Canon Pixma TS8050 review

 

A cleverly designed MFP in more ways than one

Space saving foldaway design ; Wi-Fi and NFC pairing ; Impressive connectivity ; Six ink system improves colour fidelity

‘Setup’ cartridges supplied are standard size, not XL ; Refills are expensive ; Slow print speeds ; Text looks a little heavy when not on ‘Fine’ setting

When printing full colour documents and photos, Canon’s six ink system has a real advantage, producing vibrant and professional results. The clever foldaway design and large touchscreen are also highlights, but the Pixma’s running costs aren’t cheap.

Canon Pixma TS8050 review

 

It's not the cheapest printer around, but the versatility and high-quality photo output of this inkjet printer will appeal to photo enthusiasts. Here's our Canon Pixma TS8050 review

The initial cost of the TS8050 is quite high, but its impressive photo printing will justify that price for people who are serious about photography. We’d avoid the standard size ink cartridges, as they’re not great value for money, but if you buy the...

Great upgrade from an old all in one printer

 

Speed, looks and interface is great, wifi is very easy to setup and had no issues so far. Only imprivement areas are: 1) the scanner noise is very disturbing and it sounds as it is broken 2) the paper tray in the front sticks out if you put a4 in it....

Canon PIXMA TS8050

 

Compact, fairly fast, multi cartridge, print quality is excellent and the canon utilities are very good. Easy config.

Disappointed that the paper tray protruded out of the front of the printer once assembled.

Replacement for 14yr old printer!

 

This is a very smart, compact printer and I like having the separate ink cartridges, hopefully if will be more economical. I haven't found it as easy to use as my old HP printer. It's a little tedious having to change the paper tray setting from photo...

Just what I wanted

 

Great so far as I have not had it long, chose this printer to replace my pixma MG5450 as it had the dreaded B200 error.The photo printing is excellent also purchased this model for CD-DVD disc printing.
