Canon PIXMA iP8720 Review
It's a very versatile printer as it can handle various media including borderless prints of a size up to 13 x 19 inches, 4 x 6-inch full-color photographs –which you can get in just 36 seconds.
Moreover, you can print legal size (8.5 x 14 inches) and letter A size (8.5 x 11 inches).
You can also print various media types including envelope, glossy paper, photo paper, and plain paper.
However, it doesn’t have automatic duplexing, cannot print if color is empty, and lacks an LCD viewer for you to adjust your print settings or preview your prints.
On top of that, the Canon PIXMA iX6820 has an incredible color reproduction as it uses a clever 5-color ink configuration technology that includes cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and pigment black.
This gives every color a higher degree of vividness and makes the blacks look very authentic.
As for the connectivity options, there are many options on the Canon PIXMA iX6820 that allow you to easily print from any platform or app.
You can either use a wired connection through Ethernet cable or a wireless connection through WiFi.
It also has both a 4 pin USB Type-B connector and an RJ-45 connector.
On top of that, you can connect your smartphone directly through the Printing Solutions smartphone app as well as Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print.
However, its paper capacity is only 150 sheets of paper at a time, which is quite disappointing.
Furthermore, the Canon PIXMA iX6820 comes with automatic power on and off switch. This turns the printer off whenever you're not using it to save up and be as power-efficient as possible.
The Canon PIXMA iX6820 comes with a 1-year limited warranty and technical support through phone consulting.
Finally, the dimensions of the Canon PIXMA iX6820 are 23 x 12.3 x 6.3 inches and it weighs 17.86 pounds. So it’s pretty compact and lightweight compared to most options on the market.
The box includes:
- A power cable
- A full set of cartridges
- Installation manual
- Driver CD-ROM
- Inkjet photo paper sample pack
- Safety documentation.
