The HP Photosmart 5522 e-All-in-One is a color inkjet multifunction printer with printing, scanning, and copying functions. It has fairly fast ISO-rated speeds of 8 pages per minute in color and 11 pages per minute in black. It is designed mainly for home users, as its monthly duty cycle is only 300 to 400 pages. Its HP 5522 printer ink is fairly inexpensive, keeping running costs low.
The device is quite compact, despite its three major functions, measuring 5.6x17.5x21.5 inches with a weight of 11.12 pounds. It lacks an automatic document feeder, but does include a flatbed scanning surface for scans and copies. The functions are controlled from the intuitive touch screen control panel, and users can even download apps directly for enhanced features, such as coupon printing and web photo browsing. Wi-Fi support is built right in, and set up is quick and simple.
In a review of the 5522, PCWorld gave it a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. They praised the inclusion of duplexing, and the machine's good quality output. They also liked the inclusion of Apple's AirPrint and HP's ePrint technologies, which enable easier printing from mobile devices or even over the web. They disliked the lack of an ADF, but found the availability of high-yield Photosmart 5522 ink cartridges to be a good way to keep costs down.
The standard HP 5522 ink cartridges have yields of 300 pages for each of the colors, and 250 for black. The high-yield Photosmart 5522 printer ink can reach up to 750 pages for colors and 550 pages for black, which is quite impressive for a compact inkjet model. Choosing compatible HP 5522 ink can help bring the costs down even further.
Overall, the HP 5522 offers the multifunction features, photo printing, and ease-of-use that most home users will need. If buyers don't mind its limited capacities, it is a good buy for its low price.
