Consensus

our Verdict

Thanks to printing speeds of 11.7 ppm in black and 3.97 ppm in color, which rank average for its category, the Canon PIXMA TR8620a printer is good for home and small-office use. This printer has a 100-page front cassette and a 100-page rear cassette, which makes it an ideal option for big document processing jobs.

Users will love its printing quality, generating high-quality documents and photos at up to 4800 × 1200 dpi resolutions. Its flatbed scanner with an automatic document feeder will appeal to people who have bulk scanning jobs. This device also faxes and copies at speeds of about 14 ppm. It supports automatic duplex printing, offering economical operation. However, if you prefer a printer with bigger 500-page capacity input trays, check out our Epson Workforce Pro WF-7840 review.
