The Canon Pixma TS9520 Wireless Inkjet All-In-One Printer ($249.99) is a wide-format consumer-grade photo printer for both household and home-based-office use. It's first in Canon's TS show to have an automatic document feeder and also the ability to publish tabloid-size webpages, and one of the very first Pixmas using"smart" hands-free printing. Like Canon's other five-ink all-in-one printers, the TS9520 generates excellent-looking text, photographs, and graphics, but, like most consumer-grade photo printers in general, its high running costs relegate it into low-volume use. Despite, that, its abundant feature set and great performance elevate it to our Editors' Choice wide-format printer.
Unlike its smaller, letter-size (8.5 by 11 inches) TS series siblings that arrive with a couple of different colored staircase, the TS9520 comes just in black, and it's 20-sheet ADF and encourage for wide-format pages also make it somewhat wider and taller than previous TS-series models. In 7.6 by 18.5 by 14.5 inches (HWD), and weighing 21.3 pounds, the more TS9520's footprint takes a bit more space than the Canon Pixma TS9120, which it additionally succeeds by just over 6 lbs. Brother's business-office-oriented MFC-J6935DW is a couple of inches larger nevertheless, and it weighs a whopping 31.5 lbs over the TS9520.
The TS9520's paper input capacity is 200 sheets split between the 100-sheet major cassette that slides in under the 100-sheet output , and also a 100-sheet tray which pulls up and out from the back of the chassis. You are able to load both trays using the exact press, or you can deploy two unique media types from different sources. Even the TS9520 is capable of printing borderless up pages to letter-size as well as while it anticipates you'll load photo paper from the rear tray, it does a reasonably good job of sensing the correct media size.
The Pixma TS9120 and TS6120 also hold up to 200 sheets from two origins, while Epson's ET-7750 comes with two 100-sheet trays plus also a 20-sheet snapshot-size paper tray within the front paper jar. HP's Tango X, on the other hand, holds a solid 50 sheets up to legal size (8.5 by 14 inches).
Canon no longer recommends duty cycle and/or recommended volume ratings because of its consumer-grade printers.
Setup and walkup jobs, such as making copies, scanning into a network drive or even the cloud, and so on, are managed from the TS9520's 4.3-inch touch screen control panel, shown below...
If you are a avid scrapbooker, have a look at our review of this Pixma TS9521C, which is a crafter-friendly replica of TS9520. It gives support for 12-by-12-inch scrapbooking paper dimensions, a large selection of built-in printable patterns and templates, and some other notable crafting features.
Myriad Connections and Mobile Maneuvers
Standard connectivity ports on the Canon Pixma TS9520 include Ethernet, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth LE (Low Energy), PictBridge more wired or wireless LAN, and also an SD memory card slot. As you don't view Wi-Fi Direct or Near-Field Communication (NFC) peer-to-peer media choices within this list, Bluetooth LE is a peer-to-peer protocol which lets any Bluetooth LE-capable device within a 15-to-20-foot radius link into the printer. And nowadays, virtually any mobile device that supports Wi-Fi Direct additionally supports standard Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n.
You may even print from mobile devices with the Canon Print program, which permits you to publish from and scan to your smartphone, in addition to various cloud sites, including Canon Image Gateway, Dropbox, Google Drive, along with Microsoft OneDrive.
The TS9520 can also be compatible with all the Easy-PhotoPrint Editor app. As its name suggests, it allows you to edit your photos before printing them. It also provides access to a broader range of websites, as well as tools for cleaning up red-eye and other autocorrections, copying and applying filters, plus much more.
Still another intriguing cellphone part is Message In Printing, a feature Canon brought over from its Selphy photo printer. Comparable to Lifeprint's Hyperphoto and also the HP Sprocket 2nd Edition's augmented reality attributes, Canon's Message From Printing program permits you to embed hidden messagesincluding podcasts, text, music, movie connections, and other creative augmentations--directly within the picture.
Friends, family members, or colleagues might (after downloading and installing the program ) hold their mobile devices' cameras over the photograph to display your personalized messages or start the links contained within the images. As I said about this feature in my recent review of the TS9521C, this technology isn't new to Canon's most recent apparatus, however its support for such a broad assortment of media types--from text messages to video links--is perhaps handier than another augmented reality implementations I've seen.
Besides the cellular software, printer driver, and scanning usefulness, here is an overview of the applications Canon includes using the TS9520:
Easy-PhotoPrint Editor: This software can be used for printing and editing the images stored on your own computer or in the cloud. Like its mobile equivalent, it also allows you to edit and publish many documents, like calendars, collages, greeting cards, and even more, from included templates.
You can also use it to upload screenshots along with other information to Canon Service to get help resolving a problem.
It's installed if the Canon system is set up and monitors the network for changes which may impact performance.
Fast Menu: This is an assortment of quick-access icons, or shortcuts, into the several programs and utilities installed along with your printer.
