Canon Pixma TS3320 Reviews

The Canon Pixma TS3320 is a basic printer, No-frills, all-in-one. Priced for a few $39, this entry level template offers printing, scanning and copying. The TS3320 keeps the operation simple, using only two ink cartridges (black and tri-color) instead of individual cartridges. You do not find any of the fancy Extras to see on the best printers. For example, there is no second input tray for photo card, automatic document feeder (ADF) for MultiPage copying, nor Duplepsy to make two-sided marks.

You can connect to the wireless TS3320, or via the USB port. The printer is compatible with a mobile device by using the company's Android/iOS App, although I couldn't get an iPhone 7 to work (more on that later).

Canon Pixma TS3320 Design
The Control Panel with TS3320's is located in the upper part of the device body, on the left of the scanning bed. There are a few physical buttons: two of them start a wireless connection or with a network or smartphone, respectively. Two additional buttons bring up on the small-crystal liquid display screen (LCD) – or the settings or Status menu information. The small monochrome screen of 1.5 inches does not have a light, and can be difficult to read in an available discer-lit space. Besides the simple copy function, you will probably want to operate the TS3320 from a PC, and not on its own.

The paper is loaded in the 60 paper paper tray on the back of the unit. The tray can also keep up to 20 sheets of a 6-inch paper or 10 sheet of 5-by-inch photo paper. You must use a shiny photo card; The printer does not support the matte paper, although it works with the more exotic magnetic and resticable varieties.

The output tray draws out the front of the printer, under a large inlet in the body. To swap the ink cartridges, reach inside this cavity and swap the lid to expose the ink cartridge bay.

The TS3320 is neither compact nor very large for all-one. With the retractable paper trays, it measures 17.2 inches wide than 12.5 inches in depth; He 5.8 inches tall. With the extended trays, the TS3320 becomes 21.8 inches deep and 8.4 inches tall. Missing duplexer and ADF, this unit is quite lightweight, in pounds of eight and a half.

This model comes in black, white or red.

Canon Pixma TS3320 Print speed
The TS3320 printed the text document of our five pages at 43.7 seconds (or 6.9 pages per minute [ppm]). This was significantly slower than the mean category of 33.5 seconds, or 9 ppm. The device was extremely slow in colour printing, and turning at one of the lowest times to date on our PDF of six mixed text pages and color graphics: The TS3320 took 4 minutes (1.5 ppm) to print the document. Comparable models printed the same PDF almost twice that speed, and only take 2 minutes and 7 seconds on average, or 2.8 ppm.

The TS3320 could not complete the print speed test of our photos, for which we make a full page picture on a letter-size photo paper (more on that later). So, I did 4-with 6 inch photo prints instead, for comparison.

The TS3320 made of 4-B-6-inch prints in 2 minutes and 1 second. By comparison, most of the models we tested were quicker, although some were slower. Among quicker models was the Canon MG3620, which printed 4-B-6 in seconds only 43, and HP Tango X, over 1 minute and 15 seconds. However, we have seen a slower printing, like now-set up Epson XP-420, which took almost 3 minutes to complete the same task.

Canon Pixma TS3320 Copy Speed and Scan
The color copying was slow. The TS3320 is the second model of the lowest inkjet in the color copying we tested in this category. Over 47 seconds, it was well beyond the average of 27.8 seconds. Only the HP Tango X was slower, in 1 minute and 11 seconds. The choice of Canon's editor drama TS9120 made a copy of the color within 17.3 seconds in our tests — almost three times faster than the TS3320.

The black and white copying was more in the range, but still slightly slow in 19.2 seconds, compared to the average category of 15.8 seconds.

The TS3320 has made a color scan of 600 dots-per-inch (DPI) with JPEG format with approximately average speed. In minutes 1 and 1.7 seconds, it came under the average of 1 minutes and 7.7 seconds. By comparison, the choice of the Canon editor TS9120 made the same scan in just 37.8 seconds.

The printer is quickly scanned in black and white format to PDF in 300 DPI. He picked a scan within 7.5 seconds, compared with an average of 11 seconds; The TS9120 was rapidly similar, in 7.7 seconds.

Canon Pixma TS3320 Print Quality
Text Prints was not extremely sharp, but adequate. On a close examination, letters in textual documents had soft edges, with an anti-inking ink spray around them. Letterforms in our PDF text document look sharper, by comparison.

A printed graphics on plain paper seemed attractive, with cutting details and transitions with a smooth half tone. A banding, however, was clearly visible around our graphics marks.

Because the TS3320 does not print on a glossy letter size card, we were allowed to judge the quality of the photos on 5-B-7 inch and the 4-B-6 inch Prints. These Prints seemed very attractive, with strong details and saturation of the natural looking color. Although the device does not support the matte paper, I was pleased with the view of the print I made on matte paper using simple card settings.

The quality of the copy was similar to quality printing: The test looked slightly rough around the edges, and the graphics seemed very attractive — but the lightweight kiss was rotating on some pictures. The bentry was more pronounced on photos or artwork with deep, versus drawings with a flat view. The same was true in color and black and white.

Scans of photos in JPEG format and the documents in PDF format appeared very true to the original – in general sharp. Color photos have been reproduced with accurate exposure and well-saturated colors, although some fine details in shading areas have lost. Black and white scare of the graphics have also lost some details from the originals, in darkened areas.

