Canon Pixma TS5050 review: Another great all-in-one from Canon


It's a smart-looking MFP with good all-round performance , but the PIXMA TS5050 is a touch on the pricey side

Stylish, compact design ; Good all-round performance ; Simple interface and controls

Price ; No automatic duplex function

Canon iSENSYS LBP5050 review


Cleverly designed and capable of superb results, Canon's offering loses out on winning by a small margin.

Canon Pixma TS5050 review

  (Rating Hidden)

If you're hunting for a sub-£100 printer that's brimming with features, then the Canon Pixma TS5050 could appeal to you. This all-in-one inkjet turns out fantastic-quality black text documents, but how well does it handle other print jobs? And is it...

Scanning software is rubbish


I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I've only tried using it to scan things, but it's really annoying. I tried for about 4 hours. Usually I'm good with technology. All I wanted to do was crop and save scanned items, but, each time it did different...

Looks a fair buy at the price, inks reasonable


I got this printing fairly quickly, though it has stuck some unsolicited software onto my taskbar. Copying was ok but nothing in the written instructions so it was trial and error. It says it will scan things and probably will, eventually. It's smaller...

Easy to use


This seems to be a good printer, once set up it is simple to use, BUT reverse side printing is not efficient, as one has to feed the paper back into the machine back-to-front. No good for a run, but OK for one-off.

Consumer review by: Doughboy (



I bought this having sold Canon computer products for years along with other brands. Couldn't recall ever having to send one back (unlike HP and Brother)so went for it. Got a great deal online. Its larger than some colour lasers but that just means...

Robust. Easy to set up. Paper feed above average. Large capacity paper tray. Replacement toner cost acceptable . Doesn't pong like a cheap Brother.

Nags about low toner and forces you to select continue even when there is many pages left. Not unusual in printers, though. Initial toner reduced capacity.
