Canon Pixma TS8050 review

 

A cleverly designed MFP in more ways than one

Space saving foldaway design ; Wi-Fi and NFC pairing ; Impressive connectivity ; Six ink system improves colour fidelity

‘Setup’ cartridges supplied are standard size, not XL ; Refills are expensive ; Slow print speeds ; Text looks a little heavy when not on ‘Fine’ setting

When printing full colour documents and photos, Canon’s six ink system has a real advantage, producing vibrant and professional results. The clever foldaway design and large touchscreen are also highlights, but the Pixma’s running costs aren’t cheap.

I like the small footprint of this printer as space on my desk is limited

I think the tilting LCD cover could have been better designed in respect of Auto Closing when turning the printer off.

Canon PIXMA TS8050

 

Talks well to all devices; good quality so far (not tested extensively); compact

User guide overcomplicates the set-up process. Ink price is eye-watering. Design with paper tray protruding is clumsy and could lead to breakage. But a previous PIXMA model didn't even havea permanent paper tray (needed loeading each time it was used)...

Great quality output, but slow, and some annoyances

 

PLUS I bought this to print directly on to CD's which it does really well, it also does a really fine job of glossy photos, and excellent quality on to paper. Stunning colour, clear and sharp monochrome, small footprint, and perfect for my needs since...

Better than expected

 

I have always had HP printers so this Canon had some surprising features that HP did't have like ink level report every time I print and powering off automatically when not in use.
