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

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

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

Canon Pixma MG8120


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...

Canon Pixma MG8120


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.
