Canon Pixma MG6120 review


Canon's new Pixma MG6120 multifunction printer satiates our high expectations for consumer-level printers at the $200 price point. This capable machine registers top marks in both speed and output quality and also innovates with features like a 3-inch...

The Pixma MG6120 uses Canon's new Intelligent Touch System and adds wireless connectivity with an auto-document feeder to its generous list of features.

The Pixma's oversensitive virtual buttons make it too easy to activate the wrong function.

We recommend the Canon Pixma MG6120 compact multifunction printer for its simple touch-sensitive control panel, HD Movie Print feature, and capable performance.

Canon Pixma MG6120


The Canon Pixma MG6120 color inkjet multifunction printer offers a lot for the money ($200 as of April 13, 2011), including impressive performance and features, plus the same shiny-black, touch-panel design as the much pricier Canon Pixma MG8120. A few...

Wealth of features ; Touch-sensitive control panel

No automatic document feeder

A touch-sensitive control panel lifts the well-equipped, reasonably fast MG6120 over its midpriced competition.

Canon Pixma MG6120 All-in-One Inkjet Printer


For $159, the Canon Pixma MG6120 prints good-looking photos from your smart phone, memory card, or laptop and looks good doing it.

Attractive design ; Straightforward wireless setup ; Works with Android and iOS phones ; Wide media card support

Smart phone app doesn't support documents ; Slow print speeds over Wi-Fi

It wasn't the printer with the fastest speed or best print quality, but the $159 Canon Pixma MG6120 provides plenty of features--including the ability to print from your Android or iOS device--for a good price. It can handle documents with ease, and...

These consumables are dye inks intended for printing on swellable papers. You should not use these inks on instant-dry porous papers because you will compromise their longevity (quite severely). Prints on swellable paper take a while to dry. Canon...

Review: Canon Pixma MG6120 printer


A touch-sensitive control panel lifts the well-equipped, reasonably fast MG6120 over its midpriced competition.

The touch-sensitive control panel is a lot of fun and easy to use. The only physical button you'll find on the Pixma MG6120 is the power button. All other controls light up as you need them on the glossy-black panel that comprises the top of the...

The entire top panel is dedicated to the control panel. Smack in the center is the adjustable 3.0 inch LCD; lift the screen by pushing the large button above it. Beneath the screen, running the entire length of the top panel is the Intelligent Touch...

Great print quality ; Intelligent Touch System ; Low energy consumption

Lengthy processing times ; Ink refill costs

The Canon Pixma MG6120 comes with a 1-year limited warranty with InstantExchange program

Canon Pixma MG6120


This elegantly designed, solidly constructed all-in-one inkjet produces stunning output for amateur photographers who need a printer they won't be embarrassed to show off in their living rooms.

Exceptional output; well built and designed; highly attractive, functional controls and LCD

High cost of ink; no automatic sheet feeder for multipage originals; slow scanner driver

Canon says this printer is designed for families who want to print high-quality photos and that also have the need for occasional business printing—say, for a family member who is also a home-office worker. Evaluated from that perspective, the Pixma...

The Canon Pixma MG6120 is a compact multifunction printer that has a touch-interface, wireless connectivity and an automatic document feeder. It also has a budget-friendly price and performance that doesn't leave anything to want.<p

"User reviews are DEAD ON!"


Totally agree with other reviews. This printer uses ink like no printer I have ever seen. Like no printer I have ever imagined. I use it only occasionally, yet I have definitely spent more money on ink than I did on the printer. Talk about the razor...

Easy to use, easy to install, scanner works well, looks good

You've heard of a money pit? This is an ink pit.

I think I'm going to shoot a replay of the scene from Office Space where the leads hammer their fax machine to bits in a field. It will be on Youtube. I hate this printer.


guzzles ink like the town drunk guzzles bourbon
