Product Overview

HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One in More Detail

The HP Photosmart 5520 enables the home user to print professional lab quality photographs, documents and internet content from virtually anywhere.

Stay connected

HP Auto Wireless connect provides simple set-up to connect your printer to your wireless network in just a few easy steps. Print from your mobile devices, smart phones and tablets via HP wireless direct printing or the built in Apple Airprint connectivity.

The accompanied software and Google Cloud Print compatibility allows you to even print on the go, without being in touching distance of the printer.

Direct Printing without the need for a PC

The in-built intuitive touch screen provides a variety of simple to use applications allowing you to control your documents without having to boot up your PC. Scan to email or to a network folder.

Print Directly from your camera's memory card using the touchscreen to select your desired photographs before printing.

Print Games, Calendars and more from using HP Quickforms directly from the printer.

Lab Quality at Affordable Prices

Individual inks mean that you can change individual colours when you need instead of having to throw away and replace half-empty cartridges.

Print your documents professionally using the automatic duplex function (double sided printing) and save up to 50% on your paper consumption.

Optional XL ink cartridges contain twice as much ink to give you up to 2.5 times more colour prints out of your consumables.

  • Hi there, I'm looking to buy one of these printers, I would like to ask you this question, would I be able to print on to paper that is 160gsm in thickness? I look forward to hearing your reply. Many thanks for your help. Mr G Woolnough

    The Photosmart 5520 would print up to 180gsm, however this model is no longer in production and therefore unavailable to purchase from us. Our printer team will gladly recommend alternatives on 0800 840 1992

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Full list of AirPrint compatible printers

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the above information is correct at the time of publication, Printerland will not be held responsible for the content of any third-party software suggested on this site and usage of any such software is at the users own risk. Printerland is unable to provide support for Airprint compatible printer software and any such advice should be readily available from the relevant manufacturer or developer.
