HP PhotoSmart 5520 review with All-In-One printer specs

By Peter Chubb - Nov 9, 2014

The HP PhotoSmart 5520 All-In-One printer is not all that new, neither the best, but it is an affordable model that delivers decent images at a price that fits within people with a low budget. I have had plenty of printers in my time, but as this model is the one I am currently using, it has been better than expected, especially as it was only purchased to get me by because the previous Kodak model finally gave up on me.

One of the reasons why this HP PhotoSmart All-In-One Ink Jet Printer produces great image quality is thanks to its duplex print engine, although you really need to make certain you have the correct paper for the job, otherwise you will not be happy with the results. We know this can often work out expensive, but it is always better to have the correct paper type, as well as a good brand as well, along with original HP ink of course.

What I like about this printer is its touchscreen with touch buttons, AirPrint, which works with my iPhone 6, and reasonable running costs. However, what I do not like is its strange paper stop design, memory card slot is hard to get to, and the paper tray only allows for a maximum of 80 sheets.

Below you will see two video reviews for your viewing pleasure, and so we hope they provide enough insight into whether this is the model for you, as it would certainly make a great gift thanks to its low price.
