Q & As


HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer 4 5 32 32
Very expensive in ink, poor quality photo printing I'm really disappointed with this printer - first went back to amazon quickly when it kept having paper jams, second from JL hasn't had the paper jam (yet). Six months on and I've spent a fortune in replacement ink. Black XL cartridges manage about 50 pp before the software is demanding replacement. The quality of the photos is very poor, even on HP paper and with recommended settings. Air print works ok. Overall, this is not a cheap printer but it behaves like one. 04 April 2014
Just The Job Price was unbeatable from John Lewis, even cheaper than buying direct from Hewlett Packard. Although a little bit noisy, compared to my old Epson printer, it certainly fits the bill in all aspects. Easy to set-up (takes about one hour in total) and simple to use with the intuitive touch screen. Scans relatively quickly, prints and copies very quickly - still have not tried the wireless printing from my tablet or laptop but don't envisage any problems. The two year guarantee from John Lewis is a real bonus, I don't know of anyone else that offers that extended guarantee free of charge. 18 March 2014
family printer Excellent printer for the family with more than one PC/Laptop 11 March 2014
Great product Very pleased with product. Easy to use but slightly noisier than my previous printer. Very good value and inks much cheaper than my previous Lexmark printer. I would recommend the printer 11 March 2014
Excellent! Bought this to print from the iPad and iPhone. Very easy to set up, taking just a few minutes. Photo quality is good but we haven't used the scanner or copier yet. Highly recommended for wireless printing... 11 March 2014
Great Purchase This is a great printer, was relatively easy to set up and I am not great with technology. The print is great and the quality of photos brilliant. Great service from John Lewis, delivery was excellent. 04 March 2014
Great printer but doesn't last I bought this printer just under 2 years ago. It is a great printer does everything you want without trouble until it decides it won't print black anymore. Unfortunately only the second time I replaced the ink cartridge it just wouldn't print black at all. Searching on the web leads to the discovery that this is a common problem and HP won't do anything about it. I don't think the printer was heavily used - 2 black ink cartridges in two years - so this is a fault with the printer. To add insult to injury I bought the replacement ink as a pack of all the colours so these are now of no use. Be warned! 19 February 2014
Great value, great prints. This printer is not only the fastest one I have ever had, it is the cheapest. It can be wired, wireless and remote via HP connected. It supports Apple airdrop. And all very easy to set up. I was impressed immediately. 19 February 2014
