Canon Pixma MG8120 Printer Review - PCWorld

 

You pay more for the machine but less for its ink, which is a reasonable trade-off--especially considering the plentiful features that accompany this MFP.

Canon Pixma MG8120 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer

 

The paper handling is better than you might expect in a home printer, with two 150-sheet paper trays and a duplexer. But that's just as useful for a printer that concentrates on photos as for an office printer. Canon's setup instructions even suggest...

High quality photos. Scans and prints directly from 35mm slides and strips of film. Ethernet and WiFi support

No fax modem. No automatic document feeder

The Canon Pixma MG8120 Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer is Canon's latest incarnation of its combination high-end home MFP and standalone home photo lab.

Best all-in-one printer for photos, no fax

 

The Canon Pixma MG8120, like the model it replaces (the Pixma MP990), lacks a fax and is a photo-centric multifunction device rather than one meant for the office. Reviewers like that it can scan and copy 35mm film and slides (with an included...

Can scan and copy 35mm film, slides, excellent photo quality, 3.8-inch LCD screen, straight paper path option

No fax, bulky, slow photo printing

Review: Canon Pixma MG8120 multifunction printer

 

The Canon Pixma MG8120's control panel is a conversation piece and the machine's performance is top-notch.

The Pixma MG8120's most unusual feature is the 3.5-inch, tiltable color LCD with touch-sensitive controls integrated seamlessly into the top lid. The controls light up when they're needed and disappear when they're not. The layout closely resembles...

The entire top panel is dedicated to the control panel. Smack in the center is the adjustable 3.5 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...

Intelligent Touch System ; Quality prints ; 2-way paper feeding

Lengthy processing time ; Ink refill costs

Hands on with Canon's latest All-In-One printer, scanner and fax device.

The MG8120 is an interesting package for the photographer who wants an all-in-one device; it combines a document printer, photo printer and photo scanner into one. And the specifications look great: the printer and scanner are high resolution, and have...

Overall, the Canon Pixma MG8120 is an all-in-one printer that prints, copies and scans at a relatively quick speed with high-quality results. Its price is higher than similar models' prices, especially considering the fact that it lacks a built-in fax...

This Canon Pixma model is a fast and high-quality all-in-one printer

It is a little pricier than similar models and has no built-in fax

Despite its higher price, the Canon Pixma MG8120 is an excellent all-in-one printer overall.

Good for the first month or so

 

Would not buy Canon again. This is the second Canon printer that did this to me.

Easy set up and wifi connection for remote print

Black ink does not work. It uses up the color inks in black print mode. Print head gunks up after six months and needs to be carefully cleaned. This is basically to make you spend $70 every other month for ink while your black cartridge sits there unused

Consumer review by:

Exceeded My Expectations

 

Highly recommend this if your priority is photo printing and scanning.

Outstanding photo print quality. Everything from installation to use has been without problems. Normal document text is adequate and sharp. Using the 35mm file scanning was better than expected also. Some negatives scan nearly as good as the original...

Should have included a fax capability and print cartridges should be larger so they would last longer

Canon PIXMA MG8120

 

Excellent multifunction printer. Impressed with printer features including the firmware capabilities to print. Screen is nice. Power saving feature. Integrated with network seamlessly. Printouts look good. Software and drivers are excellent so far

While the software is excellent it still is bloated. Ink tanks are small - not looking forward to replacing those if this is used a lot
