Canon Pixma TS3150
The Canon Pixma TS3150 This multifunction inkjet printer/scanner/copier does not have the innovative attributes you would certainly locate on a more expensive version– there’s no duplex choice to automatically publish on both sides of the paper, for instance– however it does support wireless networking, so you can connect it to your Wi-fi as well as share it between all your house PCs as well as smart phones.
The rear of the printer houses an easy paper tray that holds 60 sheets, while at the front there’s a likewise practical result tray, which managed to keep everything impressively clean throughout printing. When not in use, the back tray turns closed to function as a cover. There are numerous buttons on the top of its covering, including 2 Start buttons (one for colour duplicates, the various other for black and white) and also Cancel, in addition to a couple to aid run a little, mono LCD show, which shows basic standing messages.
Canon’s configuration program makes short work of the setup procedure and can normally spot the printer wirelessly without any configuration on the user’s component. If that does not work, there’s a momentary USB connection to set up cordless gain access to.
The Canon Pixma TS3150 makes use of just two ink cartridges: one for black and also the other including cyan, magenta and also yellow. It’s even more inefficient than having separate cartridges for each and every colour, because you have to replace the whole cartridge when you lack just one colour, that makes print costs more than standard. Using the XL cartridge sizes, we determined the colour component of an A4 web page at a reasonable 5.4 p, however the black part was really costly at 4.3 p.
We do not expect fantastic across-the-board performance from such a cheap tool, and also the Canon Pixma TS3150 weak point is its print rate, which peaked at 7.4 ppm (pages per min) for black text, and also dipped as low as 1.6 ppm for colour– the slowest we’ve videotaped in some time. Canon Pixma TS5050 You need to wait an agonising 2.5 minutes to publish a colour photo at highest as well as you won’t have the ability to do it on A4: the chauffeur allows you produce and send out the job, but the printer rejects to publish on A4 photo paper.
At 26 secs for black as well as 57 secs for colour, copies weren’t quickly either, however scan speeds compared well to mid-range tools– over USB, it took us just 37 seconds to capture a 6 x 4in photo at 1,200 dpi (dots per inch).
