The printer has great features!
4 Star Review   By Triton05 on HP - May 13, 2013   

The printer meets all the specifications that are adverstised - easy to use, easy to install, wireless ready, etc. The printer is also quick wihile processing the average documents. One downfall is that the printer seems to create horizontal lines going across the print while making "photos" on the photo paper. The lines occur about every 0.5" down the paper. It seems that it may be due to the width of the print head. I would not expect this from an HP Printer that was advertised to print high quality photos.

1 Star Review   By britchick on HP - May 12, 2013   

I have had this printer for 4 months and I love the features it has and the wifi...I DO NOT like the fact that it jams ALL the time..just printed 3 pages..Had to clear jam 9 times...This isn't a one time occurrence.It happens ALL the time..I would not recommend this printer unless you enjoy endless trips to unjam it..Pointless to have wifi when you have to be next to it to unjam constantly

Excellent product!
5 Star Review   By CharleymTX on HP - May 8, 2013   

Once the paper feeder grabbed 10 sheets of paper, but only once so far. The duplex print worked perfect when I tested it, and yes, it is selectable so it can be turned off. The scanner is excellent, with a preview scan so the final scan can be adjusted. Wireless is excellent. My laptop says "The Toolbox could not be loaded." If I knew what that was, I could fill the toolbox and maybe it would be loaded. Both the laptop (connected with wireless) and the desktop (connected by USB) kept telling me the scanner was not available, even though it always was. I could not correct this, either, so just asked that it not be loaded at start-up. This did not affect the scanner in any way. Overall, great product. Excellent product for the cost.

some troubles
4 Star Review   By phoenix7910 on HP - Mar 25, 2013

Very Disappointed
1 Star Review   By DK22 on HP - Mar 12, 2013   

I have two of these printers. The first one worked great which is why I decided to purchase a second one. Unfortunately the second one is awful. The paper continuously jams or registers that the tray is empty when it is not. Even when it was just printing, On one print job, every time I tried to print the entire job, I go jibberish. I ended up printing page by page.

Love the automatic duplex printing
5 Star Review   By MidnightAvenge on HP - Mar 12, 2013   

I have had this printer since December and love it. At first it wouldn't link up with my laptop, found out that my laptop had registry errors. When got the problem solved, no problems. It jammed once but that was due to pushing the paper to far. The quick forms are nice, haven't tried the apps yet. So far, I'm loving it.

Paper jams all the time
2 Star Review   By Shiblee on HP - Feb 28, 2013   

I bought this after seeing a pretty good rating. However, paper started jamming from the very first print (test print). Even the Advanced photo paper that was given for free jammed multiple times. I've used many HP and other printers before, but never seen so much problem with paper jamming.

paper jams
1 Star Review   By chloes7 on HP - Feb 21, 2013   

I don't think I've printed a single thing in the last 4 months of having this printer without having to check it for a "paper jam" or "paper tray empty" when neither of these things were true! What's the point of having a wireless printer if I have to go sit in front of it and coax it into pulling in a piece of paper!?!?! And the wireless is just awful! Half the time it takes 10 minutes to print something!!!! Drives me crazy--I'll never buy this printer again. The one I got for free from the Apple store was better.

5 Star Review   By KLS6299 on HP - Feb 21, 2013

4 Star Review   By lovely55 on HP - Feb 21, 2013   

I am enjoying the product. The print quality is good. When printing it says ink is drying out and it will automatically go to 2-sided printing. I changed the settings. I hope that it solves my problem.

Great wireless printer
5 Star Review   By Robert103 on HP - Feb 19, 2013   

Was surprised at how easy it was to set up wireless and Internet printing. Our printer area is in a different part of the house from where we typically work with laptops, IPads, IPhone so was always a pain to walk up there and "plug in". Never could print from the IPads/IPhones before, now we can. Really could not have been more easy to set-up. It is noisy, but that's the beauty of wireless printing, we don't have to hear it.

Small, compact, but acts like one of the big boys
5 Star Review   By Nursie on HP - Feb 16, 2013   

This is a really good size printer that doesn't take up acres of space on my desk. It 's very easy to use, and I love the new wireless features. It is to replace one that was also a photosmart of an previous model, which I also liked enough to buy it's big brother. The quality of photos is great,it's quick, and exactly what I'd recommend to others. I've used printers that cost 4 times this amount, and my Photosmart out prints all of 'em. Absolutely positively recommended.

