Top Drawer Photographs with Canon’s Pixma TS9020 Wireless Inkjet All-In-One Photo Printer

Top Drawer Photographs with Canon’s Pixma TS9020 Wireless Inkjet All-In-One Photo Printer

For years now, we’ve been reviewing slightly different iterations of the same “MG”-family Pixmas from Canon. (The MG family is, or was, Canon’s consumer line of photo-centric Pixma printers.) Like most printer makers, each year Canon simply added a feature or two, up-ticked the number in the printer’s name (say, from Pixma MG7620 to Pixma MG7720), and then offered it as a new, or more... [Read more]

Reasonably Fast and Accurate Scans with Epson’s DS-1630 Flatbed Color Document Scanner

Reasonably Fast and Accurate Scans with Epson’s DS-1630 Flatbed Color Document Scanner

The Epson DS-1630 Flatbed Color Document Scanner ($299.99) is a low-volume document scanner designed for small and home-based offices. It combines the versatility of a flatbed and a sheet-feed scanner with an automatic document feeder (ADF), and supports automatic duplex scanning. But unlike many competing models, including the same-priced HP ScanJet Pro 2500 f1 Flatbed Scanner and the more expensive... [Read more]

Low CPP and Excellent Prints with Canon’s Pixma G4200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One

Low CPP and Excellent Prints with Canon’s Pixma G4200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One

Years from now, we’ll look back at the current era in inkjet printers, and call these times The “Big Ink” Years. Supplying bulk ink with your printer, or making it available in bulk, is definitely the in thing. It took a while, but inkjet giant Canon finally responded to rival Epson’s “supertanker” EcoTank inkjet printers, and to a lesser degree, to Brother’s INKvestment... [Read more]

Low Cost Per Page with Canon’s Pixma G3200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One Printer

Low Cost Per Page with Canon’s Pixma G3200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One Printer

The Canon Pixma G3200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One Printer ($299.99) is a low-volume all-in-one printer (AIO) intended for small or home-based offices. Like the recently reviewed Pixma G1200, a standalone model, the G3200 is one of Canon’s MegaTank G-Series machines designed to compete directly with Epson’s EcoTank and Brother’s INKvestment printers, such as the Expression ET-2550... [Read more]

Canon’s Inexpensive Five-Ink Pixma TS5020 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer

Canon’s Inexpensive Five-Ink Pixma TS5020 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One Printer

The least-expensive all-in-one printer (AIO) in Canon’s new Pixma TS series, the Pixma TS5020 Wireless All-in-One Printer ($99.99), is a low-cost, low-volume model designed for home use. A primary difference between it and the pricier and more feature-rich TS9020 and TS8020 (the latter an Editors’ Choice) is that the TS5020 uses five inks rather than six. Unlike another Editors’ Choice,... [Read more]

Canon’s Business-Centric Maxify MB2120 Wireless Home Office Inkjet Printer

The Canon Maxify MB2120 Wireless Home Office Inkjet Printer ($179.99) is a one-drawer version of the Editors’ Choice Maxify MB2720 Wireless Home Office Inkjet Printer we reviewed a few months ago. In both performance and output quality, the MB2120, the MB2720, and the Canon Maxify MB5420 reviewed here recently, behaved much the same—fast enough for use as an entry-level home or home-based... [Read more]

Epson’s WorkForce ET-16500 EcoTank Wide-Format All-in-One Supertank Printer

Epson’s WorkForce ET-16500 EcoTank Wide-Format All-in-One Supertank Printer

The Epson WorkForce Pro ET-16500 EcoTank Wide-Format All-in-One Supertank Printer ($999.99) is the first wide-format inkjet printer we’ve looked at in Epson’s EcoTank line, which uses ink tanks or bottles in place of cartridges. As such, it can print pages up to supertabloid size (13 by 19), as well as scan, copy, and fax tabloid (11-by-17) pages. Overall, the ET-16500 is a fine printer,... [Read more]

Epson’s Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer’s Cheap Ink

Epson’s Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer’s Cheap Ink

Epson’s EcoTank printers promise very low running costs over time, at the expense of a higher purchase price, and the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer ($399.99) is no exception. In terms of price, capacity, and features, it fits between two of the previous EcoTank inkjets we’ve reviewed, the Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer and the Epson WorkForce... [Read more]

Excellent Professional Photos and Banners with Epson’s SureColor P800

Excellent Professional Photos and Banners with Epson’s SureColor P800

Today’s better near-dedicated photo printers, including the Epson SureColor P800, produce remarkably good, professional-quality prints. The P800 ($1,295) is similar in price, capacity, and print quality to the Canon imagePrograf PRO-1000, which recently became our Editors’ Choice C-size (17-inch paper width) professional photo printer. The P800 offers the option to print on paper rolls... [Read more]

Brother’s MFC-J6535DW MFP Inkjet with INKvestment Delivers Great Text and Low CPP

Brother’s MFC-J6535DW MFP Inkjet with INKvestment Delivers Great Text and Low CPP

Brother’s contribution to the inkjet ink-pricing wars that we’ve been reporting on for the past few years is its line of INKvestment all-in-one printers. The INKvestment idea is simple but effective. Unlike Epson’s EcoTank models, which come with large ink reservoirs or saddlebags coupled to the sides of the chassis, or HP’s Instant Ink subscription service (or Canon’s soon-to-be-reviewed... [Read more]
