Q & As

HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer 3.9 5 52 52
Dubious quality This was my second HP printer, the first having given up after two year of light use. I only bought it because my inks were still fresh and far too expensive to throw away. What a disappointment. The instruction screen was so fuzzy it couldn't be read. I returned it to JLP, Southampton and, as usual, after testing the machine themselves, a refund was given. I will definitely disregard HP in the future. Not recommended. 16 September 2014
Very pleased with my printer The printer ticks all my boxes. It was also a very good price, and cheaper from John Lewis than most other shops. 09 September 2014
Wireless Problems Had problems with this printer staying connected to the router after it went in to sleep-mode. Computer and iPad could not pick it up, even though printer was saying connected. Had to turn it off and on again every time I wanted to use it. Had two HP agents look into it, to eventually find there is a hardware fault and number of these had been recalled, so now off to get a replacement. 06 September 2014
Very useful, and excellent product I had an HP printer previously, and was very pleased. I thought I would purchase another HP printer and went for the HP Photosmart 6520. I am amazed at the ease of use and the speed. 02 September 2014
Photosmart 6520 e-all in one printer Very very pleased with all aspects of this printer. Excellent value for money. Colour reproduction excellent. would recommend. 26 August 2014
Custom sizes not possible If it's relevant to your printing requirements, there is no way to get this printer to print custom sizes, e.g DVD or file labels, square envelopes, paper inserts for greetings cards and invites. Looking at HP forums, this is an insurmountable problem. Aside from that, it's ok. Not as solidly built as older models and expensive on ink. Colour resolution a bit bright. JohnLewis might want to make clear under paper sizes that custom is not an option. 19 August 2014
Speedy Much quicker than my previous Epsons, but it took a bit of getting used to. Ideal for printing on both sides remotely. I don't know why I persevered with Epsons for so long. 05 August 2014
Magic! It was very easy to set this printer up. We were prompted every step of the way. Printing is good, if a little slow, but maybe we need to reduce the quality. It automatically decides whether to print on photo or A4 paper. Printing directly from iPhone and iPad across our wi-fi seems like magic. The printer even has an email address, so that you can email it things to print. 29 July 2014
