The WorkForce ST-4000 EcoTank Color MFP Supertank Printer from Epson and the HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 All-in-One Printer from HP outperform the TR8620 in a number of crucial categories, including print speed, volume and capacity, feature sets, and running costs. The TR8620 still makes sense for low-volume print and copy scenarios, particularly for home offices that print a lot of photos. An all-in-one color printer featuring a flatbed scanner and an automatic document feeder is the Canon PIXMA TR8620. The color page yield is good, and the cost per print is excellent for photographs and wonderful for color documents. Additionally, it prints stunning images that are vivid and detailed. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct are just a couple of the excellent connectivity options, and it can also print directly from SD cards. Unfortunately, it prints documents very slowly and reproduces colours with only fair accuracy. Even though the black page yield is low and the cartridge is relatively inexpensive, the black page cost-per-print is still excellent. The Canon PIXMA TR8620a recently took the place of this printer, which was discontinued.


The control panel of the TR8620 boasts a sizable 4.3-inch color touchscreen that pivots upward 90 degrees. Only the power button serves as a physical control, but we found the touchscreen to be responsive and the menus to be easy to use. An SD card slot is located at the bottom left of the front panel, allowing for direct printing from a camera’s memory card. Up to 100 sheets of plain paper can be stored in the rear paper tray and primary paper cassette, respectively. Up to 20 sheets of photo paper can be stored in the back paper tray, which is where photo prints should be made. At the base of the machine, next to the output tray, is the paper cassette. Open the cover, which swings outward to act as a support for paper input, to use the ADF that is located on top of the device. Although the TR8620 has a duplexer for two-sided printing, it does not offer automated two-sided scanning. That is, you must run a two-sided document through the ADF twice, scanning one side at a time, in order to generate copies or scans of it. To ensure that you position the paper correctly for a successful scan on the second side, the LCD provides a visual. The TR8620 contains an Ethernet port and a Hi-Speed USB port, and you can use Wi-Fi or Ethernet to connect it to a network (both 2.4GHz and 5GHz are supported). Additionally available is Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity. The body is 17.3 inches wide, 13.8 inches deep, and 7.5 inches high (h). A home inkjet all-in-one printer usually operates like this. Although the declared depth with paper loaded is 14.4 inches, we discovered that when the output tray was extended with the catch folded front and the rear tray leaned back and loaded with paper, the total depth rose to 26 inches. Additionally, the height is increased by an inch when the ADF is opened for usage. However, the most crucial thing is that you have enough vertical clearance so you can lift the lid and place documents on the flatbed scanner glass. The TR8620’s 33.6 kbps modem allows it to send faxes, and its memory can hold up to 99 fax numbers and 250 pages at the most.

Canon Pixma TR8620 review: Display

The LCD screen of the TR8620 is quite good. The large LCD touch screen’s menus are very simple to navigate and are generally easy to see. The menu also provides quick access to copy, scan, fax, and print options, and there are even how-to videos for procedures like unclogging paper jams. Unfortunately, the screen is not touch-responsive and is extremely susceptible to double clicks.


The ADF and duplexer are two characteristics that set this printer apart as office-grade yet still usable at home. With the ADF, this translates to the ability to have up to 20 sheets automatically fed in at once, enabling quick and simple document scanning and copying. The duplexer allows for two-sided printing, which can help you conserve paper and space in printed documents. Two different paper types can be readily available thanks to the 100 sheet cassette in the front and the additional 100 sheet feeder in the back. The availability of a free app is particularly beneficial because it enables quick printing from a smartphone without turning on a computer. Printing and scanning are both supported by the Canon PIXMA TR8620, which is especially useful if you want to print images straight from your smartphone. When using the WPS button option, the LCD screen can be used to quickly and easily set up other useful settings, such as WiFi. With two options for black—a document-focused pigment-based black and a glossy photo–specific dye-based black—ink is divided into cartridges for cyan, magenta, and yellow as well as cyan, magenta, and yellow.


A printer with an exceptional level of connection is the Canon Pixma TR8620. Since the printer has built-in WiFi and can be connected to your home network via a mobile app, printing from any location in the world won’t be an issue. Additionally, you can use it as an AirPrint-compatible printer to wirelessly print documents and photos directly from your iPhone or iPad. Look no further than this model’s Cloud Print feature, though, which enables users to send their own photos or text directly from the cloud onto their own inkjet printer via Wi-Fi connection, if you’re searching for something more specific than just wireless printing from a distance. also you will read our article on Canon Pixma TR8620 review.

Canon Pixma TR8620 review: Print speed

Printing may be completed in as little as 30 seconds thanks to the Canon Pixma TR8620. Additionally, it has an automatic document feeder that enables you to insert paper in any format and continue printing after you’re done. You have two options for inserting paper: manually or using the additional trays that came with your printer. It takes some work on your part to manually feed paper, but it is possible if you have prior printer experience. If not, we advise using a tray-based system like those provided by HP, Samsung, and Epson models.