PosterArtist Lite: it is possible to add this selection of poster and signage templates (at the company, Education, Documents, Photo Collages, Restaurants, Retail, Signs & Notices, and distinctive events groups ) to your pictures, images, and text to create professional-looking indicators and other wall adornments.
Like the HP Tango X stated before and Canon's recent TS9521C Crafters AIO, the TS9520 is really a"clever" printer primarily because it interacts using either Amazon's Alexa or Google's Assistant Smart Home appliances, though other programs that encourage IFTTT (If This Then ) scripting technologies, are readily available.
IFTTT scripts facilitate easy, automated workflow profiles, or printer programs, that passion when your printer receives a string of code out of a voice-activated device. In short, IFTTT empowers hands-free printing. When used along with this TS9520's very own printer programs along with other automation characteristics, when you say something like,"Google, inquire Canon Printer (or anything you name it) to publish photographs from Facebook," the printer arrives to life--without you're having to get up from the sofa.
Like the majority of other TS-series models, Canon speeds the TS9520 at 15 monochrome pages per minute (ppm) and 10ppm such as colour. I tested it from our standard Intel Core i5-equipped testbed PC operating Windows 10 Expert . The TS9520 printed our 12-page monochrome Microsoft Word text document in the normal rate of 13.4ppm, or about a-page-and-a-half slower than its score, however, 0.8ppm quicker compared to TS9521C. Epson's photo-centric wide-format ET-7750 managed 13.8ppm and Brother's office-oriented MFC-J6935DW (also wide-format) published the same text pages at 16.5ppm.
I should also point out that, although these have been tabloid-size printers as most of the family members and home-based-office printing (and many printing generally ) are letter-size, I utilized 8.5-by-11-inch test documents. Tabloid-size pages include twice a printable area, therefore, with about the identical proportion of policy, they should take about twice as long to print.
Within the next portion of my tests, I printed several colorful and complicated Acrobat, Excel, and PowerPoint files and subsequently combined the results of people in printing the prior 12-page text file. The Canon Pixma TS9520 churned at the speed of 4.7ppm. That's a negligible 0.3ppm faster compared to TS9520, but 3.3ppm supporting the Epson ET-7750 and more than twice slower than the MFC-J6935DW.
Eventually I clocked the TS9520 (and its TS9521C sibling) when printing our vivid and extremely detailed 4-by-6-inch snapshots at a mean of 23 minutes. That score defeat all but the MFC-J6935DW's 7 minutes, with the HP Tango X bringing up the back at 59 seconds. Anything quicker than 60 seconds on this part of our tests is adequate.
As for print quality, as I've mentioned several times earlier, few machines publish better than five- and six-ink Pixmas. The TS9520 churns out clear, well-shaped, and extremely legible common serif and sans-serif down fonts to 6 points, along with the several not-so-common cosmetic and theme fonts we examine looked great, too. The company graphics, charts, graphs, and embedded photographs I printed were more than attractive enough for both external and internal business usage.
It did, however, struggle with a particularly challenging PowerPoint handout with a dark-green-to-black gradient-background. Instead of flowing easily from 1 colour to the next, the gradient banded and hauled clearly from shade to shade. This ink dispersing flaw wasn't necessarily garish or even unsightly, but it was obviously not the intended effect.
This brings us to the TS9520's photo output. There are other Pixmas and rival consumer-grade photo machines from Epson that print unique photos. The TS9520's photos hold up well against all of them. As I said concerning the TS9521C lately, although the six-ink TS9120 and TS8120 do appear to, even on close inspection, feature a slightly higher variety of colors, I don't have any complaints regarding this AIO's photograph output.
No Bulk Ink Choice
With no discounted-ink incentive, consumer-grade photograph printers such as this one cost a lot to work with. The HP Tango X's Instant Ink incentive, on the other hand, offers ink as low as 3.5 cents per colour or black webpage; and the Epson ET-7750's EcoTank system prints black pages for less than one cent and each colour page for slightly more than 1 cent.
With how Canon packs its own ink cartridges and sparks its per-cartridge yields, '' I can not calculate running costs with exactly the identical formulation PCMag uses for other printers. Suffice it to state that the TS9520's running costs are high enough that it is going to cost you a lot more to work with than either of these printers cited in the prior paragraph. My educated guess is that black webpages cost about twice as much compared to Instant Ink-compatible printers and 10 or more occasions on EcoTank models. The TS9520 is clearly not a robot that is homogenous.
Outstanding for Low-Volume Offices
Though the Canon Pixma TS9520 might not be the least expensive printer to function, the price of consumables won't strike on your wallet too hard over time if you don't print thousands of pages a month. And its own abundance of excellent features far outweighs any concerns: In addition to having an superb photo printer, it is also a versatile office AIO, which makes it our new preferred family- and home-office consumer-grade photo printer. If you are into scrapbooking and other types of crafts and arts, the TS9521C is a excellent choice too.
