There are a lot of duplex printers available in the $400 price range, so finding the best duplex printer is pretty hard. The Canon TS6120 is actually pretty good at duplexing, and it is the best printer for heat transfers as well. And its high print resolution also helps it to become the best photo printer at its price bracket.

Why We Like It – Canon TS6120

The Canon Pixma TS6120 wireless inkjet printer is one of the best inkjet printers you can purchase at $400. It’s a perfect fit for a home office or for photo printing. Using the Canon Print app, you can also print from your mobile devices.

Pros
  • Five color ink tank (individual)
  • Support for both Apple Air Print and Google Cloud Print
  • Effortless borderless photo printing
Cons
  • No remote turn on functionality

Speed

Canon doesn’t really advertise the print speed anywhere, not even in the product information. So it should be evident that the print speed isn’t that great. But that’s fine, as it isn’t really made for tackling high volume printing jobs. If you need a high print speed, you should rather go for the Brother HL-L2350DW.

Print Quality

This Canon printer has five individual ink type systems (Black Cyan Magenta Yellow & Pigment Black Ink), so the color accuracy and quality are bound to be good. And on top of that, you get to select up to 4800 x 1200 DPI print resolution. It’s perfect for printing on glossy photo paper. Just make sure to use compatible Canon ink cartridges in order to get the best results, not third party ink cartridges. Also, you should have the latest printer driver installed, which goes without saying. In the optical scan utility, you can select up to 2400 x 1200 DPI.

Efficiency

This wireless printer isn’t that great when it comes to ink efficiency. Granted, it has a five individual ink system inbuilt, as we said before. If, for example, the black ink tank runs out, you can simply replace the black ink tank itself. Still, it consumes just a bit too much ink for our liking. Even the much cheaper Brother MFC-J880DW is more ink efficient than this Canon printer.

Advanced Features

It has support for many different operating systems, including Windows, macOS, and the older mac OS X. And with the wireless network option being Wi Fi, you can perform mobile device printing on it. Just install the Canon Print app on your Android or iOS device, and you should be good to go. Support for both Apple AirPrint & Google Cloud Print is also pretty nice to have bonus additions.

Value

In the United States, you get a one-year limited warranty from Canon if you buy this printer. So overall, it is a pretty good value for money printer for everyone who doesn’t need high print speed. However, if you are still not satisfied with all the given features, just get the Epson WorkForce WF-3540 instead.

Canon TS6120 Wrap Up

The Canon TS6120 comes with a fairly reasonable price tag for the print quality and features it offers. If you need a printer for casual workloads, you won’t be disappointed by it.