Copy speed

The TR8620’s TR8620 is arguably best for copying quickly. The TR8620 copied a color page from the flatbed in 20.5 seconds, which is substantially quicker than the industry standard of 28.7 seconds. It copied a page of text in 10.8 seconds as opposed to the industry standard of 16 seconds. In contrast, the Editor’s Choice TS9120 made text copies more slowly (at 14 seconds), but color copies more quickly (at 17.3 seconds). The Brother MFC-J995DW was slower to copy text (12.7 seconds), but faster to copy color documents, while the HP Envy 7855 was slower in both tests, at 15.7 seconds and 24.1 seconds, respectively. The TR8620 copied a five-page text document using its ADF in 45 seconds (6.7 ppm). At 7 ppm, the Brother MFC-J995DW was a little quicker. The TR8620 does not provide duplex scanning and copying automatically. In contrast, it provides manual duplex copying and scanning, requiring the user to insert the page into the ADF twice—once for each side. The on-screen LCD instructions make it simple to follow how to properly orient the document for the second scan. Without taking into account the time it took to reinsert the document in the ADF, the Pixma TR8620 copied a 10-page text document (five double-sheets) in 5 minutes, or 2 pages per minute. The Brother MFC-J805DW, in contrast, which does provide automatic duplex copying, was considerably quicker, producing two-sided text copies at 3.1 ppm.

When put through its paces in testing, the Canon PIXMA TR8620 prints documents more quickly than the industry standard. Accordingly, you can anticipate producing documents at a rate of 9.2 pages per minute, or 3.2 pages per minute if you include mixed-color graphics. This glossy print service is one of the fastest available, finishing a letter-sized photo in just two minutes and four seconds, significantly faster than the industry standard of four minutes and three seconds. Although the speed is great, how is the print quality? The text was perfectly clear, with well-defined margins and dark letters. With only a little banding on darker regions, colour graphics were likewise respectable, with true colours and discernible textures. Glossy images maintain great quality with clear detail, vibrant colour, and exceptionally smooth transitions yet being quick. Copies were excellent, accurately reproducing the original in both text and pictures. Nevertheless, when making copies with the ADF, the text seemed slightly larger than when using the flatbed. Although there is a copying menu on the screen, it doesn’t offer enough control over cropping, so you might have to use an app or a computer connection to get the best controls in this case.

Scan speed

The TR8620 scanned color photos and documents more quickly than the industry standard. It took 59 seconds to scan an 8 by 10 photo and save it as a 600 dpi JPEG, which is quicker than the industry average of 65.8 seconds. In contrast, the Brother MFC-J995DW and Canon TS9120 completed the test in 37.8 and 38.5 seconds, respectively. The same was true with 300 dpi black-and-white scanning to PDF. The TR8620 completed a scan in 8.8 seconds as opposed to the industry standard of 11 seconds. The same scan was completed by the Canon TS9120 in 7.7 seconds. also you will learn our article on Canon Pixma TR8620 review.

Canon Pixma TR8620 review: Software

The TR8620 was easy to set up: Install the ink cartridges and paper, take off some tape, and then turn the power on. You print a printhead alignment page, scan it, and then proceed as directed on the screen. To download and install the software, follow the instructions on the Canon website found in the printed quick start guide. The setup of the TR8620 for our wireless network was simple and quick. Er selected WPS (push-button method) after navigating to the Wi-Fi setup in the LAN settings on the TR8620’s LCD screen and pressing the corresponding button on our wireless router. The process of connecting our iPhone to the printer was simple. A QR code can be found on the Wi-Fi Direct LCD menu for the TR8620. We simply took a photo of it using our iPhone, which prompted us to connect to the printer’s Wi-Fi Direct network. Starting up takes only 3.7 seconds. It only took 10 seconds longer than usual to make a black-and-white copy, which was delivered before many models even gave you a home screen to start operating.


The MSRP of the Canon PIXMA TR8620 printer is $179.99, which is reasonable given the range of functions it offers. Given the size, color, and app support of the touchscreen interface, it is nicely constructed and has a decent appearance. The expense of running the ink is more expensive. Even if you choose one of Canon’s ink tanks with the highest yield, you’ll still pay 7.3 cents for a monochrome page and 12.3 cents for a color page. However, a four by six inch photo will cost 25 cents, which is more affordable. Overall, the cost of replacing the ink on this printer is high.


For use in a small business or at home, the Canon PIXMA TR8620 printer is adequate. It prints papers in black and colour quite slowly, produces few black pages, and takes a little while to print the first page. The automatic document feeder can’t duplex scan, and the output tray and scanner lid feel flimsy. On the plus side, it produces a sizable number of colour documents and offers a remarkable selection of connectivity options.
