Canon Pixma MG8120


The shiny, black Canon Pixma MG8120 color inkjet multifunction printer (which prints, copies, and scans), is nothing if not cool-looking--the control panel integrated into the top lid is a must see. But it also produces smooth text output at a good...

Cool-looking control panel built seamlessly into top ; Exceptional text output ; Wireless connectivity

Expensive purchase price ; No automatic document feeder

A generous feature set and great performance make this MFP a good fit for a home or small office.

Canon Pixma MG8120


This photo-friendly all-in-one printer has strong graphics-related features and top-notch print quality. It's a very good fit for homes or home offices.

Excellent print quality; relatively fast photo printing; scans slides, film strips; built-in photo-editing tools

Higher-than-average ink costs; low-capacity output tray; limited envelope handling

If you're buying an AIO mostly to print photos, and less frequently to print other types of documents, the MG8120 could be an excellent choice. This model is a first-rate consumer-grade photo printer, and the AIO features add value. It would be...

Canon Pixma MG8150 Printer Review


I have a long office bench, crammed to the edges with an A3 printer, 35mm film scanner and a flatbed film and document scanner. All of these I've bought over a number of years and well before the era of the single unit, multi purpose devices that can...

The whole experience with the MG8150 was revolutionary: I liked the backlit touch screen operation and found it easy to get around and do the tasks I needed to perform. Oh and it's quiet.

Consumer review by:

Excellent photo prints and very fast scanning.


Good so far.

Very good photo color prints. Saves desk space with no separate scanner

No "turn on from CP" function -- I had this on my 5200pixma and loved it. Seems to use more ink than my previous Canon

Consumer review by:

Prints great, but won't scan.


Since I purchases a MULTIFUNCTION device, it would be nice if it scanned. I've given it 3 stars because of the great print jobs it does, but it something needs to be done about the scanning bug. I've been all over the internet looking for a fix, and...

INCREDIBLE photo printing

Will not scan. It freezes every program I try to use it with including the MP Navigator, the Canon program designed to work with these printers

Consumer review by:

Impressive but for the reasons below - only 3 stars.

My new printer is actually the Pixma MG 6150 which is similar except that it does not have the scanner. It prints quickly in black and white, especially if one uses the "fast" option. Duplex printing works well in "fast" also, although it is slower using

I cannot get two pieces of software (Solution Menu EX and MP Navigator 4.0) supplied with the printer to work although I have installed and uninstalled them several times from the CD and from the Canon website. Advice on downloading from Canon and Microso

Canon Pixma MG8120


It's got a lot of cool features, but of no use to me if I can't print good pictures.

Scans pictures great, love that you can scan negatives and slides

Prints skin tones with orange tinge. As far as pictures are concerned, most of the ones I print have people in them. I read one review that said that if you use the Canon paper it relieved the problem. I tried this and that does fix the orange problem,...

I think I got what I paid for & am very happy with it Documents are clean and crisp and pictures are awesome. It's user friendly, and I'm happy with my decision

Cost $179.00 ease of use, wireless configuration & overall setup. Produces photos like you picked up from the drugstore from your 35mm. It's beautiful Black case is quiet while operating, and the positive response of the touch buttons is exact

the software is simple minded and the manual is incomplete. Lack of a fax option

Overall, I typically love Canon printers, but I can't say that I love this one at all - quite the opposite, actually. For the following reasons: - terrible scanning software for the Mac. Needs to be replaced. - standard document printing quality is...

The design is nice. It's quiet

I was really surprised, I bought this after reading loads of editor reviews. Here are my issues with it:1) text printing on plain paper is not sharp at all. Looks cheap.2) the Mac software is clumsy, difficult to use and does not follow typical Mac...
