    If you need a cheap auto-feed scanner, this is the cheapest, but that's all you're getting. The printer is limited to printing JPG files, with no PDF support which basically means it's not a printer. It's a gumbal machine plastic toy in the shape of a printer that little kids can pretend to do print work on. In short, it's the Easy Bake oven of photo printers. You get something that looks like an office multifunctional printer, but it's really just a scanner.

    As for scanning, the document feed hardware, like the flatbed hardware, like the printer hardware, is beautiful. The brain dead user interface is what renders the scanner half-useless, because when you put in a stack of documents to scan front and back, and select "2-sided" from the menu, the auto feed has a habit of frequently sucking up multiple pages at a time, and if the printer sucks up two pages at a time on a "2-sided" print job, especially after scanning 30 pages slowly through the auto-feed, then back through again at the flip side, the only option is to cancel the WHOLE job. That's when I realized why the Canon is so much more expensive. The interface on this one is so neglectfully bad, with a thoughtless little amount of time was put into make it usable, you'll be constantly making up for HP's mistakes with your extra time, like having to constantly convert documents into blurry JPG files to use the printer -- even though it lets you scan to PDF! -- and digging out all the pages you just scanned twice double sided, because it didn't tell you until the end a page stuck and it refuses to save the entire scan job. Add to that an on/off button at the lip of the flatbed scanner, exactly where the indention is to lift the lid, meaning you'll turn it off more than you'll get it open to scan, and you realize two teams had fun with this product: the industrial designers, and the user interface icon designers.

    Just a little more thought and actual end user testing would have made all the difference, but even though I've learned the hard way through wasted hours learning work arounds on this product, I still appreciate the fact that the interface defects are so bad, and the price lowered so low because of it, that I actually got an affordable auto-feed scanner. I'll never use it as a printer though, and I've had to add a tacky sticky note that ruins all that sleek industrial design to warn everybody not to use the cruel joke of a lose your entire scan, 2-sided print job.

      Comments about HP Photosmart 7520 Wireless Color e-All-In-One Inkjet Printer:

      Always buy HP. B&H beat all prices. Even when I bought the ext. warranty, B&H still beats all other prices. I was looking for an all in one....to include faxing. What I was particularly interested in was the automatic duplex printing. (auto print both sides) and the sheet fed duplex copy/scanner. I hate having to lift the hood to copy front then the back. If you have 4 or 5 pages to do....you surely know what I mean. Being a teacher, and anti paper organizing person....yeah, I love this machine. The value is unbelievable. This printer fixes that problem of printing a book with images on both sides. It can auto feed 25 pages at a time....scan or copy front and back....AUTOMATICALLY. It has many other bells and whistles like being web based. It can print games and forms the HP has on their website. You can do about anything you could imagine with this printer even without a computer....Want to use your phone or tablet and no network. You are good. WIFI Direct. The menu on the printer when attached to the web and a jump drive....you can do about anything you want with it. If you do much printing....next to a laserjet that offers color and same functions and whistles....Best printer out there in my opinion.

          The 4x6 pictures come out truest to the color that I have ever seen in a desktop "non-professional" printer. I like loading a tray of 4x6 paper and print, print, print - no wasted time with individual feeding of the paper.

                Use this for home, and do not print that often, but so far is a great printer. Easy set-up including wireless feature. I set default printing to draft and black/white so as not to eat up cartridges too fast. A leading consumers magazine gave this printer a good score, so am trusting them as to reliability. B&H beat the price of the big box store that often is cheapest prices around.

                        I use this printer at home. Very easy to wireless print from my IMac, IPad, Iphone .Also, I love the scan/email feature. In addition, it produces beautiful pictures with sharp colors.Overall, this is the best HP Photoprinter I have purchased throughout my printing experience.

                            This printer replaces a 1st gen HP wireless Photosmart which was the least reliable printer I've ever owned. I am happy to say that not only is the 7520 extremely easy to set up, the wireless connectivity is amazing. I would have given this 5 stars, however, I have not yet used it enough to make that committment yet.

                              This printer is extremely awesome. For the price it would be hard to find a printer that can do what this one can. Quality is very good and set up was a snap.

                              I use the printer to print everything from business letters and spreadsheets, to note cards, 8X10 photos and advertisements. I print on regular weight paper, card stock, glossy photo paper, and everything in between. So far everything I've printed has turned out perfect. The copier and fax work great as well. I haven't used the scanner yet but if this model holds up as well as my earlier model did then this All-in-one Photosmart printer is well worth the money. An added bonus; it was very easy to set up.

                                Bought this to replace D7560 which used same cartridges but had no fax/scanner. Using this strictly for printing. Prints are crisp and beautifully, correctly colored.
                                Service from B&H excellent. Would definitely trade with them again.

                                  Comments about HP Photosmart 7520 Wireless Color e-All-In-One Inkjet Printer:

                                  If you need a cheap auto-feed scanner, this is the cheapest, but that's all you're getting. The printer is limited to printing JPG files, with no PDF support which basically means it's not a printer. It's a gumbal machine plastic toy in the shape of a printer that little kids can pretend to do print work on. In short, it's the Easy Bake oven of photo printers. You get something that looks like an office multifunctional printer, but it's really just a scanner.

                                  As for scanning, the document feed hardware, like the flatbed hardware, like the printer hardware, is beautiful. The brain dead user interface is what renders the scanner half-useless, because when you put in a stack of documents to scan front and back, and select "2-sided" from the menu, the auto feed has a habit of frequently sucking up multiple pages at a time, and if the printer sucks up two pages at a time on a "2-sided" print job, especially after scanning 30 pages slowly through the auto-feed, then back through again at the flip side, the only option is to cancel the WHOLE job. That's when I realized why the Canon is so much more expensive. The interface on this one is so neglectfully bad, with a thoughtless little amount of time was put into make it usable, you'll be constantly making up for HP's mistakes with your extra time, like having to constantly convert documents into blurry JPG files to use the printer -- even though it lets you scan to PDF! -- and digging out all the pages you just scanned twice double sided, because it didn't tell you until the end a page stuck and it refuses to save the entire scan job. Add to that an on/off button at the lip of the flatbed scanner, exactly where the indention is to lift the lid, meaning you'll turn it off more than you'll get it open to scan, and you realize two teams had fun with this product: the industrial designers, and the user interface icon designers.

                                  Just a little more thought and actual end user testing would have made all the difference, but even though I've learned the hard way through wasted hours learning work arounds on this product, I still appreciate the fact that the interface defects are so bad, and the price lowered so low because of it, that I actually got an affordable auto-feed scanner. I'll never use it as a printer though, and I've had to add a tacky sticky note that ruins all that sleek industrial design to warn everybody not to use the cruel joke of a lose your entire scan, 2-sided print job.

                                      Comments about HP Photosmart 7520 Wireless Color e-All-In-One Inkjet Printer:

                                      I use this printer for home use and partime business. I recieved it pretty fast 7-10 days and it was really easy to easy to set-up. I haven't had it very long so I don't know how the ink cartridges will last but it is faster for printing.
