Design and construct
Canon is a miniaturization expert, and come what may, all of those features fit right into a sensitive shoebox-sized unit that is packed tightly sufficient to fit in a desk drawer. Nearly every Pixma TS8151 panel folds or slides to expose access hollow or another paper tray. Our favored layout feature is the manner the paper transport tray routinely slides out on every occasion you print.
The foremost characteristic provided with the aid of Canon above its rival brands is the six cartridge ink machine. The more coloration is grey, which enables Pixma specific shadows and which means you need to replace the black ink tank much less often.
Printing and scanning in complete coloration and with an excessive decision can be executed without problems from a Mac or PC, or a cellular device the use of an associate utility called Canon Print on iOS or Android.
Your connectivity alternatives are entire, with a rectangular USB port, plus a front USB connector for the thumb force and an SD card slot for the camera, while your wireless options include Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and NFC to combine NFC-successful phones.
There are two paper trays that may be loaded concurrently with simple paper and envelopes or picture paper, and the 4.3-inch coloration screen is a touch display. You can use this to access the Canon Cloud Link function which makes it easy to print immediately from social media websites like Instagram. These photos look pretty correct when revealed on a rectangular (thirteen x thirteen cm) picture paper.
Settings and operations
After connecting, we had no problems printing wirelessly from a telephone or Mac, and to replicate and experiment the use of handiest the printer, we discovered the contact screen show as a refreshingly intuitive interface.
The Pixma TS8151 isn’t the fastest inkjet out there, producing mono pages at 15 in keeping with minute, but they appear sharp and black, now not to say regular whenever. Characters appearance a touch heavier than laser printers, however, they also have an appealing black color that might be due to Canon’s unique black pigmentation.
This printer is a bit noisier than the smoothly running HP LaserJet Pro MFP M227fdw that we these days reviewed, but in popular, it runs quietly, in particular, whilst you in reality transfer to the Silent Mode of the machine.