Poor quality...paper jams
1 Star Review   By Alexandre on HP - Feb 10, 2013

Just ask the printer
4 Star Review   By gloright on HP - Feb 8, 2013   

The paper instructions were not very useful. I found the printer knew what it needed. All I had to do was tap the touchscreen to find out why it wasn't connected to my wifi. Duh! It needed a password. Times like these you feel pretty dumb. I haven't had the printer long enough to comment on the ink usage. I'm hoping it will not use as much as my old photosmart.

HP PhotoSmart 5520
1 Star Review   By Swoop on HP - Jan 31, 2013   

Nice sleek appearance and when it prints it is nice. However, it jams a lot, more so than my last. Key is to keep "lots" of paper in the tray, but still, never had that issue with my other one. At $79, you get what you pay for. Sad and Unfortunate.

this printer is perfect for home printing, coping and scaning. I don't print alot at home but the quality is very good for the cost of the printer. It is a little noisy but, it's not a big deal since I don't use it that often. Over all it is a good printer

So far, so good
4 Star Review   By faith on HP - Jan 18, 2013   

So far, so good... I was apprehensive if I would be able to set up the printer initially. I am not a computer geek even though I have owned one for years. Everything I have learned about their use has been the hard way. I expected this would be no different. Overall I was surprised that the set up was basically easy. However, I think this was partially due to my willingness to just forge through my fear, and do it anyway. I am not using it wireless, so I think some of the features do not apply. I have printed two pictures and the quality is good. This is one reason I wanted this home use printer.I did have a hard time getting the tops off of the ink cartridges. Over all I rate it good, and above. .

Terrible
1 Star Review   By abrn04 on HP - Jan 15, 2013   

I have been reading some of the other reviews for this printer but nobody seems to be having the same problem I am, for every one paper that prints, 4-6 papers jam up on a small area inside the printer. I bought this printer because the features looked to be just what I needed and I was excited about the wireless aspect. I even bought extra ink when I bought it. The pictures prints with a line running through it appproximately every inch so I can't use it for my photos and, as I stated previously, I can hardly get it to print. It is so frustrating and aggravating because HP has made some of my favorite electronics in the past, but this is terrible. Hopefully you can see from my pictures all the trouble that I am having. I have attempted to print a story of my daughters for a writing contest and have so far wasted 7 pieces of paper.

It was easy to set up - easy to get all aligned, etc, and easy to use. I love all the features - especially the fact that it is wireless as my last printer was broken because my cat knocked it down from where it sat. Now i put in on a shelf in the closet! Love it!

Windows 8 compatibility needs work
3 Star Review   By Hornet on HP - Jan 2, 2013   

Just spent the last two hours with HP support getting this printer installed. While the HP website may say that it is Windows 8 compatible, the installation software didn't work with our new HP Windows 8 laptop. Very frustrating to specifically look for a printer able to support Windows 8 and then run into this issue. Fortunately HP Instant Care was able to remote in and resolve the issue, but I found the whole process very, very frustrating.

HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One Printer
5 Star Review   By upsfeeder88 on HP - Dec 29, 2012   

The HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One Printer does everything from Copy, Scan and print, but the best feature was the on screen detailed instructions on how set-up, load paper, and the features of how to use this printer. You can print wirelessly from your Desktop, Laptop, Tablet, iPad, iPhone, android, etc. This was an easy unit to set up, install and run that you do not have to have any experience at all. Just plug it in and it tells you what to do. I rate this 5 stars. This was a Christmas gift for my son. It was recommended by Christine Kane from HP on QVC. She was right on! Thanks Christine and thanks HP!

Easy setup
5 Star Review   By Syakak on HP - Dec 29, 2012   

Shipping was great. Arrived in two days to bush AK. I printed from my mobile device within 20 minutes of removing the printer from the box. No apps required and runs through our satelite internet. i have not used it enough to review performance or reliability. This replaced an HP photosmart that we've used for years but lacked AirPrint/ wireless function.

