Average At Best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One Printer (Accessory)
This is my third HP printer in as many years. Admittedly they get put to good use and each time a replacement is bought, the price has fallen. This offers good facilities for the price and when it works produces good quality documents and photos. However it can be very temperamental especially with regard to the scanning facility.
Once you've replaced all the ink cartridges a couple of times, you've virtually paid out the price of a new printer! That's the problem nowadays ... manufacturers churn out the printers at low prices then rob the unwary consumer with the high costs of replacement ink cartridges!
There are many companies out there offering compatible cartridges at much lower prices but to date I've been unsuccessful in finding any who's cartridges will actually work in my printer. Very cleverly it knows when a non HP cartridge is installed and fails to accept it.
As a result I only award it 3 stars as undoubtedly I'll need another new one before the year is out.
