Canon TS9120 Inkjet Printer Review

TS9120 RED 1 xlFinally a decent inkjet printer that has all the capabilities you need in smart compact design. The Canon TS9120 is a great little printer that can serve the whole family.  It's quiet, relatively quick and produces great photos.  From unboxing to first print took about 20 minutes.  Plus this printer is smart and knows when to use the different paper sources without demanding I ok the choice each time. 

We've tested printers in the past that a complete pain to use, looking at you Epson, because the machine was too stupid to figure out it had 4x6 stock in 1 slot and 8x10 in the other.  The first test we did was exactly that. We loaded regular paper in the front and 4x6 glossy in the back.  Then using the iPad, macbook, PC and phones from Sony, Samsung and Apple we sent mutiple images and documents to the printer.  So yes, mom can printer photos form the phone and junior can printer homework from the iPad.  As long as you keep the proper types of paper stocked and an eye on the ink it couldn't be easier and we'll keep everyone happy.

The quality produced by this little printer is great.   We did a test comparing phots from the Costco lab to photos printed by the TS9120 on Glossy Canon paper.  It's really hard to see any difference.  And with a little color and saturation tweaking you get really emulate lab results on 4x6 paper.  Bigger prints look great too.  It's actually amazing the quality this little unit can crank out.  

At first the design seemed a little funky.  But it's actually quite smart and allows this printer to take up minimal space.  It folds up into a neat little box when necessary and automatically extends the output tray as needed when printing.  The angle of the display in front is adjustable and easy to figure out.  The scanner and copier features are just a bonus in this case and work fine as well.  

But not all is sweetness and light.  This printer has a sensor issue.  Several times it claimed there was a paper jam when there was no paper jam and refused to print.  Like a scene our of "Office Space" we nearly took a bat to this printer in frustration.  So while we love this little guy for the functionality and low price we hope our paper jam experience is just an anomaly.

Not that it matters, but we like the red color.  We have enough black plastic in our lives and this little printer looks nice in red.  Over the years we've tested countless injet printers from Epson, HP, Brother and Canon.  This is a good one.  When it's error free it works well.  Simple to set up, has great connectivity, produces really nice photos and the price is right at $99.  Canon is going to sell a whole lot of these.
