HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One review: A welcome replacement

 

The $US129 (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...

If you want an MFP that's better than average-looking and covers all the basics for light use, the HP Photosmart 5520 is definitely worth a gander. If you're checking out other printers in this price range, the Brother MFC-J625DW ($130) is the most...

ABSOLUTE RUBBISH! Do not waste your time!

 

I purchased ink for my HP photosmart 5520 and it arrived on time without an issue, however, after issues with getting my printer to recognise it, I managed to print 4, yes, only 4 pages before it stopped working and the ink was dripping everywhere when...

built-in obsolescence expired prior to expectancy

 

well, i have purchased two of these printers now in a period of less than a year; as a printer it worked just fine for the short time i had each. as a scanner, forget it! the first printer scanned okay but broke up any and each A4 sheet into minuscule...

Worst printer I've had

 

Whilst I've only bought cheap throwaway type printers in the past, they have all lasted long enough to justify their existence. I've mostly had Canon (and will probably go back there) but have had others that do a serviceable job for what we use it for...

I hate this printer

 

My old trustworthy HP photosmart C6270 broke down after 7 years of service. Was advised the HP Photosmart 5520 was the present day replacement so I bought it. Everytime I use it I feel like smashing my head against the wall. First it takes a really...

Does its Job

 

I have used it for more than a month now - so far so good. It prints well and easy to setup - i am using linux and it works well on linux too.

Not the best HP I've used to date

 

Does the job but is noisy and seems to take forever to go through it's setup process when turned on. Compared to previously used compact desktop HP all-in-ones, this one doesn't impress me. It does have extra features, such as it can print to both...

Great wireless printer scanner

 

I've moved away from using the laptop and now use the ipad for pretty well everything...with the help of some good apps. I bought the HP 5520 to print and scan wirelessly from the ipad. Some of the reviews I read about this model were less than...

Easy simple and works via my wifi. Excellent print quality. It was cheap too. Best value for money

The written instructions in the box were confusing. Just nut it out for yourself..too easy.
