Q & As


HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer 4.1 5 41 41
Bit Dissappointed My other HP printer for home use only packed in after 1.5 years no guaranteed. Bought a 6520e because inks are compatible with older model. After a week the paper on the 6520e kept jamming and there was obviously a major fault. To give John Lewis their due they did replace it but there was a mix up with delivery date coming a day early and left with neighbours meant rearranging another day for collection of broken item. 12 July 2014
1st Class Product I have had excellent results from all types of prints . 08 July 2014
Wi-Fi at last! An HP rep was in store on the day we visited. Gave us a full explanation of all printers that would be suitable, and helped us decide on the 6520. Quite easy to set up (even for an old user) and were able to connect both PC and Tablet wirelessly. So far have had excellent results with no problems. Thank you John Lewis 08 July 2014
Easy to use Was dreading setting up this new printer but there was no need to worry. It was very straight forward. Prints great photos from both iPad and PC. 24 June 2014
Great Product Easy to set up and use. Wifi connectivity excellent. Replaces an earlier HP Photosmart printer, unfortunately cheaper to replace than to repair. Only disappointment/negative - found that the pull out lever, to prevent copies ending up on the floor, to be very flimsy and of poor quality, however it does actually work so no major problems so far. Excellent 2 year guarantee with John Lewis. 11 June 2014
Not what we expected from HP Slightly disappointed in the quality of output. Image area on the scanner is restrictive. Likewise large image area on printed page is difficult to achieve. Output colour is not as vibrant as the previous HP printer we had. 04 June 2014
Excellent medium price printer Good medium sized printer, cartridges at reasonable prices and works well with my Samsung Tablet using the hp eprint apps 27 May 2014
Functional & easy Well packaged and easy to set up, including wi-fi connection. Straightforward to use, with copying, scanning & printing all easily done. Replaced an older model HP Photosmart whose printheads failed and alas cheaper to replace than repair, so although it wasn't a planned purchase it has taken over seamlessly from where the other one left off. Good for day-to-day home use, giving good, speedy quality at a reasonable price. Recommended. 12 May 2014
