Printer PIXMA TS8220 review: Perfect All-In-One home printer
The Canon PIXMA TS8220 is a good quality family printer. It is able to print large photos full of bright colors and has a fairly decent color accuracy. Although it does not produce many black pages, its color page performance is much better and its overall cost for printing is excellent. It has extensive connectivity options and is compatible with Canon’s outstanding mobile app.
The Canon PIXMA TS8220 is a great all-in-one inkjet printer for everyday home use. Although he has already been replaced by his successor, the Canon PIXMA TS8320, it still eclipses him in some respects. It has an elegant design and its compact size is suitable for small spaces. Print great photos, it has decent color accuracy and its connectivity options are outstanding. The black ink cartridge runs out quite quickly, which means you need to replace it regularly; However, color cartridges can last much longer. Its printing speed is a little middling, as it can print photos very quickly, but it is slow to print black and color documents. Unfortunately, the scanner is quite simple as it lacks an automatic document feeder, so it is not the best choice for those who need to scan long documents.
The Canon PIXMA TS8220 is an excellent printer for students. It is relatively inexpensive to print in black and color, making it ideal for students on a budget. It has excellent connectivity options, including support for SD cards, and supports printing from mobile devices. Unfortunately, it takes a while to print the first page of a document, and it doesn’t get much faster after that.
The Canon PIXMA TS8220 is a sub-pipe printer for printing black-and-white documents. Although it is quite convenient to print in black, you still need to change the black ink cartridge often due to its poor performance. It is also quite slow in printing black documents.
The Canon PIXMA TS8220 cartridge system is fine. The black page rendering is quite negative, so you’ll probably need to replace the PGI-280 black ink cartridge often, as it’s the default black ink cartridge for printing black documents. On the other hand, the performance of the color page is significantly better. If you print a lot, high-performance cartridges are available.
This printer accepts third-party cartridges, but its use can cancel the manufacturer’s warranty. In addition, you need to pay special attention, as this printer uses a combination of inks based on dyes and pigments.Photo:Canon
The total printing cost of the Canon PIXMA TS8220 is excellent. The black cartridge needs frequent replacements due to its low yield. However, black ink cartridges are relatively inexpensive, which helps to prevent the cost of black-only printing from rising too quickly. For color printing, cartridges are more expensive, but they don’t have to be replaced with the same frequency, so color printing ends up being just a little more expensive than long-term black printing.
