The HP 7525 has given me nothing but frustration. The initial set up was difficult, but I was eventually able to get several laptops connected and printing. The next day no one in my house was able to print and the printer status was offline. The printer reported that it was connected to the network with a valid IP address, but none of the computers could connect to the printer. I made several calls to the HP Support line, but they could not fix the problem. I was using the USB cable to print until I could find time to return the printer to Costco. Suddenly the black ink stopped working. I noticed on the HP Support forum that others have had this problem as well. I called HP and they walked me through cleaning the printer heads. After reinstalling the printer head the printer reported a failure in the printer's ink system. It is unbelievable how bad this product performs and HP should recall this defective product. I am waiting for them to replace the printer under the warranty. <br /><br />Please take my advice and don't waste your time buying this printer.

I have owned the HP 7520 since May 2014. In August my printer said that the printer head was miss or not aligned. I call the tech center and after about 30 minutes they said they would be spending me a new printer head and cartridges.(9/5/2014) The printer work with the new printer head and cartridges. On 9/24/2014 the printer said I needed a new black cartridge. I replace the black cartridge with a new HP 564XL and then got the error message that the printer head was miss or not aligned. Another call to the tech center. The tech was rude with fair English. I asked to speak to a manager, the tech was very slow in making this happen. The manager listen to my issues and how I had trouble shot the printer with all of the on-line recommendations. They are sending out/over nighting a new printer. Had to give them a credit card number for them to put on file till I return the old printer. The manager was very helpful and a good listener.
