Q & As


HP Photosmart 6520 e-All-in-One Printer 4 5 48 48
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
Easy to Set Up and Use Happy with this purchase. Really easy to set up and get going. Also uses cartridges that are readily available (364). Only downside so far is that driver is not compatible with Macs using OS X (10.5.8) or older, which is only about 5 years old, so I have to send documents to my ipad for printing. 29 July 2014
Printer was great whilst it lasted ! I bought this printer 3-4 weeks ago to replace quite an old one. Set up was easy and it was great just being able to "press print" from anywhere in the house and not have to worry about being attached to the printer. Quality of the printing was good as well. I would have given this product 4 or 5 stars but unfortunately it is now no longer working - according to the HP forum it suffered an "energy surge" that resulted in the display just showing a blank white screen and nothing we did would get it up and running again. Top marks to John Lewis though, I went into see them and they have offered to replace it straightaway - no quibbling or sending it off for repair or testing, so hopefully the next one will be fine and last a bit longer. 29 July 2014
Easy to use Looks good and is very easy to use, with quality copies and prints. Inks are a little expensive though, but overall worth the money. 29 July 2014
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
