Small business/home offices

With excellent performance and productivity equality, the Canon PIXMA TR8620 is the ultimate compact home office printer. Multifunctional features include a built-in 20-sheet ADF scanner and automatic duplex printing system, allowing it to seamlessly integrate into the work environment, separating work from home.

The black page yield of the printer is very low. But on the other hand, it produces a lot of color documents and has a lot of connectivity options that make it a unique printer in comparison to the others.


Canon PIXMA TR8620 has a flatbed and AD-F scanner that makes it very useful for students. It is a good value for money in general. It prints, scans, copies, and faxes via SD cards and Wi-Fi. However, the first page does take a long time to print out. A student can print all their assignments using the built-in auto document feeder. This includes double-sided assignments as well.


Here we are gonna compare Canon PIXMA TR8620 with its closest rivals. The first one is the Canon PIXMA TR8520 which is an all-in-one wireless color printer, loaded with plenty of facilities. And another one is Canon PIXMA TR4520.

As compared to the Canon PIXMA TR4520, the Canon PIXMA TR8520 is much better overall. In addition to having a touchscreen display, the TR8520 also has a much higher page yield for both color and black, so it has a lower cost per print. There are also more connectivity options with the TR8520, and it prints faster as well. In the TR4520, however, there is slightly less color accuracy.

With its solid plastic construction, the Canon PIXMA TR8520 printer is well designed. However, some parts of the input and output trays feel thin and flimsy, while the scanner lid can be raised slightly to accommodate books. You can also conveniently access the ink cartridges by lifting the scanner cover.

This printer has a decent inkjet cartridge system. The color cartridges allow you to replace only the color that is out of stock, which is convenient. While the black pages of this printer are not very large, the color cartridges are much better.

In terms of print speed, the Canon PIXMA TR8520 takes a while to print out black-only documents, which might be stressful when it’s just a matter of minutes before you hand in your final essay. For a 4″ x 6″ photo, this printer takes forever.

In the Canon PIXMA TR4520, there are some disappointing features. While the scanner lid can be raised to accommodate thicker items like magazines, there’s also an output tray on the lid, so the paper can move around as you lift it.

Canon’s PIXMA TR4520 printer does not have a good cartridge system. You will have to replace the cartridges frequently as they have low yields. As an upside, you can use high-yield cartridges, and the printer will accept third-party cartridges. However, this may void the manufacturer’s warranty.

In spite of the fact that this printer has a nice picture quality, there is a concern regarding its printing speed. It takes a while before the first page comes out, and subsequent pages are not much faster. Also, it takes over a minute for a photo to appear.