Quite Happy
5 Star Review   By Zhoser on HP - Dec 25, 2012   

My last HP Deskjet had a separate tray which could be loaded with 4x6 or 5x7 photo paper and left in place, which was convenient for printing photos any time without removing paper from the main tray. If you are looking for that, you should choose another model. However, if you don't mind switching out the paper to print photos, this model is an excellent choice. I've had no troubles, the print quality is great, and I especially love the double-side printing, which is automatic - you only have to load the paper once, and the printer automatically prints both sides. A super convenient paper saver!

4 Star Review   By Lexi1 on HP - Dec 24, 2012   

I will always order from hp,they make ordering and finding the right product for me so simple. The shipping process is always on time, I've never had a problem with anything. My photosmart printer 5520 was everything they said it would be. I'm completely satisfied. Thanks HP!

printer is less than I expected
2 Star Review   By Ruby2 on HP - Dec 16, 2012   

This printer is not quite what I expected. Pages of text print quite nicely. Pictures print out darker than what I had on my computer screen. Pictures print out with lines in them. I expected much better results from something named "Photo Smart". The page catcher (no actual tray) for completed pages sticks out quite far from the body of the printer and seems it will be very easily broken off if not folded back in after each use. We purchased a Dell laptop that operates on Windows 8 that cannot recognize the printer because the printer wants Windows 7. So, for now, we have to keep our outdated desktop which does recognize the printer.

Printer was purchased for ePrint purposes
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - Dec 15, 2012   

We purchased this mainly because we needed something for my wife's iPad. It more than serves the purpose and we've replaced our other printer with this one. It is fast and so far, very dependable.

While I haven't had a chance to see the full potential of this product I am amazed how easy it was to set up and the print quality is very good.

bigist problem
4 Star Review   By sharlene on HP - Dec 9, 2012   

you need to make sure the paper is from a new stack, if you take it out to put in pictures, the old paper will get caught in the printer and jams it up. it was a decent price i paid for it, so it should not had done this, for a home printer.

This product has great features
4 Star Review   By Cookie24 on HP - Dec 8, 2012   

The Hp 5520 E-all-in-one-printer is perfect for all the everyday tasks I use it for. Photos come out with a very professional look along with many other features that are very useful for everyone in the family. On the business side, this unit performs flawlessly with exceptional prints that are brilliant in color or black and white. Very nice printer!

Disappointed in Features
3 Star Review   By Fred0509 on HP - Nov 23, 2012   

I have owned at least 4 HP printers over 20 years. The 5520 is a great disappointment. My previous HP printer had the sheet feed, a 4x6 in photo print feed and if you need to print an envelope you could feed it in on top of the 8x11 in sheets. With the 5520 you have to remove the 8x11 paper so that you can move the guides to put the envelopes in the feeder. You have to do the same for the 4x6 photo paper. Sometimes it works with the photos and sometimes it does not. I am now ready to look at other brands of printers.

Easy to setup and use
4 Star Review   By jeremy480 on HP - Nov 8, 2012   

I haven't tried the wireless features yet, but very happy with the print quality and speed and it was very easy to setup and use! Seems like it could use a tray (or something) to capture the printed pages as they come out, but otherwise it works great.

Perfect!!!
5 Star Review   By GrammaDee1 on HP - Nov 7, 2012   

I bought this printer to use only with my iPad. It prints from anywhere and I find I'm using it now for ALL my printing needs, although I have two other wired printers.. My son and daughter live in different states so I bought one for each of them so we can now send emails directly to our respective printers...mostly for pictures. My son is in graduate school...he sends me his theme paper drafts to my email. I edit them and send the finished product directly to his printer. I don't remember how we did without it. Thanks, HP!

Love ePrint from Apple devices
4 Star Review   By Edward33 on HP - Nov 6, 2012   

I purchased this 5520 primarily for the Air Print capability with iPod Touch and iPad2. Works perfectly. Did need to quickly scan and email a document for a utility issue. Scan feature did not work. I had to reload all the software (OSX) from Support site since CD I received did not cover Mountain Lion. On this second load, I went into the hard disc and dropped down the HP Scan application onto the dock. It now functions as my old C4790 did. My only complaint now is that if you are printing photos on 4x6 HP Premium paper, you need to push the paper way back almost out of your reach to get it to load when printing. This printer also holds about half as much paper as the old C Series did. Other than these few issues, it works great wirelessly and is pretty fast.

