Canon Pixma TR8550 Review

Most of Canon’s Pixma inkjet printers are tailored towards publishing fantastic pictures, just like the outstanding six-ink Canon PIXMA TS8050, however, the Canon Pixma TR8550 is intended directly at the office. Because of this, this has just 5 (instead of 6) ink cartridges and includes a file feeder and duplex publishing. The addition from a fax center places this device in the affordable classification from small four-in-one MFPs. At about £199 (regarding US$265, AU$355) it‘s rather keenly valued.

And this design truly is small. Canon reckons it‘s 38% smaller sized compared to the MX920 these changes while keeping 2 different paper trays front and back and a 20-sheet ADF on leading. What Canon provides that the standard MFD doesn’t, is a big 4. 3-inch touchscreen user interface, Bluetooth connection along with Wi-Fi and a 5th ink cartridge to improve the publish high quality.

Printers for the office have been obtaining gradually smaller sized and the Canon Pixma TR8550 is an archetype. With all the flaps and prolonging trays folded up away, it’s a bit larger compared to Canon’s household driven picture printers but this integrates a 100-sheet primary paper tray, a 20-sheet back paper tray for picture paper and envelopes and a 20-sheet automated file feeder (ADF) on leading.


We discovered the Canon Pixma TR8550 to be instead slow down when this concerned publishing mono duplex web pages from the message, however, the web pages deserved waiting on. The extra cartridge provides black pigment ink along with the 4 dyes, which provides published words abundant darkness while preserving a fragile touch. Really little factor dimensions are equally as plainly specified as big letters.

The additional ink likewise befits color files, with colors showing up vibrant and well included and blacks uniformly filled out throughout. Photos on picture paper are especially well shaded, precise and vibrant. Well, what did you expect from a video camera producer? Most likely it‘s because the publish resolution is just fifty percent the DPI from the Canon PIXMA TS8050 that pictures appearance significantly softer. This likewise does not have the extra grey cartridge from that model’s six-ink system.

By including fax and ADF and maintaining the expense reduced, some sacrifices to publishing high quality have been made. In spite of this, the Canon Pixma TR8550 ends up mono, color and picture prints that will thrill.
