HP 520 Printer Review

There are complicated printers out there for office use and people with high-demanding printing needs. However, for the most part, normal people really only print occasionally and usually for unimportant things like concert tickets or flight itineraries. There are also college students who print a bit more, but only for school work. So why have all the flashy features and multiple functions? What the people need is the most simple of printers, and the HP Deskjet 520 is just that.

Using only one HP 520 ink cartridge, this monochrome unit has no need for additional colors. That one printer ink tank can yield nearly 800 pages, which should last a while, considering the inkjet unit itself can only produce 1,000 pages per month without maintenance. The Deskjet 520 ink can reach a maximum resolution of 300x300 dpi, which is not necessarily impressive, but will suffice.

For photo printing, find a friend with a different printer. The HP 520 ink does not have the quality to produce photos, and if attempted, will result in grainy and sloppy black-and-white pictures. A bonus for college students or low budget homes is the affordable price of replacement Deskjet 520 ink cartridges. Online, remanufactured and compatible tanks of printer ink can be found for the price of a Happy Meal.

This device connects to PCs via USB port, but it lacks an automatic document feederand really any other features that would be considered helpful. It weighs less than 15 pounds and has a small frame that will be able to fit onto any desk space. This inkjet printer has an easy set-up and an HP 520 ink tank that a monkey could install. At the end of the day, people just want simplicity, and this Deskjet 520 printer provides that.
