Pixma TS5120 is an entry level printer that provides a basic set of features at a bargain price. It’s a compact and light all-in-one printer, measuring 5.8 by 16.8 by 12.5 inches (HWD) and weighing 14.3 pounds. It has a simple, attractive design, with rounded corners.
Paper capacity is 200 sheets, between a 100-sheet main tray and a 100-sheet rear feeder (which can also fit up to 20 sheets of letter-size photo paper). This is very good for a budget inkjet all-in-one.
The TS5120 has just two ink tanks—one black, the other combining the cyan, magenta, and yellow colors.
The TS5120 can connect directly to a computer via USB, or to a network via Wi-Fi, and also supports printing from or scanning to a mobile device from the Canon Print app. It also supports Pixma Cloud Link, which enables you to access your files directly from a variety of photo-sharing, social networking and storage sites.
Budget inkjet all-in-ones are not known for their document-printing speed and this one is no exception. Producing text-only documents, the TS8120 averaged 12.5 pages per minute (ppm), and at 4.3ppm in printing full-color documents like PDF, PowerPoint, and Excel files.
All in all, the Canon Pixma TS5120 is fine for light-duty use, if there’s no need for Ethernet or fax. It has good paper capacity and decent speed, While text quality is very good, the photo prints lack the vibrancy of the higher-end models in its series, though they’re fine for casual use or distribution.