Poor features
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - Sep 30, 2012   

I cannot print pictures with this printer. The guides for HP 4X6" photo paers move to the center of the printer rather than the right side and nothing prints. I would use a lot more of your ink if I could only print pictures from my computer==not a flash drive!

This printer works well.
4 Star Review   By amylynn on HP - Sep 20, 2012   

This printer works wonderful. I only have two negative comments about it. The paper loader is very inconvenient. It loads from the front at the bottom of the printer. It constricts where you store it. The other problem is really just an annoyance. The printer is VERY loud! It makes alot of noise getting ready to print and continues until finished. But it prints very quickly and the quality is great. Overall it is one of the best printers I have used.

Good bang for the buck. Setup was easy wirelessly. Construction is a little cheesey but works fine.

Software needs to improve capabilities
2 Star Review   By abnranger on HP - Sep 6, 2012   

I have had two HP printers over the years and purchased this printer for the 2-sided printing features. I found that if I printed a multiple page document, the software automatically printed the document "with borders," which changed the specified document margins and compressed the font size. If I selected "no borders" and "2-side" printing, a message would appear saying the two selections were incompatible and would not allow it. I could select "without borders" and print single side and get the proper font size, but the left margin was shifted slightly to the left. The sales personnel at Office Depot could not explain what was happening. I was very disappointed with this printer, because I expect a printer to print the document's specified margins, fonts, and font sizes. Since this printer would not do this, I returned the printer and exchanged it for an Epson 730. The Epson 730 printed the specified margins and font size. HP can make the HP 5520 a great printer if they would change the software to eliminate the problem with 2-sided printing of multipage documents.

Just a very nice printer
4 Star Review   By Umikie on HP - Aug 27, 2012   

Hey this is a great little printer. Love the wireless, easy setup, front loading and front controls. Separate ink cartidiges are nice too. This printer is no louder than comparable models.

5520e is adequate for home use
4 Star Review   By emhuze on HP - Aug 19, 2012   

The printer was professionally installed using a wireless connection.. I have a pretty beefy router & it runs smoothly. Setup looked fairly easy & uncomplicated. I think I could have done it on my own. Still using the Setup cartridges and so far: photo printing looked good, regular printing = good (I use draft status to save on ink), successfully printed an envelope and some labels. All looked good. My last printer, hp 6380, was noisier than the 5520 - so I don't have a problem with the little amount of noise from the 5520. Some of the parts are made of plastic too thin to last long, giving a sense of fragility. (specifically the paper tray area). All in all seems simple and dependable.. so far.

Few features for the price.

Performs as advertised
4 Star Review   By Texagander on HP - Aug 6, 2012   

The printer is what I expected, the quality and performance were very good. The paper tray is a pain in the behind, but works. It is obvious that the design engineer never tried to load paper. Over all this is other wise a very good printer for the money

A fine utility printer
4 Star Review   By BillyPat64 on HP - Aug 5, 2012   

The printer arrived in good condition and had all the features I need. With four (!) print cartridges, setup took longer than I was used to. The wireless hookup is quite effective with my router. I find that when I turn it on, the bootup is a lengthy process, so I just leave the printer on overnite. Copies are good and reasonably fast. It is not as easy to print on two sides as my other HP.

So far so good
4 Star Review   By docg33 on HP - Jul 30, 2012   

We have only had this printer for a week, and so far so good. It was super easy to set up. I love the wifi printing feature and it has great print quality. My only complaint is that it does sound like it is going to crumble apart when it starts up. But, it doesn't!

Easy set up
4 Star Review   By Paulrn on HP - Jun 30, 2012   

I just bought this printer and it was very easy to set up wirelessly for my Mac and PC. The picture quality is great. The only complaint I have would be that it is made out of cheap plastic. The paper tray does not slide in well and I had to turn the unit on it's head to aline the paper tray. No big deal, but you can tell this is not the top of the line construction. All in all I am very happy with how it performs and am pleased with my purchase.
