HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer

HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer Price in the Philippines and Other Info: For these few years, my exposure to HP devices drove me to not being interested about it no matter the features and offers (sorry, guys, if I sounded too mean). I have been frustrated actually to how HP devices have failed to do what I think it should do ‘for me.’ However, I believe things have changed, more when I was introduced to a new AIO (all-in-one) printer that does the jobs in the most intelligent way. Thanks to HP’s new Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One Printer. A next to its kin, the 6520, I knew this 7520 ensures that people like me won’t get frustrated at all.

The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer has a very big starship body that, when compared to other small-in-one and multi-function printers, looked more classical than modern. Aside from a seemingly hollow space in the middle of the body (making it look like a big Fuji copier), the ADF (automatic document feeder) is protruded upwards and has a door on it. Nevertheless, what makes this 7520 of HP saved from being a vintage is its 4.3-inch full-color touch-capable display and the printer’s absolutely getting rid of wires… even the Ethernet port.

With the Ethernet port gone, for sure a lot of you would think that wired printing is still possible for non-Wi-Fi users via a USB cable. My friends, the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer does not allow that. With this said, if you don’t have any wireless Internet connection available, you can only but rely on USB flash drives or SD cards, on which the slots are available right below the front face of the printer. If you were a techie, you’d love to get a good app from HP to get access to this printer.

However, taking advantage of the wireless technology to where this AIO of HP is directly and solely dedicated to and relied on, the 7520 does not fall short in terms to a selection of options. Some of the ways to connect to this printer wirelessly are as follows: HP Wireless Direct (this is HP’s own version of Wireless Direct wherein users can print wirelessly without the need for an established network, as long as the held device is capable of detecting hotspots), cloud printing (at least you have to register the printer on the cloud service), AirPrint (wireless printing through Apple’s own cloud printing), HP ePrint (for allowing Android and other devices to ‘talk’ to this printer).

Moreover, adding to the specifics, the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer also allows e-mail printing (this is included in the ePrint app) wherein a dedicated e-mail address can bet tagged to this printer, and any ‘allowed’ sender e-mails can send files directly for it to print. And, before I forget, aside from lacking an Ethernet port, you’ll also find hassle with picking up the cards from your digital cameras for printing since this printer does not support PictBridge.

Going back to the hardware, the main paper tray we have here supports only 125 sheets of regular paper that should not be bigger than a legal-sized paper. While the tray does not support specialty and continuous paper, we have some other flexible options readily designed for envelope printing, and more with photo printing since there’s a dedicated but slightly over-sealed photo paper tray capable of holding 20 5×7 sheets. For the ADF, we have a 25-sheet tray that does not support two-sided scanning (you have to do it manually). The scanbed also accommodates up to 8.5×11.7-inch papers, but when you feed a legal-sized paper on the ADF, it still does the job. Adding to the scanning feature is the resolution of up to 1200dpi, scan to fax, scan to file, or scan to e-mail.

Lastly, the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One has a decent printing speed that is remarkably higher than the average AIOs but is not still the fasted around. Based on ISO testing, the 7520 has the speed of 14ppm for black (up to 34ppm for draft printing), and 10ppm for colored (33ppm for draft). For photos, the 7520 did a 4×6 picture as fast as 16 seconds. To ease more the usual worry about pricing, luckily, though there’s an additional Picture Black cartridge, buying cartridges separately will only cost amazingly at 3.3 cents per CMY cartridge.

Priced relatively low at around $150, the HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer should be a great solution for those who enjoy the convenience of having Wi-Fi and other modern devices. The 7520 limits itself to not having an option to print via cable, but the touch display and all wireless printing features surmounts the downsides in the most maximum manner.
