything but basic.

HP Photosmart 5520

 

The HP Photosmart 5520 offers a ton of mobile printing options and fast speeds, but the print quality could be better.

Although the HP Photosmart 5520 is less expensive than either the Canon PIXMA MG6220 or the Epson WorkForce 845 and has a bevy of options -- such as printing calendars on the fly -- its lower-quality prints and noisiness prevent it from taking its...

HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One Review: A Welcome Replacement

 

The $129 (as of May 9, 2012) HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One color inkjet multifunction (copy/print/scan) is a decidedly welcome replacement for the HP Photosmart 5510 e-All-in-One--a handsome but disappointing product that lacked manual duplexing and...

Cheap to buy ; Good output quality

No automatic document feeder ; Scanner lid doesn't telescope

This low-cost multifunction printer offers the duplexing and layout options that its predecessor lacked, making it a better buy for low-volume use. Its touchpad makes it more stylish, too.

The HP Photosmart 5520 is an inexpensive multifunction printer that offers built-in duplexing, a touch panel and ePrint capabilities. It also provides reliable and good looking output but it lacks an automatic document feeder and the scanner lid hinge...

Affordable initial cost & ink, Wireless ePrint capabilities, Built-in duplexing, Very good output quality

Scanner lid hinge does not float, No automatic document feeder

HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One

 

The Photosmart 5520 offers the duplexing and layout options that its predecessor lacked, making it one of the better—and more stylish—buys among low-cost, low-volume multifunction printers.

Good output quality

No automatic document feeder ; Scanner lid doesn't telescope

Paper handling with the Photosmart 5520 is rudimentary, but adequate for low-volume use. An 80-sheet input tray sits at the bottom of the unit. Output exits just above that, falling onto the back of the input tray, where a swivel-out extension catches...

Although it's a useful home printer and scanner, this MFP produces some of the worst photos we've seen

HP Photosmart 5520

 

The HP Photosmart 5520 is a mid-range multifunction inkjet that excels in all the right areas.

60mm touchscreen with touch buttons ; AirPrint and Android App support ; Good running costs for budget printer

Messy paper stop design ; Awkward memory card slot ; Paper tray restricted to 80 sheets

There's a single USB socket at the back, but wireless is the most versatile connection and is easy to set up. Lift the scanner section up and the printhead, with its four individual ink cartridges slides into view. It's very straightforward to remove...

HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One review

 

The 80-sheet input tray isn't the most capacious, but its simple yet sturdy design gave us few feeding issues. Unlike the 7520, there's no additional photo tray, so you'll have to get used to mixing A4 and photo media if you want to use multiple...

A nice touchscreen interface and a delicious price tag helps make the HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One a contender, and its low running costs won't hurt either. Its performance is solid rather than stunning though.
