Canon PIXMA MG8120 All-In-One Printer Review

The PIXMA MG8120 is another sleek printer from the best selling company, Canon. This printer combines outstanding printing performance with a sleek body design making it one of the top selling printers today. This printer features an ultra sensitive touch panel and LCD display which lets you select all the printing controls easily. This also has the Canon Full HD Movie print feature which lets you select a movie frame from a Canon EOS digital camera and print it in HD quality. That’s printing at its finest.

Features & Benefit

Speed and Quality
In terms of speed, the PIXMA MG8120 can print a borderless photo with the size of 4 by 6 inches in about 20 seconds. This is faster than many printers in its class. When it comes to quality, this printer delivers stunning photo prints as well as text documents. That is all thanks to its 9600 x 2400 maximum color dpi.

This printer also has the 6 color ink system which consists of 5 dye based ink tanks and 1 gray ink tank for more accurate photo colors. This system also lets you replace each tank individually as it runs out unlike the original 2 ink cartridge system.

Its superior 4800 x 9600 dpi high-resolution CCD scanner includes a Film Adapter Unit to easily scan 35mm film and slides. Plus, the White LED eliminates warm-up time for document and photo scanning while Auto Document Fix delivers beautiful, easy-to-view scans by advanced image analysis and area-by-area data correction, automatically.

Ease of use
When it comes to ease of use, the PIXMA MG8120 is the bomb. It comes with Built-in Auto Duplex Printing which allows you to automatically print on both sides of the paper and can help reduce your paper usage by up to 50%. Plus the touch panel will never fail you and 3.5 inch LCD display is every handy when it comes to selecting which photos to print. The printer also has a built-in auto photo fix feature which enhances your photos in one touch as well as an auto document fixer which does the same to your documents. There is also the auto scan mode which scans and saves whilst recognizing the type of the photo of document being scanned.

The quick start feature is also very responsive that you can start setting up your photos in just seconds. The HD movie print feature is also very easy to use, thanks to the help of the very responsive scroll wheel.

Paper handling
The PIXMA MG8120 has the 2-way paper feeding option which lets you load paper from the rear or front cassette. You can also automatically print on both sides of the paper without manually turning it over yourself with the help of the built-in auto duplex printing feature. This printer has the duo 150 sheet paper capacity but can only hold 50 sheets on the output tray.

Connectivity
In the connectivity aspect, the PIXMA MG8120 wireless outshines pretty much all of the other printer in its class with the variety of options it offers. You can print and scan any file you want from any Wi-Fi enabled laptop or computer without any hassle. You can also use your apple device or android Smartphone compatible devices with the new Smartphone printing feature. It also has a built-in Ethernet for LAN connection as well as the USB and memory card options.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the average all-in-one, October 27, 2010

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

I waited to try all four features of this printer before reviewing it – document printing, scanning, photo printing, and photocopying. Generally, this printer is a beauty, both looks-wise and operationally. There is a pop up screen with a very bright menu that also displays photos. You are supposed to be able to edit them right there, but I didn’t actually try that feature of this printer. The sleek, shiny, black rounded body has very cool back-lit buttons for all the functions right on the top. You can also control them from the computer. I found myself going back and forth between both, for both everyday functionality and the set up.

I have to say a REALLY great feature about this printer, which I didn’t expect to love as much as I do, is the wireless printing capability. You don’t have to keep this printer anywhere near your computer, just an outlet. If you have a laptop and like to use it in front of the TV, you will absolutely love the freedom it provides.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

We (my wife and I) printed up a photo which we already had in a frame because we wanted to send it to someone and were absolutely astounded by the quality difference which came out of this printer versus the professionally produced ones from the photo counter at CVS we had been using before. The photos from this printer are bright and true to the colors, contrast, and brightness of the actual subjects we shot–our pet rabbit of 11 years in this case who died last November. The Canon prints aren’t just slightly better, they are very obviously better.

But just to make sure we weren’t fooling ourselves, we then printed the photo again on the cheapest grade photo paper, and again on plain (multipurpose) paper. There was no notable quality difference in the images coming out of the Canon on these three types of paper, and they all far outshined the prints from the photo counter.

So then we printed again, using the same make and model of photo paper on both the…Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Prints, Solid Beautiful Printer, Scanner just okay., December 9, 2010
This review is from: Canon PIXMA MG8120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-in-One Printer (4504B002) (Office Product)

I would like to give the Canon Pixma mg8120 and solid 5-star rating for the photo printing alone. I just got this printer yesterday. It was on sale for [...] with free shipping. What a deal!

The set-up was well-documented and easy. The only glitch I ran into was an error message on the LCD display that said the “inner door” was open and I needed to close it. It took me several minutes of messing around to bumble into this thingy inside that I pulled down and then pulled back up–a lever of some sort. That was the “inner door” and that fixed the problem. Someone else asked what the inner door was for. I’m asking the same question. It’s not a big deal and I’m not complaining. I just included this experience in case someone else runs into the same glitch. Don’t panic. It’s fixable.

The machine is solid and quiet and not as heavy as I thought it was going to be. And it is beautiful. Not that I care. But it’s a nice perk. My HP 6988 shakes all over the…Read more

Calculating Cost Per Page:

Cost per page is a calculation of how much it costs to print one single page. Calculating the cost of printing per page before buying a printer, you can ensure whether or not you are able to save money in the long run.

Cost per page = Price of ink cartridge / Page yield

For example, if the price of an ink cartridge is $15 and its yield is 440 pages, then its cost per page will be $15/440=$0.034 (3.4 cents per page).
