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...

Canon Pixma TS8050 im Test

 

Der Multifunktionsdrucker Canon Pixma TS8050 spricht Fotofans genauso an wie Anhänger des Mobildrucks. Warum das so ist, lesen Sie im Test.

+ guter Mobildruck - auch über NFC, Wi-Fi Direct ; + CD-Druck-Funktion ; + sehr guter Fotodruck ; + gutes Touch-Display

- kein echter Ausschalter ; - langsam im Duplex-Druck ; - klappbares Bedienpanel etwas instabil

Great Printer

 

This is a very good printer as others have commented the bottom paper load tray is rather flimsy but does the job. Set up is fairly easy and you do not need to use the enclosed CD to get up and running as everything is on line. The photo print quality...

Smart looking printer

 

This is a neat sized printer for a desk, looks good and easy to use once you get the hang of all the features. Set up was a little difficult and confusing with limited instructions, the main body of the printer is a solid build but a few of the extra...

Consumer review by: Johnoshil (johnlewis.com)

It’s a bit thick and needs helping.

 

John Lewis order and delivery was great as usual. The printer works well and so far is pretty good on ink. I find it needs telling about each paper type when you load them and the tray selection choose could be made clearer. I have printed letters on...

Impressive Printer

 

I am impressed with this all-in-one printer. It produces excellent quality pictures and documents, the wi-fi is faultless and it is packed with features. The only downside is the cost of cartridges: a full set of Canon replacements is ~70% of the cost...
