Features & Specs - HP Photosmart 7520
Built-in fax For an all-in-one printer, a built-in fax modem that lets you fax what you've scanned without the need for assistance from the computer's own communication hardware.
Memory-card reader Indicates whether the printer has a built-in memory-card reader. If so, this feature lets you print image files from a digital camera's memory card without using a computer. You can also transfer the files to a computer.
Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital
PictBridge This feature allows direct printing (without the use of a computer) from any brand of digital camera to any brand of printer.
LCD viewer Printer has a built-in LCD screen for viewing and editing images from a memory card. The screen is small, usually only 1 to 3.5 inches, and editing capability is very limited.
Individual color tanks Some inkjet printers use a separate tank for each color. Others have tri-color cartridges with three colors in one. Individual tanks let you replace only the color that runs out rather than tossing a tri-color cartridge that may have some ink left.
Individual color tanks
Auto-duplexing Can print automatically on both sides of the paper.
Networking The ability to connect to a home network for printing from a computer either via an Ethernet or a WiFi connection. Ethernet is the common wired network and WiFi is the wireless format commonly found in laptop computers.
Won't come out of sleep mode, and HP has no apparent fix. Plan to return.

I absolutely recommend this printer
Easy To Set Up
Easy To Use
Great Print Quality
I almost didn't buy this printer because of the negative reviews. I decided to try it because of the CR recommendation AND the one very positive recommendation that said I might need a computer savvy person's help and I knew I could get that. I put off setting it up for a couple weeks but when I finally did, it couldn't have gone more smoothly. I kept expecting trouble and it never happened! I've been using it to print from my Ipad, Iphone and my laptop. I have only printed one photo (for the test) and it was absolutely beautiful.

Faulty batch of HP 7520's
Scans To Email
Doesn't Work Properly
After hours on the phone with various HP service personnel...some incompetent and one who was terrific. I learned the HP is aware of a troubled run of HP Photosmart 7520's that are designated with the serial # beginning with TH. I will try to find another one with a different serial #. The all in one printer should have everything I want, if i can find one that works! These TH problem printers are in all retailers that I searched. Must wait for this batch to clear the retail outlets before heading back in to find a more recent one with the manufacturing problems resolved.
