Canon PIXMA TS9120 Printer – Great for student use

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is an excellent compact printer for student use. It has good photo print quality and a great cost-printing ratio for black and color ink cartridges. You can also print cd/DVD/Blu-ray labels, which is a useful feature. On the flip side, the black ink cartridge does not produce many pages, and even if the first black text document is printed quickly, the back pages are very slow.

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is right for mixed use. It has a great cost-printing ratio for black and color ink. Its photo printing quality is very good and its piano scanner can help you save old family photos or other more fragile documents. However, it doesn’t produce many black pages before it runs out of ink, which isn’t good for an office printer. It is also slow to print black text documents.Canon PIXMA TS9120 Printer

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is as good as a family printer. It has a very good photo printing quality and has a flat scanner to save old photos or more fragile documents. Black and color ink cartridges also have good cost printing ratios, which is great when you’re trying to stay on budget.

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is disappointing for home office use. Although it has a high cost-printing ratio for black ink, it does not produce many black pages and could be constantly replacing the cartridge. However, if you want to add a splash of color here or there, the color cartridges have a higher yield. However, there is no sheet-powered scanner, an automatic document feeder or a duplex scan, so it can be annoying to use if you have many documents to process.Canon PIXMA TS9120 Printer

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is excellent printer for student use. Its black ink cartridge has a great cost-printing ratio, making it a convenient option for students on a budget. You can also perform color printing and you can add a nice splash of color to the task. Even if you print the first page of a black text document quickly enough, it’s much slower to print pages. Thanks to its excellent connectivity options, you can connect via Wi-Fi through your router and even print from your phone using the companion app.Canon PIXMA TS9120 Printer-

The Canon PIXMA TS9120 is good for black-and-white printing. It has a great cost-printing ratio for black ink cartridges, but it doesn’t produce many pages. However, Canon makes the cartridge size larger if you tend to use more black ink. However, while the first page of a black text document is printed quickly, subsequent pages are much slower.
