Print Quality & Speed

This printer is above par when it comes to multifunction printers around the same price. The 7520 e produces crisp, dark, black text even at small fonts. The quality is even comparable to some low-end laser printers. The device has a printing resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi and a scanning resolution of 1200 x 2400, which is lower than some printers on our lineup. While printing times for the Photosmart are average for wireless printers – 14 ppm for mono prints and 10 ppm for colors – this printer takes more than a minute to print 4 x 6 photos. Photos and color graphics such as charts have accurate colors, though larger prints tend to come out blurry. The photo quality is still better than what you can get at your local store.


The Photosmart 7520 has everything you need to connect to more than just your wireless network. HP includes AirPrint, which is compatible with iOS devices. All you have to do is choose the connect printer from your mobile device and hit Print. The printer also includes HP ePrint Home & Biz application that is compatible with iOS and Android devices.


One drawback to the printer's connectivity options is the lack of an Ethernet port. You won't have the options for a wired network, so the printer has to connect by Wi-Fi for you to use any of the web apps. Once the printer is ready to go, you can use it to print coloring pages, greeting cards and even CD cover art. The printer also features duplex printing.

One thing you will really like about this wireless inkjet printer is its design. The printer only weighs 18 pounds, is 5 inches tall and 17 inches deep. You can place it anywhere and not worry about it taking up a lot of space. This inkjet printer also has a 4.3-inch color touchscreen that is as responsive as that on any tablet or smartphone. This way, you can find what you need in the menu without pushing too many buttons. The 125-sheet tray limits the capacity of jobs you want to print, but a 20-sheet photo tray that loads up to 5 x 7 papers helps the cause.
