Comment:
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.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
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.
