5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good.... 31 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
As a computer technician and troubleshooter I have plenty of experience in fixing faulty printers (read replace!) and came a cropper myself when after 5 years use my Canon MP620 decided to give the dreaded 6210 error which meant powering it down before every print job with the resulting loss of ink as it re-initialised and cleaned every time! Well, that's out on the street waiting for someone to rescue it or the garbage man to take. Half and hour into installing my replacement HP 6520, I have printed superb photo's from computer (wirelessly) from iPhone (airprint). Scanned and copied to email and pdf. Utilised the printing to hpeprint.com that allows printing from any device anywhere directly to my printer via a dedicated email address. Tested and smiled inanely as the paper was sucked back in when printing duplex sheets (two sided). Great access to all settings via touch-screen the size of my iPhone, quick start-up and print which was a real bugbear with the Canon. The only thing it doesn't do is print directly to printable CD/DVD's. Well pleased, checked that inks from HP are pretty expensive, but compatibles are out there with good reviews. I'll place further comments if anything changes.l

4.0 out of 5 stars Only real flaw is the sheer number of paper jams 20 Jan 2013
I purchased this printer about 4 months ago to replace a rather tired (and increasing unreliable) Epson. So far my experience has been on the whole positive. The printer is seemingly economical in its use of ink, especially in comparison to previous printers I've had. Often it can seem that they waste ridiculous amounts of ink on processes such as cleaning the heads, but this cannot be said for this printer. The common availability of relatively inexpensive third party produced (i.e. not official HP) cartridges has also meant that replacing the cartridges in this printer has proven cheaper than my old Epson, and in the time I've had the printer I've probably saved about half the total cost of the printer on ink alone. Print speed is superb for both ordinary printing and photographs, and in terms of quality I have never had any cause for complaint at all. So all in all I have been extremely impressed with this printer.

However I have encountered one problem. This is the ease with which this printer suffers from paper jams. I've never really had this issue with other printers before, and I've found it extremely time consuming (and annoying!) to deal with repeated jams. To give a rough indication of how frequent they are I would say it has happened to me about 6 or 7 times since I got the printer. Orginally I thought it may be down to the paper I was using (which was admittedly the cheapest junk I could find) but since using proper/good quality paper I have not really noticed any improvement in this problem at all. It may well be that I simply have a dodgy printer or that I'm doing something wrong, but given how difficult it can be to get the printer to allow you to continue printing after a jam this may not be the ideal choice for those looking for the simplest to use printer.

That said, the various qualities of this printer do for me outweigh the annoyance that the jamming issue causes and is certainly a good choice for those looking to upgrade.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I have owned several printers and being a software engineer often get asked to fix others. In past I've always found HP to be the best and have had mine for many years without trouble.

However this unit has been quite a disappointment.

Whilst features such as ePrint and Wifi are very convenient and easy to set up. The print quality is quite poor, particularly considering this is supposed to be a photo printer and cost of ownership is very high.

Faults I've had so far:
- The printer wakes up randomly and makes a load of noise (as if it's head cleaning or calibrating). This can be very annoying if you are on the phone at the time.
- It occasionally makes a hideous noise of grinding gears.
- The black had started to smear and smudge. I ran the head cleaning program and it didn't fix it. Then magenta wasn't working properly. Given the printer is used several times a week, I would not expect heads to become dried and blocked.
- When printing solid blocks of colour, horizontal lines of light and dark show (bad calibration).
- When using the webservices, some menu options return "Error with Printer"

5.0 out of 5 stars Good printer form home / small business use 17 Mar 2013

Have had HP printers for a while now and the last two have been all-in-ones. When my last one finally gave up the ghost I thought it may be worth looking at other vendors to see what else was out there. After much musing and researching I found myself back at HP and the 6520 e-All-in-one. My main requirement this time round was the auto duplex feature and printing from my iPad/iPhone/other smartphones - all of which work a treat.

Very easy and quick to set up. Had it connected to my wireless network and printing within about 10 mins of removing all of the packing. The printer also has the Internet printing feature which is a nice to have but not essential.

Print quality is what I have come to expect from HP for both photos and office type documents. The scanner/copier function is also solid and about what you should expect for the price. There is a nice web utility for managing the printer which tells you how your ink is doing and control scanning.

For those with kids there are also a lot of free worksheets, puzzles and colouring sheets from various Disney and other providers to keep them entertained.
