Canon Pixma iX6820 Wireless Printer


Canon Pixma iX6820 Wireless Printer

The Canon Pixma iX6820 Wireless Printer has a similar feature set as the Canon Pixma iX6520 Inkjet Business Printer. A somewhat faster pace, slightly lower text quality, and slightly higher photo quality are among the few differences. The addition of both wired and wireless network support is the most major change. There aren’t many single-function printers that are both inexpensive enough for a home office and capable of printing on paper sizes other than letter and legal.

Wi-Fi support is one benefit the iX6820 has over the Epson WF-7010. It also has some mobile printing features, such as printing from the cloud, AirPrint support, and printing over Wi-Fi from Android and iOS phones and tablets using Canon’s free apps. You must connect the printer directly to a network for any of these mobile print functions to work.

Paper handling isn’t one of the company’s strong suits. The good news is that you may print up to 13 by 19 inches on both tabloid and super tabloid paper. Unfortunately, the printer just has one paper tray, thus you won’t be able to load both letter and larger-size paper at the same time. A duplexer (for two-sided printing) is also missing, even as an option.

Because it only has one tray, the Pixma iX6820 is best used as a second printer to augment a letter-size printer. Furthermore, the tray only holds 150 sheets, which would be insufficient if it were your sole printer. However, as a backup printer for large-format printing, that shouldn’t be an issue. The Epson WF-7010, by comparison, has two 250-sheet trays and a duplexer, and it can handle paper up to 13 by 44 inches.

Initial Setup

The dimensions are 6.3 by 23 by 12.3 inches (HWD), However, if you have the necessary space, the setup is pretty straightforward. You must hold a button-down and count flashes on the status light to alter the printer’s default network connection configuration (which is set to allow it to connect via Wi-Fi) to allow it to connect via Ethernet instead. Unfortunately, Canon does not include this information in the quick-start guide, and the printer does not come with a mystical decoder ring. According to a corporate representative, the information appears on-screen during normal setup, but if you miss it or can’t execute the setup program, as in my situation, you’ll be left with no idea how to get the wired network connection to operate. Switching between wired and wireless settings is simple once you understand the method. According to a Canon spokesman, the company is looking into possible solutions to the problem.

The printer’s output quality was mixed, with text and graphics scoring slightly below average and photographs scoring slightly above. For tabloid-capable inkjet printers, text production was at the low end of the spectrum. As long as you don’t need small fonts, most people would consider them acceptable for most business needs.
