HP Photosmart 7520 review

 

It feels strange to call the HP Photosmart 7510 a legacy model considering it hit store shelves only last year, but HP has already issued an upgrade in the form of the new Photosmart 7520, an equally efficient all-in-one device that adds a few useful...

The HP Photosmart 7520 all-in-one is a cost-efficient introduction to the world of cloud access, remote printing, and simple interactions with the unit's large 4.33-inch color touch screen.

With no support for Ethernet, this printer won't do much for IT shoppers looking to link to a hardwired network.

The HP Photosmart 7520 earns its "all-in-one" moniker and adds cloud printing, remote accessibility, wireless connectivity, and app downloads to its list of features for busy households and small offices.

HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One

 

The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One inkjet MFP is a strong contender for a light-duty home and home office use.

High-quality output. Prints. Scans. Faxes. Copies. Touch-screen controls. Wi-Fi. Prints through the cloud. Duplex printing.

No Ethernet. Web-based features available only though a Wi-Fi connection.

HP Photosmart 7520 Review: Worth The Upgrade?

 

HP sneaked the Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One into their lineup, replacing the previous generation Photosmart 7510.

HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This striking-looking, photo-optimized AIO churns out great-looking photographs, but at an exceedingly high cost per page. Overall, though, it's a strong-performing printer, best for light duty.

Prints great-looking photos ; Reasonably fast ; Unusually attractive chassis ; Easy to set up and use

A little pricey ; Very high cost per page ; No Ethernet support

While overall we found the Photosmart 7520 a fine printer, especially when printing photos, this model’s high CPPs and its low-yield print cartridges gave us pause. Some other AIOs churn out comparable photos at a lower per-page cost, and, if you use...

HP Photosmart 7520

 

For light home use, the modern and beautifully designed HP Photosmart 7520 will fit a wide range of needs. With its fantastic printing quality and extra features, the Photosmart is one of the best all-in-one printers available. Unfortunately, its heavy...

Optional automatic apps deliver comics, children's activities and recipes for your entertainment

Photos and color prints drain the ink quickly, and the cost of replacement cartridges make each print very expensive

For occasional home use, the HP Photosmart 7520 delivers all the features you need and the high quality you deserve.

HP Photosmart 7520 Review

 

The HP Photosmart 7520 is a wireless all-in-one printer that is great for any home or home office. While it lacks the Ethernet port you find on almost all printers, this cloud-ready wireless printer connects via Wi-Fi to give you access to Google Cloud...

The Photosmart's 4.33-inch color touchscreen makes it easy to interact with the printer and its applications.

This printer has no Ethernet support.

The price is right and this small-office and home-sized printer has the performance and wireless printing tools for long-term use.
