Ordinance Pixma TS Wireless Inkjet AllinOne Printer Review PC Magazine official statement

“The least-expensive all-in-one printer (AIO) in Canon’s new Pixma TS series, the Pixma TS5020 Wireless All-in-One Printer ($99.99), is a low-cost, low-volume model designed for home use. A primary difference between it and the pricier and more feature-rich TS9020 and TS8020 (the latter an Editors’ Choice) is that the TS5020 uses five inks rather than six.
Unlike another Editors’ Choice, the Brother MFC-J985DW (an entry-level office-centric AIO), none of these Pixmas come with automatic document feeders (ADFs), making them less suitable for home-based office use. Like the TS8020, though, the TS5020’s text and photo output is very strong, but it did struggle some in testing when printing dark fills and backgrounds in Excel charts and PowerPoint handouts. Otherwise, it’s an inexpensive alternative to the TS8020 for low-volume printing of photos and documents for home users.
Design and Features
Like the other TS-series Pixmas, the TS5020 performs three functionsu2014print, scan, and copyu2014and comes in three colors: black (the one reviewed here), white, and brown. Unlike the other TS models, though, the TS5020 has only one paper input source, a tray that extends out from the rear of the chassis and holds 100 sheets (or 20 sheets of premium photo paper). The TS9020 and the TS8020 come with not only a rear tray but also a 100-sheet cassette up front. In addition, at 5 by 14.7 by 12.5 inches (HWD) and weighing a slight 12.1 pounds, it’s also the smallest of the bunch and thereby petite enough to fit comfortably on most desktops. The control panel consists of a 3-inch color non-touch LCD that you navigate with four directional buttons and an OK button for executing commands. There are four other buttons on the panel: Power, Back, Stop and, Start. As on the other TS-series models, the control panel tilts up for easier use, but on the TS9020 and TS8020 the output trays deploy on demand, tilting the panel upwards automatically.
Basic co
ectivity consists of USB and Wi-Fi, as well as several mobile and cloud co
ection features, including AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Mopria, as well as Canon’s own Pixma Cloud Link, Canon Print, and Wireless PictBridge for printing directly from specific Canon digital cameras. You can also print from several flavors of SD card and scan to a network drive or email. The SD card slot is located in the front bottom-left corner of the chassis, next to the output tray.
Unlike the TS9020 and TS8020 Pixmas, the TS5020 ca
ot print on CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs, nor does it (as the other two do) support near field communication (NFC) for peer-to-peer co
ections from your mobile device. Even so, Canon’s apps provide adequate mobile co
ectivity. It’s also important to note that all these TS Pixmas support Instagram’s 5-by-5-inch square photograph format. As it has done with the other TS-series Pixmas, as well as the relatively new G-Series Pixmas, such as the Pixma G1200 MegaTank Printer and Pixma G3200 Wireless MegaTank All-in-One Printer, Canon publishes neither maximum monthly duty cycle nor recommended monthly print volume specifications for the TS5020.
