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.

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...
