Conclusion
The HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One has plenty of cards to play. Very well equipped on the hardware side and with plenty of features, it goes further than most inkjets and is disconcertingly simple to use. Don’t expect optimum print quality, however, as here it's just below average.
The Epson Expression Premium XP-700 is an elegant, compact machine with a touchscreen that's simple, responsive and user-friendly. However, while the photo print quality is excellent, we can't really see any improvements in the document prints since the Stylus Photo PX730WD, new ink notwithstanding. And the input/output trays can annoying to deal with.
