Just like the XP-7100, the TS6320 is a five-ink machine with wonderful print high quality; additionally like most family-oriented photograph printers, it is considerably costly to make use of. Even so, this Pixma is a superb selection for a den or micro workplace with average document- and photograph-printing wants.

The Pixma TS6320, an improve to Canon’s TS6220, is one in all 4 just lately upgraded TS-series fashions, which incorporates the Pixma TS8320 reviewed right here a couple of months in the past and the soon-to-be reviewed TS3320 and TS5320.

Measuring 5.6 by 14.2 by 14.9 inches (HWD) and weighing 13.9 kilos, the printer is a bit longer and heavier than its predecessor, however considerably smaller and lighter than the Epson XP-7100 talked about earlier. One motive is that the Epson comes with a 30-page, single-pass auto-duplexing automated doc feeder (ADF) for scanning two-sided multipage paperwork, whereas the Canon has solely a flatbed scanner that obliges you to place pages on the glass for scanning or copying one after the other.

To get a TS-series Pixma with an ADF, you may must step all the way in which as much as as much as the wide-format, six-ink TS9520, or you’ll be able to go together with one in all Canon’s extra business-centric Pixma TR fashions, such because the Editors’ Selection TR8520. Nevertheless, whereas the TR-series models print first rate photographs, they aren’t photo-optimized five- or six-ink AIOs because the TS-series are.

Like most different photo-centric Pixmas nowadays, the TS6320 additionally helps Instagram’s sq. picture media sizes—on this case, 3.5 inches, 5 inches, and seven inches sq.. I do not know of any non-Pixma fashions that assist the sq. format. In contrast to the older Pixma TS6220, nevertheless, the TS6320 cannot print labels on pre-surfaced optical discs. Nor can it print two-sided pages routinely because the TS8320 and different high-end Pixma TS fashions do.

Ample Connectivity and Supporting Apps

Commonplace interfaces embrace 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and connecting to a single PC through USB, in addition to PictBridge wi-fi for printing immediately from a number of Canon cameras. Additionally supported: Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Power), for printing from a number of cellular gadgets concurrently.

Different cellular choices embrace Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Mopria, in addition to a number of Canon cellular picks reminiscent of Pixma Cloud Print and Canon Print App (Android and iOS).

Typical Pixma Print Speeds

Canon charges the TS6320 at 15 monochrome and 10 colour pages per minute (ppm), which is about customary for many TS-series Pixmas. I examined the printer over a USB connection from our customary Intel Core i5 testbed working Home windows 10 Professional. Like its TS6220 predecessor, the TS6320 printed our 12-page Microsoft Phrase check doc at just below 13ppm—really, 12.7ppm, which is 0.2ppm slower than the older mannequin and a couple of.3ppm slower than the Epson XP-7100.

Subsequent, I printed our assortment of full-color Adobe Acrobat and Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint enterprise paperwork containing charts, different enterprise graphics, and embedded photographs, then mixed these outcomes with the Phrase scores to provide you with a complete pace ranking. The Pixma TS6320 managed solely 4.7ppm, which tied its predecessor (and most different TS-series Pixmas) and got here in 2.2ppm behind the XP-7100.

As for our 4-by-6-inch borderless snapshots, the TS6320 printed them in about 20 seconds every, two seconds faster than the TS6220 and 5 seconds forward of the Epson. As we stated about final yr’s mannequin, for residence workplaces that churn out 100 to 200 pages every month, this Pixma needs to be lots quick sufficient.

First-Class Output, Steep Working Prices

Solely a handful of consumer-grade AIOs (besides, maybe, their Epson rivals) print and replica in addition to Canon’s five- and six-ink Pixmas, particularly with regards to photographs. That is to not disparage their textual content, which is well-shaped and extremely legible—greater than appropriate for many residence and small enterprise wants—or graphics, which print with terrific element and minimal banding, in addition to brilliantly true colours and gradients.

However photographs are the place the TS6320 and different high-end Pixmas shine. The borderless 4-by-6-inch and 8-by-10-inch photos I printed had been brightly coloured and extremely detailed, far past what you’d get from most business-oriented four-ink inkjets. If printing photographs is your principal function, the TS6320, like most different Pixma TS fashions, is a terrific consumer-grade selection.

An obstacle of most client photograph printers is that they are costly to make use of. PCMag’s customary methodology for calculating working prices is tripped up by the way in which Canon publishes its ink cartridge yields and the truth that it is a five-ink machine as an alternative of a typical four-ink mannequin, however based mostly on my expertise with these printers, I estimate that black pages will run you about 4 to six cents apiece and colour pages roughly 15 to 17 cents. Photographs, in fact, with their one hundred pc ink protection, value considerably extra.

Today, although, there are different choices. Epson’s five-ink Expression Premium ET-7700 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer, for instance, prices a number of occasions as a lot to purchase, however it delivers black and colour pages for just below and simply over a penny, respectively. It is an excellent different if you happen to plan to print so much. As well as, HP’s four-ink Envy Picture 7155 and a subscription to HP’s Instantaneous Ink program will get you monochrome, colour, and even letter-size photograph pages for as little as 3.5 cents every.

High quality Household and House Workplace Printing

For those who’re on the lookout for a machine for printing household photographs and churning out or copying the occasional doc, five-ink Pixmas just like the TS6320 (and Canon’s barely costlier six-ink fashions such because the TS8320) are wonderful values. In any other case, their excessive working prices consign them to low-volume obligation. If your own home workplace requires a better obligation cycle, machines with lower-cost consumables such because the HP Envy Picture 7155 or the Epson ET-7700 are smart options. If a extra strong characteristic set, together with Ethernet connectivity and an ADF, is engaging to you, the Editors’ Selection-winning, wide-format Pixma TS9520 is one other excellent selection.