Canon Pixma TS3320 Cost of ink and yield
The TS3320 uses two ink cartridges: a black pigment cartridge and a dye-based ink triulur. Three levels of ink cartridges are available, but the least expensive ones come with very high cost per page. Using the colour cartridges PG-243 black and CL-244, the costs per page are 16 cents for the test and 37 cents for the graph. Ouch.

Bumping to the black cartridge PG-245 brings the cost test page to 10 cents — but that's still a way north of the average of 7.2 cents for a standard cartridge. Using the colour cartridge CL-246, the costs per coloring page are 22.8 cents, versus the average of 19.8 cents using standard cartridges.

Using the high-performance cartridges, the TS3320 has costs per page of 8.7 cents for the test and 18.7 cents for color. The averages for competing models using high-performance cartridges are 5.6 cents (test) and 14.4 cents (color). If you make a lot of printing, those ink costs increase.

Using the basic scan, printing the cost of photos of 4-B-6 inches a whopping 67.5 cents (if you buy them individually). Using colour cartridges CL-246 and PG-245, 4 of-6 requires 43 cents ' the value of ink. The cartridges XL Print 4-B-6 for cents 34.3.

Combo packs can lower those costs per page a few — in theory. PG-243 (black) and CL-244 are worth a total of $36.98 individually, and costs of two packages $26.99. However, the high costs per page of these 100 pages ' performance cartridges are already making them difficult to recommend.

Disappointing, two packages of higher-capacity cartridges will not lower the printing costs. PG-245 black cartridge (180 pages) and the colour cartridge CL-246 XL (pages 300) cost $54.99 when purchased with 50 sheets of 4-B-6 inch photo paper. But purchase them only individually $47.98. The Canon ONLINE store does not make clear if the package includes a standard photo card or photo card along with glossy II. But or way, it is not an agreement. A 100-Pack of 4-B-6 inch photo paper plus the glossy costs of a II $10.99. The same regular cost pack of photo paper $5.99. Maths does not match.

Canon Pixma TS3320 Setup and Software
The first step in setting up the TS3320 is simple. Removes a small number of tape and packing material, and install ink cartridge. Setting up a USB connection with a Windows 10 laptop, a direct account to download the ONLINE software in IJ. Start. Canon.

In my first attempt to print, however, I got an error message, because one cartridge was not completely seated. The ink cartridge bay is pretty deep inside the body, following a folding door. Reaching inside and installing the cartridges is slightly inefficient: you want to press the cartridge in (front) and press it a little.

As well mentioned in the Print Speed section, the TS3320 could not make a picture of a full page photo on a size sheet that letters (and shining even, 4-B-6 and 5-B-7 sizes). Trying to print on a letter size photo card caused the "conflict fixation of another-printing but not specify-what-and one the print driver-to------------------------------- The replacement of "other settings guts shrink to good, without Borders and a kind of shiny paper do not solve the issue.

The company sent us a second model text, but the same test had not yet failed. I tried to make a 4-by-6-inch photo print on a shiny paper of a letter size, but received an error message saying that the media type and paper size were not correctly fixed.

It is noteworthy, for photo-print enthusiasts, that the TS3320 does not support printing on matte paper.

To set the device with iPhone 7, I scanned the QR code in the printed manual, which took me in the download of the iOS App (there is also a QR code on a sticker on the printer body). Scan that took me to a page in Safari and started the Setup process. However, the Canon App said that the printer could not be found. Holding the Mobile connection button on the printer also failed.

Oddly, the TS3320 did not show in the list of WiFi network printers in iOS. But the connection failed every time you entered my network password. The LCD of the printer said "E36 ", which I had to look up ONLINE; The definition simply said that the wireless connection failed. The second Test unit also failed to appear in the Canon App. And, although the printer showed in iOS, I had not yet been able to print to him from the iPhone 7.

The TS3320 supports Mopria on Android devices, although we do not. The specifications say that the device also supports Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant – and IFTTT (if then that) integration.

The apparatus began slowly, taking about 12.8 seconds before the sounds of the sound priming are wound up and the power light stopped flashes. Making a black and white copy right out of the door took a little longer than usual, which is not surprising. Instead of making the copy in the 19.2 normal seconds, the first copy took about 25.5 seconds to do.

Bottom Line
The TS3320 keep us simple, on many features aimed at portraits-print enthusiasts and Busy home offices. The low forward price is enticing, considering having high-quality pictures of the photos and scans. However, the text and printing of the plain paper graphics were halfway.

Mediocre performance makes TS3320 away from versatile. The device scans quickly in black and white, but otherwise slowly moves along the board, and suitable for occasional duty only. The problems you encountered in two test units suggest that all this could be prone to a huge comfort error. No text unit does not print a photo on a shiny paper of letter size. And, no test unit works with iPhone 7, even when the phone was able to detect. The autonomous operation is a little bit irk, relying on a small segment of 1.5-inch LCD without light to help you read it.

The costs of ink are handily above the average with standard cartridges and XL. But, if you make the purchase error of ink cartridges with the lowest capacity, the expenses per page are really high. Youd Think combo pack of cartridges and photo card saves money, but it won't.

All these deficiencies make the TS3320 difficult to recommend. However, if the $39 price tag is still there, it can work in favour of your pocketbook. Compared to editor option $150 Canon draught TS9120, TS3320 Average 2.1 more in ink expenses per page. If you don't print a lot, it can work in your favor: to eat up to the $111 price difference, you have to print almost 5,300 pages. visit IJ Start Canon TS3320 to get more support.
