Dark photos, ink rubs off

Comment:
Our retail store displays many 8x10 photos of clients; best printer photo quality was Kodak, no longer available. HP7520 prints photos darker so Photoshop needed to lighten, ink rubs off coloured signs (on photo paper) even a day after printing.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

It has been a struggle from the first day to keep this machine connected to my wifi. I spend way too much time rebooting to get it to connect. The problem has only gotten worse with time. At this point it will only worked wired, not wirelessly at all.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Home use for printing and work, color, black and white, copying, scanning. Reasonable printer for cost. Moving from UK to US the printer would not use cartridges from the US. Had it for a couple years then after a power outage gave a missing cartridge error that would not clear. Since cost of new printer head was about half the cost of a new printer, and wasn't sure it would fix the issue, decided to replace it. Disappointed.
